I did a search but could find it.

What are the colors of the different plasma torps? I trying to do my own minis.

Has anyone mentioned doing a booster pack of tournament cruisers of all the races for FC? I would buy that.

There are no "specified" colors for the different types of Plasma Torps, so I assume they'd all be similar in appearance: A huge (some mre huge than others Shocked ), glowing mass of plasma ifre traveling through space.

Now, that being said - I didn't agree with it and wanted different plasma torps for myself. If you'll follow the links in the signature below, you can see my 12 year old plasma torp minis. I found a package of plastic "Sequin Pins" that made decent plasma torps. And since they came in several colors, I was able to classify based on color:
Plasma-R= Red
Plasma-G=Green
Plasma-S=Saffron (yellow for the least artistic among you Wink )
And finally,
Plasma-F=blue (cause pink and blue were the only two colors left!)

What color would you use for plasma D?

Purple and orange look like the best colors left so how about purple?

So far, I don't think there's a reason to make it. As far as I've read, there are no tournament cruisers for FC. The FC tournament is going to consist of fleets, not just individual ships. And I think I remember reading that ADB is going to provide the cards at Origins. This info might be in CL38.

Now if you mean miniatures, those are already on the cart as cruiser boxes 1 and 2.

Yeah, I'd think the big honking ball of burnin' plasma comin' at ya would be pretty much the same color and look the same to the naked eye no matter what type it actually is. I had thought about making some minis and making the base the counter color for whatever race used that type (although that wouldn't be technically correct anymore) so now I think I'm just going to put the letter of whatever type it is, along with a number, on a black base.

Guys,
I use the colors of the plasma torpedoes from SFC. Plasma R is red, plasma S is orange, plasma G is yellow, plasma F is green and plasma D is blue. I have custom tokens on order from Litko but they will not be here until after the convention, so I am using other colors during the convention. If we play with cards, I am still going to have to play with stands for torpedoes.

I'd run with Hod K'el's colours - if I had my own minis, which I don't Sad

The thing with the 'R' torp, it's the only one we ever got to see on film [TOS episode 'Balance of Terror'], and in that it was bright red.

Actually in the remastered TOS episode "The Deadly Years" we can now see what looks like Plasma D's or Plasma F's being fired at the Enterprise by Romulan vessels. They are significantly smaller and do a lot less damage than the torpedo from "Balance of Terror". They are shown in a yellowish color.

I may be the only one here with this vision but I intend to separate the plasma torpedo colors by race and not by torpedo type. When I finally have minis for the plasmas I will identify the type by some type of label at the base, but would like each race to have its own plasma color. I am thinking about:

Romulan - Red
Gorn - Green
Orion - Yellow
Federation - Blue

By the way. Are there any other races in the SFU that use Plasmas ? I am only familiar with the races introduced in Federation Commander so far.

The Interstellar Concordium (ISC) also uses plasma torpedoes. They'll appear in the 'War and Peace' supplement.
