Thanks to SarDragon to pointing out that I am horrible at spell checking! LoL  Ok, so the Empire is made up of public schools!

Funny you should mention X-Wing Miniatures game. I play that as well.  :)



Three questions: 1 - are all those models in correct scale to each other? 2- what is the ship in the top left corner next to the Imperial Shuttle? 3- Is that a K-Wing Assault Bomber next to the Y-Wing on the bottom right corner of the bottom shelf?

Thanks.

Thanks.

1. These are all correct in scale to each other.  The scale of the game is slightly skewed when it comes to the larger ships in the game like the Correlian Corvette.

2. The ship in the top left next to the Lambda Class Shuttle is an Imperial VT-49 Decimator.  http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/VT-49_Decimator

3. I assume you are referring to the HWK-290 light freighter.  http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/HWK-290_light_freighter
The other ship to the right of the Y-Wing is an E-Wing escort starfighter. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/E-wing_escort_starfighter

Hope that helps.

1) yes
2) VT-49 Decimator
3) No it is the HWK 290 Light Freighter, the K-Wing just got released.

For anyone interested, X-Wing Miniatures really is a great tabletop tactical strategy game that I recommend.

I've liked what I've seen in that and the new Armada game. I've already got too much on my list still for Star Trek Attack Wing and my Warhammer and 40K armies, though.

I looked at Armada but the rules require an engineering degree and the core set is outrageous in price!  I have too much invested in X-Wing already and I like it.  I think I'll stick with it.

I like the concept of the large fleet battles of Armada but the $100 core set is a no go.

Amazon has the core set for $63. But that's still too much.

I was going to say "I think that's one thing we can all agree on," but then I remembered that this is CAPTalk.  There's nothing we can all agree on.

We could all (or mostly) agree that Star Wars is awesome.
