Black Sun Wars RPG Starship Starter set

Watermarked PDF


The first release for Black Sun Wars is the Human faction starter spaceship set.

The set uses a modular building system, scalable printing and multiple colour variations for most of the models that allows you to create a near infinite amount of ship variations.

Why modular?
We specifically designed the sets to be modular so that you can truly have a unique fleet, no matter how many friends or gamers own the set, we can guarantee that no two builds will be the same. Its real simple to use, all the components are created from mostly basic shapes that can be assembled in any way you see fit. You can even mix and max different ships components, for example just out of the Battleship we were able to create one large frigate and a battleship and used some of the left over pieces to add weapons to the freighter set.

Not a kit basher or modular player?
No problem at all, each ship comes with full instructions on how to assemble it to resemble the original design. But trust us…. You will very soon be printing it out and modding it because its just sooo easy to totally get creative and unique with your builds.

Is there a Black Sun Wars gaming system?
Not yet, we will shortly launch a kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds we need to develop the Black Sun Wars system as well as 3 extra factions.

The Starter set contains:
1x Battlecruiser
2x Frigates
1x Freighter
1x assortment of fighters
1x Stand and assembly instructions

It does not look like a lot but due to the modular nature of ships there is thousands upon thousands of assembly, colour and size variations.

A weapon and utility pack will follow shortly with the weapon stat cards.

Why is the frigates centred and only one per page?
This allows you to scale the model using just your printer settings, this increases the modular components available to build new ships.

The idea of providing modular parts is pretty nifty, and the set provides ample pieces to build your fleet with. While I like the thing a lot, and definitely recommend it, there are a few criticisms: For one, the pieces are overly fiddly. The gl [...]

This set is a very good buy. The modular construction system means that the pieces can be used to make starships beyond those shown in the instructions without having gaps in the textures or having to cut extra parts to fill in gaps. Being able to make [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
