Sometimes in your sci-fi games you need a starship that's small enough to fit into a carrier hangar or land just behind an enemy base.

The intention behind this pack was to design interior deck plans which fit within a 6x6 inch tiles. This makes them an ideal size on the table for “escape” scenarios from docking bays, a camp HQ for explorers of new planets, or boarding party encounters. The designs here provide the referee with a choice of trimming the print-outs into a square tile or cutting close to the dark outline of the spacecraft so that they can be used against any background or battle-mat.

Print to card, photo-paper or paper, and trim with scissors. In some cases you may need to back the tiles with card to minimise curling caused by ink saturation.


These starships exist in a “used universe”. Characters in sci-fi RPGs are often struggling to get by financially, in a hazardous and expensive setting. They might be stealing what they can and renting the rest. The ships they fly around in could be classed as almost “diesel punk”, they are retro-fitted with exposed power ducts with steam leaking from vents. These rattling hybrids are repaired with power wrenches and patched up with scavenged scrap alloys. Thin electrical fields keep the precious air in whilst the ageing batteries lose their charged. As the adventurers limp into a starport for dry dock repairs, they can jealousy gaze at the sleek streamlined luxury cruisers owned by local dukes and system oligarchs.

Only three more jobs and their junker will be paid for, providing the V-dampners don't blow during descent and they get the shipment through the security scan...

I've been using these for a hear and a half now. I really like the rough "deck plating" scheme. It would be great to get a 2' x 3' battle mat of that pattern.

These are really great! These fit such a perfect need at my table. Now, I'm in love with the art. Are there any plans to make some larger ships?

Thanks for such a kind comment. The plan was originally to make something which fitted the 6x6 tiles, but possibly I could design ships that fit onto the larger posters which DriveThru/OBS produce. I've also had requests for modular sci-fi plans, but it'll be while before I can get anything together like that. Thanks again, regards Billiam Babble / Will M. / Inked Adventures.

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.
