    RSN fleet

    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.

    Hi, and thank you. I've got them hosted on imgur, I just copy the image code recommended for message boards and forum, then copy and paste it directly here.

    Carrier Destroyers Group 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.

    BIG Update time! woot! Mostly finished my RSN, managed to knuckle down and get them finished. Been done for about a month and a half no, just the fighter and bomber tokens to do. A delayed thank you very much for the replies everyone. Frigates and escorts Deadnought Few modifications, I felt it was lacking obvious guns. I'm pleased with the end paint job on this one the most. Took the longest to do, few days to get it right, and a repaint-repaint. With the larger surface area the paint scheme was harder to get right. As they are all painted by hand/brush didn't want to change that for the recent updates. So it was a labour of love for sure. Painted
  5. Hello Horizon, have to say its been a while since I've come across yourself. I used to take part in the BFG comps, probably 5+ years ago I think, and were good fun. Not sure if the old site went offline or what but I was unable to find you guys online anywhere?. Looking at the forum I can see a few old names. I'm certainly interested in the conversion entry. You might even remember it from way back. That is if I haven't mistaken you for someone else online by the same name of course, which is entirely possible. Gah!, just re-read the post in more detail on the other forum, no way I'm going to have it finished by tomorrow.

    Thanks all, Been a while since last update, been busy getting pumping these out. That and something happened on my PC and the camera stopped uploading pics. Think I removed the drivers for it by mistake and they no longer have/support the software online to download them again..., . New camera now, so looking forward to taking pics with the new one, for now the old pics. Battleship and heavy cruiser support. HC's Frigates The white line on the fronts are swords icons. Painted this area as the bridge. sorry for he shoddy pics, but they are pretty plain anyways.

    Thanks both, Not quite finished the other, little bit to go on the other cruiser, then the battleship is up next.

    Thanks all ANd , I think something happened to my yellow. Had to stick another thin layer of wash over it as it got to bright with some highlights. Still look alright but starting to become a chore... . Think it needs more red somewhere, thinking the whole wingy bits going red(only the bit that sticks out the furthest). My thoughts are leaning towards a light battleship grey and the red bits in the same place. Also, while colours are a freedom of choice/expression, it doesn't feel overly navy themed to it, if you follow me?

    Thanks both, think a little highlight with bleached bone would be enough. And Khorne red is exactly the colour I have ready next to the ship, lol.

    Lil, update, with the camera back in the house few pics. Much happier with this finish, maybe a few more starker highlight. I think a burgundy red would work with this very well. Thoughts?

    RSN fleet

    Thanks for the continued advice. Urgh, I've tried a blue on a 40k tank now dubbed 'the tester' turned out fine however didn't go very well on the cruiser. Some how, it turned out a purple. Then tried a green, ran five different shades. Went with a camo/olive green. Ruined it. had to strip the paint right off as this point I started losing details.... Tried a lighter blue and just awful on the tester. Come around full circle and back to yellow , this time it seems I might have nailed it. Using Averland yellow and a Seraphim wash, just a careful quick over with the wash like you say Quickdraw. The flash gitz yellow was just to bright which is why it wasn't working before. So when trying to achieve the shade in my opening post the colours became to dirty and the detail of the ships became filled with to much wash leftovers/run-offs. Now, hopefully a highlight of the averland and maybe a 3/1 ratio of averland and flashgitz yellow will get what I want or close to it. Maybe a tad bleach bone in there somewhere as mentioned. The parts that are white on the spartan games paint job....thinking of black as will look fairly sweet, or a deep red? like a burgundy colour. No progress pics at the moment, most likely Sunday when the missus gets back with it. oh, and going to pickup reinforcements tomorrow, carrier and destroyer units. Had planned to have this lot done by now, but settling on a colour scheme and getting it to a point where I'm happy with it has been unnecessarily difficult.

    RSN fleet

    Aye, would likely if done. However they have been wiped and are now re-primed white ready for either another scheme or the spartan games box art blue/white look. Many thanks for the feed back though. I think maybe with the overall theme of this faction the yellow didn't fit and looked odd after a while of looking at them.

