TIE Engines

Recommended Posts

... No not upgrade cards again!

 

I've painted the engines on my TIE's and TIE Bombers as well as my Lambda Shuttle. I'm about to make a start on my Phantom and Defender and can't figure out where the engines actually are? I've google'd both ships and can't see any hint of engine glow on any of the pics! Am I missing something? Do they have different Ion engines to standard TIE's?

 

... Help!

This. But the Defender and Phantom don't have the same 'parts' so I'm not sure what to paint red. Or if they are actually red at all! Ever wish you hadn't started something?  :lol:

 

They do. There are three arranged around the back of the ship.

Twin Ion Engines Engines?

Is that like ATM (Automatic Teller Machine) Machine? Or PIN (Personal Identification Number) Number?

:)

 

:(

 

... But also many, many thanks Hexis. You're a star!  :D

The REAL question is...where did you put the engines from the TIE Bomber?

 

The only time I've seen the backside of a TIE Bomber in FFG's art was...

...and...uhhhh....that don't look right.

it's actually the 2 protruding dots on each cylinder. Will post pics later.

 

And I think this TIEbomber has an engine upgrade

I think I found good examples:

As nice as this was to see.. the minis from FFG don't have that set up on the Defender. I like the idea off the card, but that is gonna be a pain in the tush..

They both got three, Triple Ion Engines. Look for cut scenes from Defender of the empire and rebel assault 2, rebel strike 2. I can't remember th name of the one with the phantom piloted by rookie 1.

JFYI There Interceptors in ROTJ that have a gren glow in their engines.

Easier to point out that the best close up of the Interceptor's backside is as they are being chased around the Neb-B. They clearly have red engine glow in the same position as a regular TIE/ln.

IM-POSSIBLE!!  Pics or it didn't happen!  Haha, overreaction aside, I'm am genuinely curious.  

 

Also, they might have Twin Ion Engines, but the red could simply be exhaust ports or something similar.
