I love fluff like this.  Magnificent work.

The Manta isn't really a bomber. It's more of a dropship and super-heavy attack aircraft

Sweet! Really cool idea too!

very nicely done! I really like the way you did the furrow it dug as it skidded. I would imagine there might be a bigger debris field in it's wake though, as bits were sloughed off as it slid ;)

Thats true...it was done quickly with some inspiration, so it lacks details.

is this space footage from a shuttle or something you have drawn on a computer program?

The footage is from a mars survey....the crash path was added via photoshop.

I love this! As others have said, it's a perfect recon image, especially one that could be taken from a Remora drone.

That would serve as a great objective marker for Tau players

dude when players are getting handouts that are of game book page quality they must go crackers.

Thats probably the most positive feedback i ever got

Haven't you created any other of these?!

Sorry...no...creative block since a long time. I could do such stuff if i had ideas.

Neat. I did something like this once, I made "satellite Imagery" for a rpg I was DM'ing. I used a lot of aerial photographs of alaska and other areas to make an imaginary research facility in siberia. It was rather neat, but the game died off after a single session (2 people didn't show up at all and there was a Leeroy Jenkins in the group who got everyone killed deliberately.).

I´ll try to clean the manta crash site up....still not satisfied with the scratches....

But generally, players don´t always have aerials at hand, but as a handout it´s always a blast.
