in first strike, it was orbiting reach as a forward base for an attempted mass invasion of earth. chief and friends destroyed the station and most of the surrounding fleet. the covie ships in halo 2 attacking earth in the beginning were the only ships that survived out of hundreds

That and the Cradle station, and then little things like refinery/trade ships, starbase constructor, etc. They're in progress of course though, Canada just put up shots of the new construction frigate by Zero.

Gotta say that this is pretty well executed even if it is an early model, the flow between the ring and the inner section is very well done. Only comment would be it needs some irregularity on the ring and bulbous sections, crests and small visual flairs to help establish the sense of scale.

Description

This is the very WIP model for the Covenant Starbase. This is not the Unyielding Heirophant, but a smaller cousin. UH would break the scale of the game given her immense size. Model still needs lots of touch up, but this is the general shape of her.
