Mercury: Starship Map Poster & Miniature

Recommended Posts



About this project


The goal of this ultra-fast campaign is to print an original poster, cast a fleet of matching miniatures, and get them into your hands before Halloween. Digital documents and supporting images will be provided to fully detail the ships and their interiors.   

Free U.S. shipping. International adds $12 for one item or $24 for the combo (because international postage doubles after 8 ounces). Rewards will be shipped using USPS first class mail from Pittsburgh, PA.


The deck plans are provided as a full color, 24x36 inch, double-sided poster. They are drawn to a 1 inch equals 5 ft scale and have a 1-inch grid built into the floor – perfect for Starfinder and d20 RPGs. Note that the price of posters and miniatures have been reduced from previous campaigns. Though production costs have remained the same, my hope is that these new prices will get the ships onto new tables and grow our community over time. So please spread the word and bring more people on board if you can!


The matching miniature was created as a digital model, 3D printed at the highest resolution, and made into a mold. From that, Trollforged Miniatures spun out the ships using their proprietary resin and professional techniques. The result is a highly detailed miniature, approximately 2inches long, ready to paint and play (miniatures are sold unpainted). A hexagonal 1-inch, clear acrylic flight stand is included.


Mercury is from issue #8 of "Future Armada". Every pledge level includes a digital copy of this issue, which details the interior and presents sample stats for the ship and crew. It also includes a write up on the Remora boarding craft and Valkyrn interceptor. Maps are provided on printable pages in both color and black and white. The digital reward also includes giant images of the poster for use online or via projector.

Talarion is a brand new design and will be featured in an upcoming chapter of the 0-hr "Armada Codex" devoted to refits of classic designs. A preview of the chapter will be included, as will Starfinder stat sheets for both Mercury and Talarion.


If you would like to order multiple copies of the poster or miniature manually increase your pledge accordingly. When I send out the surveys at the end of the campaign you can specify what the extra money is for and I'll bundle everything together. If you have pledged for the $26 combo, then a second Kintaro poster is $17 and additional miniatures are $6. Otherwise posters are $20 and miniatures are $9. International orders only pay shipping once ($12 for just miniatures, $24 for posters or mixed orders.).

If you would like to order merchandise from my previous campaigns, please visit my website ( 0-hr.com ). You can order directly there, or check the prices and then increase your pledge here and let me know the details in the survey at the end of the campaign. 


As a thank you to everyone for supporting the campaign, I will create a new rendered image of Mercury or Talarion when we hit $3000, $4000, etc.. These images will be included with the digital reward files exclusively for backers.

      got a 3D printer, or access to a friends, or one at a library or university this might be for you


      With this project I will be bring you a collection of Sci-Fi Vehicles and Artillery to be used in whatever tabletop game you choose. With more vehicles being added as stretch goals are hit. All sculpts will be supplied as 3d printable STL files.

      Why am I doing this project?

      My passions are sculpting, 3d printing and wargames. I wanted to be able to field the sort of armys I wanted without breaking the bank. So I started sculpting the sort of models I needed. After sculpting quite a range I decided to bring it to Kickstarter to enable me to further expand the range.

      I have a Patreon page were I produce sculpts for my backers each month as well as a website where you can see some of my past work. So you can be sure I have the knowledge required to deliver printable files, and can be trusted to deliver them in a time frame.

      Patreon: www.patreon.com/Duncan_shadow

      Website: https://www.duncanshadow.com

      Scale: The default scale of my files is 32mm / 28mm Heroic, but Being 3D Files they can be scaled up or down.

      What do I get?

      As soon as the kickstarter has ended and funds cleared you will receive 3d Printable files in a stl format. You can print as many of the figures on your home printer as you want, or send the files to a external printer to do the printing for you.

      The kickstarter includes 7 vehicles 1 walker and 2 artillery pieces, with extra weapon options, (see below) to start with, more sculpts being unlocked in the near future.

      Main battle tank comes with multiple turret, hull and sponson guns.

      TERMS AND CONDITIONS. When you contribute to This campaign, you will receive STL files for the models as per your selected pledge. The pledge files will be delivered May 2018, with successful stretch goals arriving later. You can print these files for your personal use, but you may not sell the printed items for profit or distribute the digital 3D models/files to other parties.

