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.

The green ribvbon around rthe bow gives it away as a regular fleet battleship.
Was too tired to notice. :sleepy:
However I would really like to see one in Black Lancers markings. :-)

Any plans to model any of these in 3d?

I would... if I had a 3D program and the know-how to use it :)

Check out Silo for modelling - it's a free fully functional download for 30 days. After that, it can be used to open and save, but not edit. There's also Blender, but I've had a hard time with it.

I'm currently using Silo for vehicle modeling, and 3d Studio MAX for texturing and rendering. See here and here for a couple of unfinished examples of what I've done with the app.

Admittedly, the learning curve on 3d apps approaches the vertical if you haven't had classes, but I find modeling spaceships in my spare time to be nice and relaxing. :)

Would be nice if I could do some of these to make my own Homeworld Mod :\

I'll have to look into it sometime. Thanks for the info!

That may be possible - I don't know if homeworld is moddable (never played it, unfortunately!), but Silo and Blender are both great for format conversion, so it may be possible to boil a Silo-created ship into a viable game model.

Homeworld IS moddable, if not, abusable.

(Is that an Ion cannon on a fighter?)...

I've poked arround blender, and yes, the learning curve is vertical, but I mainly use it to guess what button did what effect after a while.

Tough I preferred Wings 3d for HW:C, I don't know wich editor might be usable with HW2.

The mod/abuse ratio sounds a lot like Escape Velocity.

After plonking in Silo for awhile, I was able to actually get a few things done in Blender - but I still find the application to be horribly obtuse. I've tried to use Max, Maya, Lightwave, and Blender - and I stick with Max because it's the only one I've ever been able to make headway in, thanks to having had a few classes on it. I use Max for my comic, though I've taken to using Silo for recreational modeling and doing rapidly a bunch of tasks that are either a horrific pain in the ass or flat out impossible to do in max.

Wings 3d looks like it lives in the same modeler space as Nendo and Silo, though I've never used it - having browsed the page, I'd say its I/O formats are limited compared to Silo. Of course, Silo's a pay app.... but bang for buck, it's ridiculously cheap.

This is very well done. The Brunhilde is by far, my favorite ship on LOGH.
