I wanted another playset template, building on the experience I had gained on the last two, but wanted something different. So I decided to tackle the secret Rebel Base on Yavin IV.
Once again this is built from chipboard, with pieces that slot together and come back apart for easy flatpacking. The graphics printed on the board are my own design, drawn up in Photoshop.
Features this time around include five environments for play (Tactical Room, Throne Room (with pop-up stage,) Hangar Bay, Ops Center, and Rooftop) and a Guard Tower. The Ops Center features movable tactical plot screens and a big holotank table. There are doors between the rooms on the bottom level.
This one was a lot of fun to design and create. The Death Star and Cloud City I had floorplans for dating back probably ten years, they were just a matter of doing it finally. This one was all-new, except for the graphics for the holotank and the big video screen (those I had made in '08 for my Rebellion shelf display.) I definitely wanted to do a 180 from the others at every possible opportunity. Thus, tall profile, hard angles instead of curves, only 3 walls, large open second level...and I really enjoyed being able to pull off the guard tower as a part of the set.
As always, comments are appreciated very much. Thanks for looking!
