The Empire at large by Balsavor The Empire at large by Balsavor
The Imperial fleet looms over a nearby planet.

Killing time again. I wish I had a better Super star destroyer to work from.

Very effective with the planet as a backdrop. The sinister power of the Empire on display.

Wouldnt mind commanding a Star Destroyer, apperantly you have enough firepower & groundforces to invade a planet (with just 1 SD)And with a cloaking device the strategic possibilities are allmost endless. The Enforcer/ Emperors Fist.

That's all beautiful, but, even regarding the perspective, the SSD is much bigger than that. But who cares, that's phenomenal! :D

There are no really good pics of the Eclipse class star destroyer. All of them are either bad CG, or hand drawn.

funny fact.  the medical frigate luke is in at the end of episode 5 was actually originally a ship designed for the imperials that the rebels got a hold of.

Yes, a lot of the Rebel's stuff was either Clone War left overs, Pirate, commerce converted or stolen Imperial vessels, the whole Rebel fleet was hodge podge

wouldnt mind having one myself. not sure what i would name it. probably the Will-o-Wisp. always did like that word and what it is. btw if you dont know a will-o-wisp is like a ball of spiritual energy or like a spiritual fireball. not very intimidating but the name is cool.

Balsavor Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Nice name. Don't exactly know what i would name one. All I know is I'd have one of the Super Star Destroyers. It would take me years just to explore the whole thing, LOL!!
Reply
:iconshadownickmcnick:
shadownickmcnick Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2009
yeah probably. well that is if you wanted to explore the entire thing. if you just explored the more person friendly parts of the ship such as living quarters and stuff then it would probably take you about six monthes or so. just guessing. anyway i thought of a different name. the invictus (i think thats how its spelled) its latin for unconquerable.

shadownickmcnick Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009
its okay. its hard to name stuff. i know that if my dad had a WWII tank he would name it thumper. as far as star wars ships go though i dont think he ever came up with a name. i know he loves the x-wing but im not sure what type of ship he would have that he could actually name. i know he loves the rebellion so it would either be a rebel star cruiser, frigate, etc or he would have some type of rebel star destroyer. actually the funny thing is that the imp star destroyers are incredible ships but the empire looks away from one very small but important threat. can you guess? star fighters. the star destroyers are incredibly powerful as far as taking out big ships, capturing frigates or cruisers, bombarding a planet, or etc, but they dont have any anti aircraft turrets on them which is why the rebellion always whoops them silly when there are a lot of star fighters and not a lot of cruisers. sorry bout the long message. huge star wars geek. read the books, watch the movies, play the games, etc

S'ok. I thought the Star Destroyers DID have anti aircraft weapons mounted on either side of the main hull. Outside of the middle "layers". I'll have to look again.
