Does Anybody Still Pimp Games?
Oh yea! I almost forgot I printed out 50ish cards and bought a couple of custom minis to put Blake's 7 into Firefly:TBG

* WWE Showdown- printed additional fan-created wrestlers from BGG to expand the roster from 6 choices to around 20ish. This was something the game needed initially.
* Star Wars: Epic Duel- Again downloaded a few new decks to expand the game for choices not initially offered.
* Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective- Downloaded all the fan created cases I could find.
* Arkham Horror - Haven’t done this yet, but I want to make a custom box to hold all expansions in it.
Twilight Imperium got pimped with those litko flight stands. Very handy to move large fleets and avoid clutter. I don't play TI that often but it is one of those games that we break out atleast twice a year ever year since ti3 came out.
Shadespire got a new insert from feldherr. It protects the minatures and is way better than the original insert.
Apart from inserts and those flight stands I cant phantom using a lot of money on a game, instead of using money on more sensible things

I need this. Where did you print them from?
There is a thread on bgg in the firefly forum called Blake's 7 in the verse. Links to the ships to order them from shapeways. Cards are there to be printed or you can go whole hog and order them printed for 20ish bucks. All info can be found in the thread.

I followed the directions closely, except instead of ironing on a wooden table, I used the bottom of a metal baking sheet. It needs to be a hard surface so the image transfers right, but a hot iron on wood sounds like a terrible idea to me. I did a test print of a black Scorpion Clan logo on an old cotton tanktop, and it came out great.
Unfortunately, the directions were wrong for my project. The highest heat setting is great for cotton, but it melted felt, and that was after just one minute. So the Lion Clan bag has some holes in it where the heat burned through the felt, and my iron has some melted felt glued to it. I dialed down the heat setting to a medium setting for blends, and attempted the Crab Clan logo for a little less than a minute. It came out perfectly. All of the rest turned out great, too, except that the color is slightly faded on the Crane Clan for some reason. The iron was already past its prime after too many uses with tap water, and I will just order a replacement bag and have another go at the Lion Clan.
Does that count?
