3D Printed Ships???

Recommended Posts

I guess I don't see much cause for having ship models, seeing as everyone starts with one of the same two ship types.  If ships are meant to be the player markers, the first third of the game is going to be extra confusing as everyone is using the same ships and they'll need to be distinctly painted in ways that make them stand out and associate with a player.

Though I've thought about using Imperial Assault / Legion figures for the characters, then having a hole drilled into each base where an Armada freighter and flight peg can be stuck so a little ship is with the character (or a magnetized base where the ship could be attached).  There are Armada figures for the HWK, YT1300, YV666, Firespray, Aggressor, and Lancer. You'd only need to make or 3D print (Mel's Miniatures) the Luxury Shuttle and Aphra's Heavy Loader.

The Rogues and Villains Expansion for Armada works great.

The Stands have a slot where you can include your characters image card along with the ship. Thats an easy way to differentiate each players markers.

It works really well.

That's pretty darn slick!  Good discovery.

I've settled on LEGO Minifigs for my player markers, but if I hadn't I would probably try this.

He made the whole set of ships available, or just the ships that do not come in Armada Expansions.

Here are the links so you can check them out and purchase them:

Thanks for all the research!

I think the hardest part is going to be finding models that are small enough so that they don't dominate or clutter up the board too much.

Im starting to think maybe the best thing to use for the Patrols are the provided tokens.

But again, thanks for the research... I'm sure someone will want to use them!

Its super easy to scale them. I just need to decide on a stand then then throw the ones I want on top. Probably should have a way of holding the patrol token or just put the stats on the base. The biggest issue is really if you have a FDM printer and getting something armada fighter small to print okay.

Mel's miniatures has some of the patrol ships as well, but mostly in other sets.

 

Perhaps @melminiatures could be persuaded to whip up a patrols set to go along with the player ship sets, with some scaled-down versions of the larger ships?

Hutts:

M3 Scyk (×3) in this set along with two other fighter types: https://www.shapeways.com/product/M9E7Q99YF/armada-hutt-fighter-set?optionId=57226041

Kihraxz (×3) in this set along with two other fighter types: https://www.shapeways.com/product/DF2GTQNCD/armada-black-sun-fighters-set?optionId=57226058

Tl-1200 : missing

C-ROC here, maybe too large scale: https://www.shapeways.com/product/QHJ528HEK/armada-c-roc-gozanti-cruiser

 

Black sun:

Z-95: Use armada squadrons.

Star Viper (×12) in this set, but so many... : https://www.shapeways.com/product/DK2FH2VJA/armada-12x-starviper?optionId=56461365

Neutron star bulk cruiser here, but too large scale: https://www.shapeways.com/product/JUEWTUGWK/armada-neutron-star-bulk-cruiser

Kalevalan star yacht /First light: missing.
