I am so amazed that the Republic Class Cruiser came arround so fast I'm going to make a general request for Yuuzhan Vong ships.
With even a handfull of models it should be possible the create a NJO Total conversion.

The starting Request would be the Yuuzhan Vong Matalok Cruiser. It's equivilant to an MC-80 Mon Cal cruiser in size and shape. But looking more like a large rounded rock. lol

(Their firepower should atleast match that of an ISD and they carry a full 6 squadrons of fighters. Though that won't make any difference to the model I thought I might point it out. ) :)

Well, I'm busy and most of my spare time will be going towards Reloaded so I'll sit this one out (though this is one of the ships on my "To do list" :wink: )

For those interested, here's an image of one hiding behind Leia's head.

Is that Onslaught in Japanese? Can you actually read Japanese 8O Since most of the schools in the U.S. don't teach Japanese I'm going to guess that you either learned it for fun (IN which case you would get along with my sister) or you are Japanese and learned English... Or one of your parents is Japanese and the other speaks English, so they taught you. Or else you could have just gotten that off of the web. But if you want to make a Yuzhan Vong TC it should be very easy.
1: Gather several rocks of varying shades and sizes
2: take digital pictures of them and upload them into your computer
3: Congradulations, you now have a Yuzhan Vong fleet... with no soldiers at all. Still, it could work.

Here's another picture,

And I'd venture to say that's Chinese because there's no kana but I could be wrong, :). In general, I am pretty sure that EvilleJedi has made a model of this before, although not for Rebellion.

Or he got it off the foreign covers at theforce.net... Jap covers look better than the standard US ones.

Hey, I recognize that one! It's the American cover that looks like I painted it! :D

Bingo!
I'm in Australia for starters, and only speak english (though I can speak some words in Italian and Indonesian thanks to compolsary LOTE lessons at school). And it's generally pretty bad english.
As for the pic, it's from theforce.net's book section, foreign cover and Japanese cover in particular. It's only a small crop because the original image was 12 something meg.

Hmm, that rock idea has merit :wink:

EDIT: Well, my group needed me to show off some modelling trials - as if I were learning something - for a project. So what better than a really, bloody ugly and weird looking thing to create from scratch. So model done, textures to come :wink:

That could be one of those Gungan cruisers, or a Yuzhan Voong Cruiser if you roughen it up a bit... What program did you use to make that? Auto Cad, or something? I'm just curious, since I want to learn how to make this stuff.

Wow. Nice model so far I just want to point out one thing.

In the early NJO books it's stated that while the Vong Cruisers are slightly smaller than ISD's in length and width, their rounded shape make them mass a fair bit more.

I don't want to sound like I'm nitpicking but could it be a bit "taller."
Almost like it's overweight after eating too much. :D
Going for phat. rofl

( Off topic ness:
:x I need to start taking my camera with me in the car. I keep seeing the perfect clouds for different ship designs. I've seen about a dozen different Perfect Mon Cal cruiser clouds just this year. )

Hmm, I'll get onto feeding the Vong cruiser - he'll have a bear belly in no time :wink:

Anywho, here's it with textures though non-bloated:

I'll release this model soon and create a "fatter" version as well.

And following the off-topic part, I started carrying a camera around as well to take photos of clouds (which generally come out bad if done poorly due to over exposure) . . . only ever took a few, and never of the best one's - like one that looked like a Corellian Corvette.
Oh well . . . :roll:

Dude, that looks awesome! I especially like the look of dried blood on the wings :twisted:

I always had the impression a vong cruiser looks like a big rock. A Basic shape with a bit of noise should give you a vong lookalike.

Looks nice! In fact, it looks a lot like the Strike Cruiser from Mask's site, but with different textures, or am I just imagining things?

Come to think of it, it might be helpful if you took away from the symmetry of the ship some. NAture doesn't tend to be symmetrical with it's rocks... Unless they're at the core of a planet.
