FirstLight takes your players inside and outside the starship of their dreams! You're not limited to one ship design with static prop placement; with FirstLight you can create a starship of unlimited size and complexity. From hulking space Junkers , small renegade cargo ships to sprawling space stations.
Sliding doors show open and closed-door states.
Room and corridor covers that allow you to conceal each area of your ship as the play evolves. Remove room covers one at a time tracking player's movements and hiding crucial plot points.
Not only do we give you the foundations to create a gargantuan starship but we've loaded it with props. From crew quarter elements, bridge systems, computer terminals and exterior communications/ordinance props, it's all in here!
Not all miniatures are slim space starlets with no weapons. FirstLight takes into account that your minis may have gargantuan plasma rifles and other weapons which make moving in tight spaces an issue. We've created half-inch gutters on each side of the modular corridors to facilitate the weapon clad combat you are bound to enjoy!

If you are using miniatures and playing Star Wars, Star Trek, Traveller, Serenity, or Babylon 5 then buy this set immediately. First Light is a very versatile set, and can be used as a ship for the player characters to wander the spaceways with, as elements of a space station 'Five Miles Long', or as wreck found during a voyage of exploration.
My own build was of cabins and corridors for use in a Babylon 5 game - rather than making permanent connections I set it up for use as a soundstage, elements that could be put together for a specific scene, then rearranged later for a firefight down a lonely stretch of corridor.
And do look at the Addon pack - making the set a much better fit for both Star Wars and Star Trek.
Five out of five, even if I never did get to run my Babylon 5 game.

FirstLight was my first "major" build from WWG and despite its detail, the process to get it done was much easier than I ever expected. As with all of the WWG games I have, the instructions and the patterns were easy to understand. The modular design of the set really makes it easy to create ships of many different types.
I currently run a Serenity RPG, where the ship is almost like a player character, and the FirstLight Freighter was the crew's first ship. It really brought a new level to my game and the players really got attached to it.

I've been creating and building paper models for a few years now, and this is the first one I've actually paid money for. First off, the price was right...nice and affordable, to be sure. Second, the quality was excellent. My expectations were also high, but I wasn't disappointed. Nice parts designs, overall, great textures, nice modularity, expandability (is that even a word?), and kit-bash-ability (now that's definitely not a real word). Moving parts like doors, turrets and scanners, and transparency parts are always a delight and a sign of real creativity. I loved this set and haven't much that's negative to say....I found the tabs abit big throughout (easily rememdied by trimming), and some of the props and smaller bits designed to add detail to the set should have been more detailed. I found some of them to be a bit angular and clunky. Finally, a pet peeve of mine is inefficient layout; like when a single small part is alone on a page. More parts-cramming could definitley be done to save your customers on wasted white space on their valuable card stock. That's getting pretty nit-picky, I know, but I wanted to give some feedback. All in all, this is an excellent set of paper models at even a much higher price, and at the prices we pay, a truly excellent deal.

I had very high expectations for this set when I first saw it and then decided to buy it. I was actually stunned to find that my desire for accuracy, detail and flexability were exceeded by an amount that was almost daunting. My only problem with this set has been trying to decide how to use all the great features and it only got worse with the release of the Retrofit set with even more options.
The set is beautiful and easy to work with to create truly interesting gaming experiences. The modularity makes it reusable and flexible. A very pertinent comment is cost, for the price of this set you might be able to get one or two limited use resin or metal scenery accessories, with this set you get enough to build entire conplexes and the starships of your dreams.
Be sure to check out the build pictures on the WWG site for just a few of the visions so far realized.
