If you're a fan of the AT-PT, you're in for a treat, the Fractalsponge AT-PT. I'll be adding an image link and updating the stats momentarily.

Also, Fractal is doing some very exciting things with the AT-ACT from Rogue One, reimagining it as a combat engineering vehicle for walker formations. The internal bay can carry self-deploying hard-light bridge modules for crossing large gaps, or a tractor beam projector that can be used for obstacle clearance or vehicle recovery.


The AT-PT is one of my all time non-movie vehicles, buy I have never loved the WEG stats for it because it was just a scaled down version of the AT-ST which thought was itself too weak as far as its body strength was concerned. I am curious to see your take on the AT-PT.

As far as Fractalsponge's work, it is always top notch, but he never shows his land vehicles from the top down perspective, so I cannot use them in my online map-based games. I have requested it on several posts but the requests do not seem to have been regarded, unfortunately.

There's a limit to how tough you can make the AT-PT before it starts crowding the AT-ST in terms of Body Strength. I've already done stats, but made a slight name change from Personal Transport to Patrol Vehicle. Of course, since I redid the grenade launcher stats on the AT-ST and -ST/a, I'll need to revise the AT-PV's stats since it has the same weapon.

Are you on the Discord at all? It's a great place to talk to Fractal directly. Either that or you can comment on his Personal Commissions page.

@Dr Bidlo: I sent him a PM and he said he could do a set of top-down renders in zip files for ~$50, depending on what all you want done. When I asked him, I said ships and vehicles, but if you’re just looking for vehicles, it might be easier.

Your stats address my concern about the weakness by increasing its Body Strength by +1D. Of course, you would have to increase the Body Strength of the AT-ST by +1D as well, which you did in one of your versions.

A bit quiet around here, so I'll give this a project update bump...

I'm currently working on stats for Fractal's All-Terrain Heavy Artillery walker, but in order to get something I'm satisfied with, I'm having to go back and re-work some of the basics of my Artillery Rules, particularly shell types.

I'm also having to come up with rules that I like for the Super-Beam Cannon and the Shield Generator. I may have something up in the next couple days.

Always great work.

One question though having looked at the link, it seems there are several systems sharing the basic wlaker platform one with multiple guns, one with what looks like comms dishes and of course the big boom.

Will you be doing all of the variants?


yeah it has been unusally quiet here, maybe people are taking a little easter break

To get the full picture, also consider that his stats are based on an alternate scale system (which I also use).

Yes, which is why it's taking so long. The dish is actually a mobile shield generator and the boom is the beam cannon used by the SPHA-T in AotC, neither of which have acceptable stats, AFAIC. In the process, I've run across several annoying inconsistencies in my Artillery weapon stats, and have decided to do an update of several existing stats to be more internally consistent. I've also learned that the MLRS system fitted to the Scythe can potentially be used to launch SAMs, which my current stats don't allow for at all.

When I finally finish, the AT-HA will have a front modular turret that can fit all the main turret options fitted to the Scythe, while the main modular turret will be able to do the same, plus some additional, heavier systems: a dual howitzer, a heavy beam cannon or a shield generator (although the latter two will need an auxiliary power system in the front modular turret).

I actually emailed him about this last year, offered to pay for him to just do top-down shots of existing pieces. Never heard back.

I'd be willing to throw some money at this if you decide to do it.

PM Dr. Bidlo; I reached out to Fractal on his behalf, and Fractal said to email him, so the two of you may be able to pool your resources.

Yeah, I should've directed that post to him, even if I was responding to you. Thanks, either way. Very Happy

Apologies for the false alarm; my computer locked up and the only way to save the incomplete stat for the AT-HA was to submit it, then recover it once I rebooted.

Okay, I'm not entirely satisfied with this, but it has already taken me entirely too long to get to this point, so here is the...

All-Terrain Heavy Artillery

Images

The AT-HA is the Imperial Army's replacement for the Clone Wars-era SPHA series, providing the Imperial Army with a versatile, mobile heavy weapons platform that can even threaten capital ships in low orbit. The AT-HA is a more efficient design, doing away with the SPHA-T's integrated troop capacity and greatly reducing the number of point defense weapons (although the ones that remain are individually more capable). This is in keeping with Imperial Army combined arms doctrine where escort and defense is provided by dedicated vehicles, with space aboard the walker itself dedicated primarily to weapons and mission equipment. The AT-HA also does away with SPHA's various sub-classes by way of a modular system that allows individual AT-HAs to be configured with a variety of turret modules as befits the specific requirements of a given deployment.

The Mandator III has been a long-running joke in the Fractalsponge community, to the effect that it would never get done, and that asking about it only made it less likely. Fractal has even gotten in on the act by starting the WIP-Mandator Discord Thread on April 1st of last year. And yet somehow, the idea got traction, and Fractal has recently posted the WIP's #2 and #3, so we may finally see the real thing in all its glory.

I added a little twist to the Victory III-Class. Fractal's model features clamshell panels that hinge open to expose the port and starboard launch tubes. I decided to include rules for those panels, to the effect that they take two rounds to open or close, and that while open, the launchers themselves are vulnerable to attack, decreasing the ship's Hull when resisting attacks from the Left and Right Fire Arcs.
