Right from the start I knew my fighters were going to be mostly square looking, with box engines and a longer layout. I only created 3 styles, partly for some difference, partly because the latest updated game rules made one of the four fighter types relatively useless.
3D printed fairly well. A little paint and they matched the style of the commercial designs rather well.
shapeways shop as the Aggressor faction. Even if you're not into buying them, there are more photos and a spin-around animation with each. It acts as a free gallery too!
The ones I'm calling the Aliens are a mixed alliance of minor faction non-human creatures. They don't typically deploy large fleets of their own, instead banding together to form mixed fleets. I really enjoyed the opportunity to play with different styles here.The names have been changed to keep me out of trademark trouble!
