La Petite Mort
« on: May 11, 2011, 04:52:29 PM »
This is a ship created by a long time friend and gamer in my group. We will be using it in the game this weekend at Border Wars in Kansas City.

superb ship!

just in case you didn't know, 'petite mort' means orgasm... well maybe in this case it more about a gaming climax ;-)

Indeed... lol

Le or La, it really doesnt matter when the end is near, or how one should put it ;)

On another note, the ship is looking great, and thanks for sharing! :)
