We're talking The Original Series here not movie refit and a model that I know Ben Robinson has seen as a real labour of love.
Painted out in the grey that fans will be familiar with from pictures of the original model currently undergoing restoration she is, as I expected, very plain. The models from the 1960's were indeed very simple and straightforward. Detail was minimal and hey, this is a show that won't go beyond the decade.... No need to get too technical.
All the weight with this one is in the saucer with the secondary hull and nacelles all in plastic. Just be warned that you might end up with some scratches on the…
June's Attack Wing expansions have arrived and after a week of getting to slam them through their paces, let's look at the results...
As usual there are three diverse ships to add/subtract/mix and match with your existing fleet(s) although how many of us have been gagging for the Bajoran scout ship Ratosha may well be the biggest mystery of the year.
Probably one of the first model versions of the vessel which could usually be found ferrying just about anybody from Bajor to Deep Space Nine, I can only think players will be wanting to buy a few of these to go alongside their Bajoran interceptor(s). A low squadron points starship (18), the Ratosha won't get you anywhere at pace but with your options for this faction fairly limited you're going to be stuck with very few other places to go. That low total does mean that an "average" 40 squadron points per ship is going to get you a tidy amount of upgrades which you might want to choose from the accompanying pack.
Options for captain come from the season two trilogy opener…

As the Social Media Director for Axanar, I get a lot of information through the waves. But today I can share with you a little bit about Jeffrey Combs and Bob O'Reilly! Here is the link to the TrekGeeks podcast where you can hear more about it! http://trekgeeks.com/archives/2462
Also, Axanar is bringing out an iPhone and Android app to keep fans updated and more! I'll update as more comes through the wire.
Until then, enjoy this shot of Vulcan made by our experts also where the green-screen photo will be taking place! This was taken last Saturday when production officially started! It's an exciting time for Axanar right now. The cast and crew are the best in their fields! It's a great project to be part of and I'm thrilled!
Been a while since I dropped by but hopefully I can get a bit more involved - and I am looking for writers too... Anyway, wanted to drop this for all those Attack Wing players. Hope you enjoy my thoughts...
Your opponents will be taking your fleet a little more seriously with two great additions to the Attack Wing range.
Taking us, firstly, to the 22nd Century we slide into the Mirror Universe and encounter the ISS Avenger. A sturdy little NX Class starship the model is very good given the size with a moderate level of detail all over.
Thing is you could make the model out of platinum but if the cards and stats are a bit rubbish then it would be utterly useless. Now the ship itself isn't the highest powered ship available with zero shields and a maximum move of three but this means that HeroClix have accurately noted the difference in generations of the franchise and the nuances between ships.
It wouldn't be good…
