I am happy with the fact that these ships will represent the large scale models for the game since it is meant to run on the idea of dogfighting and introducing larger scale ships would move it into the realms of wargaming akin to other companies. That is not to say I wouldn't welcome FFG brining out a warship game based on Star Wars in the future since they make some great miniatures.
I agree. Also, the radically different sizes of capital vessels in Star Wars makes for a nightmare in proper scaling. I also don't feel that the current combat and movement system would truly reflect how those types of craft are employed. That being said, I wouldn't mind seeing a separate game with capital vessels, but I doubt that will ever happen(particularly after Starship Battles). I think they made the perfect choice with giving us vehicular combat at this level and based it on an already proven and successful system.

At 1:270 scale, the Millennium Falcon should be 3.89 inches long (or 9.89 cm). That is pretty big.
Slave One will be 3.13" / 7.96 cm tall, and almost as wide, not including mounting pegs! If those are "medium", I'd love to see some "large" ships :-P
No kidding , Makes one think what there version of large will be if they consider making large ships.
I just pre- orderd my Slave1, I wish I knew the stats on it so I could create a 100pt list for it, I just hope it's not insanly expensive on point cost becase im going to be so tempted to deck it out in all its weapons that I possibly can. I would love to have the slave 1 and two TIE advanced and whatever else I could fit in for a list. but I dont think ill know how list builds for the slave1 will work untill December.
