I’ve always been fascinated with land based battleships.  The idea of a GIANT tank that is pretty much just a battleship with tracks sounds so cool.  So I was watching starblazers the other day and that got me sketching some ideas and I decided that Rivet Wars needs one!  Why hadn’t I done this before?

So here is a really rough sketch and 3d model.  It’s similar to a Wasp Class Amphibious Assault Ship in that there is a runway so it can handle aircraft as well as a ramp in the stern for deploying troops.  I added some big guns so it also has the firepower of a battleship.  Oh and a giant drill like the sub in Atragon :)  That’s so it can go through mountains and obstacles.  It’s the Rivet version of a wave motion gun :)  I’ll do more design and sketching but I’m digging the feel of the massing and where it’s going.  Let me know what you think?

Will I make a toy of this?  Absolutely.  I’ll probably make a smaller one to start, like 6″ long maybe?  I’d like it to come with a couple tiny planes and vert tanks that you could put on the deck.  Making one to scale with the 55mm vert tanks would be pretty crazy but never say never…
