Comparison shots

People have been asking me to snap some shots comparing the official Spartan Games miniatures and my Yamato ships. So here you go:

Never mind the pin vice, it's only there to keep the balance of the very back heavy Sorylian ship.



As you can see my ships are a fair bit sleeker compared the more chunky resin ship, but that's to be expected considering the different materials. Size wise I think they fit excellent however, and I'm looking forward to battling with them as that should really show them off nicely.

Oh, and I got my paints the other day so hopefully you'll see some developments on that front soon. I think I'll try to paint these models rather quick and dirty, not bothering too much with hightlighting and such. We'll see how it turns out...

  1. Very nice - looking forward to seeing them battle!

    It was the ship designs that really put me off Firestorm: Armada. Looks like Spartan could learn a thing or two, as these are awesome. I've never seen any ships shout "space navy" quite like the Yamato ones.

  2. Yeah, I wasn't too keen on the official ships either, so decided to go with these!
    For me it's not that the models from Spartan Games are ugly, it's just that there are so many better looking models out there.

    I definitely agree about the Yamato ships, they're really the original space navy. :)
