Cynanbloodbane's plastic-crack addiction, a perpetual WIP...

29 posts in this topic

Though long overdue, I finally found time to start spreading out all the ships & squadrons for some pictures.

Much of my collection is still a WIP, but it is fun to see it all grouped together.

Today I bring you my Imperial Fleet.

While I'm definitely not as talented a painter as some here, I am happy with most of my results, and I am definitely learning as I go.

If you get a chance I'd love to see some more shots of your custom ships. I've never seen so many of Mel's children in one place before. I can't stop scrolling through those pics. Most impressive.

are those rounded ships stands custom build or where did you find it?

I'm sure to have seen it somewhere before....

Good catch. I needed quick, cheap  display/painting stands. Those are Command hooks, medium, 3 lb hooks. I either drill a hole for the peg ships, or glue on one of the many FFG keyhole pegs I have plucked from the bottom of all my keyhole ships,(except the ISDs, those don't ever want to come out, and they look better with them.) https://www.target.com/p/command-174-damage-free-designer-hooks-white-medium-6-hooks-12-strips/-/A-13713881?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google_pla_df&CPNG=PLA_Home+Improvement+Shopping&adgroup=SC_Home+Improvement&LID=700000001170770pgs&network=g&device=m&location=9015345&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1celvKP11gIV0luGCh3gEwmlEAQYBiABEgIC0fD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Usually works out to just over a buck per base.

In my next batch of pictures I will take some shots of just those bases.

In regards to your collection and paintwork, the line "Impressive, most impressive" is the understatement of the year.   All the front row EU ships are incredible.

Thanks! The EU ships up front are my latest work. My dry brush work has really improved recently. (At least compared to my earlier attempts.) 

Multiple layers of dry brushing, with progressively lighter colors. The lightbulb came on with my blue Liberty... Rebels are coming soon. That will be one of my featured ships!

Syndicate ships from Firestorm Armada.

Good eye! I'm trying to get my hands on a Hawker Industries Alliance Fleet, to use as a Hutt space Enforcement Fleet. Saddly hard to find.

you've got soooo much work to do, an epic rebel fleet, a bit astonished you did not get a MC80b!

just missing a Viscount defender:lol:

did you check how many armada point you can muster on each side just with your ships (naked, that is without any add-on cards)?

I find Dindrenzi more "hutt-like", but Hawker are good

I have an MC80b sitting in my cart at Shapeways. 

Last time I checked points, I was over 4000, but that didn't include all the custom ships, only the ones I have completed cards for.

I looked at the Dindrenzi, but eventually decided they would make a better Mandolorian fleet. They are lower on my list, but I wouldn't mind grabbing up a set if they presented themselves.

So I had to google all the firestorm armada ships but now that I have I agree that the Hawkers are more Hutt like especially their large ship. The Dindrenzi definitely look like they'd be a perfect fit for the Mandolorians or even the better off forgotten Zann Consortium. Those ships look like they're all based on the Kandosii or the Keldabe.

Yep, it's really too bad that Spartan Games folded. Going to make these even harder to get.
