Okay, as I was wrapping up on the pylons, I got hit with a mad, no insane inspiration for making a team of bits slapped together, I had Wargamefactory torsos, Dreamforge legs, and GW arms and heads and weapons

I have placed an order for some more of the Murder-Monkeys-from-Outerspace

For a way to help flesh out the Yaogat commandos, a Axe wielding, sniper



This guy as they are going to release him some company, I can't wait!



And the Warrior-Priests of Muscle Planet, armor can't contain the Powah!

So, I was expecting the supply drop on Monday, but seems it hit early today! Paints from Reaper and the latest Miniatures from Miniature Market, two different guys with similar poses as the Morats seem left handed for the most part. the Daturazi may actually be of such a set of options as to have the ability to buy another box and make them an 8-man squad of close combat shredding machines!, well, maybe not, but still, they have some good weapons and parts, and these guys look as big as the normal troops w/o the full armor!

Primers for days! I am now set for a while with black and white primers
[/img]


colored paints, sample is a swampy/undead green, more adamantium black to cover my Murder Monkeys dark colored armor some metallic colors as well and the really dark military armor gray
[/img]


Base coat on the pylons as well done, now for highlights, dry brush and weathering
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]


Corvus Belli seems to love set poses and use it on so many figures. But the details on these figures is so crisp and will be good for my forces. And the Yagat is a bad ass as his axe is the same used by both the Daturazi and the Sogarat Heavy armor guy.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

Speaking of Daturazi,,,these will also allow much of the skin mod I use for the paints on these guys as much as I have done with the Oznats and the red tribal marks which hold certain meanings to these guys. Box had some glare, so two shots to show.
[/img]
[/img]

Bag 1 of arms and weapon options
[/img]

Bag 2 of arms and weapon options

4 figures 2 basic poses each

Got carried away yet again with painting my "Murder Monkeys" so from blister to this for the Yaogat sniper
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]


And the Suryat lone figure, who will eventually be joined by 3 other Suryats and a tinbot shield bearer
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]


Daturazi are so heavily muscled I can see why they hardly need much for armor. (early stages for the skin and hair)
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

after the lighter skin was added, I have to re-do the hair, as the highlight is darker that that skin which is a mix of weathered stone and their base skin tone of amethyst purple, the hair is based in Imperial Purple, then uses the amethyst as highlight, wash used was watered down clear purple.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]


Then I almost forgot to work on the Yaogats' face and add his pale skin mix!
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

One last shot of the lone Suryat! His mask makes him look as angry as any of his kind would look, maybe he will cheer up when I can get the squad for him.

Well, honestly, where i think the connections will be looks weak, I drill/pin before super-gluing the parts together, on other areas, they have a good solid connection block and hole. so breeze for some things, pinning for others.

There are still more of these killer simians to get, and some seem waiting on re-sculpts methinks.

But at least I have a scheme that suits them.

Thanks! I love the dioramas you and stonned astartes have produced, good side bits for different alien races. Good luck to you as well!

I actually have looked at using a mouthwash bottle, maybe scale down to a smaller one, but that will take time until it is used up. My current option is quite large, but looks to fit the part with the right add ons.

Not sure I will use it, but if I do, horizontal, split the front, add other sections to add engines and grav repulsion, weapons etc.,

I also have some Halo inspired designs in my head now.

As an alternate option on using bottles and the like for futuristic craft, look at orientating the bottle with it's wide "axis" vertical rather than horizontal: less car-shaped and more bike-shaped.

Not always the best option, but may make a slightly unusual shape into a crazy-futuristic-what is that? shape.

The one I have is quite big, almost baneblade sized as is, I may got for something totally different with a drawn and cut shape as I have the plastic card stock to go that way as well. Still lot of thoughts flashing about. But thanks, that adds another option to the mix.

Thanks Tom! I have flocked almost all my force, except for a pack of Hungries, they need the paint brush lovin' first, but the Morats are ready for a flat coat just about. I need to order the jeweler glasses so I can fix faces.

I will have pics of the based Morats, I went through all of them and made them a mix of rocky terrain with grass so it should look interesting.

Another option is to work off an existing model as a base. One good choice is the AMT Ertl 1/72 scale Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Danube Class Runabout. I have an old one just for that purpose, and I've seen some good work done with them.

