I have been lucky enough to get hold of some Star Trek ships ( and some ‘not Star Trek’ ships ) some of these were given to me by a friend and some I have collected over the years, and I thought is was about time I gave them a little love.
I have a fairly large Klingon fleet which has been base coated in green with a highlight quickly dry-brushed on to pick out the details, but they do need a few details adding to finish them off.
There are some great ships in this fleet and I can’t wait to get them on the table and in a game.
I also have a reasonable Federation fleet which needs fixing to flight stands before cleaning up and painting, I am looking forward to getting these ships finished as I have always loved the Federation ships.
Because these ships will be mainly white I will have to get out my airbrush to paint them as white never seems to look good when brushed on, well when I do it it doesn’t 😕
Something which I need to correct is that in all the years that I have been playing games with spaceships I have never ever played with Star Trek ships!! This is something that I find very odd as I have grown up loving Star Trek and all its spaceships.
Well once these ships are finished that will hopefully all change 😊
And finally, I have three Romulan ships that I will paint up as well just to throw another enemy against the Federation.
I think that I may even make some data-cards for Stars & Lasers to allow me to use these ships as Star Trek ships, this is something that I have been thinking about for a long while and getting these ships ready for gaming will give me the push that I need.
I will have to do a little research into Star Trek ships and weapons though if I want to do this, but hopefully that shouldn’t be too hard to do.
Well I will post up some progress pictures on here as and when the ships are done and I may even give a few previews of the data-cards and weapons etc. as they are completed.
