To go with the game, Brigade Models produce a small range of 1/1200th spaceships, of which I have bought several. The pic to the right shows my collection; the grey ships on the left are Russian, the burgundy in the middle are Austro-Hungarian and the 3 pink are not Iron Stars ships at all! They are from Brigade Models Bug Spaceship range, but I got them as opponents for my Iron Stars ships, but haven't got around to creating ship profiles for them. The single grey ship is an undercoated upside down ship from Brigade's aeronef range, but I can't remember which nationality it is. I'm intending to use it as a merchant/passenger ship for scenarios.
Just as a note all the ships have been 'dipped' and then a coat of satin varnish applied.
I have been asked about the basing method I've used before. The vertical part of the stand is a piece of wire from a coat hangar, the bottom of which is glued into the base of a normal (black) flying stand. That base is glued to an MDF hex - 50mm flat-to-flat for the larger ships, and 40mm f-t-f for the smaller ships. The hex base is then built up with polyfilla to the flying base.
This basing gives - IMO - a solid, stable base to the ship so they definitely won't fall over.
I've also created some data cards for the ships (pic to the right) that should make the game play pretty quickly.
