I don't want to have to buy a full set of faction ships just to get a navythron, way too expensive for that. Sad


Wait, are the "faction" bs going to be the navy version, or the pirate battleships???? I am now confused. I assumed they meant eh pirate versions.


I'm pretty sure "faction" means Caldari Gallente, Amarr, Minimatar. Not Navy or state or pirate faction.


The Eve-China site shows a CNR so I'm guessing they'll all be Navy/Fleet battleships.

Would be nice to get "faction" clarified tbh. I thought it meant pirate faction myself.

That's awesome for everyone here who is rich but...

Because I'm incredibly fussy for that kind of price.

- Dettachable and reattachable to the stand please so you can look at it as it should be when you want to before setting it back on for display.

- It best have a large portion of it's componants made from metal.

- Please don't pull the replace the $ sign for a euro or a sign routine, it's bad enough us over the pond will have to find someway to get them shipped over. But no way am I paying 496.96 for a navy edition plastic model. There would come a day where I may accidently sit or step on it and break it's tank. Sad

Kinda expensive stuff but what the hell, I must have one. And I guess that FedEx won't ship the thing to Europe at a low price either, but oh well.

... whats the point of having a model if you didnt assemble it yourself? I suppose theres the professional look factor but come on, you know you want to build your megathron model.

He already said 124.99 of anything. I offered 124.99 Zimbawbean dollars.


124.99 lira here.

well I'm sold, but how safe will the shipping be?


I've had nothing but good experiences of FedEx so I'd say that it would be pretty safe.

$125 sounds high until you figure in that they're 1. resin and 2. preassembled/ prepainted. Given that it's about right IMO.

Would kinda prefer an unassembled kit though.

I think $100 would of been a good price.
We will have to see how good the packaging is (is it impressive in itself)
Then i spose they could add a small booklet of notable (fictional rp) engagements the said ship has been involved in.
And ofc the quality of the model (looks good from photos).

Done well it could warrant the price and make good gifts for any avid eve fan.

Good stuff! Can't wait to buy some of these!

Also I second(3rd, 4th?) the availability of some kits to build.

Assembly/painting/basing is rewarding and good for the mind. =)

That, and if you do a good job it seems to mitigate the dork factor a little bit: Sci- fi -10 pts, grown man with toy -6 pts, good with tools +5 pts, patience/ attention to detail +3 pts, has a hobby that doesn't involve hypodermic needles or killing stuff +2 pts.

Note that there's still a massive penalty involved with building a WH40K army.

A penalty beyond having to endure a table top session of WH40K?

hi, im a collector of different models and such.

first point, they will likely come off the stands, small slot and peg system on the belly of the ship will allow this.

second point, no, not metal, RESIN, metal models would run you significantly more money. They are called collectors items for a reason, they appeal to a very small group. Metal models likely be 3-5 times as much each.

third point- conversion is easy, but regardless, the 496 is for all FOUR battleships, they are 125 a piece, and if your a collector, or serious fan, that is perfectly reasonable. Maybe not to you, but then, you may not be used to collecting these types of things.

Also, don't step on it, easy, it should stay on a desk, shelf, or, in the rare case that you have many things like them (/me looks away innocently) a display case
