A death star. You're making a a reduced scale model of the death star.

...that's what would get my reaction anyway. Looking forward to the surprise. Hopefully I could use that code tonight...

Here come the transports!!

I don't think even the most hardcore Star Wars fan would know them all. But here you have them, for any occasion or replacement of Rogues and Villains.

Here you have a guide for all of them:



Transports Set IV

(The Witte Gunship appeared on a cutscene for Star Wars: Rebellion, so I decided to call it Witte Gunship for Scott Witte, the creator of the game)

Transports Set V

Transports Set VI

I'm too much of an Imperial equipment user to snap these up. But you know where they would be awesome? RPG guys, who are pushing these around to represent their spaceship on, oh, I dunno, the Rebellion map?

Also anyone looking to make some dioramas with small ships are going to love these. If I had a reason for them, I'd grab a few too, just not for Armada.

They're wonderful Mel, keep it up!

Here is a Micromachines Set of Rogue One. The ships that haven't been released officially:

https://www.shapeways.com/product/UA44H5DES/rogue-one-mmch-s...


Bit piece of trivia. The other day I realised that the ramp from the TIE Reaper is the same ramp as Krennic's Shuttle. Considering how these movies are shot I'm pretty sure at some point this was meant to be Krennic's shuttle in the beach (As we see in the trailer, Krennic was meant to be on the beach). That would also explain why we didn't see anything about the TIE Reaper until the movie was out, because it was a very late adition.

Nonsense, Sienar fleet systems obviously decided to cut some corners and re-use the boarding ramp from the prototype T-3c for their TIE Reaper line.

Shapeways is about to do something shitty. And apparently I can't say anything about it. I would recomend anyone who wants groups of ships in FUD to order them during them during the next two weeks. Squadrons and things like that.

Now's the time to snap up the TIE Vanguard, Scout, et all pack.

This sucks. Much of the material you offer Mel is great.

No, sets with several parts will cost much more (while individual ships will probably cost less). I will have to add sprues to the ships which sometimes make them fail the printing process and always leaves them with the sprue cut when you get then at home.

I'd be okay with sprues, to be honest, since I tend to snip the pegs anyways.

Ok. So, Shapeways just sent me a list of all my models with the old price and the new price. If we count in percentage of models I'm getting 54% of my models cheaper and 43% of my models more expensive. Which apparently sounds nice.

The problem is that the increasing models increase much more than the decreasing models decrease. And right now I get a mean of 12$ more for each model in FUD.

I'm going to post a more detailed list here in a while but so you get an idea, the sets that include 8 or more ships will increase a lot and I will have to add sprues to them. Curiously the models that include 2-6 ships are quite Ok, with very slight increases of 1$-6$ So I might leave them without the sprues to avoid printing issues (Besides, the price of the sprue material might be worse that the price increase without them).

More importantly: Large ships increase a lot. A LOT. And I can't fix or solve that. To a point where some of them will disappear as FUD. From Armada you get models like the Mon Calamaris, the Lucrehulk Battleships and Destroyer, the Golans, the Venator, the Assault Frigate Mk I Type VI (For some weird reason just that AFmkI), the Ton Falk Escort Carrier...

From X-Wing we will lose things like the Sith Fury Interceptor, the Lady Luck, the Sentinel Landing Craft, the Defender Class Corvette, the Pulsar Skate, the Rogue Shadow, XS Light Freighter, Jan's YT-200 Otana...


So... If you ever want any large ship in FUD you better order it before the 22nd.



Curiously, Stands will decrease a lot... Ironically I don't charge anything for myself with stands :D

I'm afraid to ask, that includes the Super Star Destroyer as well?

So anyone wanting it should snap it up before it increases?

Damn. I've been waffling about it for the longest time and trying to save up for it, because it's hefty, and I want to do a special Battle of Endor game somehow.

*big sigh*

It sounds like you are getting nailed by the new support material costs. You may be able to reorient some of the ships to get the cost down. Unfortunately large ships with a lot of appendages may be a lost cause without slicing them into pieces. It's probably not worth revisiting them.
