Have you considered rendering this ship without the standard red markings? The early Imperial aesthetic would better match your other capital ships, as well as stand out from the many other Clone Wars-era images.

First the Mandator III, now the venator, this all quite feels like fractal’s “Alright fine!” to the community requests, doesn’t it? :p

a Venator is a surprise to be sure but a welcome one.

it’s a pity that we waited so long… My son has already built a shipmodel a year ago. Now it is already building shipmodel Belator

When I see Fractals’ beauties I just wonder how much would it cost to make my favorite ship come to life from all sides.

I think it’s easily in the thousands of dollars for a fully detailed model.

I have one underway that’s a modified existing design, and it’s in that ballpark

He said he wont make one unless paid for it, didnt he?

Also, Raptors are exceptionally meh TIE design in my opinion. I get that you have to keep things familiar to slap the name TIE onto something, but wow that thing is simple.

I could see Fractal Kitbashing parts of a TIE Advanced X1 (for the rare shielded raptor) and giving it a far more intricate personality.

Yeah, I did not factured in what Fractal can do to it (as he did with the Howlrunner). On the other hand though, TIE Raptor is very simple in its appearance. So simple that, imo, this is the most limiting factor in what is possible to change with it still being TIE Raptor. (Not sure if I can phrase it properly.)

@Ryadra
meh. The Eclipse I has been done so many times. I would prefer it if he made the Eclipse Mk II. Prior to EckhartsLadder and EC Henry on making Battle of the Dreadnoughts, there really was no official ship model other than the comic.

I’m not complaining mind you. I just kinda expect to wake up in a sweat at any moment.

I wonder how fractal will implement the 52 point defense laser turrets that never show up in any iteration of the Venator I’ve seen. I also wonder if he’ll have any hints of those deck guns we saw in episode 3 in this iteration of the Venator. Super exciting.

I’m also interested in how he’ll portray the artillery cannons that that the venators use for deck guns.

They are there on the crossection.
Look like 5 inch guns in the trench.

Wow, how did I never notice them? I’ve swooned at the Venator’s cross-section multiple times but never saw those dual laser turrets before. Thanks for pointing them out!

I really hope in fractal’s iteration all 8 of the heavy dual turbolaser batteries can fire forward at the same time.

I take back my whiny thoughts of, “It’s been a month without new fractal works,” after seeing this beauty coming to life. Wishes do come true!

Is it going to be standard-fitted destroyer-carrier Venator we all know and love or some other variation?

Also, I know we’re not quite there yet, but is there a chance to see her in Imperial grey?

Oh, and what with you starting your Venator just some month after it was declared to be the sign of the end of days? Should we expect fire and brimstone on weather forecast? =)

I was only joking when I said the Venator was the sign of the end of days but damn I didn’t foresee this.

Expect a heavy rainstorm of frogs.
