  1. Maybe these two generals could work together..? Some nice synergies for Hera’s red moves. Leia Organa (79) Hate (9) Maul (12) Ship total: 100 Half Points: 50 Threshold: 7 Hera Syndulla (VCX-100) (72) Ion Cannon Turret (5) Nien Nunb (5) Ezra Bridger (14) Ship total: 96 Half Points: 48 Threshold: 7 Total: 196 View in Yet Another Squad Builder 2.0: https://raithos.github.io/?f=Rebel Alliance&d=v8ZsZ200Z393X204WWWW48WWWY61XWWW138W52WWW81W&sn=Unnamed Squadron&obs=
  2. That is a splendid looking Kihraxz!! 😮 (I may have to steal some pattern ideas from it to improve mine.) Enjoying also all of these other pretty ships as well, keep ’em coming. 👍
  3. ”Pretty hard to spot...” It took ”only” approx. 7 mins until I got it. 🤯
  4. Okay, 'nuf ranting. Here's my Millenium Falcon repainted to match (some version) of original references found in interwebs (http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=55219). I'm figuring out the paint scheme for the Ghost docking port. I want the pattern to match both of the Phantoms. I improvised this red-stripey-pattern (it's still quite messy, going to clean it up):
  5. I just snap of/pry the peg off shisp with pliers - it usually comes off very cleanly. Then glue a disk or a ring magnet (if you want the ship to tilt). No need for drilling the ship, the underside ain’t that visible. For the C-ROC you could use anykind of a magnet or even a piece of any magnetic metal. You can cover the magnet with thin plasticard/polystyrene sheet to make it invisible. I recommend neodymium magnets. Just remember to double-check polarities before glueing - I always goof up that... 😅
  6. Great project! 👍 I’m guessing you are commited to use pegs for attachments and a no for magnets..? (You could do the attachments without any visible holes and the fit is always secure.)
  7. I did see that Infiltrator (and as all of his work) it is super clean (I could not do achieve that) and sharp lookin’ ship! Concerning the EU-material I guess FFG could have chosen something else. I would’ve looked at the ships in the 90s TIE fighter and X-wing PC games for example. Overall I’m glad that SW universe is getting new material all the time now (so I guess thanks to Disney). ...but at the same time there’s just loads of missed opportunities to invent cool new stuff. I mean look at the EP VII-IX (and Resistance). They spent millions of dollars and practically did come up with zero actually cool looking ships. (I give ok grades to Quadjumper, Upsilon and ResBomber). Some updated X-wings and A-wing (with silly rear firing lasers), same Bs&Ys, same TIE designs, copied SDs and Rebel frigates. And why the f**k do they use the exact same Tantive IV? Wasn’t it destroyed after New Hope? And lastly - Resistance transport pod. A tiny blob that actually should be unarmed suddenly has same firepower than a TIE fighter. Should be just an 0 ATT escape pod type of thing that deploys after the transport is destroyed saving the crew (+maybe a cannon slot)..? 🤔 So maybe I ma a purist too! 😄 ...and overall I give HUGE props to FFG for making this game and they do make excellent work all the time. 👍 A+
  8. Much appreciated! 👍 I do understand your dismay of Ks. I didn’t like them either one bit for a very long time - too much going on: all the bombs/missiles hanging around, silly double cockpit, ugly turrets. I did though like to play Miranda on 1.0 😬 and I no longer despise these... Repaint also helps a lot. Speaking of un-SW-design, there’s a far worse one! The Auzituck Gunship! Oh, that loathsome, bloaty, fat and childish looking piece of lazy design... 😫😩
  9. Scurrgs are my favorites and as mentioned above Sol is a great mate for Nym. I’ve done a few games with Boba as a crew for Nym, example: Captain Nym (48) Ion Cannon Turret (5) Boba Fett (4) Seismic Charges (3) Proton Bombs (5) Ship total: 65 Half Points: 33 Threshold: 5 Talonbane Cobra (50) Ship total: 50 Half Points: 25 Threshold: 3 Old Teroch (56) Ship total: 56 Half Points: 28 Threshold: 2 Cartel Spacer (25) Tractor Beam (3) Ship total: 28 Half Points: 14 Threshold: 2 Total: 199 Deploy Nym backwards in the middle and drop a Seismic to cover 2-3 obstacles to goof up opponents opening rounds. You have 3 x I5 with a decent firepower and some nice control pieces. Also Nym is quite a lite-version here so it’s not an end of the world if (=when) he goes down. A tractor-Scyk as a filler but you could go for a budget version (e.g. MG TIE) also and maybe add crack shot, predator and contrabands on Talonbane and Teroch.
  10. Ok, the old paint is gone. I used an electric toothbrush with a mix of denatured alcohol and water to scrub rest of it off... The underlying factory paint wasn’t affected at all. 🤔 I’ve never done any scratchbuilds/proper modeling so the next step (the docking port) was a jolly learning experience for me! 😎 Some polystyrene, glue and greenstuff. It’s a nice fit! 👍 Not a modeling masterpiece like a lot of amazing builds on this forum but I’m completely satisfied. ... and getting an itch to actually play with these ships... 😄
  11. Sheathipedes (Separatists) make appearances on Clone Wars and one is seen in Resistance also. edit: And on the Prequel Trilogy also.
  12. I’ve painted mine with Tamiya’s clear Orange and Blue paints - making them look like those FFG’s colored pegs. But one of the coolest bases I’ve seen live are these, take a look at the bases: I’m guessing that it’s all airbrush (with black/blue/white), but maybe @Niinivaara can share his secrets..? 🤔
  13. Ok, I started over with the VCX posted above. I wanted to have the docking option for both of the Phantoms. I carved out some plastic (I used a Dremel multi-tool, a modeling knife and a file) and glued magnets for a nice attachment. The next step is to get rid of that old paint. A bath in windscreen wash (denatured alcohol) should do it without damaging plastic. The result after soaking these for 30 mins. 👍
  14. Indeed, but the Separatists are the only faction that I don’t (currently) have... 🤔
  15. Superb paintjob again! 👍 Btw. CIS is the only faction that I don't have, but IF I did I would probably do a conversion of a Infiltrator simply by turning it upside down and replacing the peg position with somekind of turret/gun. I think that this ship looks particularly cool beneath. 🤔
