A symbolic spacecraft for the Horde

If you are unfamiliar with the source material for this LEGO model, the Horde is a faction in the Warcraft franchise, but usually has little to do with spaceships. The builder, Evgeny Susekov, does not specify whether he took inspiration from the game or just from the faction’s symbol. The builder uses every detail of the symbol’s design to add something interesting to the spacecraft; from the curves and side appendages, to the unique diamond element in the center, which is a cockpit connected by what appear to be energy beams.

The build is an interesting use of fantasy inspiration in a sci-fi theme. However, besides the shape there is not much more to remind us of the games, and it might have been good to include at least an Orcish pilot or many, many spikes.
