    I finished up @ExplosiveTooka's awesome Arrowhead Corvette just in time for central PA's CAPA Cup and the upcoming prime championships. It's a great hammerhead replacement, and it made me shoehorn a Chammerhead corvette into my Ackbar list.
    The model has a lot of great detail, the engine section in particular is really cool. But it was hard to get decent photos of it that actually showed all of that. Here it is on a flotilla stand with Cham's stormtrooper transport and in a comparison shot with some other alternate Mon Cal models.

    This seems to be an improved design of the Assault Frigate Mk 2



    So it is canon now.

    melminiatures reacted to Dameon13 in Are there any expansions that aren’t worth buying?   
    There's some ships I bought simply because buying the entire expansion pack was cheaper than buying the cards I wanted separately (Neb, Raider, etc...). 
    I too hate the look of the MK II Space Potato so I bought some of Mel's Assault Frigates that I use as stand-ins.

    Just a few more weeks... we'll be moving to our new house. My Armada collection will be unpacked alongside with my painting equipment. I'm afraid I'm gonna spend too much here and Mel's....

    The inspiration for this model came to my mind while I was working on the Mc80. I started to work on it two weeks ago and made four variants to fulfil a variety of roles.
    I'm proud to show you what I classified as the Mc35 Heavy Frigate. 

    I know I didn't make any official announcement but I can answer demands for my models since the 25 sept, so don't be shy!

    Clinker 11: “White Noise”
    White.  Avvery Vergescu, a novice pilot from Sullust, witnessed the brutality of the Empire first-hand during the Galactic Civil War in his childhood.  Despite his inexperience as a warrior, he does not want to see the First Order become another oppressive authoritarian galactic power.  A light sleeper, he uses noise-cancelling headphones and a white noise generator when possible, earning him his callsign and a paint job to match.

    Clinker 9: “Sidewinder”
    Sand and Armor Sand.  Pasir Pantai is a Human from Soccoro.  He was a speed-demon as a teen, and often raced swoops semi-professionally, eventually earning enough money to move off-planet.  He dislikes oppressive governments and corporations, so he quickly signed up for the Resistance.  Flying fast ships wasn’t a bad secondary benefit.
     
    Only 3 to go:

    Clinker 1:  “Spaceman”
    Gray and Red.  Commander “Spiff” Kaniff is a Corellian pilot who flew a T-65 X-Wing during the Galactic Civil War as well, and often talks about his days running contraband for the Rebel Alliance while flying with old friends from Mercuria Freight and Shipping Company.  He has the most contact with Zepaku, a Wookiee who owns a freighter called the Decadent Parrot.
     

    Clinker 8: “Stinger”
    Orange and Black.  Oonsood Heg is a Duros who recently came to Clinker Sqaudron after his old unit took heavy casualties from the First Order corvette Insidious Onslaught.  He’d love to run into that ship again and get his revenge.  Like all Duros, he’s a very skilled pilot in almost any ship he flies, and aggressively pushes his T-70 to the edge of its operating envelope.
     

    Clinker 12: “Beachcomber”
    Dark Blue and Sand.  Beale Isoud, a female Mon Cal, is one of the squad’s newest pilots.  Soft spoken and gentile, most of the other pilots can’t believe she wants to be a combatant at all.  On the other hand, they know she will stick with them until the end.
     

    That's no shield ring, that's a space station!!
     

    And that's the exciting conclusion of Clinker Squadron.  What else ya got, @melminiatures?

    I painted up a modified Gladiator flagship for the pirate furball at NOVA Open. I threw in some alt squads for some TIE Advanced (R41 Starchasers and Cloakshape Fighters), and added some thematically painted Z95s and Firesprays. Combined with some of my other alternate ship miniatures from Mel's, I ended up with a decent pirate fleet...

    melminiatures reacted to DangerShine Designs in Which model kits work with Legion   
    Ahoy hoy - I have seen a variety of pictures where people have used different models to great effect and created insanely good looking landscapes, and (particularly in a FB group that I'm in) there are a lot of "which model is that?" questions met with "I don't know, I found it on eBay" or "I don't know, I found it in my kid's room" answers, and so I am trying to compile a list of the different models that work well with Legion. This is almost entirely for my own edification but thought I'd compile it here for the use of others.
    So, if you have used something that works, please post either the name or a link to the model or a picture of the box and I'll keep updating this post. I know that 1/44 is the 'correct' scale but have also seen some 1/48 and 1/35 models that seem to work nicely and am not looking at being a "scaliest" so would love to be able to add as many models as possible to the list below, particularly less common ones, like the correctly scaled Millennium Falcon, AT-AT (where the dickens does that come from?) and the U-Wing.
    Bandai 1/48 scale Snow Speeder

    Bandai 1/48 scale AT-ST

    Revell Snaptite A-Wing (didn't see 1/44 explicitly called out, but from pictures it seems to work just fine!)

    Bandai 1/48 T-65 X-Wing

    Revell 1/53 AT-AT (thanks @ML-0416)

    Bandai 1/52 Snowspeeder (thanks @OMGBRICK)

    Revell 1/106 Lamda (thanks, @FlyingAnchors)
     

    Revell First Order 1/30 TIE Fighter (thanks @Corver)

    Revell 1/65 40th Anniversary TIE Fighter (Thanks @Yodhrin)

     
    So! what else is out that you guys are using?
