Wow fantastic paint job! Great job on the modeling aspects too. Easier to see now. It all works great together and the muted steel tones make it blend together seamlessly. Unlike the one featured in white Dwarf back in the day which looked like a bunch of cruisers badly parked on an asteroid...

Looking really good man. The browns and greys look really nice together.

 Grots peer out from a multitude of bolt holes rubbing their tiny hands together in excited anticipation.  Very nice work, you make it look easy bro.

Thanks for the kind words :)

Ive just been painting some of the sorylian ships and will have them as a merchant fleet, which will be freighters and luxury liners with the odd decoy, which is a light cruiser or cruiser but in a luxury liners shell, a few special rules that were in waro storm if i recall, but the full story on my next video as I will be better discussing it in person. but there will be a blog post and additional post here for them.
Pictures of those coming tomorrow night as got a bit on this evening with transfering plants into their rightful place :)

Good evening everyone and welcome to the next blog post.
So this is not going to be a very long post and also not pic heavy...

As in the last post, I mentioned I have acquired a sorylian collective fleet andplan on using it as a multitude of mercahnt and freighter vessels. Mainly as objectives in missions and each will have a different livery for the larger ships and for the smaller ones, a mixture to know what they carry at a glance. Some will also be converted to be passenger vessels and also a hospital ship is on the cards too.
So any way here are a few photos of finished ships, four so far but another two almost done, including the hospital ship.

Some nice little ships you have there mate. I do like the little yellow one in the second picture. It's rather cute and ramshackle. The yellow paint scheme also gives it a more utilitarian scheme. As if JCB did spaceships in the 41st Millenium. (maybe they do?)

Thanks,  that's the aim I had with the small one. I was going to do wasp stripes as a danger warning for fuel carrier duties but not sure it would work so stuck to just yellow. I do have 12 of the blighters so will likely do three schemes, four of each.

Hey, i love the small yellow one too ! Do you know where it comes from ? Very nice shape :)

The long one on the first picture seem not really great, while with the second painting schema it's nice. Painting job is so important...

The one with the turquoise is my favourite I must admit. The others were done to show how different companies would maybe do their ships haha.

The small ones are spartan games escorts for the sorylian collective although no longer available. If you want a couple, drop me a PM and I can send my two spares :) providing postage isnt too bad...
