Those ships are going to be huge tabletop items . . .

Thank you! I didn't realize that this game was out yet. I will have to do some more research.

Those look good.

Wish there were details on the size and price of the Cylon Base Ships.

"This game will be compared to X-Wing, since they are both space ship battles, but their approaches are very different.
BSG SB is more focused on piloting of each craft in a scenario based play where X-Wing is almost solely squad based combat. Each ship in BSG SB has a unique deck of 22 maneuver cards to choose from making the ships movement unique to itself and allowing for a very expansive selection of maneuvers, unlike X-wing where all ships uses the same 17 templates for movement."

"Excellent game based on a clever and brilliant system. The level of detail on the miniatures, most of which can only be appreciated under magnification, is absolutely amazing."

"Beautiful miniatures (best pre-painted I've ever seen) and components that really capture the feel of the TV series. Rules can be somewhat tricky to grasp at first but once mastered become much easier to use and provide a great experience of space combat. Starter box is a great value with enough ships for 2-4 players with campaign and experience rules to create customized pilots who improve as you play."

Detail on Viper. Apparently, this is out of the box, not a repaint.

More Viper detail.

I like the raider paint scheme, and those little control boxes look neat too.

I'd believe it, looks like a rubber stamp.
