The CSV Oberon by Colourbrand The CSV Oberon by Colourbrand
This is my interpretation of a new battle cruiser commissioned by ComStar prior to the Word of Blakes’ assault and conquest of Terra, forcing the most powerful Inner Sphere faction out of their home system: Sol.

It is called the CSV Oberon and it’s designed to hunt down and destroy warships; fitted with the latest and some innovative tech to achieve its goals, it had to flee the system or it would fall either into Robe hands or be destroyed.

It’s the story of its crew and this unique war machine as they travel across the Inner Sphere to regroup with ComStar forces on Tukayyid and protect this advanced warship at all costs.

Think Andromeda + New BSG + B5 + Farscape + Star Trek but in the BT universe.

The Oberon may be named after a fairy king in Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but only a fool would treat this mighty ship with no respect.

I would go into detail about its abilities and functions but that would not be fair on the designer of this magnificent machine as well as the scribe behind the entire concept – :icondsherratt74:

I based the ship off his inspirations for the design – namely the Re-Imagined Battlestar Galactica and the Omega Class Destroyer from Babylon 5.

To see the beastie and its capabilities here are a few links

Surrounding this monster are another couple of his creations – Firestorm and Tiger Shark class fighters.

I wonder where the idea of the Firestorm came from eh? ;)

Seriously he is a talented soul so please pop over and check out his stuff!

As for this, I did this to experiment with hull textures and layouts. Also its a good idea, hence why I did it.

Enjoy!

NB - As a result :icondsherratt74: has made a 3D model of her - but retitled her Titania; [link]

Please check her out as well as this magnificent man's fantastic gallery :D

For a Battletech ship, this monster has some pretty predatory lines! The running lights add character to the vessel, and the dropships do an excellent job of giving an idea of scale for her!

I've not been the biggest fan of warships, but when I see one that makes me want her, I'm sold! Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece of work!

I am very glad you like this and I am glad that the dropship does give the scale intended. However, please pop over to my friend's page and its all there in an impressive array of CGI delight.

It will also tell you the firepower and protection this baby wields. Very impressive stuff!!

It is a pleasure to do so sir - and a pleasure to share :)

Thank you very much for popping by :D most appreciated :D

Fabulous work, here! You've really amazed me! :D

The Oberon here is so realistic, it could have been made in 3D. Shading is terrific,
but the placement of the lights on the hull really just ties it together.

You've got his design down here- it looks exactly like the Oberon. Very intimidating,
I'd hate to see something like that in my quadrant!

Just marvellous, sir! :)

The sheen as you pointed out for me did it too - and that is when the pic gelled.

Cool image. Love that back lighting. The design has a very B-5 feel to me... but you do note it was one of your influences.
The drive flares and "space fog" came out quite nice!
