Showcase: the weird and wacky: kitbashes, scratchbuilds, and mods that don't fit elsewhere

Recommended Posts

don't hate me,

but I made a kitbashed alt for Talonbane Cobra out of a plane I found at the Dollar Tree. (Yeah, mounts on a base and everything)

 

(and in  my head I've been theorizing an x-wing style game centered around that theme entirely ;) )

think I fixed it... 

Edit: I'll post up better pics of the engine intakes, turret and not-source-accurate multibarrel cannon on the nose if folks want to see them, (and when I get time to take them), but didn't want to push my luck with everyone's patience ;)

Mostly because I didn't want to post this in any of the other threads because  it doesn't really fit them.  I usually use it as a Shadow Caster, but it's the RTSS-720, my artist's impression of a Ghtroc 720.

I see decimator bits, falcon cockpit, falcon back top section with weird circle things... how many ships went into this?

Just those two (the cockpiut, the tube leading up to it, the docking struts, and the vents, plus the majority of the underside, are all Falcon - I had two once I bought HotR and hadn't even used one of them...) and I salvaged the rest of the decimator into functionality with LEGO.

The rest is scratchbuilt except for a couple of bits from an old 40k Ork kit.  And some toothpaste tube caps.

Hunter-Killers

This is a work in progress. I have two plans for these.

1. First I plan to use them in a custom HotAC type mission where the players need to disable a series of satellite relays but run the risk of activating Hunter-Killer seeker missiles.

2. I also plan to work up Pilot cards for Hunter-Killer class droid starfighters.

had to look that model up.. neat. gonna put that on my shopping list (i can use it for my battletech games too. :) )
reading the details of the game, that was made from a hard rubber? did that make it hard to work with regarding adding a stand and whatnot?

I have two different models. The first one with the X-Wing miniatures base is the QMX Little Gorram Heroes model ($100). It’s made of a hard resin or something. I didn’t want to damage the model so I made a custom base that fits the mounting hole of the stand that came with it. This model is about 8” long.

The second one is the yahtzee game ($30). It’s made of hard rubber. I plan to mount it on Epic stands. I’ll probably use magnets. I did have to dril small holes for the gun mounts which was easy to do. The rubber accepted the black spray paint well. This model is about 10” long.

I was inspired by @Polda to create a zerg/star wars crossover piece.

Here is my first attempt, and I have to say, I like it a lot.

(Sorry for Google Drive links.  My computer won't allow me to insert anything else.)
