NuLambda: Lambda-class Shuttle
Well here we go, texturing has begun!  An early WIP of a model by Axem and texture by me

Re: NuLambda: Lambda-class Shuttle
nice, I always did like the lambda (and its gamma variant) and that's looking good so far

Re: NuLambda: Lambda-class Shuttle
Gamma variant?
Gamma-class shuttle (and it's assault transport variant) looks nothing like Lambda.
Maybe you meant the Sentinel: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Sentinel-class_landing_craft
Or Theta-class: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Theta-class_T-2c_shuttle

Re: NuLambda: Lambda-class Shuttle
Yeah, for a second, I thought Headdie might have been referring to the Escort Shuttle, but no matter...

Lastly, from the FotG renders page, I was aware that this was a WIP, but it really seems that it was by no means an early WIP:

Regardless, great stuff, Brand and Axem.

Re: NuLambda: Lambda-class Shuttle
Funk yeah. Seriously, with what's currently WIP or completed right now, I can make my pre-Yavin minicampampaign, even without the ISD. So awesome to see some more FRED-useful ships being churned out, especially at such high quality as this and the DX-9. Good work to all concerned. :)

...again. Shouldn't be much work this time, though, since the existing conversion work can easily be ported to this one.

Re: NuLambda: Lambda-class Shuttle
The sentinel is likely going to make it in at some point.  The gunboat, on the other hand, is a very very low priority for us.  It really doesn't fit the imperial design ethos, hence why it's almost never been used outside of the games.  I'm not 100% ruling it out as a later inclusion, but there are other ships to go in-game which are much more useful while still fitting in with the Imperial style of things.

Pfft.  I love gunz.  And we did have someone previously who had started it, too bad that never got finished.

so We'll be seeing the TIE/?? (bomber/shuttle) soon then?
because the empire sure needs a "heavy fighter" or something with warheads

No, it doesn't appear outside the games because it got supplanted by the Defender and Advanced TIE models, which are significantly more awesome and therefore get more showtime...and because when you get right down to it, it's basically a Rebel fighter wearing an Imperial suit in capablities.

It was always meant to be a niche design for the Imperials, a long-range scout/assault ship, but then TIE Fighter went crazy with things that could fill that role. The poor Star Wing is a victim of being So Last Season.

* Thaeris understands the trope but does not approve...

 :P

I'd throw in that, before getting back on topic, that the Assault Gunboat fits in just about as well as the other Cygnus-designed vessels in the SW-verse. But, indeed, there's more high-priority designs to attend to.

On topic, Brand, when will the FotG pages be updated with the new models/model information?
