Yes. It's great. Please share.

Whill and Xain Arke, message received. I have been locating old files (both physical and electronic data), scanning and preparing to put up my first planet. It'll take more time though!

Meanwhile ...

[12.]Heavy Armoured Escort Crawler


(Figures shown for scale purposes)

Modelling notes:
Basically, several differently scaled WW2 model kit-bashed together! I know it makes little sense to have even an armoured plasti-glass cockpit, but I see that as an observation post, and assume no-one would occupy it in a serious combat situation!

Stats:
Craft: Pernic Industries Armoured Escort Crawler

Scale: Speeder
Length: 20 meters
Skill: Ground Vehicle Opn, Heavy Sand Crawler
Crew: 2, plus 2 Gunners (Passengers: 12)

[13.] Vehicle: (Light) REPULSORLIFT WAR SLED



Modelling Notes:
Basically, built from plasticard, with a few ‘bits box’ pieces. The models illustrated have been damaged in long storage (I wonder what was originally attached where the paint is missing?)

Campaign Background:
From Myedrolar (aka Gohlag 6), being the same world the Maze Skimmer (above) is found. These are used in the same Maze warfare environment, able to ride along the channel depths and (with piloting skill) leap across the top of a crevice from side to side to navigate the surface level too.

Stats:
Craft: Rourrh Flaming ClawsWar Sled
Scale: Speeder
Length: 8.5 meters
Skill: Repulsorlift operation: War Sled
Crew: 1
Passengers: 2
Cargo Capacity: 0.5 metric tons (instead of passengers)
Cover: 1/2
Altitude Range: Ground level - 15 meters
Cost: 6,500 (new); 2,500 (used)
Maneuverability: 2D+2
Move: 110; 320Kmh
Body Strength: 1D+2

Weapons: Medium Blaster Cannon
Fire Arc: Front
Skill: Vehicle blasters
Fire Control: 0D
Range: 50 100/250/500

[14.] Speeder (Scout) Disc



Modelling Notes:
Basically some fiddly bits attached to half a tyre from a model kit.

Campaign Background:
These appeared quite often in my campaign. I like the idea of Imperial army soldiers or stormtroopers piloting these simple repulsorcraft whilst standing (although harnessed for safety), almost like riding an animal-mount. Light cavalry! I imagine them zooming along low like Luke’s speeder, with the look of a hovercraft! These are used for scouting, outriding, searching for fugitives, patrolling wide areas, etc.

Stats:
Type: Repulsorlift Scout Disc
Scale: Speeder
Skill: Repulsorlift ops: Speeder Disc
Crew: 1
Passengers: 0
Cargo Capacity: 40 Kg
Cover: ½
Altitude Range: Ground Level - 4m
Cost: 5,850 (new); 2,000 (used)
Maneuverability: 2D+2
Move: 90/280Kmh
Body Strength: 1D+2

Weapons: Laser Cannon
Fire Arc: Front
Crew: 1 (pilot)
Skill: V.Blasters
Fire Control: 2D
Range: 3 50/100/200
Damage: 2D+1

That Heavy Armoured Escort Crawler is all kinds of awesome, I think the glass canopy is what makes it look more like a Star Wars vehicle.

The Repulsorlift War Sleds look like they would fit in zooming around in Rogue One, Solo or the Mandalorian with that hot-rod kind of style.
Definitely going to have to find a place for these in my own game.

I can't tell you how much I love those Speeder Scout Discs Laughing killer theme-park rides. I seriously want one in real life.

Great work again StarPadre Smile

Glad you like them, Xain Arke, and that you told me so!!!

If you're a fan of the war sled, what do you think of this larger version?

[15.] REPULSORLIFT WARRIOR PACK WAR SLED



Modelling Notes:

This is just bits of kits stuck together. Basically, I used to go through my box of bits of plastic model kits, lifting out bigger pieces and thinking “What could this be in my Star War’s Campaign?” Then I would find little pieces to turn it into a craft of some sort. (Just thought … I wonder if I can find the ‘war’ droids I made?! Boy, they were fiddly little things to make in 15mm scale!)

Campaign Background:

Another, larger Myedrolarian war sled, used to carry a whole pack of Rourrh warriors.

Stats:

Craft: FPP21
Type: Repulsorlift War Sled (Land speeder)
Scale: Speeder
Length: 7 metres; [width 8.5 meters]
Skill: Repulsorlift operation: War Sled

Passengers: 5 (standing)

Cover: 1/2
Altitude Range: Ground level - 12 meters
Cost: 6,000 (new); 2,000 (used)

I think I like the smaller ones more, but it's still a great model. I like the central part as it looks like a huge hot-rod engine that makes this thing really move

Awesome work as usual StarPadre
