Just a suggestion with everyone looking for something that fits the intended spot of imperial huge ship in available EU ships. Most logical choice would be the assassin corvette or just an imperial release of the CR90 with imperial cards but seeing the imperial wedge on the board does sound good.

Regrettably, due to the Assassin's pedigree from an early 90s video game, the visuals are somewhat challenged. That thing is just too boxy.

On the other hand, there is some better art out there, ie.:

But I find an Imperial version of the CEC corvette a bit of a cop out, if FFG were to go that route. I'm confident that they'll come up with something more compelling.

It's going to be the Vigil.

 

It went from Fanom to Canon to the Age of Rebellion rulebook.

 

I'm willing to wager on it.

It's been canon according to LFL since the Essential Guide to Warfare was published in 2012, so Age of Rebellion doesn't actually change anything. (Although the new book does at least arguably rescue it from Legends status, so there's that.)

But if I were you, I'd keep that wager small. Even in a sliding scale, it would be enormous and expensive, and at least the existing art makes its width-to-length ratio pretty large--much larger than the Corvette or Transport, and possibly large enough to create stability problems on the tabletop.

The response I expect when FFG finally makes their announcement and none of these pet favorites are included:

 

 

Or when they find out it's not the Vigil:

You know exactly what I mean. You can read.

As for the ship that I do not want to see from FFG, I knew you would like it...

It is a well done model.

That's gorgeous. But... what is it? Far too big for a Deff Kopta, too small of a base for a fighta-bomba.. Still, I want to own it.  :ph34r:

I feel bad for anatomy students if you need to have one in your mouth before you can tell what it looks like.

Uh... uh... Gozanti as the transport stand in, Customs Corvette as the biggy.

 

What hasn't been brought up yet is: Epic allows 5 "Epic Points," with the transport being 2 and the corvette 3. I have this weird feeling the Empire's first wave will be 1 and 4EP ships. (Though if this were an option I can't imagine what would come in at 1 if the transport is 2). This seems to fit the Imperial Doctrine of "swarm" or "super massive mega death ray."

They don't produce an Imperial huge.

 

What if the Decimator is all we're going to get?

Buy two (you will need it for the cards anyway) and glue them together

Actually im wondering if i should bother making my Assassin Corvette variant. If i think about it then it seems to me like a good choice for FFG and i dont want to end up having to remove it right after i make it like i had to do with my Defender and Phantom *L*
 It would be compaible with the Corellian Corvette power wise. They already have a good chunk of the design done just by doing the Tantive and it really is one of the only Imperial ships that fits in the scale.

Yes the Vigil would be groovy but it is also a lot bigger than the Corvette, and the wedge would take up a lot of space. The Carrack and Lancer at 350 and 250 mtrs would also be too big unless they want to introduce yet another scale into the game. The only other ship that springs to mind easily is the DP20 which would fit in the scale but is just not a very interesting ship (personal opinion)
