Oh man! The Sundered Heart looks AMAZING! And so cleverly put together, to boot. You are a man of talent.
Some people play to win. I play because it's one of the few ways to fly an X-wing here on Earth!
your work is amazing
Appreciate the compliments chaps :)
Right, few questions to answer
Mounting the stand, approached in my usual manner, like a caveman, and simply drilled a big hole where the lower radar array is, I figures ironically by giving it a much better paint job I had reduced it's collectable value to zero so a big hole in the bottom wouldnt make much difference!
The lettering on the base is just printed on paper and secured under the plastic by bluetak, tried it on top at first but tended to curl at the edges and looks nice n shiny underneath, just use your favourite DTP program (I have coreldraw) and have a play! This is a good approach I think as it allows me to play around with the base design for different class of ships the actual model might represent, oh the text is called 'impact'
Regarding both ships, typically havent had the time since I did them to play x wing again, hopefully be rectified over x-wing-mas (see what I did there)
But rules can be as simple or as complicated as you like really, ships this big I think on the 4x3 mat I have will mainly be stationary objectives, maybe both the big guys trading broadsides as the x-wings and ties wizz around in between, or simply get from one side of the board to the other before area 'a' is destroyed on the ship
Even though the destroyer is not to scale I dont see why you cannot beef it up by giving it numerous 'lives' for the turbo lasers representing formidable defenses there are also secondary objectives such as the hangar bay and shield generator etc. I figure keep it simple hence the clear areas of the ships, basically if you can lay your range ruler over the area, you have hit an roll the dice…easy! still means you have to show some skill at piloting especially if the large ships are allows basic turned to screw up your own attempt to line up targets <evil grin> I am not one of these players who insist on realism in most cases so it's more important as far as I am cocerned for a game to be fun and look cool!
When I do FINALLY get some solid games in I will be sure to stick some battle reports on the websites ;)
Sweet! And I really like the scenario idea of the cripple trying to escape, that's very manageable for movement.
Han shot first. I saw him.
Had a little spare time between other stuff so picked up this cheap snap together Republic Star Destroyer. Comes painted but nothing to get excited about so gave it a quick work-over with the old airbrush andit presents a nice little bit of additional eye candy for X-wing. Looks great trading broadsides with the Imp destroyer while all the little fighters are darting around! btw, havent had time to knock up a base for her yet hence the corvette and destroyer bases used (although the base for this will be pretty similar to the Imp Destroyer with maybe a couple of tweaks)
