Silvercat - Flying saucer interceptor for Saucer War One
« on: February 12, 2021, 12:38:35 AM »
After a long hiatus, (sorry, folks!), we have some new progress with Saucer War One! In a mad flurry of sculpting, I've hammered out the Silvercat in a mere three days!  o_o



The Silvercat is the primary interceptor-saucer for the forces of ANTIC, defending the skies of Earth against the predations of Das Mondreich and the Noordicans.



It will come with magnetisable weapon pods of 30mm cannons or  'Mighty Mouse' 70mm aerial rockets. Very much the weapons of choice for fighting flying saucers in the 1950's!
The Silvercat will be available as a print-ready STL file, or as a complete resin miniature when Saucer War One launches later this year.



I'll have my Elegoo Mars 2 Pro soon, so I hope to show off some printed, and then painted, samples of the 'cat in a short while.

A bit excited, because I can see the opposing fleets of saucers starting to assemble as concepts become sculpts, and will soon be real, actual models!

As a stretch goal for the SW1 Kickstarter, I've been seriously thinking of doing a 30mm scale STL file of the Mondreich Haunebu II with detachable roof and detailed cabin interior.

The models for SW1 are 1/200 scale, but I might have to see what they look like when printed at 1/72 or larger. Definitely a good opportunity to make some really detailed 'hero' models for photoshoots for the rulebook.
