More variations for the original 2014 first edition Griff Boa

What it does:

  • Leaves the prototype intact; No changes made
  • Defines four different-coloured turrets to be used by v2 and v3. V3 is given turret colours that (sort of) match the running lights of a submarine. Easy enough to snip out if you don't like the results.
  • Defines two new versions of the ship, as specified by Cmdr Wyvern and LittleBear (with some very minor tweaks).
  • See here for details (CheeseRedux, 2014).

  • Griff Krait - a similar radical redesign - and has lore on the difference between the traditional Krait and the radical redesign, which may well apply to the Griff Boa
