    The news of an AvP dropship kickstarter reminded me of my kitbash solution from years ago, and I thought I’d point out that the toy that is the basis for it is still to be had…

    Add a simple box to the underside to create a crude ‘M113-ish’ troop carrier…

    Perfect for 15mm, but would work size-wise for 6mm or even 28mm (as I do – doesn’t take up too much tablespace).

    Looks good, sorry for this next question, I am probably being dim, is that cargo box your addition or does it come with it?

    Scratchbuilt addition: Just some styrene sheet over a foam block with a few greeblies added.

    It’s not intended to be a centerpiece, just a “Here’s where you start” and/or “Here’s where you finish” marker.

    This is probably gonna sound stupid but I’ve often wondered on seeing such posts (as there’s a lot of them in 15mm sci-fi circles):

    Do people actually use dropships in games much? As anything but scenery? It’s like helicopters in modern stuff to me (outside of 6mm anyway), they’re kinda there as an option but are almost always too big/fast/fragile to feature on a board rather than as an off-board asset or piece of terrain. As I see it anyway that is.

    re: …anything but scenery

    I agree.  Mostly eye candy.  My ground transports are the same,,,

    …though scenarios do allow for support fire once/if troops get (or stay) in them to operate the weapons.