Those mouthwash bottle tops make nice holders for minis while you are painting them. The conical shape makes them less likely to tip. They aren't slippery to hold either.

Grass on Infinity minatures is a bit unusual. Off the top of my head, only the Acontecimento minis have it. However, since the Murder Monkeys are on a jungle planet, it is fitting and proper. Maybe brown instead of gray on the bases-- dirt instead of gravel.

I like the grass, adds a nice touch. It is unusual on Infinity models as it seems they are always based as clean city dwellers. Always fancied doing them as something akin to I am Legend myself, kind of a shiny clean city, slightly reclaimed by jungle. In that your bases would fit perfectly. Your prolific as always, so many models.

Thanks guys! Yeah, at first I was giving them the "scorched earth to their bases, I have no clean urban bases for them, and the idea of them encroaching an abandoned and over grown city for data retrieval or some such mission is appealing.

And I am also working on adapting them for some unique WH40K play if I get the chance.

Hmmm, save the caps for the mounting of minis for paint work eh? Interesting idea.

Well, I went back to a stalled project of the Ba-10, it's original bumper was lost, so I made a replacement bumper. Hope it looks good I will add "rivets" to the plate joins out front.

with a friend
[/img]


The Ba-100 is the armored car that works in the same role as the Sentinel an other walkers. It is light, yet is crewed by 4 men, and the driver and comms officer sit in the front, where the comms man can fire the heavy stubber in the front. The commander/gunner and his loader man the turret, and uses the auto-cannon"45" with the coaxial heavy stubber. It has armor layout comparable to the heavy sentinel, but the speed of a wheeled vehicle. It also carries adapters for the rear tires so it can travel on both snow, sand, and mud as if it were a half-track. Many of the K.U.U.R. outer Republics find this an easier vehicle to maintain than Sentinels and other walkers, as well as use them as rapid response vehicles to act as vanguards until heavier tanks arrive on the scene.

The Caldraani make do by copying items of equipment they scavenge from the derelict freighters they scour of hostile warp entities, or pirates trapped where the ships drift in through a subspace eddy current. Thus far they have adapted their kit with ballistic suits and leg carapace from a lost shipment from Kruegeria, torso body armor from the triple angel system, and they make masks and prosthetic found on several old Adeptus Mechanics wrecks they have scavenged. These last were the toughest to copycat, but they managed as their world is not a safe place to travel over the surface, the toxic dust that kicks up when the wind blows requires that their settlements be underground and have static dust collection entry ways. They have also found the purgative power of flamers and heavy flamers to be efficacious, and trusty weapons when cleansing derelicts and hulks. Las pistols as seen here also make their way to the use of the army as seen by the comms officer above.

The rotary Puncher pistol is also a nice weapon they have adapted to as it sends out bolts that pierce armor with a slightly explosive charge from an isotope added to the shot, this can result in the target suffering from radiation as well as torn limbs and other heinous injuries from the pistol.. The drum rifles are accurate, and have a decent range that can match the Tau though it is still similar in damage to the rusty lasgun. This drum-rifle is the mainstay pf the Caldraani regiments.

Finally, another unique weapon they have made as a knock off of another gun is the "Long shot anti armor rifle" this weapon as can be seen is heavy class, and fires a single round per turn of combat at a decent range, and is a weapon that can do damage glancingly on a Leman Russ front glacis, but works better on lower armor plates of lesser vehicles.

Is black.

Although, some bits are not as black as the rest...?
Not as easy to get into these nooks and crannies with a brush as it is with as spray, but if you don't do it before painting proper you'll regret it later.

Now I also wanted to give some other idea of how small it is alongside another small vehicle, any one familiar with the Hasslefree "Fire-Wasp" scout car. Now the fire-wasp seats three men, the Ba-10 four, but they also serve different purposes as one is a combat car, the other a scout/report car.

Here is the paired cars for showing their size difference.

And Corvus Belli indeed has them all based in an outdoor style, the humans have the clean urban style bases as seen in the box covers for them.

I did mean to do it with a brush. While it's all black you can slap it on to get into all the gaps and not worry about messing up a paint job.

Yeah, a second bit of brush with a smaller head will be next for that guy.

