That is one of the most out there designs I think you have done, so vivid yellow it should look wrong yet somehow works and looks just what you would expect for a mining guild that buys some surplus TIE off Seinar does some modifications then paints to match their logo. Excellent background too the asteroid and mountain suit a mining guild perfectly.

Thanks LSG, but I can't claim credit for the backgrounds in the static images - the first (title) image is actually a screenshot of Lothal from Rebels, the asteroid image is a free download from StarWars.com for people to use for Zoom or Twitch vlogs etc!(StarWars.com has a free gallery of about 3 dozen images) The animated backdrop is an HDRi hi definition image I used from a panorama wallpaper site but it looked so much like Lothal's canyons I had to use it (also, you might recognise it from your Vornyx Fighter images  Wink )

And I'm glad you liked the craziness of this TIE fighter but I do have....another! And it is totally off the chain (it was a request build for TheDutchman).

Thanks and points to both you and Logos.

Hi Logos, there is the possibility that the Mining Guild spent a bit of money and used more efficient parts in their TIE-MG ships, they did after all install atmospheric control for the cockpits so maybe they had better solar arrays too. The Empire also relied on intimidation and weight in numbers, it was stated somewhere that Imp TIE pilots were "expendable". I don't know but my TIE fighter I first posted had shield generators (totally non canon of course  Smiley )
Possibly. But, if I'm not mistaken, the Empire doesn't like sharing anything; especially ship design. Plus, considering that Sienar was nationalized, I found highly unlikely that the private sector would be able to get their hands on such craft. However, I won't discount that the mining guild was also nationalized in an as-yet-untold story.

It wouldn't surprise me that the Empire "allowed" Seinar and the Guilds to do business, there would more than likely be a shady deal somewhere. The Empire would want some control and bargaining power over the Guilds so let them have basic TIEs to protect their own interests (so the mining operations were safe and ready to be absorbed by the Empire when they wanted).

I don't know, I'm not a big political guy but I do know the Guilds didn't get hold of the next TIE variant I have built ...it is a beast!

Despite my utter hatred of politics, I do appreciate how much they shape stories within the SW universe.

Hello Everybody,

It's Saturday so that means more new sabers! Due to a bit of an issue with one of my designs I decided not to post a few weeks ago my schedule got twisted and I posted this Mobile Suit Gundam Beam Saber design instead of the curved hilts I intended to post.



Well long story short I posted my Gundam hilt last night on my site to try and rectify my schedule so I need a new design to post here today.
I have been a little bit busy...editing some pictures for a fellow member and FanFic contributor but I DID manage to work on something very special....remember this in PsychoSith's Saber Art thread?



How about a sneak peek?



This hilt is fully modelled and Psycho has seen/approved it and there will be a full gallery coming soon!
Thanks for checking this post out and till next time stay safe.

Thanks HesaHeart and Infinit, a few members here were discussing anime and Gundam in particular a few weeks back and I had built a Macross inspired hilt so thought I'd try the Beam Saber too. I did base mine on the Bandai toy but I only had one reference photo to work from so had to improvise a pommel cap for the hilt. I also had a new add-on for Blender to try out and it worked beautifully on this hilt - making the edges of the switch section cut-outs nice and clean.
Anyhoo here is the reference pic and one of my renders for comparison...





I think it's just about similar without being a carbon copy. Thanks again and points inbound back to you both.
