I want one, and I'm not even an EA player!
Pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
Cos there's bugger all down here on Earth.

Wouldn't be easier (and take up less space) for those who don't want one to state that fact on this thread? :D

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

The prototype is finally off to the mould maker! I can't wait to see it reproduced. Roughly 7 days before batch one is complete. They will be created in 3 batches of 20, one week at a time so depending on when I recieve your order, some people may have to wait 1-3 weeks longer than others.

With that said, I'm opening the floodgates for ordering via Paypal. Please refer to this link to order the Nike-class Battlecruiser. This page will explain shipping, parts, etc. I'll upload updated pics (ie painted minies) when I get my first batch.

I hope you like the finished product!

The artwork is from http://foxfire.fatal.ru/models.html. I'm working out arrangements with the artist now to use his artwork.

The first batch will be ready roughly by Friday, give or take a few days. And yes, the first batch is 20 (or so)...

The original intention was counts-as stand-ins for the Nemesis-class destroyer.

Originally intended as a Nemesis sub, perhaps it's a bit small for an Armageddon class ship. I can see it being subbed for a Marathon.

I'll also give writing special rules for it a shot...

What are you talking to small for armagedon. The Nike could have even more fire power than the warlock, and for the damage. could be the same of the Warlock or the Nemesis.Image

Just from a size perspective. I'm fine if people use it for either but a Nemesis should probaby be the same size or slightly larger than the Warlock.

I guess this means someone will have to construct another mini! :shock:
