I sure don't doubt this, I just find it annoying to play against one race that is using anothers ships. The Reman were outcasts of the Empire for so long, and now, all of a sudden, the Romulans are allowing the Reman to use their brand new Warbird designs? Doesn't suit.

Has that been clarified anywhere?

I'd actually surmise that Remans really never had their own ships before the explosion of their planet.
The Scimitar was a Reman design.

This is why I believe we'd get the True Way, which would also provide some more variety than a "true" Dominion which would be basically just JH, Vorta and possibly changelings.
would be incorrect as the Jem Hadar passing through (or rather, leaving) the wormhole are the remnants of a Dominion that was allied to the Cardassian, and at war with the Federation. Their technology would be out of date for starters; they've been stuck in limbo for a decade or two.

I think I would agree.

yes you can still identify her but given the...detail on the ship compared to a proper depiction you might guess how much better Reman ships would look if they hadn't been drawn in the comics first.
The problem I think is conversion. It's easier to make a good looking design look bad (TNG film > comic) but to take a ship from a comic and make it look worthwhile, I think is a harder job. Not impossible by a long shot, but not the most logical choice. They'd be better off creating brand spanking new designs.

Ta ~ I know of it because it was released (as an addon) for Armada2 and Bridge Commander (part of the FileFront Network).

Here's hoping.
