What's coming next? (Huge Ship Edition)

Recommended Posts

Still holding out for the Sorosuub 3000  Luxury Yacht.  Because Twi'Lek Dancers and Zero G Swimming Pool would be awesome upgrade cards.

However...

  • Consular-class Republic Cruiser
  • J-Type 327 Nubian Starship
  • CSS-1 Corellian Star Shuttle

That's the Republic on the board, any suggestions for the Seperatists?

Scum has already an armed originally civilian ship, and is a faction which also has Mercenarys and powerful syndicates. So personally I am all in for this dedicated military big bad one

Crusader Class Corvette.

Maybe something a bit smaller and more in line with the dimensions of a CR-90 or Imp Raider?

Certainly doesn't look wider than it is long...

...and even if it was, a ship that' wider than it is long might make an interesting new design for huge ship play; can you imagine moving a ship where the bases were side by side instead of one in front/ one at back??

Ships with different personalities are needed. I concur, those two come to mind:

  • The Crusader Class Corvette is a great choice and needed for the scums. It is a true war machine that could dominate.
  • The Consular is also a great choice if it comes with A Radiant VII config (No weapon - diplomatic craft) yet with the possibility to add all sorts of weapon and equipment so that a clone war refit can be created.

There are not that many corvettes size ships left in SW universe that are exciting to look at. FFG needs to get in discussion with the folks at Lucas and create a new concept like they did with the Raider. The Separatist could use one!

Hmmm, forgot about that one.  But yeah, there's no reason why it couldn't work as a Huge ship really.  Should really give the side by side bases a field test and see just how awkward it's movement could beQ

It's smaller brother, the J-Type Star Skiff could even make it into standard play...

With the N-1 already in the game, Naboo's Royal Navy deserves a flagship!

I'm all for a wide huge ship

Wouldn't be that hard to implement, and would be sick as a carrier, with multiple launch points

I never saw the naboo ships as having hard points for launching things..

The larger flying wing is supposed to have charging ports for the N-1s to plug their tails into somewhere in the barge's wings.

Yeah, the J-Type Diplomatic Barge is supposed to have a complement of four N1's as escorts, which would be externally docked.  A good chance for another Huge ship with docking clamps maybe?

Docking Clamps are a lot of fun on the Gozanti, and externally docked ships look great on the table as well.  I'd be all for more ships with Clamps *cough* Nebulon *cough* B *cough* Frigate...

Didn't someone already do one, fan made that is?

There is (or at least was) an excellent set of files on Thingiverse that I printed off. However, that leaves the question of stats and slots.

How's about make a Lancer corvette?

This?

Do you mean shrink it down? (thing is 250m long, most of a C-ROC's length tall and 3/4 a C-ROC's length wide)

Or?

That's over twice the length of a CR-90 and a Raider corvette.

To be fair, the arrival of the Super Star Destroyer in Armada has kind of opened the door for larger size ships in X-Wing as well.  If the demand is there for more ships - and bigger ships - then there's also the means to provide them.

Personally, I still want to see the Nebulon B at the CR-90/Raider's sliding scale.
