The Auriga by Stevolteon The Auriga by Stevolteon
The Auriga is the flagship of Valuan 2nd Admiral Gregorio, and makes it obvious how he earned the nickname "Iron Wall". The formidable ram isn't just for show either, the hull has been specially reinforced to allow it to plough into ships with devastating force.

This build has been a long time coming! After the Delphinus I had always wanted to do the Valuan flagships. Not only is the Auriga my favourite but during the encounter at Esparanza there is a clear overhead shot of it and the Delphinus side by side, making scaling a doddle. Furthermore it means I have a template for the Flagship hull which most of the other flagships share so others should hopefully follow shortly.

There's a little more to be done; the saw-like armour plates on the bow are only on one side, there's some detailing on the engines, and a stand that's a little less... orange, but with it so close to completion I got a little impatient!

It's certainly on the list, but with the exception of the Lynx it's the flagship that diverges the most from the basic hull shape. So it will happen, but don't hold your breath!

Yeah, that front piece could be pretty tricky I suppose.

Looks rad! I'm always a sucker for a ship with a good ram

I admire your patience! The things you do with legos are really impressive. I'm sure Gregorio would love to have it on his desk :D

Thanks, it was quite a long time in the making - if anything I was glad to have a deadline to spur me into action!
