Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 1) – Hasslefree Miniatures

I’ve been looking for some character miniatures for Battlestar Galactica for quite some time now.  Nobody is specifically licensed to  sell them, but I’ve ordered some from several different companies which I think will work quite well. Some are obviously designed to resemble BSG characters, others just happen to look close enough to use. I’m …

Corsec Bases and Rods with tweaks

Over the years I’ve tried out several different types of stands and bases for my miniatures, but I think I’ve finally settled on the using the Omni-Stand system from Corsec Engineering.  What I like about it is that it is very versatile, especially when combined with a few accessories from a fine tool store like …

Shapeways 3D Printed Miniatures

I decided to give 3D printing a try via Shapeways, so I ordered two batches of ships from them, mostly in the cheapest format, “White, Strong, Flexible”.  This post is a listing of the ships that I ordered for reference, I’ll describe how they worked out with painting in future posts. The “1/270” scale is …

Battlestar Galactica Starfighter Shipyards Miniatures – Part 2

I did some more work on my very tiny Battlestar Galactica miniatures.  I primed the rest of the ships and got the TOS Vipers and both sets of Cylons painted.   I used Tamiya Fine Surface Primer on them, which worked very well, and then I used some Sharpie Extra Fine Paint pens to do …

Battlestar Galactica Starfighter Shipyards Miniatures

I recently ordered some very tiny Battlestar Galactica Fighter Minatures from Starfighter Shipyards. For Vipers I ordered the “TOS Vipers”, “Scorpion Early TOS Viper”, and I also got what looks like the “TOS Cobra Interceptor” although I don’t recall ordering that one and the page didn’t list it as being available at the time. For Cylons I …

BSG Miniatures – Cloud Nine

The next miniature up for painting is Cloud Nine, which is from the Re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series.  It is a massive luxury liner that has a huge pressurized dome attached to the main ship.  The dome provides a realistic simulation of a planetary surface including an artificial holographic sky.  It is similar in concept to …

BSG Miniatures – Battlestar Columbia

My set of miniatures included two labeled “Columbia Class Battlestar”.  It seems that this is referring to the ship in the BSG – Razor episodes. The Columbia in that episode is similar to the Galactica but has additional armour plating where the Galactica has ribs. It also has blue strips and markings rather than red, …

BSG Miniatures – The Galactica (Reimagined)

I’ve now primed my fleet of miniatures and am ready to start painting. I figured I would start with a fairly easy one, and one that I had a good reference to work off of, so I picked the Galactica from the Reimagined series. It looks like the mold was almost a direct copy of …

Battlestar Galactica Ravenstar Studios Miniatures Fleet

I ordered a bunch of Battlestar Galactica Miniatures from Ravenstar Studios quite some time ago, a couple of Fleet packs and a few individual ships.  I’ve finally sorted them out and matched the miniatures to their names.  Most of them haven’t been touched yet with the exception of one of the new Cylon Baseships and …
