SCUM HUGE Ship Model Idea...

48 posts in this topic

JBRS ...

 

You are one seriously sick puppy !!!   :P

 

However, you did just win me money.  I had a bet going with a couple of others as to how long it would take to get a separate thread for S&V, debating what HUGE ships we would get.

 

WINNER !!!  :D

 

Where is my $%? I want at least 5 Bucks!

 

I already started to work on one of these, but I would like to know what you all see, design wise...

Nah man, not a tank. Look at the red body and think of it as a ship. The tank treads are not going to be on the model I am doing, however the wheels are going to be the nice strong engines of the ship. This model will be somewhere between a Transport and a Tantive.

What existing SCUM ships does the body of the HISS Tank look like it could fit in with, from a (comparable) design perspective.  I might be to out there on this one, but I wonder what you guys will come up with...

Yeah, looks like the Action VI medium transport, the Wild Karrde is a custom Action VI. Could do the upgrade of the Action VI, the Interceptor frigate.

I want to see an original design out of this.

Tell me more

 

Pop off the guns, relocate them perhaps, remove the treads, file down curves for sharper lines if possible, smooth out the filing marks, add lights, that little black section? gold/yellow LEDs, make that the bridge. Pop a couple of large cylindrical items on the bottom, side by side or over-under just like the Escort Carrier (Rogue Squadron version), and about six smaller ones as auxilliary thrusters, maybe four.

Strap one of the guns to the bottom and add that as a main cannon/turbolaser meant to contend with Frigates, and add falcon-sized turrets to the sides after carving out divots for them, and a few to the front.

Then you've got a badass Imperial patrol cruiser that is reminiscent to the Tartan Cruiser, Escort Carrier, and with a little bit of the original Escort Carrier, but next to none of the size.

I call the concept, "Ranger" or, "Watchman". 

EDIT OH F**K ME. I forgot this was a scum topic! Whups.

I think the Hounds Tooth or the Wild Kaarde would fit best with your tank shape and color.

 

That's my boy!

:lol:

 

I have one more in mind that is so cool and that we all know... ain't gonna say either.

I think you might find some ideas you might like HERE.

 

YUP, I already have your topic saved in my SCUM Links Folder!

:D

 

I think you have an awesome idea that should turn out really well.

 

THANKS!!!

^_^

 

Joe Boss Red Seven: Whatever you do I know it's gonna be awesome. After all, just thinking that a GI Joe toy could be made into a Star Wars ship is bad ass enough. ;)

 

Love back to you Brother, even on Sunday.

:)

 

Now that I am all about miniatures games again, because of FFG, I got to looking at one of my wonderful COBRA Tanks and it just came to me. "Say that looks like it could work great with a______..."

 

Keep it tight.

Right... that too, but not with the HISS models.

The tread-wheels are going to be used for a number of engines however including a Guardian, because they look good and are the right size.

:)

 

Right now I am all about me some SCUM!!!

Going to be a LOT of pissed off people if non-Rebel scum get a huge ship before the Imperials.

 

Yeah there would be. FFG needs to just release that sexy little Gozanti already!
