Still keeping with my Clone Wars homage momentum, but going for IO scale this time!

I'm not a huge Star Wars fan, but I know what I like. And I like this. The coloring is spot on and so is the design. You should be very proud of this one VitorFaria

Thanks Artasid, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I'm not a huge fan of Clone Wars era Star Wars either, but I sure love the mechanical design!

Really nice build, and the color scheme makes the details pop-up. I really like how you managed to evoke the original design.

Functionally, I can see this work as a great escort frigate for larger ships.

The good ol' Dusty Base! Stupid question, but isn't point defense the equivalent of melee range instead of defense?

Point Defense is two Ruler units in range.

Thanks a lot, folks!

The guns are supposed to represent all three systems, the two point defense systems and the defense one. Because you can't have three point-defense systems.

I'm not too familiar with Star Wars Tech, but doesn't the Consular have Deflector Screens? You could use that as for the d6B and still use all the guns to be d6Rh d6Rh d8Rh (or the IO equivalent)?

Sure I could, Artasid, this was just me trying to be cheeky, don't take it too seriously.
