Get a Pound of Ships!

Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc. is running a deal on "factory second" ships. These ships will have all the major parts (engines, struts, etc.), but the ships themselves will have defects, be it missing metal, too much metal, or missing detail. Each bag will usually have over 20 (a few more if the ships are on the small side) that add up to a pound in weight, so you are paying less than $3 a ship. These ships are all from the Starline 2400 series and do not include stands. (Stands are sold separately: http://store.starfleetstore.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=S&Category_Code=O )

The pound of ships will be packed randomly; we won't know what is in any bag, but we won't stick you with ships of all one empire. For the price of $49.95, we won't be able to pack a bag "just for you."

Many of our fans have found that these ships are good for taking to gaming sessions or for starting their miniature-painting career. These are also good for creating battle-damaged ships. Somehow it doesn't "hurt as much" to further damage an already less-than-perfect ship.

This is a special offer -- when we run out of factory seconds, then we run out of pounds. This deal is only available direct from ADB: http://store.starfleetstore.com/merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=S&Product_Code=0040&Category_Code=14

These are an incredibly good deal. I counted three bags and got 22, 25, and 26 ships. Just depends on how big they are. One massive battleship can weigh as much as 20 romulan eagles.

Every bag will include Feds, almost every bag (if not every bag, I'm hedging because I didn't watch that closely) will include Klingon, Romulan, Kzinti, and Hydran. Most will get a gorn and almost every bag (if not every bag) will get a battleship (some of them two).

For a cheap price, you can quickly acquire a smattering of many empires, giving your fumble fingered opponents a ship to borrow that isn't one of your really perfect nicely painted ones.

These are factory seconds. You'll find missing metal, excess metal, mis-shaped or missing sensor dishes, divots, cracks, and so forth. We made sure that they had all of the pieces except maybe sensor dishes in some cases. I will remark that we had a bucket of Fed saucers (cruiser, command cruiser, fast cruiser, survey scout) and a shoebox of Fed BC and CS hull/engine pieces, and most bags have one "cruiser" even if it's not a cruiser actually in the official inventory (fast strike cruiser, anyone? fast scout cruiser?)
