By your choice of God.

 

Look at the size of that Ogre in comparison to the Hex Base.

 

Then consider most CAV have little Difficulty fitting on a hexbase.

 

I have difficulty with the size of the Kiku in comparison to the Tsuseki. Particularly because the Kiku is a very small damage track model and yet it appears to be much larger than the Tsuseki, (which should in my opinion be larger, more on that in a different thread).

 

And or course..... WHAT DAY is release (as I writhe in the ecstasy of anticipation)

The Tsuiseki is already out.

 

As for size and Damage Tracks, they don't necessarily have to coincide.  The Specter is about the same size as a Wraith, but its got two less DT.

 

Also notice how much of the Warlord hangs over the hexbase? :-D

Fromt the 21 Questions post.

 

Q1)

A question as to the size of the Gun Ships. The chassis DT is 3 would it be fair to assume that proxied models should be of an approximate size compared to the Panther (also a chassis 3)?

A1)

DTs can roughly equate to size so it would be a valid assumption, aircraft for the most part will be larger than their land equivalent though they will have less DTs.

 

I think that says it. The Aircraft are a bit small for the chassis they have.

 

As for the Warlord. It is an inferior machine to the Gladiator, a smaller 5 DT CAV, and with a chassis that size I think the Warlord should be a 6 DT CAV.

 

The Wraith being 6 DT and the Scorpion being 6 DT are also out of scale. With the Wraith being even smaller than the Gladiator.

 

With the resculpt of the Rhino and a few others in the works I thought I would express my oppinion.

Size isn't all that important here, it's just a rough guide to how many DT's (as in you can tell whic chassis class it's in but that's about it).

 

And I do agree with the Warlord being inferior to the Gladiator... which is a shame because I prefer the Warlord's model.

Size doesn't matter  :cool:

 

Seriously though, bigger isn't always better.  Ed said once on the Mil-Net boards (I think it was him) that the armor rating did not always imply "amount of armor" that it reflected the CAV's ability to resist damage.

 

Angles, armor being dense in strategic locations, etc.

 

DTs... that can mean size or it can mean the machine can sustain lots of damage and still be operational.  Kinda like Rocky Balboa, he's short but he took down that huge Russian guy.  I'd say he has at least 6DTs and an armor rating of 4  lol

It could be not that the Kikyu's are large, but the Tsuiseki's are small ...

 

I vaguely remember reading somewhere (possible the yahoo group) several months ago that the Tsuiseki's were going to be made under-scale to keep the price from getting out of hand. †Anyone else remember this or was I smoking something?

 

I can accept air units being large for their damage track; in my mind, air units are fragile.  With regards to CAVs, less damage tracks on a larger model could represent a difference in manufacturing quality or design (more DTs = better engineering).  Personaly, I'd love to see some clunker CAVs with low survivability, made by some knock-off company called "KOBA" or whatever ... something poor planets or criminals can afford.  But hey my sense of humor is strange. ^_^

And by the great ogre now you must be very happy Frank... passing the bucket for the drool! That one looks, ahem, great!

 

As to the rest about DT and all that... look at it this way... and F-16 Fighting Falcon is nimble and fast and ahem... small compared to the F-14, or for that matter the A-10. The way I see it is... these minis are great... and usable in multiple places.

Well compared to the more indiscriminate area affect blasts of fury, that much direct firepower would be like the finger of which every diety you pefer to invoke while crushing your hapless foes.

 

Then laugh as you see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of the women  :angry:

 

oops, better go see the doctor about that over personality again

Hehehehe, someone's been watching Conan again :o)

 

And yes, unfortunately people don't run from the Ogre - or if they do it's a strategic repositioning and not a rout.

 

How the Starhawk VI, that's a master of warfare and a fearsome opponent. I just hope it's the first thing from the second JoR to be released.... I need another company :o)
