I have just bought Blockade Runner but replaced the cardboard ships with my own resin cast models of 5 generic blockade runners. I have also cast some metal funnels that do not fall out and are in proportion with the models . The ships have been spray painted in a colour code for each speed like a previous contributor has done.

Black = 2,
Grey = 3,
white = 4,

I have also painted the funnels in more realistic colours for each player,

Plain yellow,
Yellow with a black top,
Plain Black,
Black with a white band,
Plain white,
White with a black band,
Red with a black top

The models really enhance the look of the game and I will post some pictures if someone can tell me how this is done . Anyone else interested in these models can contact me via this forum .

I'm interested, too.

I had considered making some out of Fimo clay, but concluded I wasn't skilled enough to make presentable ones.

It looks like I am not the only one who prefers to play board games with models then.

I run a small part time casting company but have always been interested in blockade runners having collected books on them for years .

I will see if I have time to get a few models painted and put some pictures on the forum this weekend .

I know it sounds a little pedantic but I have also generated a new set of ship cards that have pictures of the actual ships named on them . Almost all of the ships cards in the game have the wrong pictures on the cards and from a purist point of view I find this a bit irritating considering what a good job Numbskull have made with the game in general.

Tchuss.
