Hey guys, I know everyone is hyped up about the wave 2 ships this week but I wanted to share this project. I was a big Star Wars Rebellion PC gamer, and the Corillian Gunship was one of my favorites beside the imperial Lancer. Anyhow, I searched online and found detailed drawings of the hull and plucked measurements from Wookiepedia. This gunship is 120 m long, so in 1:270 it would be 44.4 cm or 17.3". I plan to use it in a mission where my boys will have to fight past the ship to and from an objective. The mission will be three battles and will last multiple days. With that said, There is plenty of work to be done.
According to Wookiepedia, the CG has 8 twin barrel cannons and 6 quads. I want to use pre-made gun barrels because I could not hope to get the detail I want.
I'm thinking that the CG would be worth 200 point in the game + 100 points of rebel fighters v 300 points of imps. I might have to revamp this, as the imps will be attacking a moon base that might have ground defenses.
1st battle: 300 pts of imps must get past the CG.
2nd battle: Remnants of 300 pt imps attack base defended by 100pts of rebel fighters (possibly with meager ground support, depending on 1st battle's results).
3rd battle: After the imps destroy their objective, they must return the their own base. Consequently, the CG is stil in orbit and waiting. The rebel fighters are also chasing after the imperial invaders.
Please feel free to post recomendations or ideas.
Thanks for reading.
