Hi.


I haven't been able to apply brush to paint, or to a mini, for quite some time - and I'm note sure when I'll get a chance to get set up for that again.


But, I do have the odd mini which was painted a while back, though not all of them are quite finished.


I tried to take some pics today, but it's too dark to get them to turn out well. I may try again on a brighter day.


But, in the meantime, here is a sample of what I have tried to work on:



(Note that one of the Klingon ships is not a Starline mini.)



(The non-Starline mini is not in this picture.)

Bah! This isn't a modest minis thread! No minis thread is modest! It's about showing off your good work! Very Happy

Good to see more minis being done (even if it was a little while ago).

Nice job on the Andro-very intimidating.

And I really like the ISC, looks used and like it's been through a lot of combat during the Pacification Campaign.

The Tholians are hard to make out details-wise because of the light, but I think I see some contrasting colors there.

Is that a FASA D7 in there?

Thanks!

Well, the mini does most of that job by itself! I love it.

I tried to base the colour scheme on the ISC ships from Starfleet Command 2.

I was kind of experimenting with those - one I wanted to make look vaguely In a Mirror, Darkly-ish.

Indeed so - I like to think of it as a DX substitute.


When the lighting is better, I'll see about doing some clearer pics.

Gary - good job.

I like the Andro... very menacing.

I also have a few of the FASA D7s that I use for DXs...

Thanks, Scoutdad!


Anyway, a few more pics.

First up, the Inter-Stellar Concordium Dreadnought Concordium:





The Klingon C7 War:





And the Andromedan Dominator Mazzini!





A sign of things to come:

Gary, those look great man. Nicely done. I particularly like the ISC ship (but all look great).

Got any more in the works?

I can't remember!

(I'm not sure why it photographs that way, but the hull is more green-ish in person.)

Thanks - they all need a little tidying up, though.

Problem is, I have no setup for painting where I am now...

...but I do have a number of ships I want to try and do up once I'm able to get painting again.

I used a Gundam Marker (which I ordinarily use to fill in the panel lines on the Gundam figures I also collect) to touch up some of the lines on Mazzini.

Plus, I decided to try a new place to take photos!

Personally, I like the Andro best. But all of them are good.

Ad, yes I'm not into minis yet, but the Andro looked so good I had to say something...

Oh, the Dominator is arguably the best miniature in the entire Starline 2400 range.

It's got such... gravitas.


I really can't wait to see what the Devastator might be like!

Take an 8-inch aluminum pie pan... turn it upside down... paint it green... add gray details... and voila! Andromedan Devastator! Wink

Nah, I'd rather wait for the real one!


(Assuming we actually get one, of course.)