Now as for what came in my mail yesterday,,,,Dire-foes pack had this fellow, Poor Angus, always getting messed up and never quite able to grasp things mentally as to why he "screws up" he was two pieces and a base. Head to body then base. Just 2 images, front and back

Front

Back

His "friend" and co-squad member, and his combat medic, body/arm/hair/med bag

And their foe, Spec-Ops Treitak known as Anyat, a scary female Morat, rifle in hand, pistol on her hip, and she is not merely brushing her long hair out of the way, she is pulling her short sword of a knife!Had to repossition and cut what you see , some green stuff will also be needed as they did not cut her quite right for the parts to lign up.

Now the guy from the Suryats who has the missile launcher has the basic torso with the front as part of the mold so backpack and helmet get passed along with single piece arms. Fairly good build, like the Suryat with HMG which is slightly smaller than the new set, even though he happens to be the 1st wave of new sculpted Suryats! But here is the easiest of the bunch to make. Seems the Morats use rivets for their shoulder shields!

[/img]


Here we have the standard trooper using a rifle with a under-slung flame thrower, his left arm is in 2 parts, forearm is part with the rifle, the shoulder section is separate, his right hand is part of the rifle, and he gets a single arm, wrist to shoulder. The new torso is a middle form that you must glue the chest to the center, and then add in the backpack unit of the torso, then you can add the head. Here he is

So finally the squad leader of the Suryat squad, he has a rifle w/attached flamer, and a longer blade that counts as a sword due to how long it is. Torso also was in the back-front torso, the arms were one pieces, weapons molded with the arms.

So that is the bear metal minis assembled so far and ready for primer and painting.

Tin bot is a walking item that reflects a form of 4+ inv save, if it works, it can be reused again, if it fails, it is removed as destroyed gear. For the Morats, aka Ga' Vra' Ku, it is a tool, nothing more.

Space Monkey Mafia! LOL! They make offers you canna refuse! Yeah, the damaged ones just have the light slits colored, I intend to make them much more "glowy looking" on the intact DZ buildings I have to catch up on.True that so far I have smallish buildings, but I see them as upper surface structures, the main rooms and functional stuff is below ground, where the real action is, LOL!

Okay, I know it needs a update sculpt from Corvus Belli, but I will be working on some fixing of this as that area where the pilot is supposed to have her legs is too tiny looking, so Greenstuff and some angled plasticard will be required for her legs to look comfy



And as he was looking at retirement, maybe one "old timer" I mean they have to work on updates for the Zerats as well, but I still got the two of them, and the dire foes has the female modern Treitak, figured the one guy with a axe an pistol would be interesting, I will hide his face (old morat goofy face) with the sensor mask, he may also not be as tall or burly as the newer sculpts, but hey, he has to sneak and infiltrate some

The treitak is relatively new, but still with the older Morat faces of the past, so I will use the mask to hide the difference.

I have heard others say the Raicho needs something as it is too small in the pilot arms and the area where her feet and legs would be, so a little work with added on stuff is in order. If they re-sculpt the Raicho, I suspect the price will go up for being a re-sculpt with more details, maybe a little large, and a larger round base.

Yeah, make wonder if she sits, or is laying on an angle, hence the skirt thing? the arms are small, but almost the same size as the Zerat, and the recent images are of a female pilot for the Raicho T.A.G. suits.

And I am back with more markings on my Morats, tribal marks, clan marks, whatever one takes from my added bits to shoulder pads, it makes for some interesting speculation among the intelligence community as to what the reddish marks mean on these guys.

Well, the starter set started with like 6 miniatures, most of the other packs are 2-4 strong, and then the single packs added all build up. I put the hungries with the Oznat t and get 5 units a squad there for example, attack a Raktorak to a team get 5 troopers Vanguard unit of 8 is actually the 4-man special team, the 3 that came in the starter, and a Raktorak, Suryat started with one guy, then they made the new 3 man set with the tinbot, so 4 Suryats and a bot, you get the pattern. They ever come out with a new pose and weapon idea for the big Sogarats, I will have a 3 man team of those.

These Razyats are of older sculpts, like the male Treitak, they seem weedier than the latest sculpt style, but they are as dangerous as their beefier companions.

The base underneath the Klingon cruiser is that a 25mm one, could the length be about the size of a BFG battleship?
I have a few gashapon ones in a box somewhere should base them also.

Those Razyats, why do they wear a mecha foot on the back?

