  1. Yeah, pretty much this. The cloak rule works ok, and the Relthoza are entirely built around it. I'd avoid massive, sweeping changes.
  2. Looking very sharp there! I may steal the idea of adding glow effects to the destroyer "intakes". My only criticism is that your wing tokens might disappear on a black play surface. They are kinda dark, and aren't set off by a flight stand.

    With a little blade work, you might be able to fit the center section of a Dindrenzi cruiser hull between the two halves of a Directorate cruiser hull. (Sorta the way the RotO Gunship fits together). That would give you one heck of a unique conversion.
  4. "Mixed Cruiser Squadrons", page 40 in my downloaded rulebook.
  5. I have heard that very long term soaking in simple green, or similar cleaners, can have a negative effect on resins, but I haven't tried it. (I regularly use simple green for metal.) For acrylic paints, I have found that high strength isopropyl "rubbing alcohol" is very effective at stripping paint. You can find it in strengths up to 99% if you search hard enough. Try pouring a little on and wiping off the paint with a cloth of some kind.
  6. I have also converted over to Hawk Widgets. I actually use two per ship: One on the model, and one on the base. It allows me to break down the stand and pack it away into a very small space.
  7. The paint looks wonderful. You put together and executed a beautiful scheme, on a huge fleet. The only part that seems a touch odd to me are the tails on the Orca BCs. Are those standard?
  8. Thanks for stopping by! We don't have a regularly scheduled game day for Firestorm, but we do play when we can. As Zak said, more players are always welcome, if you're local. Also, as a long time miniatures hoarder gamer, I don't understand this thing you call "one fleet"
  9. OSL is largely about blending your light color into the base color underneath it. You can do that with patient glazing using thin paints. You can do it much faster with an airbrush, but (IMO), you have to use somewhat translucent pigments to get it to look right. I would also recommend applying the glow effect using a slightly darker color than your brightest light effect. It brings out the engine as the light source, and makes the light cast on the hull look more like cast illumination than source light. It's a tricky effect to do well, but you're starting out well, and asking the right questions. Keep it up!
  10. Very nicely done! I am definitely going to steal your lighting pattern for the R&D compressor beams when I get around to painting them.
  11. Thanks for the clarification, Alex. I can imagine that things are more than a little busy over at Spartan with the Halo launch.
  12. If you're an experienced player, you can also come by to play a quick demo-level game, or just say 'hello'.
  13. Hello all, I've been partially out of the loop for a few weeks, so I may have missed the answer to this, but: Were the statistics for the Aquan and Directorate ships from the RotO box set ever posted as PDFs? I looked in the downloads section, but didn't spot them anywhere.
  14. It plainly doesn't include other starships, so I'd say you're good on dust.
