Generic Landship Hulls

Post by Captain Darling » Tue Feb 23, 2016 1:35 pm

I have completed three landships for my VSF gaming so far and because I am enjoying making them so much already have plans for more (which is not really a problem as you can never have enough Landships!). BUT how many of these will I ever get on a tabletop at once I thought so I began to ponder and thought if I make a generic hull which I can slot a superstructure into then I can make as many of those as I want and just chop and change them on the generic hull as I require them for games!

I created two generic hulls.

So once a superstructure is made it's a simple matter of attaching it to the top of the hull by sliding it into place. See in the example below with a bit of stryene substituting for a superstructure it fits in the top of the hull and the two arrows show the way it will get slid into place...

Image

After sliding the superstructure forward it is 'locked' into place, you'll see in the picture below in our example the left arrowhead is now hidden...

Well I'm off to build some superstructures!

Thanks!

Waiting for some cooler weather and I'll cast up some big guns so I can start the superstructures...curse the summer heat!