      Explore the Adorable 
      If you are unfamiliar with the Baby Bestiary, prepare to "aww" and "squee" as we reveal to you how adorable your favorite monsters can be. 
      What is the Baby Bestiary?
      The Baby Bestiary is an award-winning, systemless art and lore book, that teaches its readers how creatures reproduce, how to care for its egg (if they lay eggs) and how to rear one if you are bold enough to try.
      The book has no stats or charts, leaving it as an amazing coffee-table book that can truly be appreciated by any gamer, no matter what you play. If you're an avid gamer, there is plenty of information that a crafty GM can make workable into their campaign (and if you're playing 5e, you're in luck, see the digital goodies). 
      The book is all about the cute and, need I say more

      The Dryad Tower & Tray in Ambrosia Maple, Purpleheart, and Leopardwood  The Dryad Gaming Co. Dice Tower & Tray is an extremely durable, obsessively made, and elegantly simple accessory for tabletop and role-playing games. 
      My name is Ty.  I'm a professional woodworker, specializing is small products, made from domestic and exotic hardwoods.  I also love playing games.  That's why I've created Dryad Gaming Co. 
      If you're a fan of Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, or other role-playing games, you're familiar with dice towers, and how they can improve your gaming experience. They keep your rolls random, on the table, and quick.  We all know that dice towers & trays are great, but there are a few things that set the Dryad towers & trays apart:
      1. Real, Traditional Woodworking Joinery:  Constructed using actual woodworking joints, these towers and trays can hold up to bumps and tumbles.  The wood glue I use is among the toughest available.  These also do not use any magnets or "non-traditional" fasteners that can be defeated by a rogue elbow. 
      2. Built for travel:  At around 6 and half inches tall, these are smaller than most dice towers on the market. These take up very little space, and can easily be tucked away in a bag or purse.  The Dryad Tower also isn't so big that you can't see your friends or battlemap. 
      3. Durable and Perfect for Metal Dice:  In addition to the tough construction of the Dryad Tower & Tray, it is also finished with an incredibly durable oil-urethane blend. The finish has resins that penetrate the wood fibers and harden.  The finish looks and feels great.  Oh, and it's totally safe to roll metal dice in these!
      All fourteen Dryad Towers & Trays  
      Every Tower & Tray is Available in 14 Different Hardwoods
      The Naiad Series includes White Oak, Maple, Walnut, Ambrosia Maple, and Cherry.  Nothing has been dyed or stained; the wood is naturally this beautiful.

      Chibis are super deformed, yet adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the EIGHTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Chibi Capsule and Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Magical Girl chibi miniatures along with monsters for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. And for some of them: The metal masters and resin production molds needed to create mass production of the miniatures.
      The Miniatures  
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  Stretch Goal may also pay for metal mastering and rubber molds for mass production spincast resin models which will allow the project to offer some of the Magical Girls at lower costs to our backers.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing below.

      The goal of this 12 day campaign is to reprint some of the ships from the early days of the Armada. The initial goal will reprint the Clydesdale, Mourning Wolf, and Venture posters. Higher funding levels will unlock the Grendel, Cygnus, and Grphyon posters for purchase as well. Prices are substantially lower than retail and include free links to valuable digital products as well.
      All of the posters will be available alone or in combination with their corresponding miniature(s). Backers can mix and match among the available ships as desired. Pledge for the total number of posters or combos you desire, and the survey at the end of the campaign will let you pick what you want for each slot.
      Posters are $15 each for the first four. $10 for each additional. Each combo adds $8 to include the matching miniatures. All pledge levels will receive links to digital images of the posters and the corresponding issues of Future Armada or Armada Codex at DriveThru and RPGNow.com. Shipping is $6 to $12 for the US, depending on weight. Posters are 24x36 inches, double sided, and shipped rolled rather than folded. The maps are at 1 inch = 5ft scale and have a subtle 1-inch grid built into the floor. Most of the miniatures are about 2 inches (50 mm) long. They come unpainted and include a 1 inch, clear acrylic, hex base. Both maps and minis fit easily into Starfinder and many other science fiction role-playing games.
      Starfinder stats are available free for several of these ships at my Port Zero page (more coming soon!).
      Most of these ships were designed with an adventuring party in mind. They typically require a small crew but have bunks for larger groups. All are at least lightly armed, and many carry small craft as well. If the ship fits completely on one side of the poster, then a variant is provided on the back - giving you another option. Both versions are completely described in the supporting digital documentation.
