As the title says, “can you have too many cargo ships?” well that’s the question I have asked myself… and the answer is… maybe!
I had a little free time tonight, so I managed to get some paint on some more freighters / cargo ships to use in my games of Stars & Lasers, these are some of the smaller freighters I have but they are still very nice models.
They are from a set of cargo ships from Brigade Models I picked up a while back, these are really nice simple models, and I will definitely be getting more.
Some of the ships in the set are modelled with weapons on very small turrets, these didn’t fit in with what I wanted so I filed them off.
Again, they all had a very quick paint job, which means they fit in with all my others!
I saw a similar colour scheme on someone’s blog a long while back and liked the orange, yellow and blue containers and have tried to get a similar finish, although they are nowhere near as good as the original ones, I am happy with them.
I think that I have enough now for a really big convoy game… or do I need more?
Note: having looked at the photos more closely while getting them ready for this post, I realized that I need to lighten the blue slightly to match the first freighters I painted.
