I recently acquired some planets and ships from shapeways.

They look cool! May they be involved in many a bloody conflict. May the planets see the winking of C-beams glittering as fleets clash in their orbits.

You have to admire someone so dedicated. Nice but too much money for me

There's a 2300AD Suffren on there too, based off a 3d-model built by Ian Stead from the deckplans I did for the new Mongoose 2300AD Ships of the French Arm. That ALpha and Beta are built from Ian's models too.

The planets you done or bought? These off Shapeways as well?

Very neat! Now if only someone did the Kafer ground vehicles . . .

In 15mm, of course!

Grimm, They are from shapeways. There are several different suppliers and a wide range of prices and sizes. One page has some 4 inch (101mm) fictional planets that are very nice, but too large and expensive. If they had been about 1 inch (25mm) the size and price would have been okay.

Also, click on the materials as there is a choice of three types with the most expensive shown.

I wish the planets were a little bigger. I am using 1.5" hexes so maybe a 5 cm planet might work.
