Table:

AX-2-2 Variant

The AX-2-2 varient is a Tiger Shark that has been modified to carry and deploy two Remora Drone Stealth Fighters.

Pics to follow, mapping based on Epic scale AX-2-2.

Issues:
- Drone bay into "drone... bay"
- Under rack cover.
- Modify to add BCs? or "use" the mounted drone as BCs so the model can be played as a next gen Tigershark.
Image

Also pretty sure there is 0 air cast crew, cause there will be 0 room for air cast crew. Unless he is laying done flat hugging the bay.

( drills, saws, and tools... 1 expensive scared tiger shark )

Table:

AX-2-2 Variant

- Under rack - Done
- Modified front and cabin - done
-- Fill mold front -
- Mag mounting - Fitted
- Drone - Done
- Stand/Mounting - Done

I had doubts, but by god it looks pretty dam good and close to the Epic model. Pics to follow after front fill mold and sanding, mag mounting drone, and paint coat.

Initial Problems:

Jeweler saw to a tiger shark... A lot of sawing.
Figuring out the mount and modified body without going crazy.
Solving the under "disk" mount.
Making sure to still be able to function as a 2 R drone AX-2-2.



Glad I built a Tiger and AX 1-0 before this project.

Initial run destroyed all of the C2 and the gun beasts. An impossible high G turn and still they are launching rockets, bullets, and hyper sonic shells.

Well the rumor engine is up and going on our codex. It will be interesting to see what takes place with our lore and meta.
Image

The stormsurge is C or B range. For the PL/Points, there are much better options. That said, it played ok and scared the meta enough to avoid wound investment from the enemy.
Image

No for the greater good is a large nerf to it. As is its poor BS. Take a Tiger shark over a Stormsurge.

On the table: Finished the Titan fall build Ghost.

I wish the Ghost was better model on the table, such a cool looking unit.

- New Cuda's are pretty good. 2 are on par'ish with a Tigershark.
- Our Fortification are very good for the cost.

I love your AX-2-2 Tiger Shark! The Remoras were one of my favourite units last edition, haven't played them much this edition (are they any good?) and does your AX-2-2 have much utility on the table. I appreciate that there aren't rules for it so it would have to be in a friendly game but have you thought of any homebrew rules for it? Points cost etc.

Do you prefer two barracudas or one tiger shark seen as you said they are roughly on par?

Looking great!
We gave them a chance at the greater good, now they die

Thanks!

- Remoras are on paper not as good in my opinion. Also the new rules limiting fliers on objectives nerfs one of its roles.

- I run the AX2-2 as a TigerShark. I modified the drone bay to support mag locked weapons. Like a C-130 gunship. When it is not flying drones, it is sporting Cuda weapons or AX 1-0 heavy rail.

- I do not do any home rules designs. Run your like a tiger shark, even with a perma mounted Remora you can WYSIWYG the BC it has as the BC for the bird.

- Do I think 2 Cuda is better than 1 Tiger? No and Yes. Depending on points or PL, weapons of your enemy, and the rest of your army design their value could be equal. But all things even, you point to effect on one Tiger is better. But Two Cuda is safer.
