Mini Starships series #1

The Mini Starships series are little ships designed for a boardgame of mine. Since the ships are printed on a 2cm counter, they need little detail but lively flashy textures and easily read 'identity'. Bearing those constraints, the Mini Starships are simply modeled  and have a semi-generic texture quickly applied.

Below is the first design extracted from the boardgame: a little destroyer armed with two laser turrets with very good firing arcs. You easily spot (or not) the linear energy recuperators around the exhaust and the phased array panel detectors.

The polycount is kept very low, since I would definitely not frown on making a little videogame of it all, once the boardgame is out !
