I really think that your design for the [b]Pommerania class Dreadnought [/b]is supercool, with its hunchbacked and brutal feel. But it stands completely apart from the rest of the range with its look/design/lines why not go for a fleet based on that design? IMO its much more up-to-date and compatible with [b]Cold Navy, GZG[/b] and the new exelent range from [b]Ninja Magic[/b]

The ONESS are due some new vessels, their fleet is currently the smallest of the four main powers. I have one or two designs already sketched out and certainly the replacement for the Wuppertal cruiser is morphing toward the look of the Pommerania. The fleet carrier design is a bit different but I don't think it's possible to make a carrier in that style, although I will be re-using one or two components to keep the feel of the design.

I've been edging away from mimicking the GZG NSL style too much, I want our models to stand on their own hexagonal bases rather than riding in the slipstream of FT. However, if the consensus is that any new ONESS models should be in the style of the Pom then I'm prepared to listen.

yes okay i see what you mean about not wanting to look to much like the GZG NSL range but the bulky, fat, heavily armoured look of the POM is something you should continue to explore... and making a carrier from this design should ( IMO ) not be a problem unless you insist on the ( in deep space ) strange open flightdeck, how about hangardoors in the side or the prow?

I really like the POM but one ship is not enough to build a fleet .. hope for more ( corvette, frigate, destroyer,cruiser and carrier.... please :O)

OK, given our experience with the new releases (admittedly based on just one show and one day's worth of sales !) the Wuppertal II design seems to be very popular - it outsold all of the other designs put together at SELWG (we were expecting the Umberto to be the pace-setter). So what's likely is that I'll do at least a couple more in the same style, probably a smaller cruiser and some sort of escort vessel, and then also a large vessel, battleship sized, that's a sort of half-way morph between the Wuppertal and the Pommerania. It seems that flying bricks are this year's black as far as spaceship designs go ...
