Here are a few HVA's with no particular faction affiliation.

First the container handler, a ship that's sorta a combination tugboat/forklift. The containers are similar to modern shipping containers, only much larger. They could hold pretty much anything and some could have atmoshpere depending on the cargo. I picture them being used like modern sea going barges, with the handler pushing a long "train" of them around a system. The floating containers can also be used as space debris/cover.

A mobile drydock, the name pretty much says it all. The armature is adjustable to fit different ship designs. At the ends of the armature are airlocks/ break rooms for workers in personal suits to use, the slope pieces on the flanks are hangars for labor frames to deploy from.

These are awesome! Would make for a fun and thematic battle space with these on the board. :)

Thanks! They are tied in with the ship graveyard themed board I am working on.

I like the Mobile Drydock, but I think the Container Handler needs a splash of some other color to break up all the Yellow.

That dock is really wonderful. I love that it is a functional piece that can handle ships rather than just a set-piece that looks like a ship in dock.

Thanks Mantisking, I agree the Container Handler could use more colors, I'll see what I can scare up and post some pics if I like the results.

Thanks! I'm kinda tempted to write up some house rules allowing it to repair ships in game...
