Scratchbuilt Star Wars ground combat miniatures

At-At assault

Another crazy project of mine. Some days I think I have time for everything, and I try to do everything... I was preparing ground combat rules for very small scale Star Wars miniatures, but I never got them finished. I've got a bunch of scratchbuilt or modified small miniatures though, and now that I've found Savage Worlds and it's mass combat rules, I can create battles using miniatures as counters! If you're a Savage Worlds fan, you might want to read my post about starship battles.

Scratchbuilt Victory -class Star Destroyer

Victory-class Star Destroyer is another vessel not seen in movies. It is predecessor of Imperial Star Destroyer, is 900 m long and has seen it's best years during the old republic. Although it's too slow to be too effective in ship-to-ship -combat, it still excels in one area: It is still the largest ship able to enter a planet's atmosphere. Combined with it's heavy weaponry, this attribute makes it excellent ground assault craft.

Self-made dragon decoration

While originally designed to be a self-made miniature, arrival of D&D minis retired this fun experiment; The scales are made of glossy glitter pieces, which makes it look really special :)

The dragon is built on a wire frame, using a sort of modelling clay for body and paper meant for those super-light balsa-wood airplanes for wings.

Remember the opening scene of Babylon 5 (not the pilot, the actual series), where Narn fleet attacks a Centauri space station in Ragesh III I was sold the moment I saw that, as it made an immediate connection to my favourite PC game intro - Master of Orion 2.
