Apex Studios has been busy over the last couple months, with models, textures, code, and even music appearing left, right, and center. We're letting you, our exceptionally patient community, in on a few of these things today.

All we need now, is a captain

Last time, we showed you a WIP model of our new UNSC Halcyon Cruiser, today, we bring to you a fully textured version:

Apex Studios Update 16/09/2012

 
This ship is an essential late game piece, although not as heavily armed as the larger Marathon Cruiser, or as well supported as the Iliad Carrier, it can take a tremendous amount of punishment.

A slightly more subtle approach

Yet again our sister mod Sins of the Prophets has provided us with a generous helping of awesomeness, this time in the form of a new UNSC Prowler:

Apex Studios Update 16/09/2012

 
And the Covenant Picket Ship:

Apex Studios Update 16/09/2012

(Credit to V3LO and Krazy from Homefront for this one: Moddb.com)
Both of these ships are excellent for scouting out the map at the start of the game, you don't want to be caught out by and surprise attacks.

Music to my ears

Our resident composer DGaius has been hard at work aswell, we've got two tracks to show you today, one is a reworking of something you've heard before, Unknown Territory:


The other is going to be the galactic conquest background track, I give you Slipstream:

You can read more about Gaius, his music, and the mod in general in the Forum Exclusive section of our forums: Halocaw.net

Apex, out

That's it for now, I shall leave you with this, it's dangerous out there:

Most likely a patrol ship used for scouting.

Actually the Spook is for scouting purposes. The Picket is (indeed)somewhere between a patrol ship and corellian corvette/tartan patrol cruiser. We didn't have a ship in the Covenant armada to fill up this role, which explains the existence of this ship.

We have a Halcyon demo (with the OLD Halcyon model). You can find it in the download section (or click this link: Moddb.com).
Our first release is scheduled on 20.12.2012 (D/M/Y).
There is not date for a full release though. I think I rumored somewhere it'll take another few years.

You guys should ask the guy who is working on halo "campaign commander" if he'd be willing to merge mods, If its at all possible, he has the land down pretty well and your making alot of progress with the space units.

Quoted from our FaQ: "No. We already talked with each other, and we think that it'd be better if we stay seperate mods. We both have our own goals and priorities,and they don't go well together. Nothing for UnGood, but we don't think that the situation would improve when we merge."

Love the look of the Prowler very sleek and stealthy looking.

However I hope that the picket ship is still WIP, It just seems too... Purple. I am aware that purple is the signature color of the covenant but their ships always seem to be more silver than purple, and right now it looks like a giant Ghost. Just my opinion though.
