Note: It’s been a bad couple of weeks for my site, everything crashed and it made it impossible for me to post anything, but after a couple of hours work last night the whole site has been moved over to another server and things are back to normal again….
Well another couple of productive nights this week, I managed to get four more spaceship fleets painted and almost ready to use on the table.
I had to fix all the flight stands to the models and make wire stands where needed which was most of the smaller ships!!
So, lots of drilling and gluing but at last they are done, all I need to do now is tidy up the bases a little and fix some numbers to them.
First off we have two Human fleets, these are a mix of Full Thrust, Drop Fleet and Silent Death fighters ( from EM4 Miniatures ) these are nice ships that have painted up really nice.
The red ships again have not photographed that well, something with my camera and reds!
Next up is a Full Thrust Kra’Vak Alien fleet, I really do like these ships, they look sleek and deadly and will fit in Stars & Lasers as either an Alien fleet or a Human fleet, they will pass as either.
The two biggest ships came with loads of tiny turret weapons which I have left off as they didn’t fit in with the look that I wanted, although I might use them one day as weapons on a space-station or something.
The last lot are the Full Thrust Sa’Vasku Alien ships, these really fit in as another Alien bio-ship fleet and will get a lot of use in my games.
Now the next job for these fleets is the fighters and fighter bombers, I have enough for about twelve fighter stands and about six fighter bomber stands, that will be six fighters and three bombers for each fleet, but I only have enough bases for three stands!!!
It looks like that I will have to either order them online form GZG or wait until SELWG show to get some more without the postage… I will be going to the show so without the postage is a better option I think, that sounds like I am a bit tight, but they are 90p each so they are not cheap when you need loads, as I will still need more for the Alien fleets, and I still want to replace the bases I have for my original bio ship fighters, as I don’t like them as much.
And I probably have enough little fighters sitting in a box for about another six Alien fighter stands and about another twenty more Human fighters stands!!!!
To be honest I am not sure I would ever use that many fighters so they may never get done, but if I should add more fleets to my ever-growing number of fleets, then I will need to add fighters to them…
