These mighty vessels once boldly plied new space, often commanding smaller exploration fleets on random jump expeditions. Unlike most ships, whole sections of superstructure can be swapped out for specialist modules, including weapons, storage, hangars, refineries, factories, cores and even vast bio-domes to seed empty planets with Earth’s fauna and flora.
This set contains a Resistance Dreadnought, able to be built as either a Pathfinder, Explorer, or Coloniser class, depending on your need! The Pathfinder is the smallest of the three, and you should be able to build 2 in one box. The Explorer is in the middle, and the Coloniser is the largest Dreadnought we've ever made!
With 68 pieces in this set (not including 2 Dropfleet bases and a bunch of MDF spacers to help with construction), you're able to build your Dreadnought your way. This is by far the most modular space ship kit we've ever made, and probably the modular space ship kit in the world.
There are almost infinite ways to build your Dreadnought, with rules that encourage freedom of choice. You can have a nicely balanced ship with a mixture of launch assets and weapons, or half a dozen torpedoes. You can take all broadsides or loads of turrets - the choice is yours!
Note that due to the size and modularity of this kit it is only recommended for advanced modellers. Some parts will need heating and bending to fit perfectly straight and slight gaps might need filling. And - let's face it - there are so many parts, there's going to be a fair bit of planning and trial and error involved!
Contains 1-2 resin miniatures and 2 plastic Dropfleet Commander bases and flight stands.
Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled. Other ships and gaming mats are for scale purposes only.
