When I first saw the press releases for this game, I had difficulty grasping the scale of the ships. With my greedy mitts on the matter, I think GW nailed it. Too small would have made the game feel oddly situated and distant (I struggle with Epic for this reason); too large might have made the ships feel flamboyant and cumbersome. For my money, the GW team have found the perfect middle ground.
And the models themselves are unexpectedly beautiful.
Unfortunately, I do not have clear photos of the ships. My birthday is not until the end of the month; however, before our big game some weeks ago now, Chris sent over his scenery. He was quite pressed in his struggle to finish all of the ships before the night in question and I was quite happy to oblige.
As I will be receiving the game in celebration of, and for the mere coincidence of, several… cough… decades… cough… of my existence, I can safely say the game is worth the money. heyo.
I will also say that if I was not to be gifted the game reasonably soon, I would pop out a get one on my own gumption. It’s not cheap, but you get plenty back for the pain. Moreover, my impression is that it will be an ideal go-to game on those nights when rum is in the air.
++QUICK FAVOR ALERT: my lovely wife is in the process of completing her master's degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. For the linguistics part of her thesis, she is required to collect data on the perception of non-standard practices. She has created a very short, entirely anonymous questionnaire (open to all) to gather said research. If you are free, easy, and inclined, please click here and answer candidly to help her compile the data. The questions are designed to open a discussion on the perception of gender, race, and occupation within various non-standard practices. Again. Totally anonymous. All are welcome (native speakers or otherwise). The more data the better. You have my thanks in advance. Cheers!!!++
