Sure when I make huge ship threads, I pour in hours into researching vessels and finding high quality images, and maybe get 17 posts over a week. Apparently all I need is a flashy title, 2 pictures, and a few sentences to become a hit on the forums. What was I thinking!?!

The lancer would be nice, but it us way too big if I remember correctly. About twice the size of the CR-90...it would be unplayable because of it's size...

Tie Fighter is the fer-de-lance of the Empire and there is currently more Interceptor pilot than Tie Fighter. I'm sure they can come up wih something. Also, not every players is interested in Epic play so, by not making it a must buy, you keep those players happy. 

I love that i know what a fer-de-lance is (both meanings) without having to look it up. Thank you, Amazon Trail.

Those two OP ships are what I've been thinking for a while now as well.

I agree that the Gozanti is pretty likely based on its appearance in Rebels, and the timeframe for some cross-promotion on that might be right.  The vigil though, as others have said, is kind of out there.

If one of the Imp Huge ships isn't one of the many triangular ships, I'll be shocked.

But I wasn't sure if it was known in english or just a french designation.

I'm a french native player so sometimes, some expressions or meanings might be lost in translation. I mean no disrespect.

Well, the base set come with one X-Wing and 2 Tie Fighter. Since the transport come with an X-Wing and the Gozanti is shown with 2 Tie, you just add 1+1. ;P

There's already so many TIE pilots, I don't even know what pilots/abilities they could possibly add.
Maybe a tie advanced. New upgrades /pilots

The Huge ships are on a relative scale, not an absolute scale. So it would be possible to have it be roughly the same size as the CR-90.

Look at Bolda's and MF'ers Huge Impie ships, they are about right for our Epic Games.

I am going to get my wretched self back to work on mine too, but not until I see what our bad ass FFG boys are doing this year.

I don't mind what they give us but to appease the star destroyer and needs to be iconic fan base what ever it is has to be triangle shaped.

I'd say both Vigil and Gozanti are pretty good guesses for the reason no one mentioned yet - they're both featured in Age of Rebellion beta :P

Probably this, with an x2 title that addresses the Advanced's shortcomings.

Calling it myself:

 

Imperial GR-75 Equivalent:

 

500px-BFF1BulkFreighter-TCG.jpg

 

Meet the BFF-1 Bulk Freighter, a stalwart of the Imperial supply lines and target of opportunity for X-Wing (video game) players everywhere.

 

See those 4 Class-A Cargo Containers it's carrying?  They will be detachable, and mountable on  individual flight stands to use as obstacles / objectives / whatever...

 

And the CR-90 equivalent?

Oh yes.  You know it.

Well the neb b is an imperial ship, the rebels got them when people defected to their side.

 

So you could release it with crew for both factions.
