I saw this:



And I was like, "Goodbye money, it was nice while it lasted."

Doesn't look like it's to scale though, from memory the Nebulon B Frigate is supposed to be quite larger than the Corellian Frigate. Those fighters are also way too big. It still looks boss.

But neither was Battlefleet Gothic. This looks awesome though and will fly off the shelves when it's released

If you want scale, the Star Destroyer should be about the size of the box, compared to the Corellian Corvette, since in Episode 4 the ISD actually drags the corvette into the docking bay.

Scale's sticky with Star Wars ships; an ISD was BIG, biggest ship by far compared to anything else out there... though it was about the size of an Escort in BFG.

Actually the star destroyer shown is a Victory-Class Star Destroyer, which is a smaller ship from the Empire at War video game. From memory the ISD in episode IV is a Imperial I-Class SD. Here's a picture that shows some of the ships in the game (possibly future ships?):



Corellian Frigates are about the size of the Tartan Patrol Cruiser.

Victory class Star Destroyers were actually around long before the video games; they were the first of the 'Star Destroyer' class of ship, basically, before the Imperator, which later became the Imperial SD.

Corvettes are actually a smaller class than Frigates; similar but not quite the same. The Neblon B, which was the other one offered in the Armada game, was a Medical Frigate, the corvette was also called a 'blockade runner'.

That would be the Redemption. The Nebulon-B's were actually Imperial Navy escorts

I know it's a stretch, but the clone wars venerator is one of my favourite SDs. Maybe the rebels could use them?

Looks absolutely amaze-ballz! Standard games are 300pts as we suspected.
