As promised, Sean Murphy has rendered a new Wing Commander wallpaper -- and it's a beauty! Pictures speak better than words, so check it out below. Sean has kindly made the picture available in several different resolutions.
Not sure what you're looking at? The Nephilim Stingray-class Interceptor/Cap Ship Interdictor is one of Wing Commander Prophecy's signature fighters, representing one of the Vision Engine's unique abilities: ships that can connect and separate during combat. Stingray are unique in that they carry no missiles - an individual Stingray mounts two Light Plasma Guns... and when three are together they can lock via magnetic/capillary cohesion to form their weapons into a single ship with a devestating Heavy Plasma Gun. In this way, Stingray are a threat to both individual fighters and to large capital ships. Individual Stingrays are 24 meters long and mass in at 18 tonnes.
Here's Sean on the image:
I'm dropping them in right now. The wallpaper is a render of three Stingrays about to combine...I don't know if there's ever been a decent image of the Stingray available, at least none that I've seen! I did four different size versions so folks could download their preferred resolution.And now, the scene you've all been waiting for!
Let me know what you think!
PS - Thank you guys one more time for the help with the fundraising; thanks to you guys our family raised over two thousand dollars for MS research and assistance. That's quite a feat, and certainly something for you - and the whole WC crowd - to be proud of!
