The new ships in the expansion are the print and play ships it appears. Half of me is thrilled that I don't have to create the new ships and mats but the other half would have liked getting three true new ships. I think I would rather have had a total six new ships even if three are imperfect print and play version, yet I would always be bothered that my mats and paint job weren't on par with the official ones.

MORAL: you just can't make everyone happy.

Note that the ship ability cards for those ships are new in the expansion, and that the Carriak ship mat improved in the expansion due to playtesting and game balance feedback. Also, it's hard to be too upset when it comes to free print and play expansions...

Though I don't have any hard data on this, my sense is that many people didn't know about print and play expansion, and even fewer actually got the physical ship models, and even fewer painted their ship models. So, I certainly hope that the inclusion of the painted minis in the expansion will please many people. For the most dedicated fans who already painted their own 3D prints, hopefully they'll still appreciate the high production quality in the expansion and not be too upset with everyone else who didn't have them already. I'll admit that even I didn't have painted versions of the PnP...

I knew about the print and play ships, but I didn't want pnp components in my beautiful game. I do declare *adjusts monacle while puffing a cigar*

I thought the point you made was; You can't make certain people happy regardless?

Just to clarify, I'm not complaining; I think using the print&splay ships is a fair decision. I just found it interesting the internal conflict it caused me. With more time to dwell on it I believe I'll be happier that I have "official" ships in the game.

Having seen both the final production copy and the print and play version via my school's 3D printer, it's not even close for me... I look forward to hearing your thoughts after you get the physical expansion.
