Default Super Heavy Crayfish

Ok now I have gone and done it.

I have built a Super Heavy Crayfish.
Thats right this Crayfish can take the place of your broadsides if you like.

He is big enough and able enough to do it and the rules are really close so as long as you let your buddies know it should be ok.





Well here he is the new Super Heavy Crayfish that can take even your Broadsides place.






Heres a size comparison of him and a normal Crayfish.

And heres one with him and a drone to show how big his drone body is and a Stealth suit for size comparison.

And yes he turned out so big he needed 6 legs!
And a turret with sites instead of just an arm mount for the weapon.

Let me know what you think of the conversion not the paint job.
I havent painted him yet.

Hey what'cha doing following me???

Cool glad to see you here.
Coming over to the Xeno side of the force?

Oh and thanks for the input on the conversion.
Well I know I cant convert your stuff for you so you can use any of my ideas you want.
If you like any of them go right ahead or if you want any input I would love to give some?

You always give me great input and feedback.

Thanks again.

Thanks man I like the troop one too its my favorite.
I was just making it to make a new version.
Something more closer to a Suit version.

Anyways its just one of those things.
I have to convert so I just had to make the other version I spoke of and came up with so I built it.

Thaks again.

Let me start of saying I might be in love... NOT WITH YOU... but with that gun!!!

Are you making the rules?... You don't plan on submunition shot as a posibility... I ask because the rail gun looks quite big... and so I just wanted to say that I doubt it's big enough for the tank gun(which is what enables that submunition shot)...

THanks Karla and no your right on with the rail gun staying at the stats of the Broadside rules.

And I dont have to make any rules for it if I dont want because I can use it exactly as a Broadside and equip it with any of the Broadsides gear.

Or you could.

Like adding a stable firing platform so it can move and shoot because of the 6 legs etc.

It can be well sort of vdr made it someone wanted but I think the Braodside rules work fine for it.
And then I can actually play it.

And thank you for the kind words and glad you really like my work..Not me ... my work... ;D

You know based on wargammers rules I left the jet engines on the back and the anti grav could still work?
If you wanted them to.
the 6 legs may have to "Dig In" to fire the massive rail gun though so it maybe shouldn't move and fire.

Wargammer what do you think and if you want I would love to see some of your rules for it?
