    Makwiesel reacted to ajdrake in Imperial Hangar Bay   
    Here you see my first attempt of terrainbuilding.
    It is an Imperial Hangar Bay with catwalks, Ties and cargoboxes.
    Still a lot to do (painting, etc.)
    I want the floor with marks and signs for the Ties and boxes. Will probably design a mat.
    What do you think?
    Anny Tipps and ideas.

    Hi All,
    Star Wars Legion table is slowly getting done, I have been playing with my son and we both decided that a Tatooine table would great.
     
    I made the structures using foam, foam board, foam balls and PVC plumbers pipe and once the were made I used watered down spakfilla and applied it to the structures.
    I have sprayed the structures with Rust-O-luem matt black and then with Vallejo's Iraqui Sand and I then gave them a wash with Vallejo's Beige Brown and then lightly dry brushed them with Vallejo's Matt White.
     
    I still need to weather them and also do the doors and add some greeblies to them and then start on the scatter terrain.

    I'm with Snuffy on this one.  I think paper terrain is a GREAT way to start getting your game on and fill out your table with a small investment.  It doesn't age well or stand up to abuse, but you can swap in more sturdy pieces bit by bit and let the paper terrain last while it lasts.  I still use some and I have a table full of 3d printed and scratchbuilt terrain.

    I can't have easily bruised feelings and also expect to make any kind of headway with these ship designs!  Plus, I was in the Army long before stress cards were a thing and I received my fair share of wall to wall counseling!

    The crew that up- armed this particular ship (a stock salamander) did not take that into account.  The cannons do NOT hit the hammerhead, they fire right over the top of it.  It actually helps the gunners line up the shots.  I hope somebody prints one and paints up scorched wings- I think it would look pretty cool.  I will also look at the mount ans see if the guns could be raised without tweaking the rotator too badly.  Thanks for your input!  I'll send you a shot of an alternate mount when I have one spun up so you can see it first!

    You make good points here.  
    I decided to place the cannons on the airlock tube because those tubes already jut out to the side so it is a good place to get clearance from the body.  I did not consider the points you made mainly because in Star Wars they mount guns in all kinds of odd places where there's no way you could power, feed, or control a real modern weapon.
    There is already a top- mounted turret in development that I will share soon.  It replaces the top hatch.  I figured that is for defense and the forward- mounted guns are for striking targets to the fore only.
    As for the power and space constraints- I get it completely.  I was actually kicking around the concept this morning at the airport and I'm going to build a weapon mounting structure like a canard wing/ hull bump- out just fore of the airlock to allow for that- it may take the place of the passenger door, but if the MCB corp is branching into fighting ships, I see that as one possible design evolution!  
    Thanks for your feedback!  I will message you first when I have these so you can see before anyone else!

    Back in the 90's when we were playing WEG, my players named their freighter the "Century Eagle" and I shamed them endlessly. 
    In our Saga Edition game in 2011, I had a more creative group and their ship was the "The Pauper's Bounty."

    Yeah I am looking for someone to test print and paint one up.  I'm a meh painter at best with little time to devote to improving painting while I am trying to build awesome ships.  I am reworking the rear hinge right now so no metal parts are needed then I will send the files to you if you can make one and paint it up nice!

    I am in 1000% agreement- the system and those narrative dice make it for me.  I suppose if we had to we could use that system and just gen up our own stuff for it forever- I'm more worried about future players not getting in because of no exposure or worse- a different system taking over and all new players flocking to it and calling us crotchety for wanting to stick to our "old school" system...

    I saw this and at first I almost panicked- the system is so good and allows for a style of play that I don't find in other RPGs that I am involved with.  A company makes its decisions based on what is best for it and I don't fault Fantasy Flight for their decision.  I actually have a hard time getting others into the game for various reasons and I imagine that is echoed across the marketspace leading to a lower market share than they would want.  
    I stood up my own business venture to start making ships for folks to use in game and have met the same thing- while there is HUGE star wars fandom, I can't seem to get enough interest to generate sales.  I look at my SWRPG shelf of 20-ish books and know that it's daunting for any GM to come into now because you can't keep up with all the books across 3 systems for all the PC options available in every book.  And I don't even have a full collection!
    I'd love to see them come out with a re-working of the material into a GM guide and Player's guide that encompasses all the races and classes into just a few books to make it easy for a player to get in, but as others have said- even with what's out there folks can play on forever.......  but new players won't be attracted to the game when new material dries up and you don't see it in stores anymore...

    Well, for me it's the system. I can't see myself running another system. If SW goes 5e or some other game system, the best I can hope for is sourcebooks from it. FFG's narrative dice system is what I hope lives on.