Those mini's look interesting but don't look familiar, where did you get those?

Rapid fire questions! Good questions though, so I shall answer each in pieces to be clear for anyone and all.


Yes, it is a 25mm miniature base, all of the ships are getting either the 25mm if stable enough, and some have and will get 40mm bases. My BoP cruiser is big enough to warrant it.

The Razyats are jump troopers and that is the old sculpts, so they have a odd design of jet-pack, the Rodoks use assited nydraulic jump boots and anti-gravitic packs, I wonder just how radical the new sculpted Razyats will look?

The ones in baggies? they are from Brother Vinni, all of them are from mainly his "Nuclear Sandlot" series, and his river fear I think is part of his girls series, but she fits in as a Mirelurk Queen/King type monster. I will post picks as I have assembled them, and i had to order display

bases so more 25mm, 40mm and 55mm bases on the way! the "tricycle bot" aka "Not Sentry bot" is too widely stanced for a 40mm base!

The 2 rascals and raider girl will be one trio of adventuring types

The large well armed tricycle bot and 2 Lamia bots will help make the robot faction grow. Brother Tech priest will grow them some, the chain-gunner will boost my Veteran Ranger team.


So keep watching for more imagery to come, so many figures to paint!

Nice.

Oddly enough some of the designers for the Star Trek series ships see the old smooth ships as the more modern designs and that the older designs get more plates and other things until they can grow into smoother technology, and the Constitution class can run circles and outfight the NX-01 class 2 [part episode "A mirror Darkly" later season of Enterprise will let you see this in action. Rememeber, Enterprise they don;t have voice computers, nor the weapons ans shielding of Kirk's era

Yes damage to be scored on the Fed ships, Connie and Reliant are done, I also have a Miranda and defiant waiting on their decals, working on gold paint on a Galor class Cardassion cruiser, and there is also a Ferengi Marauder to work on as well ship wise.

Hi all, back on track with some work on my 1/1000 scale Klingon D-7 class battle cruisers, the Polar lights decals also came with placement instructions as well as a break down of the "letters" and "numbers in Klingon script. I can change the registery as I discovered the basic one is simply "D-7-4" - is implied. I even customized the letters for the ships' name on the right wing. Of course as a TOS era vessel and of the 1/1000 scale version of the basic 1960's model, I decided to "modernize" my models and took it further with also painted on features and add on stuff. I have some minor touch ups to do, but overall, I am liking where my mind has taken things.

I present to all the D-7-4 IKS ch' I' H' ong I start with the wing, decals and waist phasers present
[/img]

Warp Nacelles, with tip Heavy Disruptor Cannons(silvery band on the wrap-around armor looking bit
[/img]
[/img]

Boom with windows.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

Primary hull, aka pod, three phaser hard points, torpedo launcher, and two tractor beam modules. and running lights
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]


Shoulder phaser and ch' I' H' ong name
[/img]

Other shoulder phaser with D-7-4/Klingon Trefoil
[/img]

Aft of the hull with Mk-VI Impulse system, excess gas vents, torpedo launcher,, drone launch tubes for attack drones or probes. and over it all, the shuttle bay
[/img]
[/img]

I still have the other cruiser to do, but there are just slight differences

So IKS ch' I' H' ong at 260meters, packing Photon torpedo launchers, 1 tube forward, and one tube aft, 2 x engine mounted Disruptor Cannons Mk-IV, 4 x waist mounted Phaser II defensive phasers, 3 chin mounted and 2 shoulder mounted Phaer 1 offensive/defensive phasers, 2 drone and one probe launcher tubes aft.

So ch' I' H' ong is a beast of war of a starship, she is purely all business, and no fooling around! Her refit to this much power in weapon upgrades, other systems such as hull integrity fields, deflector shields, and warp and impulse engines makes not just for a powerful bruiser of a cruiser, but for her size, she is dangerously nimble, and can hit warp 7.5 easily and make a emergency run of warp 9 for approximately 12 hrs safely. The colors of the ch' I' H' ong indicate it is owned by Klingon House K' reen, ruled by Keon Epetai K' reen and they have trade route concerns for their cargo run vessel, as well as duty to guard parts of the Klingon Border.

Thanks Cam, and for some difference, I will post images up of the ch' I' H' ong with new "war-paint" while I will leave the other 1/1000 scale cruiser in plain greens.

