Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 5) – Nexus Miniatures

The fifth stop on my tour of miniature companies was Nexus Miniatures. I finally found some great miniatures for Cylons, and as a bonus, some really good Viper Pilots as well. At the time there was an “Ancient Enemies” Deal on, which isn’t available at the time of this posting but the individual figures are, …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 4) – Tin-Soldier.com

The fourth company I ordered miniatures from was Tin-Soldier.com.  At this point I was looking more for something I could use as Cylons rather than humans.  I had ordered some Star Wars Super Battle Droids which I thought would work okay for the Re-imagined Cylons in a pinch, but wasn’t really happy with them.  I …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 3) – Reaper Miniatures

The third stop on my quest for Battlestar Galactica characters was Reaper Miniatures which has a huge selection of miniatures for all genres. I accidentally ordered one miniature on it’s own instead of adding them all to my cart and then placing the order.  I found out their site is a little odd when it …

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 …
