I was on the fence for the previous version, but at the end didn't get into STAW due to a number of reasons:
- Too many products to buy
- Starter set seemed limited
- Lack of quality / paint
- Scale issues
- Rules issues as raised here, mainly due to imbalance in point buy.

It seems that the new version/release model solves most of the issues, but I'm still wondering about the product quality - especially the miniatures and paint quality.
Any first hand experiences?

Also, I understand the sculpts are basically the same, so the same scale issues exists?

Oh, please, no.

Yet another not-to-scale discussion....

Agreed.

Paint quality is a lot better.

No new sculpts so far. Paint coloring and lines are much better.

Cards are better formatted and some old dud cards have been redone. Not retconned or errata’d, but new, better versions

Cards in the new starter box are apparently extra slim.

Can verify.
The Faction Packs and card packs are very nice quality, thick cards. Awesome!
The new Starter Kit, although the quality is fine, are definitely on the slim side.
I put them all in sleeves anyway, so it doesn't make much of a difference to me. Heck; them being slim might even make them easier to pick up/move.

The new paints are night and day. The old ones used drab colors and were occasionally sloppy (a good excuse to repaint them myself, though!) But the new paints are very crisp with deep, vibrant colors. The gold accents on the Romulan vessels look especially dope.

You know, I've never understood why people piss and moan over the scale of the ships when the base plates make a shuttle and a Warbird the same effective size.

Because it destroys any feeling of a star battle? Strange enough they made shuttles that can hold their own against dedicated warships.

No it doesn't, at least not for me. If they're going to make everything but 2 ships use the same size base plate the least they can do is make the eye candy big enough to show off.

I really like the new ship quality.

Was waiting for decent ships to jump into Star trek attack wing.

Having spent $5000 on x wing and maybe $1000 on armada what the heck.

Quality is good not x wing good but nice enough I will enjoy creating a great display with these ships as well as playing with them. DS9 and the Cube with sphere port will look great as well in the glass display case.

At this time many complaints on availability have your FLGS check with distributor should be available.

I really hope they follow through on these repaints I cant wait to buy $5000 worth of great Star trek ships as well.
