V3LO's old supercarrier model makes a guest appearance in Halo: Escalation Issue #6!

Posted by on

Halo: Escalation Issue #6 came out today. Although they changed it up a bit, this ship was in one of the panels:


This ship has appeared in canon before, and it closely resembles this old model V3LO did a long time ago (2008):

Note that the Marathon-class Heavy Cruiser is still located in the aft section of the ship in the comic, except that it looks to be fully implemented into the ship's design. They've taken artistic liberties and the aft side armor looks like a blend of SOTP's supercarrier, which was also partially influenced by V3LO.

We're very proud to have contributed to Halo canon in some way, wether or not we've been credited. After all, Homefront is made non-profit and follows Microsoft's EULA so everything we've done for Halo belongs to Microsoft and 343i and is free for them to use.

You're not sorry at all.
And that's the way it should be.

If I told you what's "up" this conversation would become PG-13

Lol, Halo? Canon? Theyve messed that up long ago. Cool in any case that they seemed to be interested in using that design. Less cool to (again) use it without thanking you with any kind of 'credit'.

While I agree the picture above is not, the one I linked that you replied to is.

Yeah, the one in Boot Camp is the same as the one in this news update, but the one in Escalation 6 is from the link I posted...

Yeah, They're pretty shameless about filching designs from the fans, though I'm not sure it really counts as filching.

Well Microsoft technically owns the idea through the EULA.

I would still be kinda sour, personally, but I guess that's the risk you take working under an umbrella contract for someone else's IP.

Oh wow, you're actually right. Shame that whoever modelled that decided to copy my original supercarrier's engine section.

Wait, Grave Heart is YOUR SketchUp account?
I've been shamelessly drooling over those models for ages...

Oh, you're saying that Grave Heart's model is based on yours...oh well, at least both your ship and his have been featured in canon works, congratulations to both of you!
