Star Wars Legion - Tatooine Table - Part 11


Slight detour from the Tatooine buildings... 

To help break the routine of carving foam, I decided I needed something a little different to model and paint. Enter the might of the Imperial fighter squadron and the crimson terror that is the Royal Guard Tie Interceptor...


Staying with Tie Interceptors, here's another one... I think he desreves the addition of red stripes, like those synonymous with the feared 181st...


Here's the model next to a Bandai Snow Speeder...


Next up are the Tie Fighters...


I wanted to create flying stands for the ships, something that would lift them up high over the table. In this way they could bring some cinematic spectacle to the battle raging below. Once FFG release the game (and hopefully separately available flight stands), I can always re-base them to use them in-game...


I made the bases out of 6mm mdf and inserted two lengths of dowl. In the end of these are attached the ball end of a posable magnetic joint, the socket end of which was modelled into the underside of each ship...


It's pretty high up here!  :)

Until next time...
