Are the Hermes transport and Llort Daggaden Penetrator in 'The Fiery Trial' official ships? If so are there pictures of them on the 'net? I hate trying to describe starships to my players when I could just show them a picture.
Well, they are as official as any of Mongooses stuff - they were part of published supplements done under license and supervision of WB. Originally they both came from the now gone space combat game "Babylon 5 Wars" by "Agents of Gamings". And were now re-featured in another licensed product.
There are a few nice pictures of the Hermes scattered through some of their supplements, as AoG had a CGI model made for it.
And a miniature of course. this being a mini game mostly (OK, so they had counters too, but those didn't look a tenth as goos as a painted mini, and were annoying to play with anyway - sure, they had the advantage that you could stack them and so have multiple ships in one hex, but they also had the great disadvantage of a gust of wind scattering whole battle fleets...). It was one of the last full-scale minis AoG produced... and looks rather nifty.
No such luck on the Daggarden, only the shiluette from it's Ship Control Sheet gives you a hint on how it might look (a nice asymmetrical design).
It's good to see that even some of the other old time B5W players aren't avoiding the RPG like the plague. Now, it's a matter of waiting for the fourth season book so I can get my hands on a Shadow Omega and the Ancients......
