"The difference between the old Covenant and the new Reconciled becomes abundantly clear (which is a phrase that cannot be said without doing your best Halo 2 Truth impression) when you cross a creek running through the forest and start to notice the details of their actual encampment.
The former glory the Covenant held in the great war is gone, replaced by a mere fraction of its old power. Their armor is battered and broken, their vehicles scratched, rugged, and patched, the standard Covie crates are dented and losing color, and power conduits lay free, sparking from garbled radio terminals. Even the cruiser itself looks heavily repaired from this far down..."
This is a sketch from the latest Shield and Sword update that has been posted, imagining through art and text what the fifth level of an imaginary Halo 4 might be like. See and read a bunch more about it here:
The third card in the Halo series. I know the cards so far are weak, but I need to make the weak ones first to avoid overpowering the strong ones. Don't worry, cards are coming that will allow you to quickly summon massive numbers of drones and grunts for tribute material and direct damage.
Fourth card in the Halo set. What it lacks in offensive power, it makes up for with decent defense and a kick-ass special. However, its special involves switching it into Attack Position which is absolute suicide if your opponent has anything with moderate attack! However, I will be making cards to flip it back into face down defense position after the Battle Phase to make it a little less vulnerable.
A mainstay destroyer, commonly seen in UNSCDF fleets. Shot taken from the front so the bridge is visible. More information below...
Another design spawned in the war, this vessel is sturdy, and its decentralised bridge makes a more difficult target than on previous ships. Four heavy MACs, a triple thickness of Titanium-A armor and multiple naval-grade cannons make this ship an awfully tough opponent. Massive ion-flux and standard fusion engines give it a head-start against all but the fastest of Covenant vessels.
