can someone post pictures because I have no clue which of these ships is which

In order of appearance in the PT with listed size.

J-type 327 (Episode 1, Huge base due to 76 meter length)

latest?cb=20161019065403

J-type diplomatic barge (Opening segment of Episode 2, Padme was flying escort in an N-1, this is what was blown up, Huge base due to 90+ meter wingspan, honestly I doubt it'll be added to X-Wing because of this)

latest?cb=20091201140703

H-Type Nubian Yacht (Episode 2, Padme and Anakin went to Tatooine and Geonosis in it, Large base since just under 48 meters long, allot narrower then it is long)

latest?cb=20071216070919

J-type star skiff (Episode 3, Padme went to Mustifar in it, Obi stowed away and later used it to transport her to the remote medical facility where she died, barely Large base due to 49m wing span)

Naboo Royal Starship. The J-type 327 Nubian Starship from Episode I that gave birth to R2-D2, which at 76 meters long would most likely be an Epic-sized ship:

Naboo Royal Cruiser. If that's not confusing enough, whoever was in charge of Star Wars ship designations decided to call this one the J-type Diplomatic Barge. This is the thing that got blown up at the beginning of Episode II, and is also probably epic in scale:

The fly af H-type Nubian Yacht, also from Episode II, which could easily be a large-base ship (it's only slightly longer than a VCX-100):

For Episode III we're back to yet another J-type, this time a Star Skiff. This one doesn't have an official Star Wars databank entry, so... ??? At any rate, it's wider than the H-type is long, but still checks in under 50 meters, so more likely to be scaled down to fit a large base than scaled up to fit Epic:

The J type barge is definitely epic, one of its features is those four tubes on the wings, which can dock the rear finial of an N1 to support its wingmates in long distance hyperjumps.  So it's like, 6 N-1s wide at least, which makes it questionable for large base at best.


I do wonder whether with the introduction of the CW factions we're going to see a wide base for epic, because so many of the Naboo ships in particular are wide rather than long.

I would love to see either of the "large" ships. Do we have a canon source saying either have weapons?

The one that got exploded in Ep II, IIRC had ways to resupply the N-1 escorts. Seems like a really fun mechanic to add to it for Epic, giving the N1-s a sort of mothership that could top up shields or torpedo charges. Also, I think for Epic it needs a sideways long base instead of a the type we've seen for most epic ships.

They'd probably just make the droids do it.

Some quick Googling tells me that the H-type was an unarmed yacht. There aren't readily available canon sources for the Skiff (it doesn't even seem to have an entry in the Star Wars Databank) but Wookiepedia says it was armed and even carried a gunner.

FFG put a gun on Escape Craft and now even the Resistance cockpit, so...

I think they realized that in a dogfighting game, ships without guns don't really have a place.

2-primary without mods is pretty poor firepower anyway (c.f. AP-5, L3-37, et al)

These things are going to look nice for all of two minutes. Then they'll start getting covered in fingerprints and we'll realize that chrome is a terrible paint choice for a miniature.
