And they are the same scale as your WAS minis so you can use both to make bigger fleets.
So why buy Mongoose models when WAS ones are available by the bucket load on ebay?
First the detail is way better and about the same price, unless you want a rare WAS mini then you pay 4x or 5x the normal cost.
Second the line has died and is far from complete includding more of your important ships, which Mongoose is building all the ships of importance and some not so important.
Third your supporting an active mini line versus the remenants of a dead line.
My note about WAS was that the WAS players wanted to find a place to get all the ships not made for that scale by WOTC for WAS and stuff that was selling for outragious prices to be bought at a fair price.
I myself started with WAS but am using the mongoose ships to fill out my missing ships then over time replacing the ones I have with mongoose's better ships for my fleets.
