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!

Campaign Background
This vehicle often acts as an escort for desert convoys. For example, it might be found escorting the Large Utility Crawler (No. 4 above).

Stats:
Craft: Pernic Industries Armoured Escort Crawler
Type: Heavy Sand Crawler
Scale: Speeder
Length: 20 meters
Skill: Ground Vehicle Opn, Heavy Sand Crawler
Crew: 2, plus 2 Gunners (Passengers: 12)
Cargo Capacity: 3 tons
Cover: Full
Maneuverability: 0D
Move: 30; 85 Kmh
Body Strength: 5D

Weapons: 2 Heavy Laser Cannons (in side turrets)
Fire Arc: Turreted for front and rear arcs
Crew: 1
Fire Control: 1D+1
Range: 50 400/1/2Km
Damage: 5D+1

[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
Damage: 3D+2

[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

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

[16.] Repulsorskeet



Modelling Notes:
It is kinda obvious that I got lazy or perhaps I just needed something new for a game that was happening soon, because yes, they're helicopters, but with weird landing rings, added wings and no blades! Yet ... I liked them. I think I had so much of an eager imagination I just stopped seeing the copter. I originally called them repuslorcopters, but that was just rubbing it in! I think I borrowed them from my 'post-apocalypse' home-brew setting, filled with WW2 vehicles turned into Mad Max type machines!

Background Notes:
Low tech speeders, used in escort, scout or medical roles.

Stats:
Craft: F Tar [Streamer] ‘Repulsorskeet’
Type: Airspeeder
Scale: Speeder
Length: 18 meters
Skill: Repulsorlift Ops: Airspeeder
Crew: 1:1 (can combine)
Passengers: 2
Cargo Capacity: 30Kg
Cover: Full
Altitude Range: Ground level - 500 meters
Cost: 14,000 (new); 8,000 (used)
Maneuverability: 3D
Move: 250; 700Kmh
Body Strength: 2D

Weapons: Light Laser Cannon
Fire Arc: Front
Skill: Vehicle Blasters
Fire Control: 1D
Range: 3 70/150/300
Damage: 3D+2

(Yeah, the last one was rubbish, I know! Hopefully this is a bit more Star Wars looking?)

[17.] Surface Mining Utility Craft



Modelling Notes:
This is made from the rear-part of a wheeled sci-fi truck model and a sci-fi ‘fighting robot’ arm. A pretty simple job!

Campaign Notes:
This vehicle is used for wilderness surface mining, usually for valuable gemstones. It’s robotic limb houses a very close-range sonic blaster that shatters rocks, allowing the toughened durasteel claws then to drag out the debris. The blast can be focused on a spot between 1 and 10m from the muzzle, but not closer or further away. Usually an accompanying team of droids then search through the rubble for the gems, although often labouring sentients are utilised for this role. The defensive weapon turret is more often than not present, due to the precious nature of the cargo this vehicle tends to carry after its mining operations.

Stats:
Craft: Ubbrikian Mining Carrier: Model 22
Type: Utility Vehicle
Scale: Speeder
Length: 14m
Skill: Repulsorlift Ops - Mining Carrier
Crew: 2
Passengers: 4-10 (dependent on fittings)
Cargo Capacity: 8 metric tons (plus can tow unmanned repulsor-sled)
Cover: Full
Altitude Range: Ground level - 20 meters
Cost: 24,000 (new); 10,000 (used)
Maneuverability: +1
Move: 80/220 Kmh
Body Strength: 4D

Mining Blaster:
(Located in the grappling arm)
Sonic Pulse Blaster
Crew: 1
Skill: Vehicle Blasters
Fire Control: 0
Range: 1-3/5/10 meters
Damage: 8D (sonic fragmentation)

Defensive weapons:
(optional) Double Laser Cannon
Fire Arc: Turret
Crew: 1
Skill: Vehicle Blasters
Fire Control: +2
Range: 30-300/780/2 Km
Damage: 4D+1

I like the helicopter thingies, they do look a little Avatar, but I think they'd still fit in the star wars universe. We had wookiee insect-winged vehicles after all.

The Surface Mining Utility Craft looks like a little space camper van. awesome Smile

I really like the forearm section of that robot arm too, looks heavy duty

[18.]Mobile Ground Command Base (+ sensor platform) [IMPERIAL]



Modelling Notes:
Almost wholly like the WW2 model was supposed to be, but with a big sensor array added (hopefully Star Wars-like) to the rear. Another pretty simple job!

Campaign Notes:
The Imperial army use these as mobile HQ’s in armoured military operations. They don’t need to be fast or manoeuvrable, as they tend to operate behind the front line, but they do need to be tough!

Craft: Kuat Drive Yards' T4 MCB
Type: Mobile Command Base
Scale: Speeder
Length: 15 meters
Skill: Ground vehicle operation: T4 MCB
Crew: 2; gunners: 1

Cargo Capacity: 0.7 metric tons
Cover: Full
Cost: Not available for sale
Maneuverability: 0D
Move: 38;110Kmh
Body Strength: 6D+1

[19.] AT GT (All Terrain Gun Transport) IMPERIAL



Modelling Notes:
It is exactly what it looks like, the legs of a mech with two tank turrets mounted on top.

Skill: Walker ops: AT GT

[20.] COMBAT AIR SPEEDER
Strike Team Transport/Scout Vehicle



Modelling Notes:
Basically, a cheap, plastic toy, painted. It looked like it would do as a Star Wars vehicle, so I bought several from the £1 shop!

The Imperial Mobile Ground Command Base reminds me quite a lot of those pencil stetch concept art of Star Wars tanks. So it definitely looks Star Wars to me

The AT GT is probably my favourite model so far, an awesome mix of Battle Tech and the setting art in the back of the original 40K Rogue Trader book. Awesome Very Happy

The Combat Air Speeder reminds me so much of a Zoid head that I can't not like it Smile it also gives me vibes of those Star Trek Reman fighters from the Nemesis film.

Great work as normal StarPadre
