Sorry, I omitted specification due to perceived context. I was referring to the TFN DD.

The sculpting jargon is "gubbins" or "cruft". I wish I were skilled enough to sculpt a gibbon.

Yeah, the Shapeways restrictions and our desire to print in the lower res plastic does limit some topologies.

I knew what you meant. I was paying attention, unlike some people.... ;)

Ah so serious... I was simultaneously teasing you and subtly telling readers that there are lots if DD choices! ;)

Gubbins! What is a gibbon then?

And we have the option of limiting finely detailed ships to certain materials. I've been tempted to limit everything to acrylic or better already. The downside is it limits appeal to players who can't afford the higher cost, and are willing to accept the lower detail and the reduced cost.

Finally beat the FTs into submission. Black. And. White. How hard can that be?! Putting the finishing touches on my RPSN carriers, then it's on to the TFN. After I prime the TFN and KON SDs I recently purchased....

If I get a chance, I'll try to post some pictures this weekend. However, the weather's looking good and I have a LOT of yard work to catch up on....

Okay, RPSN carriers complete (4 of them). Just finished applying the paint to my 3 TFN light cruisers; I'll hit them with dull cote tomorrow. Started working on the pair TFN heavy cruisers.

She Who Must Be Obeyed is out of town this week, so I think I'll tackle the DIY photo box and try to get some photos posted this week. So many distractions....

When you order from Shapeways, do the miniatures come with stands?

No, they do not. The minis normally come in zip lock baggies wrapped in bubble wrap and placed in a box.

Flying stands from Games Workshop work, the ones that come with Tau drones.

FYI, Tau drones work well for BS...

LOVE THE TERRAN FGs!

Received my latest Shapeways shipment earlier this week. I always crack up when I receive a 1 cubic foot box containing less than 6 ounces of miniatures.

The Terran FGs are outstanding, as are the newest FTs. Added some BBs and SDs to the collection.

Thanks for making these!
