Thanks guys :D

To be fair, the later Fanatic/Specialist games stuff was all pretty poor. The Dark Eldar ships, Tau and Imperial Grand Cruisers are all awful in my opinion. The Space station suffers from that era as well. It's just random bits of weapon batteries and turrets covered with awkward bits of plasticard. Plasticard that's not even stuck or cut straight. Don't get me started on the later Inquisitor 54mm models *shudders*

I'd rather have that warhound than the Inquisitor Genestealer...

The genestealer? Man, that wasn't even that bad. The Callidus assassin, the Stevedores....... Man. They make the Genestealer look good  :o

Anyway, I had an old miscast Conveyor that has been kicking around since the very first batch. It was a bit knackered after I let my little'un play with it and paint it as well.......... but it was still workable and after some TLC turned out ok I think. I had an idea about a more rounded prow with a little flight bay on the underneath as well. Also changed the 'Mass Pods' to ones more like the art work.

The conversion and paint job is a bit of a rush job. I did it all today.

Thanks chaps! Well, bit busy with work at the moment so not really done anything other than build a shed load of Falchions and convert and spruce up my old cruisers. In regards to a light cruiser. What do people like more, a Dauntless style hull (with Voss prow) or an Endeavour style hull?

Well. Everyone seems to love the endeavour style but I put that down to how short lived the line from gw were.
Also the ability to swap out the plastic gundecks etc is obviously favourable, conversion wise.
It seems that these days we seem to be comparitively swamped with third party versions of them.
I've done enough that's for sure!
However, I've never seen a voss prow on a dauntless hull. would be interesting to see for sure... I toyed with the idea couple 'o' years back now as I had a load of Voss prows but dauntless' are hard to come by. Now even more...

Think I might end up doing one of each to be fair. Or at least an endeavour with a Voss style row for dauntless conversions. We'll see! I have some holiday booked next week and the week after so expect some plasticard shenanigans in the near future :D

Right, been touching up some of my old Voss ships. Nothing major, a bit of neatening up and I removed the Lances for launch bays. Not before I added magnets to everything though so I can swap the weapons. I also spruced up my Battleship with magnets and a little more effort into the paintjob.




Also managed to get through 12 out of 18 falchion escorts. I've always hated that narrow mid ship corridor thing. So removed it. Kinda like it. They look gooty, stubby and pretty low tech. Perfect for my fleet really :D




I've had the majority of a battleship kicking around for ages. It's missing the front section and I had been hoping to pick one up on ebay at some point. Alas, none have appeared so I have decided to bite the bullet and make the missing part. I have now realised how much work is actually involved in doing this and wish I hadn't started :( But, I have started. And I WILL finish it. Dammit. Gonna go for a more armoured up Voss style prow. Basically a scaled up version of the Falchion escort prow.

Thanks guys. Really regretting starting this now. I'm in awe of the original builders now, the detail on these ships is amazing and you just don't appreciate it until you try and copy it. I'm also regretting it because...... because a new battleship means a new fleet.... So, what shall I do with this fleet then? :D

More Ships on the go. Yes, there are a lot of eclectic models on my painting table right now. (OSJC, recognise the one on the top right?)