Now I got a new arrival for my 1/2500 scale fleet, It is similar in size to the K' Tinga, the D-4 cruiser which was made for season 1 episode 5 of Enterprise.

All the parts that came in the small package. Impulse vents, warp nacelles, and the unified wing/boom
[/img]

Being on a stand, K' Tinga appears bigger.
[/img]


It is small compared to the D-7 Battlecruiser
[/img]


All assembled and I added the additional struts that could be added at such a small scale.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

I have more rods for struts, a second D-4 is on the way on the mail. I now want to get the 1/1000 scale version along with the K' Tinga they have

Assembled and posed with the K' Tinga
[/img]

with the D-7
[/img]


And posed with both the K' Tinga and the D-7
[/img]

It has very long nacelles, but as can be seen, the secondary hull(wings), is smaller than the K' tinga, and overall, is a smaller, lighter cruiser therefore smaller crew it is also with less decks than the other two, The pod is closer to the K' tinga in scale, with again less decks, and the "Hate is 1 deck. One can only imagine how cramped it is for the cranky Klingon warriors assigned to it.

Oh 1/2500 scale is the largest "gaming scale" there is. I think attack wing is much smaller as these ships are over 3inches long. I think STAW is 1/3788 or so scale.

Here are the D-7/K' tinga/D-4 as a group.

Nice. It's impressive to see them all together. I'm kind of surprised though. I had thought the birds of prey were smaller than D7s. My star trek lore is kind of fuzzy though.

There are different sized Birds of Prey, tiny 3-man model that was seen in DS-9 as fighter types, the scout birds as seen in the Motion Pictures, small cruisers and massive heavy cruisers, in 1/2500 scale, that is a the one the size of a heavy cruiser aka K' vort, the one the Duras sisters used in the movie was a B' rel class scout

And I have yet to finish my "Not-Fallout" stuff as well, and I must paint stars on the bots white instead of yellow. But so many older and new murder monkey stuff to play with, and I just read their section of the N3 rulebook, seems they are also quite Klingon in their style and culture, very soldiery, and survival of the fittest.

So I considered leave the 2nd one plain as is, or do some different style warpaint on the D-7?

I am looking to give myself a Klingon birthday with a 1/1000 scale D-4 and older style (Enterprise) BoP model. Sadly it has been sold out, so a resin K' tinga will do

Of which ship? the D4 will be slightly smaller than the D7s

Comparing wing hulls with the D7, it's bigger cousin

So, as can be seen from the images of the wing sections of both the cruisers, the D4 would have a smaller crew,(someone gave it the same 430 personnel as a D7/Connie obviously with no concept of actual spacing inside a closed hull vessel, and the D4 at most a 300 person crew, more comfortable set up would be 250 at most)

Clean up so far is going okay, and I have drilled holes for the struts and spars.

I like the glow of the torpedo / zappy-death hole at the front.

The impuse engines (or whatever the Kingons would call them, something that sounds like someone sneezing their brain out) look a bit flat green in the photos. I suspect that's in the camera, but maybe some more highlighting of the ridges there?

I used the red/orange/yellow for the Impulse engines and torp launchers to get that sort of effect. I had forgotten to add the darker shade of green for the Warp engines as that is where the greens are put.

Warp engines, I feel bad for those who are green color blind as the differences will not be apparent.

Yep, one of them! Parts had big wings! Anyone it now has more colors to it. I based it in a grey-green then gave it a Thrakka wash, then dry brushed the original color back onto it. I did the impulse engines and reactor in red, a dark red for the base of the pipes, and then added a bronze to the pipes and torp launcher, covering the deep red which was a base, it makes the bronze interesting! touch up of the green will take place.

Head shots, and the underside shot also shows more details, and the swivel cannons. This Bird packs a lot of the Pew-Pew!

Sorry for the wait guys, I managed to do some skin and hair work on the latest of the Morats, so also based their pants and washed them, then dry brushed, and added the base for the green I use. It is amazing how human like the Morats look, but the lore for them shows they would be physically powerful, and they are a very brutal culture.

