    Lord Tareq got a reaction from ninclouse2000 in Solo trailer. What did you think?   
    I must say I really like the catchy themesong they use in the trailer.

    It looks oversized yes. For me the Ton-Falk escort carrier will always remain the Imperial carrier though, so I'll never buy this model as I associate it too much with the Rebellion.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I love the aesthetics. Enough with the ‘imperial ships need to look triangular’ design philosophy already ?
    Doubt we ever see it in armada as we have the Quasar already and I doubt they’d introduce a second imperial carrier, but I’m 100% in favor of using mel’s Ton Falk model as the Quasar.

    I quite like the "realistic" look more than any "everything imperial has to be a wedge, no matter who build and designed it, if its small put TIE-Wings on it"

    I think they should have white attack dice both melee and ranged, and no defense dice.
    They also didn’t appear to be especially brave, other than fighting the Imps with sticks and slings in the first place. Multiple scenes have them fleeing in terror.
    They need to be really cheap and in larger units to compensate. Imho they should be a troop option, so people who like that can create a thematic Ewok army. Support could be more elite ewok units like trappers.

    Yes war is an excellent catalyst for technological progress. Want to go to Mars? Start WW3 and we can go within a decade (those that survive that is). Now the Empire can essentially be compared to the US in the period post '45 up to the early 50's, while the Republic could then be compared to the US in the early 40's up to '45. I think technology wise the difference between the Republic at the end of the Clone Wars vs the Empire isn't that great, just a couple of improved designs that were never finished in time for the Clone Wars. But if you were to compare early Clone Wars Republic vs Empire than the difference would be very notable as the Empire has incorporated the lessons learned during the years of warfare in their designs.
    I would like to see Clone Wars era ships eventually as part of the existing factions. The prequels may have been utter crap, but the ship designs were quite good.

    I think the prequels are being re-evaluated and becoming more popular since The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi have gotten some backlash. The prequel-haters complained about Anakin being whiny but he was only 19 and Kylo was 31 and every bit as much of a whiny emo brat. I would expect a teenager to be whiny but a guy in his 30s should be above throwing a temper tantrum. The same goes for Jar Jar's slapstick comedy. The Last Jedi did much of the same slapstick and undermined serious moments like Luke receiving his old lightsaber and meeting Leia for the first time in more than a decade. That's just the tip of the iceberg. The Rebels TV show is a complete mess. The Imperials can't even do background checks for their TIE Defender factory. Even McDonald's does background checks. Thrawn was too dumb to realize that his Star Destroyer has a tractor beam that could have stopped General Sato's ship, Phoenix Home, in the Iron Squadron episode. Instead Thrawn just called to say goodbye. That same General became a kamikaze at the end of season 3 so taking him captive would have prevented that. Thrawn also had such a short attention span that he couldn't keep up an orbital bombardment for more than a few minutes. The prequels have gotten quite a bit of hate over the years but at least they had competent Separatists who locked their doors and followed basic military protocol like encrypting messages and doing background checks to see if someone working at their factory is on the Empires Top 10 most wanted list.

    What they used on the Chimaera is more akin to a multi headed hydra though.
