[BB17] Microsails Encore

Post by Zahru II » Thu Mar 16, 2017 2:37 am

After contributing to the 100 pcs fleets, I got the itch to have a crack at small fantasy boats again.

Elven Frigate

Ork Dreadnaught

Note that the Norse ship is missing a 2x2 jumper in the .lxf - for some reason ldd scraps it due to improper placement.

Hey this reminds me of Warhammer Man o' War and that's pretty cool!

The 2x2 jumper issue is cause by some weird part of LDD that doesn't let stud connections and rod connections coexist. I've run into this problem before with other parts. You can remedy this by just moving the bar up slightly so that it doesn't touch the hollow stud of the jumper plate.

I like them all, but my favourite touch is using the coloured lever bases to represent the shields.
