I'm currently doing a WEG SWd6 campaign set in the Thrawn era where the PCs are a part salvager team and part merc company.
They have recently gotten hold of a lot of broken Tie parts and disassembled Clone War surplus, including several crates of V-19 torrent wing assemblies including lasers. The engineer/tech specialist got the idea of marrying a TIE ball cockpit to with a V-19 wing set and souped up lasers, and after some heavy brainstorming and some serious tinkering he actually got one working.
He's now working on creating at least a squadron on these ugly-type starfighters he dubbed the V-Tie to use as ship defense and ground attack craft.
I would like to have a picture of the V-Tie ugly to show the rest of the group.
That was the request...this was my answer
That turned out beautifully!! I was kind of wondering how the TIE ball would mesh with this design, but you nailed it.
That ship is SICK
SICK = Severly Intimidating Czerka Killer?
So boss. The design and the detail make me tingle...
I added air brakes for atmospheric flight to compensate for the lack of the flat surfaces of the V-19 body. Plus, I liked having something going up...it was that or a long range sensor antenna
That is amazeballs! I think if I'd have the stats for this baby, I'd use it some time in a game.
This pic really turned out awesome! Thanks for doing my request.
Oh and for folks wanting the stats I'll see if i can dig them up from my notes.
I would love to see the stats. As I mentioned on the other blog thread I see great potential for this ship. It can be a light patrol craft, heavy attack ship, or even a light intfrceptor. "Do or do not, there is no try!"
Beautiful work! I think you really captured the essence of what this ship is suppose to look like.
Here's the baseline stats for the V-Tie ugly. I kinda cobbled together this in a hurry from the stats for the Tie fighter, the Tie Interceptor and the fanmade stats for the V-19 Torrent, so there could be flaws or oddities in these stats i haven't noticed yet.
