Official Marauders & Mercenaries Thread: OSO OmniDyne

Recommended Posts

Soon, I just got the OSO Reinforcement Group. I really like the modular parts that make it an escort carrier. However, in my Dindreznzi fleet there is room to place magnets and you interchange parts. 

How are others dealing with switching out the parts and keeping them in place?

I keep some blue-tac in my storage box and sticky them together when I want to use the escorts.  Not particularly elegant, but the cap pieces were small enough I didn't want to drill on them for magnets.  This is also helpful for the ships that just don't want to stay on their peg.  I've got a few that I've worked on repeatedly, but they still crunch over...

Actually, if you used a modeling saw and took your time (as opposed to butchery with a stanley knife...), you should have enough "links" to go around the full squad, seeing as each ring section is 4 "links" long.

To be honest I didn't mind the half-ring. It's just that the Representative/Paradigm model has a strange problem. A full/half ring makes the 'Rep look too big, yet the stub-wing like I've done, is too small for the Paradigm. Ah well, it's done now!:wacko:

Just scoring the "cut" line with a scalpel and then breaking will probably work too.

In my opinion this whole modular approach doesn't produce great results.

Nice as this approach may be for Spartan, the new gunship model isn't really an improvement over the old one, and we would have been better off with a dedicated escort carrier hull instead of those drop-on parts for gunship and escort carrier.

And the same goes for the battleship / dreadnought combo; they should have gone for a dedicated battleship hull instead of this drop-on part to turn a dreadnought part into a (smallish) battleship.

I have come to the conclusion  that the OmniDyne range now effectively exists out of a corvette, a light cruiser, a cruiser, an (OOP) gunship, and a dreadnought.

Not enough models to built a versatile fleet with, and thus my OmniDyne fleet project went back into the same freezer it has already spend five plus years in :(

It will work if you take the time to hold it while it's drying. I did glue mine to its base and I added another peg behind the two main pegs. I'll post a picture. Because I didn't trust the glue to hold. The only other thing would be using widgets that force it to sit upright? I don't use widgets or anything and don't mind gluing my models to their pegs since my foam is deep enough to sit my models upright and carry them without worry.

Clearly I need to clean the base a bit. But yeah; This is how I got my Foundry to keep from wobbling.
