Spring Cleaning with Babylon 5

Postby MongooseMatt » Wed Feb 13, 2008 5:03 pm

As part of Mongoose's current restructuring, we are taking advantage of doing a little spring-cleaning around the office, emptying drawers and cupboards that are overflowing with all sorts of interesting bits and bobs. Over the next few weeks, you will see a wide range of things appearing on eBay, such as models painted for demonstration battles, books and games we have acquired over the years from a variety of sources, and models used for playtesting various games, some of which never proceeded beyond the initial design phase. They have been lying around, inactive, for some time, and it would be nice to know they are going to good homes where they might see some action on the table top!

There will also be some _very_ rare, _seriously_ one-off items that have served as prototypes for various projects.

In the current crop, we are displaying various Babylon 5 items, including the original Armageddon ship prototypes, and the Drakh fleet in its original paint scheme. Among all of this is lurking a 15mm scale Thunderbolt Starfury - only one of these exists, and it was prepped as a demonstration of how such models could work in either a ground combat or fighter scale game set in the Babylon universe. Some serious collectible value there!

You can find all of these items at the following link;

Keep your eye on this link over the next few weeks, as we will have all manner of other items listed, such as 1/144 scale tanks that were used as playtest models for the original Battlefield Evolution (yes, it was going to be 1/144 scale!), prototypes for SST v2 (including the Forth and maybe, just maybe, a drop ship), and some other things that are just plain weird!

The orbital platforms made me laugh.

Shame there's no Dilgar stuff there, or will that be appearing later?

Was any design or prototype work done on the two Dilgar heavy cruisers mentioned in the fleet book?

Well, we have just emptied one cupboard so far - even I don't know what we'll find in some of the others!
