|Federation fleet mustering for... sensor scanning!|
This was an extremely quick job and I finished all 12 ships in an evening. Spray white, wash with black and then pick out some details was my initial plan. I wanted to avoid any drybrushing, which is usually good for quick jobs, since the Federation ships are so smooth and futuristic. Unfortunately I was a bit too heavy handed with the wash and a few of the ships needed some extra colour to lighten them back up again. Still, for the most part they look good anyway.
Some red and blue for the engines and done! Quick, easy and looks a lot better than bare plastics. I think I might do the Klingons and Romulans in one go as they're both green - I'll simply use the same spray and then different washes (brown for Klingons, green for Romulans probably).
Although these have clix bases and are meant for the board game I guess they could be used for any space based combat game if I ever find myself eager to model som Trek battles. Although, seeing as I just found my Lightning Strike paper cutout figures I think it's more likely I'll give that a try instead.
|I think these sheets of cutouts were part of the first edition of Lightning Strike. Or was it the demo game? |
Anyway, should be good for getting some games in!
