Fancy Voidship by MeMyMine Fancy Voidship by MeMyMine
For the same reason I needed the custom plasma pistol design (this one: memymine.deviantart.com/art/Fa…). It would be useful to draw a top view and a scheme of the decks, but that's going to be a lot of work so for now I'll upload just the side view.

There are parts in here that are from the component table in the Rogue Trader RPG rulebook, but don't have any illustrations on what they look like, and Google didn't come up with any results either, so I improvized. It doesn't help that for a huge chunk of the parts, according to the ingame information, nobody really knows what they're doing when they work with them, they just press the buttons like my grandma does with her cell phone.

The base for this ship and its stats is a customized Hazeroth-class pivateer hull. Which in the only existing picture in the rulebook looks like some sort of giant TV remote control and doesn't really resemble the rest of the ships. It's also one of the smallest voidships available in the core rulebook, with really good speed.

This is the sleekest and most classy Warhammer 40'000 Imperial style warship design I've ever encountered. Very well done, on so many levels!

If I could have my own personal starship I would make it look just like this

Love the work and effort you put into this, Yana. Found your piece while looking up artwork for the Hazeroth hull as I prepped to play a rare Rogue Trader game where I'm 'not' the GM for once. Like you, I was kind of sad by the 'TV remote/gold bar' shape, though it actually got me thinking back (way back) into my recess of nerd memory and I was reminded by the Hazey's side profile of a model from Rogue Trader fleet expansion for old Battlefleet Gothic, the 'Xeno's Escort'. 

Turns out, it could have had a much cooler design.

Thank you for the nice comment! I'm glad you liked the picture.

The model you showed is very interesting indeed. It's definitely more sci-fi than the majority of designs in this game, and better looking than the existing Hazeroth picture. I see the very strong resemblance in profile. Suspiciously similar despite one being of xeno manufacture.

This makes me think that it's possible the artist of the illustration used the old model as inspiration and the art director had commissioned the image in which it appears as page filler. My reasoning for this is, first, the only existing picture doesn't even say that the ship is a hazeroth, it just has two ships in the frame and one of them is identifiable as a different model so the viewer assumes it's a hazeroth. Second, it's obvious that the rulebook text author was imagining a ship with standard Imperial dimensions, and the hazeroth's dimensions abeam wouldn't fit the tabletop model. The artist could've even drawn the actual model but the art director didn't know how it looks from a different angle.

We may never know, but it is interesting to think about. Kind of enjoy the 'starfighter' style split hull design on a ship that is near the size of a star destroyer.

Infact, if your up for it, I was looking at commissioning you to make that a reality. Imagine the Meritech clans back in the day taking a Hazeroth hull, and turning it into a 'shrike' raider, more a classification for their highly optimised 'civilian' hull conversions like the crazy Quarian techno-gypsies they are portrayed as. Turning a Hazey into a 2km long, .75km wide, 250m tall 'light' attack ship, with a 125m split right down the middle of the hull from the main body. The two arms mostly housing one elongated and super sized Sunsear laser cannon each directly linked to the plasma drives on the other side of the ship, and a cluster of dorsel sunsear lasers top and bottom of the ship like oversized turbolaser turrets, lighter bay in the split like a Harrower Sith Dreadnaught married with 40k ship aesthetics.

Sound like something you would be up for?

This ship is perhaps my favorite WH40k ship I have seen and I just made an account to say that, I hope to see more of it in the future.

This is crazy, you're drawing crazy stuff (or "fucking insane" as Zlu just said, looking over my shoulder XD) In the awesome way that transcends my understanding of art.

Oh man thanks! This really took a lot of time to draw, but in the same time it was higely satisfying. This is why I haven't started making additional views of it yet - it would take many times this amount of time. Otherwise a deck by deck map would be big enough to host an entire rpg questline.

I got a few comments that were presuming this was a much larger sized class of ship in-universe. I'm sure that people get this sense because of the amount of detailing. But I made most of the detail on the outside to be over 4 meters tall, and the smallest things and decorations at least 2, to be supposedly thick and durable. Most of the ship illustrations are of ships of over 2-3 km length and their detailing generally corresponds to the size of scale models since there is a game that uses them. One could assume that most of the machinery bits simply are absurdly thick because they're made robust to prevent damage. But it is a problem for the windows, since they imply ceilings of over 30 m in height and illustrations of interiors show that it's not simply that one window stretches over several floors like in some modern buildings. So when I set out to draw this ship I decided to not make any ceilings taller than the one in the hall of mirrors in the palace of Versailles, which is around 12m. Because of that I have more floors/decks in the same space and this is why the ship has more details that on other ships this size. 

That's probably more information than you ever wanted to know but yeah I'm glad you like the detailing :)

Wow xD I love the extra info, it shows how much thought went into this. I wish our ceilings were that tall haha. Canada is full of low ceilings. Is the interior also as opulent as in Versailles? Are there chandeliers and stuff?

Holy moly that's literally the coolest thing I've ever seen. I'm honestly in love with the sun-rays on the prow. Seriously evocative of the armor on those jeweled skeletons, so VERY Imperium of Mankind. Gorgeous.

Where are all the Macro-cannons?

Otherwise, very cool.

This type of hull doesn't support macro cannons, it can only be fitted with dorsal and prow weapons.

Well, shard battery are a type of macro-ccanons. What a raider like an Hazeroh can't get are macro broadsides. And cruiser or bigger only batteries like Hecutor plasma macro guns.
Sorry for the RT nickpicking. Really cool ship anyway :).

Honestly haven't played any of the RPG's other than Dark Heresy 2nd edition, so all the ship-based specifics are new to me.
