File Description

This is the beautifully crafted Romulan Terix class warbird. The design, by Atolm, has been given life by Pepperman and brought into Armada in glorious Romulan style. This is the kind of style that I think the Romulans richly deserve and they really have been given it to them through this model. As a warbird, expect it to be slow, cumbersome and take a lot of resources to build...but expect it to completely balance that by throwing disruptors and plasma torpedoes across space towards the enemy fleets.

It's been placed in the "High Poly" section though, as it does have a fairly large poly count, coupled with some high textures (1024 resolution) whilst this ship will look beautiful in game, it might tax some of the lower end systems, so do be warned of that. However, can you REALLY resist the looks (to kill) of the ship below? I know I can't. Romulan fans download now. Non-Romulan fans, here's some target practice...download now!
