I've finally gotten around to dusting off and taking pictures of my old Starline miniatures. I'll be moving on to my more current stuff over the weekend and I'll probably toss in my 40k and fantasy stuff as well.

Some of these I painted many many many years ago. I used to have about 175 SFB ships including PF squadrons....but sold them. Slowly I've been adding to the fleets.

Good work, Tom. I'm looking forward to seeing more of it.

Good stuuf. Interesting to see someone who doesn't feel bound to paint all his ships from an empire with identical matching schemes - I'm one of those). It's nice to have some variation.

Indeed. Your color choices are really fun. They're different, and yet still feel appropriate for the setting at the same time. Good job! Your collection is really cool.

I finished taking pictures of the rest of my painted FC ships and they're at:

The camera doesn't do the best job on close up pictures but they're not bad.

Enjoy.

Nice work. Pick a few ships, do clear big photos, and post them in the topic I set up to nominate for the MINI OF THE MONTH. Eric is constantly pestering me to find new Mini of the Month photos for Hailing Frequencies.

No! The Space Wolves and Ultramarines have stolen Federation vessels and plan to invade the SFU! (I kid.)

I like the different colors you used. Totally into seeing some variation.

I'd rather have Space Wolves as my boarding parties than the standard ones.

Ah verra verra nice Very Happy
Its always slick to see non-traditional colors. The Gorns just scream for some sort of lizard/snake pattern.
We had an idea in painting the Tholians in various gemstone colors, and painting the Seltorians in various insect patterns but haven't gotten around to it.

I used to have a bunch of Tholians years back; they were all done gold/copper/silver. They were very shiny.

I did my Tholians with a silver base and gold/copper trim.

I like variety on minis.

Just as long as you dont paint a pink mini.
