What size would a minifig be in comparison to these microspace ships?

I believe I can speak for Shadowscythe here, as the ships are in Warhead Scale, Approximately what yours are built in.

Yep indeedy - the ships are in "Warhead" scale, but I did start off in the original "Microspace" scale for my first ships.

As a note - I have added a new page to the wiki - which people can go forth and add things too if they have anything - http://brikwars.wikispaces.com/Walking_Tanks

Just curious, is there anywhere on the forum or Wiki where these various ship scales are defined?

Thanks

I'm now getting tired of people forever trying to associate scales, measurements and units to appropriate areas of awesome - so what I am going to say is thus -

Start off with a frigate being approxamately 6 to 10 studs long (as appropriate) and build up from there, just keep it sensible and you'll be fine - there is absolutely no need to try and shoe-horn everything into a bleeding spreadsheet of scales and sizes.

The only reason I adopted it was because I could see just how much extra detail and aweome he could fit into one of his ships - and I just went from there, if you want to build smaller for playability - go ahead, if you want to build larger for looks, go ahead - just for the love of god - BUILD, and don't be afraid of everyone else and their scale sizes.

Now I've said that - go and have some damn fun already, fuck knows the forum needs it. :roll: :wink: :lol:

Wow did I push someone's button or what?

As someone who is way new, I just wanted to know what all the scale are. I just see the people here talk about these as if they were defined and thus wanted to understand. I have seen comments about 100 stud limits etc. I could not give a rat's ass about any spread sheets and am OK with the idea that the scales might not be defined.

And your overall point is well taken. :D

The onehundred stud thing is actually one hundred and ten, and it's for minifig scale cruisers. The 110 rule is the lower limit of a gigantic Lego SHIP, and it doesn't apply to microscale.

Well, I was challenged to build it - and I attempted it . . . I didn't have enough ball joints to build an actual Tarantula - so here is a (hopefully awesome) second best . . . ladies, gentlemen and small children addicted to gratuitous violence, I present to yee -

- SYCTHIAN RIGEL KENTAURUS MILITARY CATALOUGES -

- INFANTRY FIGHTING VEHICLE -

- BLACK WIDOW INFANTRY FIGHTING VEHICLE -

The Tarantula is now the complete sucsessor to the aging Armadillo design, but during the Tarantula's design phase - a number of hull configurations, weapon systems and power systems where tested and failed before the final model rolled off of the production lines at Rigel Kentaurus.

One of the "Failed" configurations was the T-MBT-PPT-682 (Tarantula-Main Battle Tank-Prototype-model 682) which was faster than the main line model, but featured an open top troop compartment, considerably thinner armour - but suffered from major power distribution issues.

In the end, the T-MBT-PPT-682 was fated to never leave the skunkworks of Rigel Kentaurus until the design was adopted by the Scythian Royal Marines.

Despite the vehicles many short comings, it showed promise as a light, fast attack vehicle that could perform skirmishing actions and hit and run attacks in highly urbanised areas and dense terrain. The design was adopted, and then completely re-worked solely for the use of the Royal marines - and so the "Black Widow" was born.

Image

Image

Image

Pictured above is the Black Widow in it's standard configuration, with the main turret slot empty, and a single underside laser cannon for dealing with infantry threats.

Note the side panels for access, armoured rear compartment, and cargo netting for battlefield utility usage.

Image

Here is the main turret option (one of two) the turreted Heavy Laser/multi missile launcher. The assembly for the Heavy Laser has been lifted directly from the rail gun assembly of the Armadillo (the Black Widows spiritual ancestor) and then adapted over to modern laser weaponry standards. The multi missile launcher has been lifted directly from the Armadillo with missile to no change, except for a slightly lower ammunition count.

Image

The secondary turret option (of two) is an Anti-air Laser beam cannon, which differs from standard Scythian lasers in that it fires twin beams rather than blasts, and dissects enemy aircraft rather than blasting chunks out of them.

Image

As a final noteworthy addition to the Black Widows design - the side ladders can also act as pontoons for Scythian Marines to use to fire from in a hot situation for additional fire support.

C&C is as always appreciated - lemme know what ya'll think! :twisted:

Love the weapons on that thing, especially the turreted Heavy Laser/multi missile launcher. Great to see you making stuff. I hope you would want my honesty here so I have to say that the wheels just don't look right. Too small or something. The rest is good.

Also, I wonder if you can break down those battle suits for me sometime. They look badass and I need to know what I'm short on if I'm to attempt one.

Yes, quite the surprise eh?

Heh, I loved the Armadillo turret so much I couldn't bear with breaking it apart - so I shrunk it down a little and came out with this newer version - part of my likes it more than the old one, but part of me also misses the longer barrel, so I'm a little 50/50 over the whole design.

As for the legs, I have to agree with you - they do seem a little off, but I couldn't go with anything else due to lack of parts. I think it works better with the Tarantula design as they have 6 legs instead of 4.

Also - To both comments, I kinda stole the design for the SIBAS off of someone else, but I did provide the link earlier in the thread.

The link again is here - http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/115721 and it does include a parts break down for the "original" model - and I've made a few cosmetic alterations which I'll re-post in picture form now.

(Unfortunately - phone camera are SUCK! but hey, there we go!)

And with this, I disappear into the Ether again to work on something else!

Did I get it right? Close enough? Forget the colours I'm just testing for the correct parts first.
