WestAustralian's FSA Fleets

Recommended Posts

It's time for a restart. 

I painted through the first few months of the breakdown but in the end group interests changed to another game. I still have the other stuff on my painting spot, but time for FSA to rejoin the mix. 

Those of you who know me, know I have lots of stuff scattered in various stages. When I get time to paint, I sit Dow and pick something from the mix. 

I am preparing for the "Painting Challenge" or "Paint Along" that is being discussed in the FSA hobby thread. These are the Factions I am picking from. 

STL Traders:

Very few miniatures, so easy to paint them all. However I have always planned a worn Battleship Grey look, it is a bit boring for a challenge. 

 

Oroshan:

Extra T2's and T3's mean that if I don't include them in the challenge, I might not easily return to finish them. Also I think the Oroshan will need more time spent getting it how I want.

Xelocian:

Too many Escorts.... Again, will I paint them all. Dreadnought for the T1....

 

Well I am still thinking it through. Still plenty of time to decide.

Thanks for looking

I am leaning toward picking the xelocians. 

I only have 1 big Xelocian ship. And I worry that I will spend too much time on the Oroshan if I pick them. I still have other stuff I need to paint over the next 3 months. 

I think the Xelocian will be my choice. The others can wait. I need to write some fiction for my Xelocian's now. I need to update my Fiction Thread. I have written more, I just need pics to go with it. 

Speaking of pics, here are a couple of photos from the Forum down time, sorry if I repeat anything old

I have done some work on my Preparations for the painting challenge

All miniatures are are cleaned and assembled. I also drill all my peg holes deeper. It helps keep the mini on its base. 

The Frigates will be the first month, the cruisers second, and thirdly the dreadnought with tokens and 3 escorts. 

The other 6 escorts will be done in the background across the 3 months. 

I hope to undercoat the lot before the challenge. I hope to put brush to them on the first of Feb. 

i still have lots of other branded stuff I am painting. It will be nice to be on FSA again. 

Thanks for looking. Sorry there is nothing with fresh paint yet. I will do some work on my Dindrenzi fleet for next week. 

Comments and likes appreciated

Thanks for the great comments guys.

So just getting a quick update in on general painting progress. 

I have been putting brush to Dindrenzi trying to get my Patrol Sized Force Finished.

These are the frigates I had done previously:

I have also gotten some undercoat on my Xelocian T3's. Bad Planning has left me at the start of the month with an almost empty spray can. So I could only paint 2 ships. But as I usually fully paint a ship to test a scheme, then follow up with the rest of the squadron, this should not be a problem

I am looking forward to the Painting Challenge next month, hopefully lots of Painters take part.
