Looks great. Does it have the same lack of shields and hyperdrive of most TIEs? Or is it slightly better since it carries passengers?
Mayyybe shields, yeah. I think it's reasonable to think it could have shields and life support, since it carries officers. I'd say no hyperdrive though, and no weapons, just meant for flying between imperial stuff and being able to dock in the same facilities that could facilitate TIE fighters. I think if you're making an interstellar or planetary trip you'd take a lambda shuttle, which would have better shielding, weapons, good hyperdrive, and more spacious accommodations.
In other imperial news, you may remember many months ago I posted a WIP stormtrooper in a hallway. I've just recently returned to the helmet, and I'm close to finishing it, as a nice subd model (I'll also bake down a super low poly version). I still have to fix some non-ideal topology in these areas that are causing some bad smoothing, and to finish some other areas like the chin stuff, but, almost done.
It's mostly based on the look of the ANH stunt helmets, but kind of symmetrized and idealized, and eyeballed, not 1000% accurate. But I think it will feel more like ANH than the scanned RotJ helmets that were used in Battlefront, or the Rogue One helmets whose details are a little sharp/techy for my tastes. They made things look like separate pieces in a way that looks more technologically functional, but I kinda prefer the old look just because it's a classic.
