that actually looks quite cool, bit tougher card and its a usable alternative for the interim.

if he can do a sharlin then i think he could probably do just about any other ship out there, the g'quan is fairly flat in comparison.

Yeah, been ill since Monday, Halo 3 and Burnout Paradise can only keep me occupied for so long ;)

I was thinking of a Vorchan next (seems simple, just 2 pieces), then some Narn :lol:

I used card stock, double thickness cos I don't have a 2-sided printer. So its actually reasonably rigid. Good enough to be used in a game :)

these should be availible for new players and old players who want to try out new fleets.

stuff like this could keep the game afloat.

Its about 3" long... about the same as the metal mini.

Oh yeah I remember why I can't do other ships... don't have the graphics! I got the Sharlin from here. So really only Omega, Hyperion, Tinashi and Shadow Hunter are possible ATM. Unless anyone has good pics of other ships, which I'd appreciate greatly :)

Yeah that'd be cool, those pics came out really well! The angle depends on the ship, really... Vree mostly top-down I guess, since they are fairly 2-dimensional, although I do have an idea how to make them look good. Narn mostly top-down too, although it depends on the ship... T'Loth would need side and top. Same for Vorchan, side and top required to make both pieces. :)

I have scoured the net looking for these and all I have found are dead links, where did you get them?

Have you thought how to make an Avioki or a Raiders Strike Carrier like that? Have you seen the "Moongoose We Want 2E Counters" thread? Some ideas there, too. There is a box version and a link to Worldworksgames website, where is one paper fold version of a space mini.