But dat booty on her. He has an eyepatch. Boith seem to prefer two weapons
[/img]
[/img]

More of the guns, and based on her outfit, Raicho suits must get hot
[/img]

Back of her hair with the neuro system I see she uses, all attached to the helm-mask, and he is simply ripped and swolle
[/img]

So, still work to be done on those two.
[/img]


Of the Ga' Vraa soldiers infiltrating and hunting in our regions of space, we have learned of a lone battle suit pilot named Zerika, she is a large pilot, and also a very aggressive one, her battle-suit is something that can rival a Tau model for defenses and firepower, but it has been observed that so far Ga' Vra, or Ga' Vra' Ku suits do not seem to have jump jets or anti-grav ability, making them closer to a Space Marine dreadnought in practice, and that can be a problem all it's own as that gives the Ga' Vra some serious support capability on their raids. Zerika seems to like the use outside her suit of two large pistols, which can fire magnetically accelerated metal pieces at high velocity. Her Mag-Pistols also show a large ammunition hopper so she likely has a ways to go in a fight before she has to reload. But that was only because her suit was severely damaged and had to be shut down for recovery by her raiding force.

Kerak is a odd one of his kind, instead of packs, he prefers to fight alone, and will go to combat using two Mag-Rifles which he wields as if they were pistols! He has enough armor to protect himself, and he has a nasty surprise if he is overwhelmed in combat, a Tase-mine, meant to render his attackers unconscious if he should fall and cease to send the halt code via synaptic impulses, a very nasty one, as he would hate for the raid party to waste meat for meals. Kerak works alone as he would not want other Ga' Vra to be knocked out when his mine goes off.

Thank you, I will stick with the "Green-Knight" then. the kits are very good.

Thanks again! they do have a lot of exposed skin, so less of the heavy armor.

Sweet. It's nice to see those kick-ass walkers in the limelight. And I like the idea of using the colors to designate the knights. It's got a nice Macross vibe when doing that.

Well, Knights are supposed to have heraldic colors splashed on at spoots, I figured I would add them, after all, even in the K.U.U.R. some of the soldiers/warriors are stand outs amongst the masses!

Plum, the model company has it listed as 1/35 scale, like many modern tanks and such, so the chest cockpit is roomy enough for a 40k pilot!

I also have some terrain paint updates. I have almost finished the Administration surface building, and the surface for Booty Bumper Bar and Grill, Adult Entertainmanet. you go in, dedal with reception/coat check, then go down stairs or the lift for any disabled folks, and do what you went to either building for.

Administration, painted to look like weathered stone, for that look of authority for the Mayor, sheriff, and municipal departments. the window allows folks to see if reception has a qeue.
[/img]

Entrance is set so the building can deal with lines, and also do that whole leadership building thing.
[/img]

Back window to light the reception desk and lower level entry ways for visitors
[/img]
[/img]

Balcony with walls for both public announcements and defense.
[/img]



Booty Bumpers for colonist relaxation needs and other stuff multi-colored outer walls to help folks find the place

Of the many products by LenCo, a subsidiary of Lenzabi-Corp, the LenCo hab walls that are made on arrival at colonies from container parts that held the parts/food-stuffs/seeds/fertilizers/animals, etc the colony needed; are also made with Len-Chrome lighting strips!
That's right, why have the inefficiency of walls, and ceilings needing wires and appliances separately, when they can be "all in one"? The beauty of the light strips is that they are made to last! No light bulbs to replace, and with new containers, well, if they do stop working, there will be replacements available from the depot master! (He or she will be a duly authorized sales representative of the company to sell you those replacement walls). Paint will depend on local hardware salesmen.

"Here, the enterprising proprietor of this Lounge used several color options(easily programmable), and made them offset the paints he used to paint his outer surface attraction unit! My how colorful! " "So, if you are looking to build and accessorize on a far distant colony or some low cost housing set up closer to the core worlds, try LenCo container/building supplies equipped with Len-Chrome wiring and lighting today!"
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]


Now here, as with most government on colonies administrations go, the leader5s here went with a more conservative, and authoritative color pattern for their central offices surface section.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

That ios my work so far with the intact Mantic terrain pieces fore the colonial buildings I have so far, some touch ups are needed, and then the tower in my usual military colors.

Good work, Shas'. Nice effort on the signage, very cheeky.

I quite like the look of your grey, patchy / streaky, undercoat you have on the walls. Would be good for a worn / broken ruin with some washes thrown at it.

Thank you Dr.H, I do have shaky hands, and that was all hand work with my smallest brushes!

