    So this took longer than expected. Anyway, they've been done for two weeks now so here's some pictures:
    First up the dreaded Anarchist battleship DFC Kukulkan-TQ6:


    Some SRS tokens:

    And the complete fleet:

     
    Thanks for all the nice and supportive comments, by the way, I really appreciate it. :)
    My next project is a Terran Patrol Fleet but I'll post the whole thing once it's done, I think.

    I haven't seen it mentioned yet but the range of available miniatures has silently expanded. RotO Aquans, Sorylian gunships, Ba'Kash battle carrier, lots of Directorate and Relthoza, Tarakian fighter tokens (lol), Oroshan and Dindrenzi escorts etc.

    Not that quick, it turns out. Anyway, on to the Turmoils, DFC Bathornis-PI99 and DFC Illuyanka-S001 (as you can see I looked up the Directorate's naming conventions):


    Pictures are very blue this time, don't ask me why, I didn't do anything different.
    Next up: Well, the Anarchist, of course. Last ship from RotO that's still missing.

    Fashionably late here are the Aquan SRS that have been lying around for weeks but I only just got around to take a picture of:

     
    And, as promised, Annihilation-class gunships Kelenken and Paracrax, ready for duty:

     
    The Turmoils should be quicker, I hope.

    The beautiful brown speckling reminds me of Moya from Farscape.  The windows are really, really good.  It's an amazing fleet.

    The Fighters and bombers will be deployed soon. Wouldn't mind some more Cruisers or a second battleship, but we will see that WC have in store. Apologies for some shot being blurry, settings correct on camera, just didn't want to focus. Looking to get a photo booth thing soon for future FSA projects as I have a lot of them coming.

    For anyone left here many thanks for the comments, haven't been around in a while.  My interest in the game has resurfaced  recently so finished up the bombers and fighters.

    Managed to find another pack of RSN Cruisers so will be arriving end of month.

    Here, as promised, the Sulises:


     
    Not much to say: Today's Sulis is on the right, the other one has been finished for a few weeks already. New varnish actually helped evening out the models. Oannes coming up as soon as I get to it, so probably tomorrow. No promises, though.

    Interesting paint scheme for the aquans. I'm not sure I've seen one like it.

    It puts the paint on the resin or else it gets the hose again!
     
    So, it's been a while. Nice being back. I painted some things in the last few weeks, didn't want to keep them from the public. Or the public from them. Anyway, I could use some motivation to keep going.
     
    First the Aquan half of the Taskforce box:
    Carcinus and Ladon

    Ladon shows off its engines

    Oh no, Carcinus fell over!

    Nereids, still don't know where their engines are so I just guessed

     
    And the first finished things from RotO, more to come:
    Chimaeras, confused

    The belly of the ... beast? Small aggressive aquatic creature?

    Liquidators, with purpose

    Nothing funny to see here, folks

    Strange structure

    I think it just turned on ...

    So cute!

     
    Let me know what you think!

    Thank you for your feedback!
    The colour scheme on the Aquans is basically what I came up with after I saw a picture of a whale shark. It's easy to do (just spray the bottom white then the top brown) and looks pretty, although it probably makes the whole fleet look really brown on the table. In my experience the problem with many space ship models is that you can't really see all the detail on the bottom of the ship and, in this case, the colour of the bottom, which is a bit of a waste because it's pretty to look at.
    The Directorate colour scheme is something I think I blatantly stole from Kurgan IIRC. I'm not 100% on my interpretation of the colour scheme on the frigates, I think it's a bit boring and could use a little more contrast. Maybe some brighter green stripes on the dark green parts for the larger ships?
    Here's a better picture of the Anathema drone, the one I took yesterday was too blurry to post:

    And here's two pictures of the Shiva gunships, the one on the left is the one I finished today, the right one has been finished for about three weeks, now:


    Not sure why exactly the left one is so much darker than the right one but I'm just going to accept it. Left one isn't completely varnished, either, my spray can of matte varnish crapped out on me yesterday, maybe that'll change something on how it looks.
    Next up: Sulis heavy cruisers, probably by the end of the week. First I need a new can of varnish.

    Really nice work on the lenses in the last photo - and I like the way you've split the contrast on the ships with a darker top and then a brighter underside to bring out the detail of the underside in a way that often gets overlooked in spaceship games.
