According to Wookiepedia AND Jedipedia the ship is 20m long.
 

 

Did we figure out the Falcon's length yet?

I have been looking up Star Blazers ship models...so I have not done a full search on our length discrepancy...Ha!

 

THE Rodent will know.

^_^

Say Ratt how big is the Falcon?

I think I would rather have a Skipray... the IG-2000 looks a bit icky, and not terribly Star Wars.

 

I quiet like the look of Dengar's ship, the Punishing One. That's around the 20 metre mark and looks quiet 'Star Wars-y'. 

 

On the topic of IG-88, it would be quiet cool to run a 4x IG-2000 fleet, each one piloted by a different IG-88 droid!  :D

According to Starwars.com it's 34.75m long. The shorter value comes from a WEG RPG book. I'd say that given FFG's dedication to keeping things to scale, and comparing it to the Firespray, the 34.75m lenth seems correct.

Cool then. The reason I am wanting to be sure of this is because I have been using the actual FFG Model to compare with other fancy models I want to add to the game world, like my super Pirates and the micro machines version of the I.G. 2000 we have been talking about here.

How about this stats for the IG-2000:

 

Large Base

 

Attack: 2 (forward arc only)

Defence: 2 (i think a 3 is too high for a large ship)

Hull: 4

Shields: 6

 

Slots: Cannon, System Upgrade, System Upgrade, Droid

Actions: TL, evade, BR

 

No red manoeuvres on the dial, sharp turns and K-Turns are white

...

more to come


                 Sir, rebel transports sighted \                              / Affirmative.                                                           

   (-o-)  (-o-)    (-o-o-)     (-o-o-)     (-o-o-)     (-o-o-)    (-o-)  (-o-) 

 Excellent! Gamma wing, prepare for torpedo run. We'll provide cover.

Large Base


At 20m it could go on either one. The HWK-290 is 16.5m, and it's on the small base, but maybe that's the biggest ship you want to put on one.

What would be the difference between he four IG88 models, as far as the game goes?

 

 

How about just reading post #20

 

Yup.  saw that.  I'm interested in other people's ideas that might be tailored to the abilities of droid pilots.

Wookie says that the Lambda shuttle is 20m long.  So, maybe a big base?

My little house rule is to put any ship that is 2.5 inches or longer on a big base. It looks right to me. So the Hawk is the largest ship to go on a small base, as of this post. I have several ideas for Medium ships so I got this issue squared away neat in my head about a month ago, after I started writing up my Pirate fleet list.

There really does need to be a Pirate or Black Sun faction. I want to see a Star Viper pretty bad.

Yep I definitely want to see a Pirate Faction. I think you could release something like a pirate Gozanti Cruiser, with varient cards for some of the ships, like the Firespray, HWK etc, and then release maybe a Die-Wing and one of the Hutt fighters.. And there you go.. a playable faction.
