The Game by Amras-Arfeiniel The Game by Amras-Arfeiniel
I thought of the First Ones beyond the rim. What are they doing there?

Maybe they are bored and Lorien made a little game for them? ;)

The conversation to this picture would be:
Kosh: "And so it begins..."
Lorien: "Tic Toc!"
Shadow: "Oh please shut up, will you?"

Chessboard:
White:
pawns: Starfurys
rook: Vree
knight: Whitestar
bishop: Narncruiser
queen: Sharlin
king: Babyblon 5
Black:
pawns: shadow fighter
rook: Psi-Corp- Mothership
knight: Shadow scout
bishop: centauri vorchan
queen: Shadow crab
king: Z'ha'dum

Models/Textures:
Amras: Kosh, Shadow alien, Shadow battlecrab, 60% of the Vorchan^^
Kojote: Psi-Corps mothership
Others: They are models I am using for ages now. I can't say for sure which model was made by whom.
But most of them came from here I think: www.ultradrive.com/b5_3d_index…
Nick Risinger: Galaxy picture

Program used: Cinemad4d, Photoshop

Mind-boggling detail. Zoomed all the way in and just see more of it.
One image capturing the entire premise of the first three and a half seasons.
Well done!

This representation is really fitting since this is how the Vorlons and Shadows viewed the younger races by the time the series takes place.

As long as the shadows had been in the show, the Drakh haven't been on the board i think.

Sounds like a jiped game: The Vorlon Homeworld isn't on the board.

I don't think that Vorlon Prime was ever in danger. So there is no point in using it as a King in the game.

Great! But why there isn't any Vorlon battleship here? If we wouldn't know that Vorlons participated the war, we could think that they only used other races for their purposes.

Very nice, but why would the Vorlon side not have a single Vorlon ship? All the 2nd line ships could be Vorlon, and the pawns could be everybody else's navy. :)

Love it! I would buy this if I were able.

I did notice under the Vree ship on the left side of the board, there is a texture missing and you can see right through it to Kosh.

Amras-Arfeiniel Featured By Owner May 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
:D I though the same when I noticed it.
But if you look closely you will see that it is a reflection. It is just so "clear" because it is in the shadow of the vree ship.
And there is absolutely no way that you could be able to look through that geometry. I checked it.^^

First off, I really want this setup.

secondly I would replace the psi-corp motherships with drakh cruisers, or Z'ha'dum with a drakh mothership.  Just one or the other.  

Oh random thought?  should this be on a star trek style 3D chess board?  Space is 3 dimensional after all.

But the Drakh where not "in the game" while the vorlons and shadows where still around. The came later. :)
