TIE Bastador

Is that a hatch for loading ammunition for the ventral launchers, behind the foremost ‘greebly bit’? the hatch-looking thing with a hinge and two black bars? Could it also double as a maintenance access hatch?

Just wondering how you shaded your models and which softwares you use (specially for the texturing)
Thanks love your work!

Man, I always love the Scimitar style cockpit. Gives wider field of view for the pilot! As for names…. TIE Eviscerator
Edit: oh! I noticed you changed the arrangement of the viewport for the bottom left and right, neat!

How about TIE Demolisher? Unless that’s already been used.

Or better yet TIE Calamity or TIE Chaos.

How about Backfire? The TIE/Bf Backfire Advanced Bomber?

Or is that too 1970’s cold war-esque?

Either way, whatever you decide to name it… I’ll love it anyway. 😉

Everything I could think of that hasn’t already been mentioned just sounded subpar for a TIE name; Bruiser, Brawler & Barrister. What about Despoiler?

Is Bombard or Bombardier already taken? Fits the absurd ordnance load…

Behemoth? More for a warship though….

Aft wing-hub thruster nozzles, entry ramp, forward-facing missile tubes & dual light lasers to round off this thing’s already-wicked firepower. Plus, those extra cockpit-window cutouts are quite neat. Would said tubes be packing anti-capital warheads or just a couple dozen extra defensive CMs?

This puppy’s oversized ordnance load makes me think of the good old Douglas A-3 Skywarrior, or perhaps the F-105. All that seems to be left is the name.

Bradshaw already submitted Leveler, so can I nominate TIE Liquidator or TIE Extinguisher?

All solid suggestions, though ‘Liquidator’ flows best in my book. I keep failing to surmise any ‘B’-name options besides ‘Battery’ or ‘Bludgeon’.

Bellicose, Belligerent, Berserker, Bully, Battering Ram, and Bad News were about all I could add to that.

Okay, that last one was a little silly, but fitting based on the number of tubes.

Berserker *almost* feels right, though it might fit a super-fast design better.

I could think it would be either TIE Smasher, Breaker, Cracker, Crasher or Shatterer. Although it would most likely that Fractal would still called it Advanced TIE Bomber as the final name.
Speaking of Beserker Gork there is a incomplete TIE variant (I hope Fractal didn’t forgot about it) that would fit the bill which is this: http://fractalsponge.net/?p=2043
Fractal design it as gun heavy no missiles.

Welp I take back of what I said about Fractal keeping the Advanced TIE Bomber as the final name as he is giving a name.
As for the name I say either Breaker or Demolisher but I feel like leaning more to the latter.

Ah, that Phantom-style-sans-cloak design with the nifty Scimitar-style cockpit. Suppose that name *might* work if the wingtip cannons were heavy enough.

Yep I see it work as well and I hope Fractal does that sooner or later.