    Thanks WA, Pics of what was, but won't be. frigates finished more or less, cruisers part way there so was still a WIP. first attempt is closer, Pics make them look way better than they were, which is annoying. as they really looked grubby or far to bight for what I wanted. Gutted really. I remember now why I don't paint yellow. I think it either looks to 40k tau or imperial fists(which is fine, but dont overly want a semi 40k armada feel in FSA)

    RSN fleet

    Some progress made, pics later. But I'm not overly happy. While the yellow works for the small ships getting it to work the way I want it on the bigger ones just isnt working. Much, much to my dismay, been pulling my hair out trying few differnet paints, shades etc to the pont one of the cruisers has started to look like that tester model in everyones collection. What is the safest paint remover to strip paint without damaging thses models. May try again, but might go with the box standard blue/white which was one of the things that attracted me to them in the first place. (edit) Seen simple green mentioned on another thread, not sure if its the same stuff in the UK as the US as appears to be different to the OZ version???
  15. Nice, they look very menacing.

    RSN fleet

    Thanks WestAustralian, They certainly are awesome models, wanted them way back when they came out. But glad I got around to getting them now. They appear to have been improved from the first version. There will be a dry bushing to a extent, will probably get the air brush on them for the base coat yellow, wash, dry brush and detail by hand.

    RSN fleet

    Hello all, with a some what long (to long) leave of absence from FSA and letting my Terran fleet collect dust I'm back. Shameless link to my Terrans (which I still have a few models yet to finish) if anyone wants to check em out, some might remember them. This time I'm on the other side of the conflict, some shiny new RSN. Picked a few boxes online, payday will see a carrier and some destroyers added to the fight. Thinking of a yellow fleet, a bit grimy, beat up looking. Testing some washes directly on top of a basic bright yellow. Tested with 3 different washes, the two on either side are the same wash but the one on the left has more coats than the other. Going for something like this. Very basic test at the moment. Forgot to say, for the guns, engines and bare metal parts will be a mix of bare metal and copper colours.
  18. Hello, thanks Ryjak. It was that PDF I had been looking at, certainly gave me something to go on.
  19. Ha, just searching for these myself and I'm surprised to see this topic(coincidence), seems I'm not the only one. Just getting back into the game(yet to get a game, seems its dried up in my area ) , using the old models before I invest ££'s. Not to sure I want to now tbh, as seems a lot of the original ships have long gone. Gutted the Templar class was disscontinued and from above info down graded, not overly a fan of some of the new look terran cruisers. Been looking for the Templar class for 2-3? years now on ebay and likewise sites. Never seen them, lucky I have a squadron of 3 myself.
  20. Ah right, thanks for the reply.
  21. Hello all, It's been a while since I played FSA, just as the 2nd ed book came out. Lately my interest in the game came back around when giving my Terran fleet a rightful space on the shelf in the display area while rearranging the gaming room. Been trying to catch up over the last week, read the rule book, online info etc, seems a lot has happened since then. Mainly looking to carrying on playing/collecting Terran, and looking to buy a few boxes of Syndicate as the ships are dam nice(amongst others). However I'm finding not a lot of info on them in regards to real life play. I have seen a good pdf(from this forum) which went into depth but I think was based more of general FSA game playing rather then fielding them directly. I'm not looking for a win button at all. But from what I've generally seen, are they fairly weak? how do they compare to other fleets? just looking for a broader range of experience. Looking to play them as a pure fleet rather than allies to my Terran. Also, do I need the rift rule book to play the Syndicate fully? Thanks
  22. Will I get this ship, I think yes. Will it be part of my Veydreth fleet, yes I think it will. SG, get these model cast and on the store. My wallet demands it.
  23. Nice! at this rate SG are going to make me do overtime at work. Would seem we all want to do them Reaver style.
  24. OMG! OMG! I squealed like a little girl when I saw that ship. Sooooo chuffed that these guys are coming, its the one faction I wanted the most to be done. I would find that pic of fry from futurama but the quote will do "shut up and take my money"
  25. Actually more a dark crystal skeksis flashback for me, just the birds there are fatter in that film than the way the Xelociains are described.
