Bigger than a….BIG THING!

I know, cheesy wordology there, but couldn’t resist it. When I started to create this model I never extected it to grow to this size. At 22cm it is the biggest Firestorm Armada model I have made to date, and probably one of the most detailed. Manufacturing a thousand plus of these is going to be fun for the mould room boys, but hey, they love it.

A shot along the length of the ship - not even started detailing the front end yet

The race that this brute belongs to are the Jowrion and this is a Perditor [Destroyer] Class Leviathan. The pictures you see here are work in progress, I’ve got a lot of detail to finish. More updates to follow as I finish the model off.

We wanted lots of engine detail

A bit about the race: The Jowrion are a splinter faction of humans inhabiting a series of planets along the north-eastern edge of Fathoms Reach. Although affecting an apolitical facade, the Jowrion are actually deeply involved behind the scenes with several major players in the region. Exercising an alarming talent for intrigue, the Jowrion have actually managed to place at least one of their massive Perditor [Destroyer] Class Leviathans within Directorate and Sorylian Battle Groups, and several with the Terrans and the Dindrenzi.

Pipes, pipes and more pipes - and there is still more detail to come

It is currently unclear why the Jowrion have tried so hard to be involved on both sides of the conflict, but their self-sufficient warships have turned the tides in several battles. It is interesting to note that through either design or good fortune no two Jowrion ships have ever had to meet each other in the field.

At the moment it takes four flight pegs to secure the model to its custom flight stand
