Black Sun Wars Starter Set Released

Photobucket

The first release for Black Sun Wars is the Human faction starter spaceship set.

Buy Now at RPGnow.com, safe secure downloads.

The set uses a modular building system, scalable printing and multiple colour variations for most of the models that allows you to create a near infinite amount of ship variations.

Why modular?
We specifically designed the sets to be modular so that you can truly have a unique fleet, no matter how many friends or gamers own the set, we can guarantee that no two builds will be the same. Its real simple to use, all the components are created from mostly basic shapes that can be assembled in any way you see fit. You can even mix and max different ships components, for example just out of the Battleship we were able to create one large frigate and a battleship and used some of the left over pieces to add weapons to the freighter set.

Not a kit basher or modular player?
No problem at all, each ship comes with full instructions on how to assemble it to resemble the original design. But trust us…. You will very soon be printing it out and modding it because its just sooo easy to totally get creative and unique with your builds.

Is there a Black Sun Wars gaming system?
Not yet, we will shortly launch a kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds we need to develop the Black Sun Wars system as well as 3 extra factions.

The Starter set contains:
1x Battlecruiser
2x Frigates
1x Freighter
1x assortment of fighters
1x Stand and assembly instructions

It does not look like a lot but due to the modular nature of ships there is thousands upon thousands of assembly, colour and size variations.

A weapon and utility pack will follow shortly with the weapon stat cards.

Why is the frigates centred and only one per page?
This allows you to scale the model using just your printer settings, this increases the modular components available to build new ships.

    “for example just out of the Battleship we were able to create one large frigate and a battleship and used some of the left over pieces to add weapons to the freighter set.”

    Is there a battleship, or did you mean battlecruiser?

      To view layers:
      1. Go to View (in the top navigation bar).
      2. Select Navigation Panels
      3. And then Layers.

      The Layers panel should now open up. CLick on the top layer to open up all of the layers.

      Now just select the layers You want to print…

    So, how does this all work? I pay for a download of all the components to make the ships, then i print them out as many times as i want?

    Also, would i need any special programme to add the colour schemes

      yes thats correct, you receive a PDF that can be printed as many times as you want. You cut them out, add some glue and time… and voila ;-). You will need Adobe Acrobat 6 or higher to see and use the layers.

    Nice work on these, I just picked them up last night and love those little fighters.

    Any plans to do an equivalent alien type fleet of modular bits and pieces?
