    ADB Releases Ships in June 2019!

    On June 6, 2019, ADB released a total of 50 new items to its shop on Shapeways, bringing it to over 1500 items. New to its store are some styles of ships designed to work within the recent price increase from Shapeways. You will find our first “kit” which will need some assembly. Never fear, we are still adding the ship as a one-piece miniature in case you prefer it that way. We are also releasing some of the smaller ships as multiples on a sprue. We hope you find them more affordable.

    The Federation gets two new versions of the Light Tactical Transport, one with a carrier pod and the other with a battle pod. The Battle Tug and their Tug with a carrier pod also show up. Their Light Dreadnought is now available, too. All of these are in both the “regular” (gridded) and “Fed Classic” (smooth body) versions. The Federation also gets its 285 Scale F-4 Ground-Based Fighter, Ground Assault Shuttle, and Heavy Assault Shuttle.

    The Romulans gain their SparrowHawk Gunboat Tender and their SparrowHawk Gunboat Tender+ (these are also known respectively as the SparrowHawk-E and SparrowHawk-E+). The "+" indicates it is a late-war “Cranked Arrow” design in the style of the Starline 2500 Romulan ships.

    The Gorns gain their 285 Scale G-8 “Lizard” Local Defense Fighter.

    The Tholians gain their Neo-Tholian Space Control Ship.

    The Orions get their empire-specific base station.

    The Andromedans are the test bed for sprued smaller ships since the motherships carry multiple ships with them. They get sprues of two and three Cobra Destroyers, two and three Viper Frigates, and a sprue with a Cobra and a Viper.

    The WYNs get their empire-specific base station. They also get their heavy cruiser as a one-piece ship and as a kit.

    In the Omega Octant the Ymatrians get their Rapier Destroyer Leader.

The Frigate and Destroyer are also available in a sprue of two ships.

    New Release in Our Shop on Shapeways!

    A new sort of space creature started showing up in the off-map "coreward" parts of the Alpha Octant. What became known as space tarantulas finally showed up in the well-mapped portions of the Federation toward the end of the General War. Gorns and Kzintis confirmed encounters with these creatures. Genetically related to space spiders (see Captain's Log #50), these space tarantulas may have been changed by the Radiation Zone. In some ways, they are certainly more deadly.

    Space tarantulas are nearly impossible to detect at over 40,000 kilometers away. When they are within 30,000 kilometers, they can cast a strand of web at a ship and then jump on the ship itself. The space tarantula then "kills" its prey by using its dozen legs and six fangs to damage the shields of the ship and then the ship. Even its web strands can damage the ship!

    Even worse for non-spacefaring worlds, the space tarantula's webs reflect light. When it builds its 5,000-kilometer radius nest for its eggs, it severely impacts the weather on the planet. Even worse, when the the space tarantula babies hatch, they will ravage the planet as they look for metal, which is what they "eat."

    The space tarantula is available in four scales: 7000 Scale (1/7000) which can be used as baby space tarantulas, Omni which can be used for the young space tarantulas, 3788 Scale (1/3788) which while scaled to accompany the 3788 Scale ships, can be used as young adult space tarantulas, and 3125 Scale (1/3125) which matches our 3125 Scale ships and can be used as the adult space tarantula.

    The space tarantula is available in a variety of materials. The creatures are unpainted, use standard flight stands available from many sources (the 7000 Scale version has a stand that is built in), and, while designed for gaming, make fine display pieces.

    Much thanks to Matthew Lawson for making the space tarantula come to life!
