This ship was only built because I switched the boat hulls on the Arbiter to white over from brown.  The left over hulls meant I had the ability to build this one.  I think the Covenant was mention in the Arbiter and Harbor posts, but I am not sure there was one dedicated to it!

I can't help but think this ship looks a little too narrow.  I'm assuming this is because you opted to use the smaller hull pieces.  

Is there any particular reason you made the stern castle white and blue?  It doesn't seem to correspond well with all the brown.  You need to carry the white and blue across the hull otherwise it looks like it comes from an entirely different ship.

That's also my idea. You should use some white and blue across the hull.
The stern castle look nice however but the ship looks a bit unfinished.

Very sorry to say that the ships do not "catch me". As much as I liked the Imperial Harbor, I think the building style, colour scheme and use of sails for each ship you created is well, inferior to the quality of the  harbor which is an excellent design. Dust is no object in this matter, I just think the design should be more thought over and the ships rebuilt, perhaps using the CAD program.

Come to think of it... I am not even sure why it is blue!

I was using white and black everywhere, then, all of a sudden, blue... there doesn't seem to be a reason for that, who knows, maybe I just had the tall blue slopes, thought they were a cool design element, but had no where to use them!

The narrowness is due to the hulls only being used because they were left over from the original Arbiter.  I wonder if I have a picture of the old guy somewhere... oh well.  

These ships are all a couple of years old at least now.  Maybe I should retool them all in CAD now that I am older and wiser.  

I must admit, of all the ships I have, the Covenant is the most last minute and certainly my least favorite.  I just made it because I had all the left over hulls.  I don't like the second mast, the stern castle, or the bridge all that much.  But I had enough masts, hulls, and rigging pieces to do it, so I did.  Perhaps it is in need of something a little more drastic.  Stay tuned!

Are you going to give the Covenant a major overhaul Mr ZCerberus?

Stay tuned.  I think I am going to be doing several overhauls over Christmas time.  I have an idea that will be very different.  Hopefully I have learned a thing or two while building the Harbor that will translate well to the new ship(s).  I am expecting the Sienna to replace the Covenant as second in command as well, we'll see how that turns out!

By several are implying that you're also overhauling the Sienna as well?

At least two of the ships... but to be honest, there might actually be a NEW ship and two overhauls.  We'll have to see!

The Siena thread only has a few posts so if you're not going to be doing any further work on that ship I might merge it with another of your ship threads.

But I'll leave it there till you decide.

Where is the link to the brickshelf folder? And why did you choose to build on narrow hull pieces? I think would look better on wide hull pieces....

I only used the narrows because that is all I had.  I took the brown ones off the arbiter because I had enough white ones for it.  The brown hulls I did have went into making a ship.  I did it really quickly without thinking about its design too much, I just had the pieces to make another ship, so I did!

Oh yes, before I forget Mr ZCerberu, I have a question for...

Yes, yes... I believe that guy has a Samuri head on.  It is actually one of my favorites for Captains of ships.

Here is a shot of the head I used.  I rather like it actually!

If it is too small an outside link to a set that contains the head.

Lets try this picture...

That is a very suitable head for an admiral, its almost an update of the actual Admiral head.  Other themes provide so many useful heads for pirate creations.

i heard you were going to make the sienna second in command of your fleet. i dont think you should because the covenant goes along with the arbiter theme a.k.a. the halo theme
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Ha, well the Covenant will still be around, but the Sienna is receiving a major upgrade.  It will not really even be the same ship and I am pretty sure I have not seen a Pirate ship that is the same style as the new Sienna is going to be.  It will be different that the classic ships we've had here.

I didn't say spectacular, just a different style!!  I expect some might not like it.
