I read the first part and there were lots of grammar mistakes. I didn't read the other ones because it looked too long.

Having skimmed it, the plot isn't half bad. Your form is...okay, so your form is terrible.
Fact: MOST people can't write.

Explain what you mean by form.  As in style, grammar errors, incorrect usage of grammar stuff, what.  Ill be editing the parts Tuesday when I get to a computer and not a smart phone, so if I can write down notes now, it will make correcting easier and the overall product will look better.

I can't read this! I'm sorry. The syntax- i.e. your lack of paragraphs- completely puts me off. Fix it and I'll read.

My suggestion is for the captain of the War Hawk to jury-rig one of his missiles to function as a courier pod and fire it as part of a missile volley against the pursuing immortal ships.  It'll pass by ("missing" its apparent targets) and then pop a portal or wormhole or something and bring a full report to the nearest Skyian staging area, while War Hawk suffers its inevitable destruction (it likely would be too damaged to escape, so the message pod is its only realistic way to get word out of what's happened).

Problem with that, the missiles won't be able to be swaped out to hold a message. But, that does give me a related idea.  Thanks!

Okay, Im back at my house, and can put up some pic's that i took a while ago, so here they are:
Image
^ an Overwatch shot of my infantry, lacking, but i have some...

Image
^ A Overwatch shot of the human force.  I have 2 heros with each one redshirt and axe, and then i have 3 troopers with double-barreled laser weapons, and a sergeant with dual-wielding SMG's.  I then have a officer with a pistol and chainsword

Image
^ A Overwatch of my Combat Droids and human extras that are incomplete. I have on this platte 2 armless mechanics, 1 armless female medic, 2 complete pilots and one almost complete pilot.  Then, on the robotic side, is the heavies. There is 2 silver commanders, one blue with a sweet staff that will ride in my ship (once it is done) and one red that will oversee the ground forces.  i have found enough pieces to completely reconstruct 4 brown combat droids, and found parts to two more, and i suspect that there maybe more i need to find.  The brown will carry the big guns, but not the artillery pieces like last time.

Image
^ ah yes, this is my scout speeder.  it is a skimmer, and does not need wheels, for it floats above the ground.  some may say that it is because I lost the wheels to it a while ago, but there WRONG! It has advanced radio equipment, and a blaster in the front, and a spear for running into people!

Image
^ so yeah, this is essentially the scout of the army.

Image
^ The 3rd mechanic, with 3 spider droids.  once i finish the 2 other mechanics, i will have one spider droid helping one mechanic.  the spider droid adds +D6" onto the available area where the mechanic can collect bricks for construction for the spider droid brings the bricks to him while he builds.

Image
^ another shot of the officer

Image
^ a pic of some of the other weapons, with variable weapon attachments

Image
^ hmm flash didn't work, probably covered it up with a finger

The hot rod Fighters!

Postby Skyian Leader » Mon Jul 04, 2011 11:22 pm

Image
^ Ah yes, the mrk II 'Hotrod' Interceptors.  I am not too proud of the final product, as i am in the fact i am more proud that I made 3 of the same thing, using the pilots from the previous post.

Image
^ a pic of part of my lego bin.  I don't have that many... And thats a 8' by 4' table it's on.

Image
^pretty much the rest of my legos that i can use. lots of basic bricks, but not so much of the newer, special, curvy bricks...  :(

Image
^ the fighter with the grey tail fin was a 3rd fighter i slapped together after finding 70% of the pieces and realizing i have a extra pilot.  So, some of the pieces are yellow cause i couldn't find the correct grey color piece i needed.

Image
^ a pic with all three coming head on!  

Image
^ a group pic with the outdated version of the Skyhawk Heavy Bomber

Image
^ a close up of one of the fighters.  you can see the vtol engines on the side, and the main thruster on the back, with the large and awesome tail fin.  I think the engine piece on the front and the large spoiler on the back really adds charature to the model.

Image
^ an image of the cockpit, the cover removed.

Image
^ a shot from the side.  you cn see the VtOL engines clearly again.

Image
^ you can clearly see the guns on the plane, 2 Lvl 3 chain guns, for the reliability, and 2 Lvl 4 Heavy Flack Cannons.  there is room for missiles as well.

Image
^ why did i take so many head on pic's?

Image
^ redundant image is redundant...

Image
^...

Image
^ another side shot

Image
^ again without the flash

Image

Image

Image

Image
^ pics of the rear.  i guess i must of been really bored and just took pic's when i took pic's  :|

Image
^ the underside

Image

Image
^ me holding it, just more pics.  also, if you havent notuced, this is kinda picture heavy...

Image
^all 3 flying in formation near the clothes basket!

Image
^ escorting a bomber

Image
^ image of the comparison between my tank and the Intercepter.

okay, more of the starhawk bomber, with the engines redone!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
^ pic's of the Starhawk Heavy Bomber with the engines removed and two of the turrets removed!  It looks so smother!? (is that a word?)

Image
Image
^ i kept the turrets essentially in the same spot, but modified the engines, and moved them back, and attached them to the sides

Image
Image
Image
^ pic's from the front view of the aircraft.  I think it looks a lot better than version one!

Image
^A image from the side

Image
^ agh! to bright!

Image
^ hmm, im gonna need a stronger stand...

Image
Image
^ top down views

Image
Image
^ and yet more angle images

Not enough photos.

Those are some Ace Fighters though. The Bomber is an appropriate size for detail and it's bigger than most frigates. So yeah. GJ.

The Starhawk is my favourite out of all the stuff here, but the interceptors look nice, too.

Okay, a group shot of everything.  In here there is 1 robotics frigate, 1 Planetary Lander (the hull is converted from a heavy freighter ), 5 Falcon Class heavy destroyers, and one Leviathan Class Super Dreadnought.

Image
Another shot of the fleets attack craft, to include the 3 Interceptors and 2 (now 4) bombers.
More info soon, I'll be out of Internet connection for the next week or so, so expect more then!
