I wouldn't mind having one myself. Does it come with stands, Mel?

Oh, I'm not denying that the Imperial Gozanti doesn't look great as well, Joe.  I just don't think it really "fits" the typical Empire aesthetic (go big or go home), that's all. 

 

Yeah we do need that big ole hunk of IMP-PIE!

Good question - Mel does have stands in his store, but I think the models are also designed to fit the standard FFG bases & large bases - certainly the couple of prints I've picked up from Mel's Shapeways store work fine with the FFG stands.

 

The Gozzy is obviously a little bit bigger though, not sure if it would work with the large ship pegs or if it would need the Epic stands...


...are those your dice on the floor?

This one doesnt. The only ones that include stands are the Marauder Corvette, Interceptor Frigate and both Nebulon B Frigates. The rest of the ship need to have separate stands (in case you want to buy them in a worse material or if you already have plenty)

To further spur Imperial huge ship talk, here's a cutter-class vessel, the Intractible.

I vote that small Imp ships have similar names, like Unreasonable, Inarguable, Unanswerable, Inexcusable and Complete D***.

(Inspired by those LITTLE Imperial ship names.)

 

Now I want to run an Edge of the Empire / "Age of EMPIRE" campaign where the PCs are all Imperials, after the fashion of "Troops" or "Imps."  As in, they're up against generally lawless scum, and occasionally stumbling across domestic incidents rather than serving under a cackling, gleefully-evil Sith type and having to commit casual genocide or whatnot, and their run-ins with the occasional Rebels (or "Rebel wannabes") would be against despicable murder-hobo send-ups with unlikely names that sound like they've been picked by really cheesy roleplayers ... like, I don't know, "Marc Lightsparkle" or "Princess-Duchess-Elect Maria Lydia Starbuck Rose," or the obnoxious droids "QT-P0" and "L3-3T."

 

And then their base ship is ... the Inconceivable.  Then count how many seconds until the first time a player says some variation on, "You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means."  Bonus points for breaking character by putting on a fake accent.

Seriously, though, I like that "cutter" design, and how the "bridge" extends back like that.  Are those docking rings on the back section?  I wonder how large that model would be in "epic" scale.

I would love to get in a game loosely based on the IMPS vids.. lol...
I think you're right about the Docking rings.. that ship looks like it would be a good scale for the 270 or 400 scale..

Small compliment of TIEs and a couple drop ships, some AT-STs... could be a hoot to get that on the table and RP out a session..

More pictures of the Nebulon B.  This time with the custom stand put together by my friend Silent Jim. The man is a genius when it comes to scratch-building.  The Base is brass rod, wood disks and acrylic sheet.  The attachment points on the model slide into the brass rod for a snug fit.

She is coming along quite nicely, and is large enough for the Rebel Transport to fly under, even with the stand lowered to give her a lower center of gravity, and make her more stable,  I suspect the Tantive IV will fit under as well, but didn't have it with me to confirm.
