Carrier done!

Share it Please
I sat down today at about 21:00 and thought I'd finish the carrier. It wouldn't take too long I said to myself, and here I am at 01:00 - just finished. These Firestorm: Armada models are quite big and take longer to paint than you think. I'm almost dreading painting the battleship.

Anyway, here she is:



I love all the great pipes going into the engine! 

Tried to get a shot of the hangar doors (and the supposed light) but again it gets kind of washed out because of my bad photography setup. You can actually see it better at the two rear doors.



A group shot of what's done so far. 



"We break for no one!"


So there we go! My current goal is to paint the starter fleet (battleship, three cruisers and six frigates) plus one  carrier, so I'm almost there. Hehe! I'm now pondering whether to tackle the BB next or the cruisers. Hmm...

  1. Very ornate! I think the lighting effect is evident in the fifth photo, especially on the lower door.

  2. Thanks! Glad you can see the lighting. Hehe!

    This fleet started out kind of shaky, but I have a good feeling about it now. :)

  3. Looking good !
    The lighting effect is not very dominant or eyecatching on the model, but that makes it, for me anyway, all the more effective.

  4. Thanks!

    I've never been much for really sharp highlights so this is probably as light as it'll get. :)

    Starting on the battleship tonight I think. Also I'm eagerly awaiting my witch hunter captain, but I fear something has gone awry with the mail... :(

  5. Really nice job mate. I'm hopefully getting my Firestorm Armada stuff soon and will start playing some games ASAP. I might pick your brains when i start if you don't mind. Cheers.

  6. Cool! What faction did you go for?

    Feel free to shoot questions my way as they crop up and I'll try my best to answer them. Hehe! :)

  7. Well as you know I'm a faction whore... Soooo I got the Sorylians and the Relthoza right off of the bat. Just couldn't decide which one to get so I thought 'you know what Jody, you deserve both!' my bank manager might not agree but stuff him I say!!! lol. Looking forward to making a board to play this on and also making a board to play Dystopian Wars on, I'll whack those up as soon as they're done.

  8. Hehe! I know exactly what you mean. I've never been aable to stick to just one faction ffor any length of time.

    With Sorylians and relthoza you have two different playstyles to choose from. Should be fun!
