Hell, the Star Destroyers and Mon Cal cruisers might be pulling the trailers...

 

I can just see a 60ft super-jumbo RV retrofitted to look like the Executor...

 

... and it still wouldn't be at the correct scale! That would still only be 1039:1!

I'd be so afraid of things blowing away in the wind if you played this outside. So much cardboard and paper in this game, not to mention the minis are pretty light...

 

That said, I'm sure there has to be a point where they draw the line for epic ships. They already scaled down the Blockade Runner and the Transport from 1/270, so they would obviously do the same for other ships. Perhaps the Victory Star Destroyer would be somewhat more realistic as opposed to an Imperial Class? It's still six times longer than the CR90, but still something we can conceivably put on the gaming table every once in a blue moon.

I really can't see any of the med-large capital ships making in into x-wing. As stated even the Vic is 6 times bigger then the CR90. That would put it at about 6 ft. Even if they shrink it down more I really can't see it being anywhere close to cost worthy.

 

However the Carrak and the Lancer I could see making it to the table.

I think that with the CR-90 FFG are pushing what can fit in the X-wing game - something they've implicitly conceded by revising the scale.

 

Given what people are doing with the system behind X-wing at the moment (Attack Wing, Sails of Glory) I really wouldn't be surprised if we got a capital ships game (Star Wars: Star Destroyer) with ships the size of the Nebulon B Frigate scaled to small ships, ISDs/Mon Cals as 'large' ships and the Executor/SSD scaled to match the CR-90 size in X-wing. That would be pretty Epic! (sorry)

I could see a roll out mat with a 6 foot victory class star destroyer...

always the same discussion. I wrote last year before wave 3 was announced that the german distributor and translator hinted that falcon and slave I won't be the largest ships and the new ships won't be a part of the wave 3. they will have an exclusive release. Many people in this forum didn't believe and answered x-wing will always be a small and medium ship game.

Well they were totally wrong.

Now 1 year later we see the first big ships coming. FFG hinted in an interview that they had to find a relative scale ( feels good scale) in which they can release many more big ships. ( like star destroyers and the executor).

The german source already hinted some weeks ago that many huge ships are coming.
I'm pretty sure we see the ISD coming next in a relative scale.
