Playtest Fleet: Terran Republic Navy (v.0.5.1)

Terran Republic Navy

Terran Republic Navy

The pictured fleet is one of Xtreme Hobby’s Cold Navy fleets, the Terran Republic Navy. (Click to enlarge.)

For those of you who know Cold Navy’s sad story, these are indeed the problematic metal models from the original release. (The Masada destroyers in particular, don’t have a good point to attach a base. They tip over all the time.)

From left to right: two Masada destroyers (Alesia and Plataea), an Orion multi-role cruiser (Perseus), a Northhampton frigate (Sergei Krikalev), and a Conquest battleship (Audacity). The ships on the far side of Audacity mirror the classes of the near side: John Young, Pegasus, Thermopylae and Zama.

Ravenstar Studios currently owns the line, and recast them in resin, with pre-made base points. I’ve got some of the new Northhamptons in the queue to be painted.

This was the highest-pointed fleet in the first playtest, as the sculptor managed to jam all the high-value weapons as he could on these sculpts. For the pick-up playtest, they went with vanilla crew attributes (Discipline d8, Initiative d8, Gunnery d8).

With the shift to the d10 rules, the current playtest values are:
