Returning to Inq after a few *cough* years away
« on: March 23, 2020, 04:14:16 PM »
As I was looking at playing  a game of Inq54 at the Yaktribe TRIBEmeet it has given me the bug again so I have returned to a project I put on hold about 10 years ago.

Meet my 54mm Shuttle Craft WIP









My old school terrain piece.

Is that a clone troopers transport? It's immense! Great work. Looks terrific.

Well, certainly in keeping with the spirit of things, given that the original article for Inquisitor rules had an Arbites Heavy Patrol tank that was obviously a Battle Droid tank.

I hope you're inspired to keep the project going even though the government's lockdown has got in the way. (I do need to get back to my own projects - I did choose to take a break from modelling work when the Salute cancellation came through, as I'd been working somewhat flat out on things for that, but I'll try not to make that too long a break).

Well my Necromunda Modelling has been put on the back burner, for now at least.

Welcome back!

That shuttle will look amazing once you grim darken it up!

Just to ask what scale are you using? Some shots give me the impression of 28mm, others 52mm.

It is 54mm scale, it is just a HUGE model. That is why I never got rid of it, though the wings do detach for better storage and transportation.
