  1. That's just it, the Vigil is already a good comprise, but for some people unless it's a ISD it's not good enough. I agree 100% X infinity but then I'm not the one getting into s strop. You'll find a massive list of ships on one of my topics and the Vigil takes pride of place among them. Anyhoo, 400 meter Imperial Ship with a Star Destroyer look: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_II-class_frigate Can't find the other one...yet
  2. There is a happy compromise that I saw yesterday. Two of them. Measuring 400 meters in the canon they had the "spear tip" shape and looked like small Star Destroyers... ...give me some time and I'll seek them out.
  3. The day FFG release a Star Destroyer is the day that Empire players will demand a Death Star! Rebel players will complain that the Star Destroyer is too powerful. Empire players will complain the Star Destroyer isn't big and imposing enough. Moan, moan, whinge, whinge, and so the circle of dissatisfaction continues. Pulls on chute, flies backwards from the topic before he gets annoyed...

    How Likely...

    Star Wars: Dust Tactics: This is something I most definitely would be interested in. Battle for Hoth: My favourite part of all things Star Wars. Count me in if it has AT-AT and Snow Speeders.
  5. Want a Star Destroyer? Roll up your sleeves, get out your tools and take some tips from here: http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/104459-600-point-2v2-defend-the-star-destroyer-game/
  6. Do what you want, I want tell anyone I want to play a 1500 point game sometime. Just for fun. I think that would be called a career. Anyone want to offer me the job? Imagine being payed to play X-Wing...sweet!
  7. Forget Avenger Ties! This is a REAL Tai Avenger...
  8. No... ...that is just fan induced silliness. Time to worry is when you paint the car in the colours of an X-Wing, stick an R2 on the top and four wings on the sides. Whenever you go for a drive, you put on a Rebel Flight Suit. That's the time to seek help for X-Wing addiction.
  9. 21. You make Tie Fighter noises while driving at high speed down a road, making pow pow noises at cars getting in your way. EDIT: they have friends in the car at the time; that would be worse! 22. You switch off the SatNav and trust in the force to get you to your destination Admittedly that would annoy the wife more
  10. search your feelings, you know it to be true Is he called Luke?
  11. Do what you want, I wont tell anyone I want to play a 1500 point game sometime. Just for fun.
  12. Found here, http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/x-wing/support/X-Wing-Huge-Ship-Rules.pdf first page, 2nd paragraph I'm sure two friends having a friendly game can always ignore that rule if they wanted to.
  13. I was just thinking about this very idea last night. But I named it "Star Wars: Fleet Wing" Our current HUGE ship, CR-90, would be a humble little ship in such a game where it would probably be about as long as an A-Wing. With other ships scaling up from there. The stars of X-Wing, the starfighters, would be little more than tokens or tiny little ships which would come five to a small base. I've already posted my opinions on possible huge ships. My guess is that the biggest ship will be twice the size of a CR-90, which a Star Destroyer is not...it's much bigger. As for the invincibility of Star Destroyers, I have piloted an X-Wing and caused significant damage to many. Granted I was playing Battlefront II, but you take down the shields, destroy the turrets, engines, life support and you've got one dead Star Destroyer. Was Much easier in a Y-Wing though. Only time I didn't use this strategy was when I landed in the hanger and set about sabotaging it from the inside.
  14. I've seen it. I love it. I want more episodes of it. Best Star Wars outside of the movies I've seen so far. Though TROOPS was hilarious. The only way I.M.P.S. could be better is if it actually made it into a TV series, then DVD collections and then onto my shelf... ...and a T-Shirt
  15. Just to help put it in respective... A ISD at the same scale of the fighters would be 19feet long. Even if you had it at the same scale as the CR-90 it would still be around 10ft long. A VSD would be between 12 and 6 foot long. My point exactly. I was just too lazy to do the maths. Thank you
  16. I didn't add it because it didn't specify a size. Only those with a size are listed. But there is a link to wookieepedia where the Escort Carrier can be found.
  17. This is a topic that I've been getting a little frustrated with. People seem to want a Star Destroyer in X-Wing and, as many have consistently stated, something that big cannot reasonably be added to this game. Too big: if scaled reasonably it would still be MASSIVE and would be a gaming board in it's own right. Even if it was made into a model the price would be such that few, if anyone, could actually afford it. FFG would lose money making models. Too small: if made to be playable and not too expensive the Star Destroyer would be too small and fans would be outraged to the point where nobody would buy it. FFG would lose money making models. What follows is a list of all the ships I could find which could be reasonably added to the game without upsetting any but the worst of whiners. It is my belief that anything listed as being 300 meters, twice the size of Tantive IV, or less wouldn't be too much to ask for: Munifex-Class Light Cruiser 300 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Munifex-class_light_cruiser Star Galleon-Class Frigate 300 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Galleon-class_frigate Pelta-Class Frigate 282.24 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Pelta-class_frigate Vigil-Class Corvette 255 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Vigil-class_corvette Lancer-Class Frigate 250 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lancer-class_frigate Tartan-Class Patrol Cruiser 250 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Tartan-class_patrol_cruiser Bayonet-Class Light Cruiser 200 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Bayonet-class_light_cruiser No image means FFG can design whatever they want...with permission Light Corvette aka Imperial Customs Corvette 180 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Light_corvette Action IV Transport 125 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Action_VI_transport IPV-1 System Patrol Craft 120 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/IPV-1_System_Patrol_Craft Warlord Dropship 110 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Warlord_Dropship No image for this allows FFG some freedom...with permission Imperial Armoured Transport 50 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Imperial_armored_transport Guardian-Class Light Cruiser 42 meters http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Guardian-class_light_cruiser I hope this list goes some way to reassuring the Empire players that just because the Rebels have a couple of HUGE ships doesn't mean they don't have any options for future releases. It is by no means every choice, just the ones I picked out. To find out more ships, here is a link to the page I used: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Galactic_Empire_starship_classes
  18. Exactly! I found a few good choices. Chief among them the Vigil Class and the Customs Corvette
  19. I can see ships up to 300 meters being made into models eventually. Though the Rebellion, and other groups, have plenty of small HUGE ships the Empire has few as small as the CR-90. Victory being 900 meters would require a model six times bigger than the CR-90.

    This is a thing.

    I loved Gremlins as a boy. Goonies too. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Dune, Krull and Beastmaster. Not forgetting the Star Trek movies. Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock were my favourites. Though I believe I cried when Spock died..."I am and always will be your friend"...sniff. Didn't adversely effect me at all...Admittedly that's open to debate.
  21. CR-90 Yes GR-75 No But like all my intended X-Wing purchases, the CR-90 will be used in games of EotE.
  22. Brace yourself my friend, some may react annoyed to your choice of topic title. Fortunately I knew what you meant. EDIT: I like the thoughts of the YV-666. It looks odd, but that's why I like it. I really, really, really want the Outrider though. Think it looks cool and would be a good addition to my planned EotE fleet.
