More of a re-release to be fair. It looks like it hasn't recieved a new coat of paint either (according to the image).

Edit: It states at the end of the preview that it has a 'brand-new' metallic paint job. However, the original was metallic in nature anyways. So we'll have to wait until someone gets a look at the actual model.

I was hoping for a cloaked version.

If that happens, it will be a GenCon exclusive your thing and cost hundreds on the secondary market like the previous set of cloaked ships

Just like the Vrax?

When WizKids issues a "repaint" for a ship, are the changes merely cosmetic? Do they go back and edit the text on the cards to be clearer/easier to understand/apply?

So far, it has only been a new paint job. The cards have been unchanged.

Nice to see that the ship will be in stock again soon and even more stoked that our preview for the Venture is that much sooner.

If you look on the STAW Community Facebook closed group someone has posted some photos of the uss venture cards already. (oddly enough, comes with the USS Yamato's Captain...)

Not all of us are on Facebook, so if someone wouldn't mind posting them here on BGG it would be much appreciated.

Well! Now I have a soft shiny gray AND an obsidian Scimitar. Truly worth the effort to repaint. *shrugs* At the very least, this'll make it easier for newcomers to get. I just wonder if anyone's posting comparison shots between the originals and the repaints.

I've not seen any pictures of the new paintjob. Any chance you could be a diamond and do the honours?

Here you go. I can't promise the quality is all that great though.

I did notice they kept the original packaging talking about the "Upcoming Collective OP". shake

Thanks for posting.

Not much of a difference there. Scimitar was a good paint job to begin with, but still nice that folks just jumping in can get one.

I did notice that the ad that came with the Venture talked about the "Klingon Civil War OP"

Cheers for taking a comparison picture - see they didn't even change the blue-painted details either, lol.

Still, will probably splash out on one, even if it's just a back-up model incase some horrible ever happens to the other two (It's my favourite looking ship, and I'm not taking chances )

Running 3 Scimitars in a standard OP event is a perfectly legitimate tactic.

I only got one of the old version, despite being a Romulan player, so I'll probably pick one of these up anyway. But the differences in paint jobs are pretty subtle.

Took a couple of shots with lots of light... In a darkened room you could be forgiven for missing it:


Top is repaint, bottom is original

In the first pic, is the top one the original and bottom the repaint?

I've edited the post with captions below the pic.
The repaint is a copper-like colour, on comparison to the originals blue
