    Top center ship seems to resemble the 6.2 Km cruiser, though they blended it with a Mon Cal cruiser... If that is true, it debunks the winglets that the Warlords mod put on it.

    the problem is the 6km cruiser is incredibly slender hulled and has some sort of ventral bulb, of all the pictures in dark empire the 6km cruiser is one of the most rigourously defined aside from the allegiance just based on the detail visible in the art.


    for some reason that design of the eclipse really appeals to me, it looks excessivly draconian and definatly evil.

    Well, I just bought the Thrawn Trilogy Sourcebook from WEG, and I have to say that it is awesome. It includes all the pictures, information, diagrams, and stuff from the three individual sourcebooks (HTTE, DFR, LC). There is an interesting picture of the Imperial fleet that I think may shed some light on Thrawn's forces. It is not the one that we discussed earlier which shows a Strike Cruiser to be small, nor is it the diagram showing the line formation of Thrawn's personal fleet.

    This piece of artwork shows a vast Imperial armada, including at least thirty Star Destroyer arrowheads. The best part is that nearly all of them are clearly ISD's, not Interdictors or VSDs. This is a great shot that gives us a idea about the scope of the forces Thrawn commanded. If I had a scanner I would try to post it, but I do not.

    Suffice it to say, I am going to look at the pic closely later tonight and get a count on each type of ship. Then I will post it here and let you all know what I found.

    Both E-Bay and Amazon.com's used books section have most of the old WEG sourcebooks available. Personally, the best ones are the Truce at Bakura, The Trawn Trilogy, and Dark Empire sourcebooks. Those three contain more interesting information than all the others combined.

    Amazon has it? Thanks for the heads up... Better to buy there than to bid for the damn book.

    What do the Adventure Journals contain? I saw them on Ebay sometimes... rarely though.

    I have the Dark Empire source book and Cracken's threat dossier already. But finding the Thrawn trilogy source book is a pain. The Truce of Bakura source book can be found easily though.
