Harrington Part Duex – Duex


So – I have started reading, from the beginning, all my Honor Harrington books. I was able to get them all on my iPad so I figured I had to read them. It got me all worked up to go back and start finishing the work I had started on the Harrington ships I have in my queue. Of course I decided that my previous work needed updating / modifications.

Even though these ships have only really been done in any detail for the board game, I wanted to try and get a real design fell to them. I moved away from common sized ports for the energy weapons and scaled them to an appropriate size to house the mounts. Same with the missiles. I decided to add the weapons tracking sensors in-board with each mount. Have to work that out a little better but figured they are ‘safer’ housed inside when not in use. Pretty much patterned after US Navy Phalanx mounts.

I also decided to do two at once as there are some similar elements and these are both going to be light cruisers. I am doing an Apollo class and a Courageous class (Apollo is the larger of the two).

The odd rectangles are placeholders for small craft attached to the ship.
