Which ships are getting a resculpt for 2e?

Postby Poi » Tue Jul 17, 2007 2:09 pm

I know the Hyperion and Olympus are being redone, but which other ships are being resculpted?

The Nova and Omega are pretty worn moulds.

The fins on the Dilgar are also in need.

I've seen some dodgy Vree casts as well.

Filling and filing can only go so far.

I don't know but I sure hope the Olympus is somewhere at the top of the resculpt list. It's so out of scale with everything else that I won't use it in my fleets.

Yes it is! In fact there was a picture of the new smaller Olympus sculpt in a previous S&P :D

So with the different sizes, do we get variant stats to match? The Olympus and Super Olympus...kind of like the Hornet and Super Hornet fighter craft?

I don't think the Hyperion needs anything - The Omega first, for sure. Are we sure it's being redone?

IIRC correctly, the Omega is getting a resculpt, and the Hyperion a replaced mould, or something like that

I think it is something to do with base mounting point on the Hyperion.

Heck yes! While most of the EA minis that I got needed drilling, there was a lot of colourful language and hacksaw action before the Hyperions were ready to drill... Mind you the rest of the mini itself was quite good, though I'd like to see the nozzles with some sort of lug or tab to fit on the drive section so it isn't just a butt joint.

I really hope the Vorchan is getting a resculpt. Every single Vorchan in my Centauri fleet box was in bad shape at best.

Would you buy more if they were redone?

I cheated with my minis. I just cut the peg of the top of the stand and just glued the mini to what was left. Done it with all my minis

It'd depend on their 2nd Edtion stats and what the resculpt looks like. If it looks like it recieved the Adira treatment then I'd stick with the bad Vorchans. On the other hand if it gets the same treatment the 2nd Z'Takk did(and their stats make them worth playing) then yes.

On the Narn end about the only resculpt needed that I've seen is the Frazi. It's in terrible shape. The G'Quan just needs someone to put proper holes for the stands in it(the holes on all of my G'Quans were filled up). The Bin'Tak while not in great shape wasn't in terrible shape either. All the pieces connected alright anyways. One of my T'Loths were okay. The 2nd was okay except for the fact that the right wing was horribly bent. I decided to treat that as battle damage. :lol: All my patrol and skirmish ships were fine as were the Dag'Kar, Var'Nic, and Rongoth(well other than the usual bases don't fit the holes problem that I wish Mongoose would fix).

Stats wise you'll want to use the Vorchan, no doubts there whatsoever :wink:

I'd like to see the Vorchan get redone, the mouting point is badly placed, it really should be underneath the top turret. Also about 3 or 4 of mine have deformed wing edges
