Latest Customs

EXCELLENT!! Might as well just go ahead and send me one of each of those bad lads. I haveta be at work early today, so I'll dig back in our old emails later.

It was TOUGH to figure out how to base the Carrack. At 350m it falls squarely between the Strike Cruiser and the Lancer. Ultimately, I went with other assets like it's 1000+ crew and it's combat power, and it'll get a Class II base - though it's pretty close to the bottom-end for that scale of ship, particularly with its feeble fighter component.
The Tartan, though, was easy. At 250m it's smaller than the Nebulon-B and so will get a Class III base like the identical-length Lancer.
Both are Imperial. Happily, I have several Commerce Guild Destroyers to pirate for the Carrack - but I'll need to hit eBay yet again to seek a good medium base for the Tartan.

So what's next, Tom? What's on your wish-list? I'M voting (in no particular order):
* Baudo star yacht (it's just pretty)
* paired Howlrunners and/or Z-95 Headunters (granted, a little more fragile)
* Victory II star destroyer
* Marauder corvette (those things are hot - though they look a little Star-Trekky)
* Skipray blastboat

Voting Marauder for sure!

I know what's next, but I am not the person to post that.
Trust me, we will be happy again! (I'm sure I will)
Tom, I would like you to know Im also very happy you add stat cards as well for the particulair ships!

Can you make one as well for the Vindicator?
Do you have a set of pics to make them yourself? I got Rogueknights set, but I got trouble with those. Thx! Can use em for the online gaming then ;)
Ow Tom, the damage pic of the Imperial Escort Carrier doesnt work!
Tom, your mailman was right on and I got them today. They are bee-yoo-tiful! Good packing - all the nice greeblies on the Tartan are intact. TOO BAD you can't really do wider releases for these sweethearts. Looking forward to what's coming next (since TopAce gave a teaser)! Thanks!

The Marauder is NOT a teaser, but yes, there are more comming ;)

Im waiting for those because of the high send costs (Europa - Holland)
No, I didn't expect the Marauder to actually BE the one, just that more are indeed coming.
Shame about the shipping costs; he charges a song for Stateside. Then again, if I want something from, say, Britain it is I who pays the penalty!

TopAce, what issues do you have with the stat card templates?  I'll try to correct them.


Love these ships!  Can't wait till I get 'em
My unofficial SSB Website 4-14-10 Uploaded the Base Pack of stat cards for Desperate Encounters. These cards are for the 60 stock SSB Models, making them compatible with DE. Coming Soon: DE: Reputations. Reputations in battle are earned, not given... An expansion pack containing stat cards for unique fighter squadrons, unique versions of stock SSB ships, and generic versions of unique SSB ships.
Hey Gents, been off the net for a while (for the record I wouldn't recommend fixing a roof during a hurricane ).  I am glad you like the ships.  I am working on the MC-30 and the Gladiator SD.  I think they will make good torpedo frigates for both sides.  They have been giving me a little trouble but I will get them done in a month or so.  At the same time I am trying some class 3 sized ships for the first time: the Gamma-class ATR-6 assault transport and the Alpha-class Xg-1 Star Wing (Imperial Gunboat).  I am not sure how they will come out but they are in production now so I should have some pics in a week or two.  After that I am thinking of a heavy cruiser for the rebels.   I am willing to hear opinions as to which one: dauntless, liberator, or assault frigate mark II.


I think RogueKnight is working on Marauder but I will let him confirm or deny.


Also I noticed that Gosric recently started selling Skiprays on his Shapeways site.  I have not ordered one; might be a little big but it looks cool because the tail section looks like it might be turnable.  Plus there is always the micro machine version which is a nice size for SSB.

Ace, I added Vindicator cards and fixed the imperial escort damge link (i think).  Let me know if you still have problems.   


 


Utar,

Looking forward to your next to ships.

I'm working on two ships, atm... or at least planning them out lol.

The Marauder is one of them.  I have a basic 3d model that I plan to print on shapeways and then add detail once I get it.  I'm not all that great at 3d modelling, so starting the marauder from scratch is out.

I may try to add some detailing tho, since Shapeways has better materials now.

The other ship is the broadside cruiser.  Originally, I was going to convert a chopped down SSB Interdictor, but I may give it a go with a simple 3d modelling program.


And Gosric's Skipray has the ability to turn the tail section.


In order of preference, I vote Assault Frigate II, Liberator, then Dauntless.

So, ROGUEKNIGHT, do you also have an array of customs you will part with? Got a link to a site that shows/lists them? Variety is the spice of life!

Bah, well I'm just a morron in Paintshop. Can't get layers to work ans such.
Tried it in the basic Paint, but can't get it right with the damage over the picture and stuff.

Maybe I should just give up making them and leave it to the pro's...


I got no preference you should go for next Utar, it's all good!
Like to see a Marauder tough Rogue
