Romulan ships are a tricky thing to get right, but this one's got everything where it should be.

Let me explain: Ever since the iconic Romulan D'deridex class warbird appeared on screen, it's been a hard act to follow in the fandom. For one thing, it's so big. And they only ever appear in fleets of identical warbirds, all either armed differently or something. So the concept of a smaller Romulan ship, for a while, was hard to imagine. The Romulan scout ship and science vessel seen in TNG, and the shuttle in DS9, implied that more than once, these vessels would have to go to war with escorts.

In their designs for the stock A2, the designers gave us some splendid designs (like the Shadow and Draconarius), others that were boring (the Shrike and Phoenix), and others that simply made us cringe (the Venator).... but the Griffin was a design that both looks and acts the part of a Romulan vessel in-game. Psionic special weapons and myotronic stupidities aside, the Romulans are probably one of the most poorly put-together races in stock A2. But the Griffin suits the needs of the Star Empire.

Ash's latest release, as seen here, takes the Griffin in directions we've all wanted it to be taken: stylistically, the texture and the model earn this Griffin release some major respect. And best of all, even though Ash doesn't include buildbuttons or wireframes, all you're doing is overwriting a stock model, so it's no big deal, relatively speaking.
