I think the crux of this ruling needs to be a demonstration of parity and fairness. If you want to use a ship that isn't in the 2010 compendium, or endorsed within the current specialist arms forum, then please post their stats within this forum or a separate thread, with some explanation of how you see them fitting into the fluff and general balance of the game. This will mean that you can experiment with new and exotic designs, which I think is quite in keeping with the lore, but also gives everyone a chance to see what they will be up against. I would prefer it if currently accepted designs were used so 2010 is to be the norm, but other ships are acceptable as long as you can demonstrate their fairness (as far as possible) and also post their stats openly within this forum. Is everyone content with this?
That seems pretty reasonable I think. It should hopefully be fairly clear whether additional ships are balanced or broken as anything!
