Scale of the BB or Dreadnaught

PostTue Sep 05, 2017 7:57 pm

I was looking through some pics of the Hawk booth at GenCon and they had the 2 up BB next to a UCM fleet. I really liked how it conveyed the sense of massiveness that a BB should, imo, bring to the table (especially UCM and PHR); though 2x scale is a bit too big. What about 1.5? I know that it doesn't make a lot of sense to replace the BB sculpt, but what about making Dreads that size, or following the lead of the "convention only" route and offering a faux-new BB class at 1.5 scale, in the vein of the Cruisers and BC's that are different sculpts but have the same stats?

A Dreadnought being about 1.5 times the size of a Battleship makes sense. I want to see a huge Scourge mothership!

It was said that Dreadnoughts will not be bigger than Battleships but bulkier.

Simon does give a little more idea of the scale, role etc on a podcast called 'THLZ' (The Hot LZ) if you go to the episode called "GenCon Special" they have an interview with him.

I would quote him but i cant remember exactly what he said and i dont want to miss quote him.

I don't listen to podcasts because as a non native English speaker I have a hard time to understand the mumblings of the people talking.

Same here. It is difficult to follow the speech.
