I am planning out a project for some
Drukhari terrain. I want to bring a slave vessel to the gaming table, a ship that can provide cover and a cool centerpiece for the board when I bring my army out to fight my friends.
As Drukhari generally are raiders and fight on enemy turf, Drukhari themed terrain can be difficult to fit into a battle driven by narrative unless taking place in the Webway.
So I want to create a slave transport or a space craft that I can put on the tabletop. After doing a lot of size comparison in Battlefleet Gothic Armada II between the Razorwing Jet Fighters and different ships, I've come to the realization, that even the smallest and most easily built escort ships are the length of a dining table.
That means I'm looking for a mid point between that size, and the size of a Razorwing.
As I could find no pictures or descriptions of any vehicles of this kind myself, I've decided to ask you all for your thoughts.
I am currently thinking of going for a slave barge of some sort, that would be inspired by the Raider and Ravager models. They would be as wide as a Voidraven Bomber and a fair bit longer. I could make it quite a bit taller than other ships available to us, and make griddles in the floor with hands reaching up through the holes. As illustrated in the attached drawing. I may also take inspiration from Jabba the Hutt's slave barge as well.
Otherwise I am definitely looking to hear your thoughts on this and would love to be inspired by any lore or images you can direct me towards.
