WARNING - SCYTHE SHALT TALK SHIT ABOUT TONKS FOR A BIT

Colette wrote:Of course, this is just what I do. The best hovertanks just take the whole modern tank design and throw it out the window, examples including Scythe's Orpheus SHDT, blackdog's triangle-shaped SHDT, and my Space Näzi flying saucer M-B-T. Fredde's and the Luchardsko SHDTs combine the above two approaches- they look like a modern tank somewhat in shape but still experiment with some different methods.


For Kalvinators sake -

Basically, I fell for the pitfall of having a box with engines underneath and went through about 4 re-designs, both IRL and LDD before settling on this design which I am most happy with - incrementing the design with technic build techniques, a longer hull and more internal support while expanding on its in game roll - which is basically to be a high tech teir glass cannon.

It flies the fuck about as fast as most other armies flyers/fighters, it carries 20 troops to drop absolutely fucking anywhere and shit on anyones chips as needed, and its main weapons are designed to absolutely and utterly reaptrain the hell out of other SDT's.

Yes it has shields in the fluff, but in the crunch, they wouldn't be anywhere near as tough as I sell them off to be in my army thread - as I said, it's a glass cannon split between the roles of -

- Fast as fuck speed
- Godkillingfirepower
- Troop capacity

Which means most of its time in game will be spent as a glorified sniper on rocket skates, blamming the hell out of the enemy and then running away before it then gets pinned and obliterated.

In terms of your own army however - I would recommend sitting down and having a good hard think about what it is you want your SHDT to do - are we talking about a slow moving brick of Armour and guns? B52 style? or a fast moving glass cannon with a possible secondary use? Or a floating troop carrier that only deals light damage but shrugs off most hits, and literally rolls into the enemy while vomiting troops left, right and center?

Image

On top of this, does it fit your army style? And your play style to boot? You gotta consider this as well to make sure everything plays out your way.

Best of luck to yee dude, I look forward to seeing what you put out there. :D

I don't want to dissapoint, but its not a SHDT, its just a regular tank that hovers instead of having treads. :oops:
This is a work in progress shot:

Yeah, the problem I'm having on it is that the bottom is just a flat plate, and I was wondering what do do to make it look better on the bottom.

If I ever do build something like that though, I'll keep that all in mind. Thanks for the long response, too.

A cheap way to make the bottom work would be to add triangular sloop pieces.

I was thinking that, but I'm gonna have to check that I have enough pieces, which I"m pretty sure I don't.

I like these:

LEGO White Plate Round 2x2 Rounded Bottom 4278271 (single,N)

Image

3 or 4 of those look like repulsors and you can add a plate or whatever to make the tank hover a little higher.

Yeah, I finished it tonight, but I'm gonna build one more thing, then do a NCR update thread. Thanks for all the advice.

Can i be an admin on the Facebook group? Reason: i want to kick out the Piltogg twat. My reasoning: he is not german and thus not good enough to wear swastikas. He will be pissed. Everyone wins.

Fritz or Derek? Because one of them is a valued brikwarrior and old guard.

Edit: Now I know you're talking about Fritz.

Edit 2: What's even weirder for me is apparently Neo-nazis accept all whites (minus dapper gentlemen, half breeds and Jews).

Edit 3: He also seems to be a juggalo. I don't know what's worse at this point.

For Brikspace... Do you have to follow the rules of Max CP, cause for a Dreadnaught, 36 CP isn't nearly enough points to have all the dakka I have on it now.

Also, do weapons need Cargo space too?

Also, is there a simpler version of microspace?

Epic chat:

<colette>: If the TA went to war with Brittannia, what would happen?
<theblackdog>: Your guess is probably as good as mine.
<colette>: It appears Klaus is in a position to assassinate Victoria.
<theblackdog>: I don't know whether she's a real queen or just a figurehead like in modern Britain though
