It was about time they gave another job opportunity to Cheng and his Isk farming buddies over in China. At least they'll get high while sniffing plastic vapors now.

I was all set to buy the Faction set, that was until I thought about the Tax and Fedex bill.

Oh well. Evil or Very Mad

Edit: If someone in the UK buys the faction set, could they please let us know the end cost, including vat and fedex billing.
Thanks muchly. Very Happy

The price comes with a bit of sticker shock. Also, I would rather have the Typhoon than the Tempest.

I guess action figures are not far behind?

what happened to the extra pics of the ships that were posted about in the news upon login?

I was expecting at LEAST all 4 sides and the top, or better yet, some sort of 3d viewing app to rotate around a pic of the ships.

I'm lined up to buy, but won't till I see the actual ships in a LOT higher detail.

CCP. PLEASE don't use images that are 700x700. we want DETAIL. Warn folks it's a large image, and put up 4k x 4k pics. Please..

Paintjob on the Navy Mega and the Navy Apoc is simply wrong.

The Navy Mega got the same paintjob like the Navy Exequeror or Navy Vexor, while it is black/white ingame(actualy I liked the black Version in Clasic more).

Navy Apoc got black side panels(they are golden/yellow ingame).

Also I canīt understand why the Faction BS are only avaidably as package. 500 $ are quite a heavy pricetag, even 125$ is...

Been drooling over these all day at work :)

Definitely getting 4 (1 of each)

Still undecided atm cause of the differnce with the colors on the mega and apoc.

Even the premium client the navy mega is black, I can see it eventually getting changed.. If they make the faction Vindicator.. why make 2 black megas? (always wondered about that ingame)

So I can go with that.. but the faction Apoc is reddish if I recall correctly.. and the Amarr are all about being bright and shiny with their Holiness and all. (think theres something about that in the navy apoc disc) So I cant see where the navy apoc would ever be dark :/ Then theres all the detail lines on the regular mega.. Which puts me on the fence getting the Navy set vs 4 reg ones.

That being said.. I cant wait to get a set at my front door .. no matter the differnces they friggen ROCK. These babies are going next to my limited edition pewter Dragons :)

Is it just me or does the standard apocalypse look a bit... well:

Looks like some sick blotchy camel that fell in some oil, with a bent back.

Standard Apoc

Whereas not a 10/10 for my level of fussyness the Navy Apoc somehow looks a lot more accurate and respectable in it's picture. Definetely more buyable for me.

Good thing nobody uses the Fleet Tempest ingame so noone notices the model has the wrong wings...

Otherwise, nice. Expected price for such big models.

Yea, although a camo'd out Raven is all well and good, can we get a Rattlesnake model plz? It seems to me that CCP decided to just slap some different paint on the existing models of the non-faction ships and call them faction. Also, yeah the Fleet Tempest sails are wrong Neutral

TBH, Gallente Navy faction ships have had a borked up colour scheme in-game anyway. The Vex and Exequror are coloured as I think the whole range should be, but the Comet and Mega are still Black/White, and the Deimos has the same fricking colour scheme as the Navy Issue cruisers.

1) Give the Comet and Mega camo schemes
2) Give the Deimos Duvolle Labs' golden/silver colour scheme and not a Navy scheme.

Without changing it in-game, those models are technically not Navy Megas. IMHO it needed to be changed in-game anyway, so why not do it and not get in trouble for false advertising?

Also, your Fleet Tempest needs fixing.

Will still get the regular Mega though. Very Happy

It really, really, really sucks that it's going to be based in North America. Sure, might be better for the residents of the US, Canada and Mexico who have a lovely free trade agreement, but customs charges and delivery to the UK is just going to mount up and suck - hard.

Still going to get that Mega though.




Ahh, yeah. No. You'll still get custom'ed if it goes across the border to Canada. I doubt there'll be any -duty- (extra taxes that the free trade agreememnt works agains) but if Canada Customs and Border Services (yeah. that's their real name) decides to look at it you'll get tagged with any applicable sales taxes in your province. So you'll pay the GST and whatever PST is still owed.

EU/UK people: that's teh same thing with you guys getting assessed VAT. Us canucks don't get a break, despite what you may think. I for one will request it be sent by normal USPS, as I have no desire to deal with FedEx and their obscene handling fees.

I know it's painfully obvious with the other three, but even the "Faction Raven" seems to have a wrong color scheme for a CNR... are they even supposed to be the Navy/Fleet versions?

Man, no fleet pest :(

Anyone else thinking of buying one just to have a great base resin model to go to town on with the paints? I know I am.

I wanna more windows and more true to game colours. I'm confident I might be able to do a decent job of it.

Proportion wise they are all very accurate apart from the tempest as far as I can see which came off a looking a lot shorter and fatter due to the pertruding beams at the front being pretty noticably shorter and smaller.

What to the people with experience say? Is it ok to apply an overcoat on these things when they're already painted?

As long as you know what type of paint the original is done, it's not hard to do a repaint. Would have to test different thinners to see what reacts with it, then I'd just spray over with a good sealing base coat. Though the original paintjobs do look to be pretty well done, so most people here will end up with a lesser quality result. I wonder though if these are production pieces? or prototypes?

Honestly, when I saw "Models", I was thinknig of something in a kit form or something like that. Not what I was hoping for, I'll be passing on these and just building my own like originally planned. They look well sculpted and all...

And solid cast resin, no wonder they are so pricey. 3 pounds for the Raven, yikes! And given the shaping, I can see the Raven and Tempest suffering from a good number of short-casts. I just hope they are getting them molded properly, I'd hate to see these things full of pinholes.
