Halo UNSC Taskforce 21 by HandofManos Halo UNSC Taskforce 21 by HandofManos
Final version. Decided to give the ships names and put them in a selection screen showing them to be in a taskforce.

The front ship is the main unit, a Alexander Class cruiser called the Seawold along with two Wizard Class destroyers the Bremen en Hosho.

Nice, seems at home in the Halo universe, you have a knack for this heavy, homeworld game, sort of ship design! The smaller ships look like rifles. :)

Sure thing, admire those who can make a hull design flow like this. Everyone probably thinks it's easy until they sit down and make one as detailed as this!

Interesting designs; I'm guessing that the ships would look the same on the other side (two projections flaring down to either side, so that from the front it would look like an inverted Y).

Yup in these cases they are symmetrical in design and thanks for taking a look. Halo is not an universe I delved in a lot

These designs look like they would translate well into other universes such as BattleSpace or Traveller.

This is just an awesome design.
Something that the UNSC would definetly design in my mind.
I'm a fanfiction writer and was wondering if I could use this design in my story?
I have some ideas where I might use this in my story if you would let me.
Please let me know.

I like the front, I like the back, its the middle part that looks off to me. A little too fragile, small and un-UNSC like. Especially with the Bremen where it looks a little too much like a handle in my eyes. Don't take this the wrong way please, I also love it when people make Halo fan art, and you did a rather good job, just wanted to give some critiques.

The only criticism I can think of would be from a nitpicky EU viewpoint; the cruiser doesn't seem to have the heavy mac gun(s) that would be expected in a UNSC warship,

but excellent work, as always.

in the nose it does have 2 larger cannons :D but perhaps they are too small. I'm not sure about that

Hmm, it'll b pretty cool if these ships were in Halo 4's campaign. Now that'll b awesome. Can't wait for Halo 4 coming in 9 days left. :) But I gotta say as well, the SeaWolf Ship kinda reminds me The Spirit Of Fire off from Halo Wars. Just how the sides look with the cannons as well. :D

Since I never did work on Halo Designs I did take a look at various reference material :) The Spirit of Fire being one of them

Nice, thats cool. But also, whats ure favorite UNSC ship out there so far (including Halo 4) out there anyway? Mines either The Spirit Of Fire, or The Infinity off from Halo 4. Its either 1 of those though. But I like both in certain occasions. :)

:iconhandofmanos:
HandofManos Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
actually never played Halo but if I look at the images you can find online I would have to say the Spirit of Fire

Axonn5 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012
Ah that sucks, well Halo is a really fun and awesome game I may so so. And yea, The Spirit Of Fire is really cool I may say, but The Infinity is awesome as well. But I may think The Spirit Of Fire is way cooler I think though. :D

Can't say how well this fits the UNSC ship designs, as these seem far better than most of the vessels I've seen in Halo, but you just about pegged the NAU vessels from Dark Nova with the Alexander class :D
