Now that the price of Ultra Detail is lower than acrylic, I got a TFN SD in FUD so I can compare to the white & flexible. I've got about half of the test miniatures primed, but I'm kind of hesitant to paint them. Since I'm pretty new at this, I'm afraid I'll make them look stupid...

Don't be. If I've learned anything in all my years of painting it's this: You can always paint over it. ;)

I'm not too sure about the color scheme I've chosen for my Terran fleets. I'm doing the CAs now. I figure I'll finish the fleet then see if the scheme grows on me.

I've always heard the ultimate paint problem resolver was a soak in PineSol.

With plastic miniatures, this will dissolve them alright! heh

Buuuuut. It gave me an idea for battle damage...

Picked up a TFN/Orion QSR plus TFN Battlecruiser in FUD and really like them.

Kudos to the modeller on these, I love the retro, original counter look to the models.
The first batch painted up so nicely I just placed another order with Shapeways to fill out the rest of my TFN line.

Since there is only one model of CV the Rigilian version will have to do.

Forum member otterman is the genius behind the models, and he uses the artwork created by Jack Southerland... the original Starfire art out of the products, as his touchstone.

More designs are coming! And now that FUD is so much cheaper, I'm going to need to build some fleets too.

If anyone would like to showcase their painted Starfire minis on the Starfire facebook page or would be delighted to see them used as samples on the Shapeways pages, let me know. Any pictures will work on FB, but pics for Shapeways will mostly need to be one miniature type at a time. Any material will work, I can show samples per mini and material.

I'm just hoping someone who is a better painter than me likes this idea...

Edit: for that matter, on the FB page I would also put pictures of your games too, whether counters or minis of any kind.

Edit: yes, I meant Starfire games

I'll be posting my ships however I'm not the world's best painter.
I plan on showing them off on my FB page and Youtube channel All Miniatures Great and Small https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPwdmOFNX7u2-LHm8FJkKjQ
