This is just a sneak peek at the new Colony ships I am designing for Stars & Lasers, these are just some of the initial print outs and are still a work in progress.
The ones I have printed out so far are in the picture from the smallest to the biggest – Corvette, Frigate, Destroyer, Light Cruiser, Heavy Cruiser and a Fighter Carrier.
The basic design is a fast sleek ship with big powerful engines a totally different design from the boxy UEF ships I did a while back.
I am pleased with the basic shape of these ships and the how the details have come out, hopefully lots of nice areas and sections for painting.
I am still working on the other ships from this set which will be a Battlecruiser, a Battleship and a Dreadnought, these I hope to finish over the next few days, watch out for some pictures of these soon.
Once these are all done I will put some paint on them and put some more pictures of them on here, I just need to work out what colour scheme will look good on them! 🤔
These all still need some more cleaning up before they are ready for painting but that should be a fairly quick and simple job, I noticed as I was taking these photos that one or two are not lined up correctly, there are tiny overhangs etc. this will all be sorted out and cleaned up before painting.
Here is some close up shots of the detail on the ships starting with the Fighter Carrier, this will hopefully paint up nicely.
I am hoping to come up with two or three more designs for Colony ships over the next few months and I am also looking at adding an alien fleet of some sort.
I will add more pictures on the Little Wargaming Worlds Discord server, pop over and chat about the designs or even show us some of your own ships that you use in your games of Stars & Lasers.
