Reprint of older ships?

37 posts in this topic

Hey all, 

Was going over old comments and things to ask before I really do go dark for GenCon.  Some comments were posted in another thread on some out-of-print models that people would like to see come back.   Made me curious, if you could get get Spartan to reissue something, what out-of-print or hard-to-find model would you like to see?  I'm not saying that any of these can or should come back; just a fun little exercise to see what models people are trying to chase down.   It's been so serious and tense around here (I know, I'm at the center of it :) ) so maybe a lighter topic will tide everyone over for the next little while.

For me, I'd like to see the Dindrenzi Praetorian, Terran Razorthorn, and Terran Tyrant make a reappearance.  

What's on your wish-list?   

Mike

Hi Guys,

Just seen this thread. Nice idea for discussion.

Sniddy - agreed on the Medusa. We stopped that model because of manufacturing complexities, but it would be most cool to bring it back. I'd want to revisit the 'tendrils' and make sure we did a better job on them for folk.

All the best,

Spartan Neil

Oooooh. I like this Thread already!

I do have one but the Tyrant is my favorite battleship without a doubt.

I have also been drooling over the Templars and would like to see them and the  Apollo and Razorthorn updated.

And I have a friend whose been looking for the medusa ever since he first saw a picture of it.  

The Conquerer would be a good one too.

That all I can think of, For now.

Medusa was a lovely sculpt and I'm sure people would love to see it back - even for a limited time only

Seconded

Err makes no sense i just ordered a second  Dindrenzi Praetorian 4 weeks ago.

 

They should reprint the space terrain conversion blister. I would take 6 more.

Whoah, ninja'd on this :) - +1 for the Overseer carrier!

@Spartan Neil

Things I would buy in a heartbeat if made available :

The Medusa - we've had this discussion before and it seems I'm not the only one.

The Civilian Ships - everyone could use these for scenarios and I'm sure they'd help bolster the sales of future campaign books.

Dimensional Gate and Anethama Probe - Again, these would be useful for campaigns for those that do not wish to order the Overseer box set (such as me, I don't like Directorate)

Saurian Battleships Station - I know it's new and a Kickstarter model but I'd purchase it separately if I could.

To reiterate, I'd buy each of these the moment they became available....I'm sure I'm not the only one, right?

Gotcha Cernunnos....

Saurian Battle Station is a tricky one as it is exclusive to the Kickstarter - doesn't mean we won't make different ones for retail. It is, however, available as an Add-On and folk can grab it easily at a great price.

Dimensional Gate and Probe - they are literally going up on the KS as freebies Backers this week.

Medusa is about to appear on the KS (see the Aquan Battle Force when it goes online).

Civilian Ships are on the KS already.

Have a look at the KS Add-ons later this week. You may be pleased.

All the best,

Neil

Before 2.0 and the Tyrant came out, the Manta was hands down the most iconic ship, imho.

 

Other than that? The Hydra, for sure. I have a soft spot for the Brood and Swarms as well. Most of the old carriers are boss.

You have my attention. @Spartan Neil I really appreciate your attention to the communities wants and needs. If these come online I will certainly back the Kickstarter as soon as I can after Gen Con. Thank you.

As for the Civilian Ships, I'm referring to the original three models.

I dare say that after adding thirty pounds for postage, not-Europe people won't consider a Saurian Battle Station as grabbable "easily at a great price".

 

On ship news, just keep the current range in production and don't "update" the style so that new ships look wrong compared to 2.0 stuff. Also, no more scale creep causing increasingly larger ships. That's more important than any older stuff coming back.  After that's ensured, bring the old Sorylian ships back. Before they got lumpy and hideous.

To be honest: not one!

I own at least one of every ship produced (to market) for this game....and in a few situations paid a pretty penny to wrestle rare OOP models from their previous owners (yes I was ripped off okay....but an obsession is an obsession!).  Now I can't wait for my Admiral pledge and the expansion packs.  Must add some new shelves to the games room soon.

It appears that the Bane and Medusa are the two most popular requests. I say Templar. They have the hauberk beat all to pieces in the looks department. Hauberks are just to bulky.

TEMPLAR

I would really like to see a resculps of the Aquan Manta battlecarrier and any of the old Manta Ray themed escorts, cruisers, etc. The battlecarrier was by far my favorite. Unfortunately, I didn't pick one up when they were more readily available!
