Traveller Type S Scout/Courier
For the last four years, 2nd Dynasty has designed original content at 28mm scale for the 3D printed tabletop, inspired by your favourite science fiction. Now, for the first time, we are pleased to announce our official partnership with Far Future Enterprises, custodians of the Traveller roleplaying game, to bring you the first in what is hopefully a long line of official Traveller starship and character miniature designs for your home 3D printer..
The first offering is perhaps the most iconic ship design from the Traveller universe, the Type S Scout/Courier. Although many iterations of the Type S have made their appearance over the last 44 years, our 3D printable offering is based off of the Murphy-class Type S Scout/Courier deck plans featured in the 5th edition of Traveller, T5.
The hero of this crowdfunding campaign is the iconic Type S Scout/Courier, a vessel in the Third Imperium that is as ubiquitous as any other. A tried and true design made for the Scout Service, most Type S models are surplus Scout Service vessels or retired service vessels that are often owned or co-owned by retired scouts, and may be called up in times of war.
Some are more or less the same specs as the military scouting variant. Others are gutted out and retrofitted for mining activities or bounty hunting. Whatever the purpose, the Type S is a fast, Jump-2 capable vessel that is easily able to refuel itself in bodies of water or gas giant clouds.
What is a ship without its crew? If you are going to enjoy the Type S at full 28 mm scale, you are going to need some great 3D printable miniatures to go with them. Our last run out, we had great success working with Papsikels creating the crew of the Sleipnir, which featured a number of dynamic poses.
This time around, we have some crew members for the Type S, but also some great and iconic Traveller characters to people your universe.
Although we will have some combat-oriented miniatures, our focus will be on providing many non-combat alternatives.
Our Heroic Crew
Heroic miniatures vary from standard miniatures in that they will feature additional poses that we will unlock as the campaign progresses.
VARGR AND FRIENDS
A lineup of Vargr combatants from Flavored Pickle
Creature sculpt artist Flavored Pickle brings us a collection of Vargr pirates and soldiers in a variety of action poses. Although these guys will not have the wide variety of poses to unlock, as the campaign continues, we will add additional miniatures to the line up of Character Stretch Goals.
