Bantha Fodder by AltugBulca Bantha Fodder by AltugBulca
This is bantha fodder from my Star wars RPG campaign. I designed it with influences from B-Wing & Ebon Hawk from KOTOR series

This is such an excellent mash up of both ship designs. I approve!

I really like your ship designs. I wish there were more freighter ships out there to see and admire.

Same here. People are more fond of sleek fighters & big cruisers or gunships nowadays. But I love the fringer life-style and have most fun designing them

Excellent! This is a design that needs to be a model kit, something I can hold in my hand and gawk at in 3D.

Thank you, Quite a compliment coming from a skilled artist such as yourself. Unfortunately, I do not have the skills with 3D modeling programs to model it in 3D or build a live model myself, but I certainly would like to have it modeled in some way. Thanks again for the kind words.

Yes, the influences are pretty obvious yet some deviants also commented that it also looked like freighter twilight from clone wars. I did not notice the resemblence until they mentioned. Yet I hadn't seen that ship yet when I first designed it. The interior design is all different from them as well [link] & [link]

Interesting design, and I saw the D6 stats for it which is fantastic.

Wish I could find a group that plays that still.

:iconaltugbulca:
AltugBulca Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks, Actually we ancient people still do play WEG D6. (In our opinion it is still the only way to play SW RPG)
My group has been playing the game for the past 15 yrs. (one character is even still playing the same character for the whole time. you can find their sketches in my deviations portfolio) We're all married and our wives still can not figure out why grown men over 30 yrs old are still pretending to be in a galaxy far far away...

I gotta admit I do miss being able to play D6 Star Wars. At this point I'd have to run a game to see anything being done with D6. And I knew a couple of people who did the same thing with having one main character in their system (wasn't WEG but still the same concept).

As for the wives someone in your group should mebbe run a session for them, let them see what it's like and go from there.

On a side note, have you seen that Fantasy Flight Gaming has the rights now? I think they'll treat the property well and my proof is based in four books called Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader, Deathwatch, and Black Crusade. It's roleplaying in the Warhammer 40K universe and it's pretty well done I think.

I sure hope so after the WoTC disaster they tried to feed us. But to be frank no matter how good it is, I would not change my system because I have all the WEG books published (including Adv. Journals) & all my adventures are set in Original Trilogy or Bantam novels timeline afterwards. I think whoever takes the franchise will focus more on Prequel Trilogy & Clone Wars Cartoon (Which is overabused & overmilked in my opinion), I am 32 & I still think About OT when I think of SW.

I would gladly play a W40K campaign in a good system though.

About your comment on the wives. Been there, done that. Their dread at the table when they see the men they married became 15 yr olds again was priceless (yet costly afterwards):Din short it did not work! thanks for caring

It helps that all the prequels and KoToR and the like are probably being converted on the holocron [link] I've found that running a decent campaign isn't about the time frame it's run in but that's just me.

As for the 40K games, the system Fantasy Flight is using is a good one. It's based on 2nd ed Warhammer Fantasy Role-Play which is an excellent system. It's percentile based where your career determines what you get.

Oops oh well, at least they should be happy that you guys are having fun.

I definately agree that a good campaign is always a pleasure to adventure in regardless of timeframe although one can still have favourite concept, timelines or geography to play in

Although I was aware of a few D6 sites I was not aware of the existence of the holocron for the past 16 yrs. we've been playing the game. Thanks for waking me up?

Nice :thumbsup: It does resemble both the B-wing and the Twilight from Clone Wars. Your detail work is also reminiscent of McQuarrie's way of drawing small parts. If you could make it look like a sketch I'm sure one could mistake it for old SW concept art.

I did not realize the resemblance until you mentioned. Nevertheless my primary inspiration came from earlier designs

-the folded wing from b wing
-cockpit and the main body ebon hawk from KOTOR series
-single engine attached to the wing. x wing s-foil
-far stabilizer is scavanged from a tie fighter

you have a good eye though :)

Awesome. I've never actually RPed myself more than a couple of runthroughs with my more experienced friends, but I have studied the SW Ships book. :D Though its D20 and Wizards of the Coast...whatever that really means.

I like how you didn't give your ship a full on .5x hyperdrive. Makes it a bit more realistic. And I really like how you listed what modifications you added, thats the best part. Did you use a RP book for that, or did you use something like the Wookieepedia to figure that all out.
May not be quite as good as the Falcon, but just as ramshackle as it? :D

:iconaltugbulca:
AltugBulca Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Absolutely :D one hell of a bolt bucket that ship is. Actually in my RP campaign her designer "Doc" is one of the characters in Mr. Brian Daley's Han Solo novel trilogy. In the novels He was the chief engineer that made the first major modifications to the Falcon. I my campaign My ship was his previous work, a test bed & prototype for many modifications he made on the Falcon afterwards. the major difference between two ships is mine was designed and built from scratch as an amalgam of many ships where as M.falcon is a heavily modified CEC YT-1300 which is a known model in SW universe. (not that mine was shy of modifications as you have realised yourself)

As for modifications details (names & models etc.)Of course wookiepedia was a great help as well as SW incredible cross sections books (I own all of the published versions) But what I recommend is the novel "Millenium falcon" which was a great resource.

By the way in a few days I will post a deviation called "Alderaan" A privateer Nebulon-B frigate that played a prominent role in my campaign (a shame it was destroyed in a game session :()

Ah I see. Thats awesome. Your background for it is awesome. Would you happen to have anymore? (just of Bantha Fodder though). Can't wait to see Alderaan, that sounds cool. Any neat alterations to that? Like the Nebulon-B2 or something?

I too have all the cross section books, fantastic pieces they are. I started "Millennium Falcon" a long time ago, but never got around to finishing it. Picked it up the other day though, after seeing Bantha Fodder ;)

My ship is also an amalgam of a couple ships. A YT-1300 with a centralized cockpit,extra cargo pods and B-Wing pieces. Though, I haven't gone as extensively into the details as you have. I may have to do that soon though!
