    Default Third Party Stuff.

    So, came across this on Amazon.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Star-Wars-Mi...0GBATN94BXD7WM

    Looks very nice, and certainly more interesting than the card markers.

    Anyone else found cool third party additions?

    Check their ebay shop, they have wrecks for all the ships that leave them and asteroids of properly shaped bases!

    I like that, doing 3rd party bits right. Only thing I could see being problematic is if they took castings from an FFG corvette to make the pieces.
    Ask not the EldarGal a question, for she will give you three answers, all of which are puns and terrifying to know. Back off man, I'm a feminist. Ia! Ia! Gloppal Snode!

    Well, can't quite afford a sample this week - I've got £50ish until me cheque clears, but I think I'll be getting me a set. They look the very dab to set off a game nicely.

    Probably the Rebel Transport one - it just suits it if you ask me.

    They do look very much like castings taken and broken up

    Mel Miniatures on Shapeways:

    3D printed ships at the right scale (at least close enough) for all kinds of stuff, including (just on the front page alone): CloakShape Fighter, YT-2000 Otana, Chiss Clawcraft, The Force Awakens X-Wing, Eta-2 Jedi Interceptor, R-41 Starchaser, Clone Y-Wing, Ebon Hawk, TIE Predator, T-Wing, Mk VI Interceptor, Scimitar Bomber, Sith Fighter, Slave II, N-1 Naboo Starfighter, K-Wing, Raven's Claw, Skipray Blastboat, TIE Droid, SoroSuub Yacht, TIE Scout, and Inquisitor's TIE Advanced.

    There's lots of other pages. If you wanted to add more ships into X-Wing, that's the way to do it. Want to use X-Wing scale ships for doing some Star Wars RPG space battles? Well, that's not a problem.

    For Armada, so far they've got Vindicator-class cruiser, Interdictor cruiser (called an "Immobilizer" for some reason), Gozanti ships, and a bunch of squadrons.

    Also bombs, satellites, cargo containers, other stuff.

    People show off painted stuff from him on the X-Wing Repaints Facebook group all the time, they look pretty good.

    Yeah, Mel Miniatures definitely has it down. None of the stuff comes in color, but that's alright. Got my eye on that Ebon Hawk. Would love to use it as a count as Falcon.

    I'm really digging the proper shaped bases for the ship debris it allows you to use 3D terrain and still play the standard rules, brilliant.

    Yarp.

    Gonna take the plunge this week and order some up. I'm gonna go with the Rebel Transport and the basic Asteroids.

    Depending on when that cheque clears my bank account, order will go in tomorrow or possibly Friday, and I'd hope to have them Monday - expect a review!

    Pow!

    Basic asteroids ordered, should have them some point next week.

    Keep your eyes out for a review, and feel free to post questions in the meantime,
