Star Wars Ships and Vehicles / Custom Titanium Ships
« on: February 12, 2008, 11:38 AM »
Hi,

I recently finished up some resin ships to add to my fleet and thought Id share them with yall. This fleet is my reimagined Eastern Alliance fleet as inspired from the Battlestar Prometheus fan fic  Battlestar Prometheus .

You'll notice the guns on the Alliance ships are bigger and maybe there aren't as many as on a Colonial ship. I heard and liked the theory that this is due to the lower tech of the Alliance and that they make up for it with bigger guns. Their carrier also supports more fighters than a typical battlestar since their fighters are also of lower quality. Once again, it's the "quantity vs. quality" argument.

Here's a couple group shots:



And here's one with this group facing off against a Colonial group:


Here's a few shots of the other ships. The rest of the pictures can be seen here: http://s60.photobucket.com/albums/h20/Jedispyke/Alliance%20ships/

Carrier:



Heavy Dreadnaught



Cruisers (Missle and standard) Note: The 4 guns on top of the standard cruiser are Ravenstar guns I added. The ship had rounded domes there before. The missle pods are some of Novastar's, but wern't originally on there)
 

Fast attack ship (middle) and escort destroyers:


So what do you think?

Star Wars Ships and Vehicles / Strike Mech
« on: February 20, 2007, 09:22 AM »
The AT-FK Strike Mechs of the 5th Mech Battalion often detach squads of Mechs and Exo-suits to support troops on a variety of missions. Once the mech pilots know the mission specifics, they can arm their mechs with the best payload to meet the goals. This Mech, part of Beta Squad, has been loaded for an urban assault against a Separatist stronghold. High Command wants prisoners to question so an ion cannon has been added to the side port of the main gun. Additionally, a twin blaster has been added to the roll bar to aid the pilot in knocking out structures without causing total destruction. Intel shows Hailfire droids and Trade Federation tanks are defending some major points so the pilot has opted to add an MML pod as an offset to the main twin laser cannons. The addition of a portable shield generator was a must as this will be close in fighting with a high potential for ambush.






Exo-suit troops also support the Strike Mechs. To increase survivability, these suits are equiped with an internal shield generator similar to Destroyer Droids. Not strong enough to protect it from a major hit, but plenty strong enough against small arms fire. The primary mission of the exo-troops is to clear out those areas too tight for Mechs but too dangerous to send in troops first.


As you can see in this shot, the Mech can still be dropped by the DragonHawk


The ion cannon & twin blasters can be swapped out for other small weapon packs


And since I've probably already put too many pics up as it is, click here for more pics including close-ups of the shield generator and MML pod.

So what do y'all think?

Thanks!

Revenge of the Sith / Build your own lightsaber

Now that these are showing up in the stores and some people are getting them, I've got a question: How are they sized? It looks like some parts are about 'normal' size, but most of them are oversized like the electronic sabers.

I was really wanting this but now that I've seen it, I don't know.
