    Great little ship. Love it :-)
  • Jeroen 4y

    If Alien Conquest was as epic as this I'd probably buy the whole series.
  • Pascal 4y

    Nicely done! Makes we wonder whether I really should try to enter that contest. ;)
  • ted @ndes 4y

    Thanks everyone.
    Pascal Thanks. I think everyone should try to build something for it. The head-to-head tournament brackets are so much fun, and there were plenty of upsets last year... and the creativity and diversity of the builds were outstanding. You never really knew how it will all go round by round.
  • 4estFeller 4y

    ted @ndes That's one of the main reasons I decided to enter. The prizes are awesome, but the tournament itself has also gotta be a ton of fun.
  • ted @ndes 4y

    4estFeller It definitely is... what makes it fun is that in the bracket stages, half of the people will get to have that "thrill of victory" feeling in at least one round of the tournament (unlike a "winner take all", one-round approach).
  • Pascal 4y

    ted @ndes I got busted in the first round last year. ;-) But that's not gonna stop me!
  • zrath 4y

    Oh man, what a great litle ship!
    So solid, so compact and so full of trickiness.
  • Zelda Wynn 4y

    A great entry you have built. Best of luck!
  • Simon Liu 4y

    Greeble between slopes = WIN.

    Also -the split mechanism is fantastic!
    I hope I don't have to go against you :P
  • unpoko77 4y

    Love the functionality of this ship. If this were a real set I would definitely get it. Great job! Hope I don't have to go against you either.
  • Lazer Blade 4y

    Super ship. Colors are great. :)

    Well, amazingly enough the Banshee is into the Sweet Sixteen! It originally had been eliminated in the round of 32 by "The Good Intentions"... however, according to the FBTB staff, that ship was ironically named (allegedly, that builder created numerous false accounts to vote and post praise for their ship... the accounts being registered to the same IP is what tipped FBTB off).

    For those interested, they reset the voting for the Banshee's bracket, but now there's less than 24 hours for any eligible voters to do so (...and if you prefer the other ship, that's cool too. Fair play.).
  • 4estFeller 3y

    ^Ah, I was wondering when someone was gonna try and pull a stunt like that. That's a pretty stupid thing to do, because after you get caught no one will have any respect for you. I was kinda surprised he knocked you out anyway, I like yours much better. I'll be sure to head over and re-vote!
  • ted @ndes 3y

    Yeah. I went back and read some of the posts of praise. If you do a forum search on "Good Intentions" you'll see three accounts that were all created around Nov. 13-14th, and the comments he posted (who knows how many more he had for voting). Pretty sad thing to do.
  • Simon Liu 3y

    That's ... disappointing. it was a decent build too.

    Well good luck on and congrats on moving on - dispute the adversity!
  • zrath 3y

    Yea! Siouxsie lives on!
  • ted @ndes 3y

    Fortune has smiled down on "The Banshee" yet again and it is into the Round of 8.

    ...Not expecting to get much further... but as we've seen, stranger things have happened.
  • D 3y

    Perfect.
