New Fireraptor

Postby Calistan » Tue Aug 07, 2007 7:47 pm

I like the new Fireraptor Design. I hope they try to make a twin-hulled design in the future for the Drazi.

Not so sure i like it, the blunt head is probably my issue. It may grow on me.

Drazi ships always had that elegant look about them, this ship doesn´t - well, it´s far better than it´s first incarnation, so I can live with that.

This should become the Drazi Transportraptor so they can go and make a Fireraptor. Or if it has to be a warship make it a Drazi carrier of some sort and then make another ship a Fireraptor.

It's OK. Like many new ACTA sculpts, it misses the mark ever so slightly. Hard to articulate it exactly but the racial aesthetic, inspiration & flavor seem to be missing from many of the new minis.

I think the new Fireraptor is worse than the first attempt. At least the first attempt of it had the usual Drazi pointy front to it.

the nose of that ship reminds me of the Andromeda Ascendant for some reason.

Well, is broad and blunt; pretty much like the Andromeda.

The grid on top of the nose reminds me oa a steam engine or a prison door.
