That looks great !! I'm still trying to find a decent 3d-printable version, but all those I've tried I just can't get to work with my printer...looks like I may have to buy one from eBay Russia after all...if FFG do bring one out, I assume it'll be another year at least  :(

so for the second scum epic ship, considering the dark gray of both Imperial Epic ships,

and the very pale grey of both Rebel Epic ships, it's a very good bet that it will also be a tan color...

I may be going a bit overboard with the red stripping.

Apparently you're not the only one liking this paint scheme.

Well when you do as much painting as he does I'd guess you get around to every style, but I like the FEDEX one the best.

It doesn't look as vivid, it looks more like the used a plastic that is that color, not actual paint. 

I'm glad to know all three titles now, but that Insatiable Worrt dropping the overall energy to three feels like a trap. 

Supercharged power cells sets an interesting precedent. 

And Heavy Laser Turret kind of answers the question of huge ships ever using anything but non-ordnance hardpoints.

Oh wow really can't wait for scum epic to take off. Would prefer the first epic to be more like the corvette or raider since I have an awesome model ordered to proxies out to feel the place, but beggers can't be choices and I will welcome the C-Roc with open arms all the same.

Let me ask if in casual epic if I was to use a corvette for scum are there any upgrades that would be broken on it with scum crew I should be aware of?

Zuckuss and Dengar crew most likely.

I think we've reached a general consensus that Zuckus Is OK on a C-ROC, since they only have 1 shot/round ...

...but it seems hewould be somewhat more daunting on a multi-shot platform.

You know if you where ever bored you could do a custom epic fore and aft card for me with those stats with this image. Ordered the model of this ship and going to proxies it as a scum epic.

hsgs6709inset1-lg.jpg Have to flip the image I guess, its the Arcadia from Captain Harlock's :)

I know the ship as I own a copy of the 2013 movie, but to do a card for it I would want to give it its own stats, using actual specs. 

Well that was easier than I thought it would be.

Dimensions: lenght: 1077m, width: 312m, height: 355m

**** bigger then I thought lol.

Just always loved the design saw the movie and some of the anime. The model I order is around 13/14 inches so was going to use it as a larger scum epic in casual games. A smaller one 5/6 inches would fit in Armada as well lol. Luckily thius area is laid back and more casual focus when they do play

http://www.cornponeflicks.org/harlock/pirateships.html this list the green version as 400 meters long whiuch I think is more accurate since it was comparable in size to the Yamato. The 1077m version I think is from the new movie remake

I think this is going to be my favorite Epic ship, it looks like Jabba belongs on it more than the Star Jewel. Probably the resemblance to this:

The whole article is on Jabba, shame it wasn't more than a listing of illicit upgrades.

https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2017/3/27/jabba-the-hutt/

Yeah, i don't see Jabba being used for much in either standard or Epic. Maybe more so in epic if you are running a double C-roc list as Epic gives you one more transportation option so you don't have to blow points on a YV-666. Shame that the lancer is only 1 <crew> slot. Hey FFG could we get an errata to the title for that? Add a <crew> slot for his greatness Jabba the Hutt.

Still the biggest issue is that he is really only good with a swarm so you can get as many illicit doubles as you can. Yeah I guess a cloak with a failsafe isn't too bad but ever since the decloak nerf cloaking actions is like the mobile firing arc action, you would rather do something else. Also there are now a lot of other mobility options out there that stops you from attacking. SLAM for example.

Well the list keeps growing. Maybe there will be another one that comes with the C-ROC that will be best of all. 

Illicit  Upgrade 

 

 

 

 Squad Points

Yeah but Jabba only works with Scum, so it made scum illicits slightly more potent than rebel illicits. But honestly there could be a better way of upgrading a card. Jabb's design seems rather uninspiring as being a universal EM for illicits. Missed opportunity but then again with all the Palp hate that FFG had decided to nerf, I guess they had to drop innovation and go with a safer option even if it results in a over costed meh card that will never see competitive play.
