I have lot of problem with him.

It supposed start from a TIE ball (~2,7m Ø) but at the end it measure 24m length !!
All illustrationS i found are cheating, and i don't know why because each website quote "24m"..


I tested one, but it looks limousine, then i try compromise.
Can you give your opinion ?
the wingS are 24m (8,8cm) long but i don't know where put the cockpit.. Perhaps I should lengthen still?

Who said that that's a standard-sized TIE ball? Just scale the whole thing up to reach the indicated size. It's not a fighter, it's a transport with a 60 tons cargo bay.

Quote:

The unipod hull appears to be much longer and thicker than that of the smaller TIE fighters, but the front end is the same standard ball cockpit.


and it's on their grid too :



In fact, if I scale the scout with the common ratio: for 24 length, it will be 24 weigth..
the ball will be larger than a full T-fighter (with wings)

I don't know but it's seems weird ?
(and why a starship constructor will scale up a cockpit like that? it doesn't make sense)

Most likely they got the measurements from the X-Wing and Tie Fighter games. All of those measurements are 2x what they should be. Dropping the length by half should yield better results.

I followed your advice, i think it's not 24m but i'm sure it's not like a Tie advanced..A compromise is required cause all recurring information tell it's a big vessel ;
- 60 metric tons for the SCOUT because he has lot of military stuff (radar hightech), 150metric tons for the civilian copy ---> more than an YT-1300. And he can charge 4 persons.
- he is described with large pylone cause the lenght of his wings. Futhermore he NEED more larger solar panel than anyTIE cause he has Hyperdrive and is build FOR solo and autonomous travel.
... but classisc TIE wing are very large by default... so how many larger?
- and he is build from a TIE cockpit, as already said.

I think it's hard to renounce at anchored visuals from fan art.
I try some variant, i cheated a lot for the last at the "right ratio" but i really don't like it.


Anyway, i want make a pause with this and present you STATS for this TIE meeple


May be i will remove his evasion, but i want to keep him very "sneaky" (eel-bucky?). I hope he is frail and need a good micro-gestion.
I don't know how it could cost.. look at all card to help me to define this :


The GEAR symbol is a special upgrade for him:

choice between remplacement

or surviability




And at last a Special Crew that i had already done for X-Wing

it was not for him but it could be terrible on !


What do you think about?

Love the art for the ballistics team card. Very memorable shot from the film for me.
