Here I was thinking Regiment of Reknown Outriders from WFB Smile

Looks good.. this was in what? Dark Forces the old video game right? I've always been a fan of assymetrical ships.. probably why I liked EVE so much back in the day

Want large ships JO? check out this! http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=4979

I think i'll order it just for the star destroyer alone. The small ships come unpainted... I guess there is a lot of people who wanted the big ships but X-Wing is too large scale to have a star destroyer obviously.

True that. Even a 'Victory' class star destroyer (smaller than the 'Imperial' class you see in the movies) would be 4 feet long and about 2 and a half feet wide. That would be a pretty epic game to play though. Flying around a star destroyer and every turn having chances to get tagged by turbolaser fire!

And yes I will be getting that Armada game. Hoping they release all sorts of ships for it too!!!

To Den: the outrider is Dash Rendara ship. A Corellian YT-2400 freighter and much like the Falcon, was heavily upgraded for smuggling work. It's 'fame' comes from the Shadows of the Empire Videogame and book that's set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Sorry I guess it starts in ESB with Dash fighting in the battle of Hoth (he downed one of the AT-ATs).

You can also see the Outrider in the 'new' remastered Star Wars Episode IV when Luke/Ben + Droids are metering Mos Eisley, the Outrider is taking off and flying away.
