"Everything's gone. Kharak... is burning."

Commemorating the 10th anniversary of the release of this classic game this month, I decided to paint over this 3 year old piece of mine and give it some more polish.

Bit of a waste, I'd capture that thing and turn it against the enemy. Let the Marines on the Mothership kill 'em all. Or just blow open a hatch and let them die from decompression. I'd let the pilots get their revenge on enemy fighters.

I'm excited for the HD Rerelease of HW. Words cannot describe how excellent this piece is. Well done good sir, well done.

This mission was what cemented this series in my mind as one of the most beautiful. What started as just a engine test lead to an odyssey that will always be forever leave an impact in this genre. An entire world, and entire people, lost for a dream. Their ashes the foundation for the journey ahead. Their voices will echo into the void for all eternity. It is the charge of the Hiigaran people to never forget Kharak.

One of the most emotional scenes from a game I've ever played. I like your depiction.

I always kept imagining this kind of thing when I played this mission: how it could have been to be among them when they came home...

...and the ones who mass-murdered their families were still around to be punished.

This is so...touching P.S I Love You . It shows an unseen side of the Homeworld War - that of the pilots' feelings...Amazing artwork and a beautifully-captured rendition of the genocide.

I wish you could make more of these, especially ones about homeworld 2 or cataclysm

Damn, mate, you made me re-live the loss of Kharak once again...:( (Sad)

Anyways, amazing pic. Heart

I just replayed this game (was surprisingly easy to get it to work on my Win7 gaming rig) and it is every bit as awesome now as it was then, outdated graphics aside.

This scene... Oh wow, it's strong. I'm impressed.

Also, just a bit of trivia: In this latest replay of the game, I nailed the Taiidan Emperor's ass with SEVEN Heavy Cruisers, six of which I had stolen from his own fleets. I love Salvage Corvettes! Stealing the enemy's super ships is such a rush!
