Very nice. I presume those are all ShapeWays minis, yes?

Nah, they're the Starline 2400's. I'd like to pick up some of the shapeway minis, but I don't like the versatile plastic, and the fine detail ones are too pricey to justify picking up as many of them as I'd like (I plan on building fairly large fleets of the main civilizations since my friends are interested enough to play the game, but not interested enough that they want to buy their own models lol).

I also like the convenience of the squadron and border packs, I'll probably pick up a few of the shapeways here and there, but not for a while.

Nice fleets! I love seeing minis getting paint jobs and put into battle.

Things are always changing with 3D printing and Shapeways introduces new options occasionally. I'm still holding out hope that some genius kid is going to come up with the "Goldilocks" printing technology that has detail and surface quality as good (or better!) than metal and Fine Detail Plastic, but costs as little (or less!) than Versatile Plastic. The new(ish) PA12 option is a step in the right direction and hopefully something comes along before too much longer.
