Honestly, they've been done by other companies really well so I'd prefer to see figures for them.

Babylon 5 Wars ahd great (I still have them) fighter miniatures:

as does Spartan games (much more abstracted) fighter wings:

and X-Wing:

Fighters are a pretty standard trope of most scifi nowadays and integral part of their universes (realistic or not) so they add a bit of cinematic flair.

Besides, I'd really want little mini reavers in space chucking out plasma bolts :twisted:

I hope we get small models for the fighter/bomber wings.

Models that are easy to paint with a base coat, wash and dry brush!

Hawk has the nice tradition to do things in scale, so actual models would be rather small and I doubt Dave breaks that concept for Fighters (which in some cases look goofy next to ships if they are to big). I think this is not really the most important part about the game. ;)

German space magic for PHR would you like to know more?

Yay, another B5 player! I actually haven't played B5Wars, but rather A Call to Arms. Same figures though, and I thought they did fighters very well.

Okay...I'm actually quite liking the little B5 fighter stands. They are kinda cute. :lol:
