Inspired by Antti Autio's Xeno Project, I am looking at making a large order from em4 to save on shipping costs.

I am looking for nine individuals that would be willing to pay an estimated $50 to have these shipped to their door (in the continential USA anyway).

This would get you:

12 sprues of the item SFP8 as seen as the bottom of the page: http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/Science_Fiction.html#a...

All shipping costs are included in the price. If you wish to order more than one set, figure to deduct about $10 per each additional set. (2 sets = $90, 3 = $130, etc)

At this point I am just sticking a toe in the water to see if there is an interest. If not, no big deal. If so, we can figure out payment arrangements and get these ordered.

Prices are estimates & they may shift up or down depending on how the shipping prices shake out.

* I will be going on a cruise from Jan 13-21, so I will be completely off of the Internet and BGG until I return.

Mebbe. Subscribing to this thread anyhow. Fiddy bucks is probably out of my price range, unfortunately, but those ships do look splendid.

I had those ships in my old copy of Silent Death.
Aaahhh... good times.

(Have yet to get my hands on a copy of Eclipse).

Anybody notice that these are the same ships that come with Eminent Domain?

If you mean the original Eclipse ships (and not the replacements the OP wants), then yes.

Each sprue has 12 unique ships, and the buy-in is for 12 of these sprues. How does that match up with the ship distribution on the game?

In Eclipse there are 8 intercepters, 4 cruisers & 2 dreadnought's per faction. So... 84 ships in total.

12 x 12 = 144

Why the disparity? See the Xeno Project

Ah, okay, so it's going to take a bit of modelling work.

Oh so tempting ... I looked into having some custom ones printed with Shapeways and I just can't justify the cost. These are the only reasonable ships out there, I swear! thinking about it...

If it weren't for the modelling and painting, I'd be very interested. But as it is now, I'll stick to plan B and hope to get a find of TI3 space docks somewhere. Then I can use the TI3 miniatures with Eclipse.

Plan C, BTW, is hoping that the enormous success of the game will inspire the designers (or someone else) to publish their own line of ships.

They look like the exact same sculpts to me, but painted in garish gold and silver.

Possibly, I didn't look at size/price very close. I just knew I had seen those same ships before, and found them in my Favorites.

Kinda the same here. PAINTING would be fine. You can always pick off paint & repaint. But cutting up 3D ships and trying to sand the edges and glue them into something that looks nice... I don't know if I want to spend $50 on that potential disaster, lol.

Kelly,

I might be interested, but part of it depends on WHEN you are placing the order. (I actually may not use them for Eclipse, but they are cool looking minis).

Just as an aside....I went ahead and ordered 12 sprues. Shipping was reasonable...I believe the whole thing came to about $60ish. They shipped the order quickly and it only took 8 or 9 days to arrive via Royal Mail/USPS.

That is close enough at $60 to not bother with a large order. I'm leaning towards making due with the base ships at this point.
