so i just got my attacking defiant, and the model is slightly longer than the original wizkids model(heroclix) and its also less detailed! i figured it would have had more detail... but it has less.. and costs more...

anyone else find this weird?

I think it is because the mold they used for the Attack Wing Defiant was a re-use of the "cloaked Defiant" mold from Tactics II rather than the regular Defiant mold from Tactics I--and that Tactics II mold is much less detailed.

It's the same with the Attack Wing Klingon battlecruisers (Gr'oth and Kronos One)--they were a re-use of the cloaked battlecruiser B'moth from Tactics II, which besides having the bridge molded wrong, has much less detail overall (such as the nacelles) than the battlecruisers from Tactics I.

It's really disappointing.

Why did they do this? Has anyone gotten an answer?

Oh, boo. Don't tell me they did it again? I only had the cloaked Defiant to compare against...

Repaint all your Attack Wing models. They're nice sculpts, but horrible paint jobs. Powder blue ENT-D? Repaint the sucker! Klingons the color of a shampoo bottle? Repaint them so they can go to Sto'Vo'Kor. Please, for the love of Pete, repaint!

Actually they aren't the best sculpts, to those who care anyway. The D7 continues to be a disappointment, and for the Galaxy at least the proportions are wrong. We get better from amateurs on Shapeways.

Paint isn't so bad by comparison. 4 times out of 5 it seems passable.

The D7/K'tinga situation is horrible, as is the USS Miniprise. Other than that, I wasn't troubled by any of the sculpts.

I confirmed this today. Considerably less detailed. I will be switching them out. Will post pics tomorrow.
