Pictures of the Tantive IV and GR75 Rebel Transport

Recommended Posts

FFG has the models in a display case at the Event Center.  I took some pics:

They look very good.  On the shelf below the wave 1, 2 and 3 miniatures are all lined up.  Together they look great.  The scale may be slightly different, but it does not really matter, the capital ships look appropriately huge.  The detail is amazing.  It feels right.  If they took pre-orders now, I would order one of each.

Yes, I agree that these will be great additions to the game.  Thanks, Hexis, for the great photos.

 

One thing I hadn't noticed before is it appears that all of the turrets on the Tantive IV move.  Not just the large ones on the top and bottom.

 

Another is that it truly does appear that the Transport is of the unarmed variety.  That just means more work for the escort.  :)

Is it just me, or is anyone already feeling like wave 3 has been out for 3 months and the big ships are on the boat.  I kinda feel FFG is over advertising these ships to the point we are burned out by the time they arrive.

You know, you got a point there. But there is ONE major advantage to the over advertising.

 

We get to speculate on all the juicy details of play with our current units and see how the stuff might work, then finally when it releases, we DO see how it works..!

 

It's pretty cool that way. They've also got us on the hook for more and more and more, and I gotta' say, their way of doing it is pretty smart aside from the natural drawback of, "RELEASE IT ALREADY!" and of course, "Okay yeah we know how it works."
