Brunhilde by Norsehound Brunhilde by Norsehound
Brunhilde ( ブリュンヒルト )
The Brunhilde was laid down in 486 RC (Reich Calendar) as the prototype to a new class of battleship. While she lacks the traditional forward-facing canons of the standard battleships of the time, her curved hull incorporates a magnetic reflection field which can deflect most particle shots directed at the ship.

The Brunhilde was assigned to Reinhard von Müsel as his flagship when he made it to Admiral at age 20. Because his sister was concubine to the Emperor, many thought that his quick ascension in rank was due to favoritism by the Emperor. However, time and again Reinhard would prove his tactical and strategic brilliance while at the helm of the Brunhilde- matched only by "miracle" Yang Wen-Li of the Free Planets Alliance space fleet.

The Brunhilde would last through the entire run of Legends of the Galactic Heroes- making her first chronological appearance under Reinhard's command during the battle of Legmiza. She would eventually come to serve as supreme flagship of the Goldenbaum, then Lohengramm, dynasties and eventually the "Palace" to Reinhard's leadership.

----------------------------
Standard Imperial Battleship ( 標準戦艦 )
This is the standard Imperial Battleship of the Imperial forces on the side of the Empire in LOGH. It is one of the most prolific vessels, and several ships have specific names and served as flagships for lesser characters. Mittermeyer and Reuantal both had flagships like this with their personal mark before being promoted to fleet admirals and getting thier own ships.

Pictured here is a custom warship in my own colors- the "Cygnus". Were I of rank in the Imperial fleets, this is what I'd have for my fleet (or flotilla) flagship.

Also on escort is an Imperial Destroyer and two Imperial gunships. The black color belongs to the "Black Lancers" squadron of the Imperial side.

I thought I recognised that white ship from somewhere. (A book I got from Japan, couldn't make out anything but it featured the artist who invented this series... just mindblowing taste) At last after all these years I've found the name to it lol! So thank you!! And FANTASTIC JOB displaying it all out like this.

Is there an anime licensed after or soemthing more recent from the same creator?

If you want a better rendition of the Brunhild Kai, check out [link] in my gallery. It's stacked next to its more or less Alliance counterpart, the Hyperion. Both of these ships are used by the heroes of their respective sides. This piece was an attempt at drawing the brunhild with a battleship.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes as known in the west is an animated OVA from the 80s (110+ episode OVA) of a novel series by Dr. Yoshiki Tanaka. There have been several side-stories and spinoffs following the main characters, as well as a pair of movies. The latest of which was the Spiral Labyrinth OVA, released in 2000. I consider it to be the best space opera in existence.

Looks like Naoyuki Kato was the mechanical designer for the animated series.