I have the ruins that look too clean so far, and will do that to them, and washes, and blast blackening and fire soot like work, on them. They are currently clean and would show what a normal store or hab unit might look like before the damages.

First the smaller subterranean hab entry that got hit. Pretty much the people deal with shaking off mud , dirt, or other such things then go down below to their apartments, the upper section, well that would be where the manager/super-intendent lived, pretty much over both A and B apartment zones.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

Now just a place for battling soldiers to use for cover.

The subterranean stores, place where folks could go and get food, clothing, supplies, and tools and or needed weapons as wild life on alien worlds can be dangerous. though at low power, the light strips still welcome folks.

Looking good Shaso

I never understood painted spaceships. I think all space ships should be differing shades of grey as the metal plates are all made individually and then assembled. But painting in space would be hard and not very cost efficient. Even if you had a star port big enough to bring the ship into an atmosphere, the time requirements let alone the space needed to store the paint would be ludacris.

Just my two cents.

Great work on the scenery, nice and colourful.

It's kinda funny, what Theo is saying is always on my mind too, though I am sure the Federation ships are relatively standard and probably do come in a uniform colour, I always think of Klingon as slightly rusty hulks, more than painted, Struggle with them taking that much care about appearance, over function. Especially when you can't see them most of the time!

But I also have the Red Dwarf in mind, and I guess they could maybe come up with magnetic paint.

Good work, Shas'.

Have you ever considered using masking tape to help reduce the amount of touching up you need to do? I think it'd be worth looking into and would have been really useful for all those straight lines.

As for painting in space, electrostatics is all you need. It's how they spray-paint both sides of a car panel in one go now, never mind in the distant future.

Or, as Cam' said, give people PD for when they give their crewmates magic mushrooms.

Thanks Theo

Well, you don't want ships with light reflecting if they are meant to fight other ships, and with the Star Trek replicators can mass produce the electrostatic paint needed like Cam and Prof. H said below.

Federation ships are always shiny as they are not looking to hide, and don't need to as they have parts on-board that are like fat deposits they can lose in battle, where the lean mean Klingon ships do not. ;P

Red Dwarf and all that electrostatic red paint!

I have,, but the small cut tape is a bit too fiddly, so I tend to just live with touching up.

It's a fair point.
I've used one or two lengths of tape before to get straight lines and then moved them around as I've moved about the model. Not cut to shape/length, just quick and dirty.

Was just curious if you had when you mentioned touching up the paint.

I am forever touching up the paintwork on my models. Often back and fourth; paint one colour, paint second colour, touch up first, touch up second, touch up first again...
So I also tend to try and find good ways to avoid it.

I also regularly use a moist brush to "erase" any painting slips before it dries.
I have a couple of old brushes where the bristles have worn down to a short stub with works really well for this technique.

It was a good question, and yeah, I may "touch up" the old cruiser several times before I stop, LOL

I have used blue tape on larger projects to help keep a straight line like on the British style stripes on super-heavy tanks.

Hmm Moist brushes as eraser types, I also have worn brushes that could wortk that way, and here I was thinking of using them just as stippling tools!

Okay, I ordered and got the Humans Sphere books and it did come with a female soldier, I also got me some new buildings made of plastic-card stock, so here is the square building. Model 5 for all off world colony needs for those who like to be private, or a young couple just starting out.
[/img]
[/img]

The well made door will keep out unwanted visitors of any kind
[/img]
[/img]

Windows also have their own heavy duty slid down shutters, making this model a personal fortress!
[/img]
[/img]


But for one or two people, it has enough room for the modern space cabin that it is, and the modular design means it could be stacked, or added onto!
[/img]


Door and shutter panels
[/img]


a ladder can be added to the order for getting to the roof, so one can use it to look from, or add on air systems to make life even more comfortable!
[/img]


The roof is also roomy, so you and your friends can do some lazy-man hunting, or relax with a cooler of beers and loungers!
[/img]


Lots of possibilities with a bare unit!
[/img]
[/img]


Options
[/img]


And as this wall shows, it is fairly easy to assemble our Model 5 cabin once it arrives at your property to start your new life on whatever planet you move to!
[/img]


Color options are endless
[/img]

So act now! Order your Model of cabin from our catalogue today!

It can set up anywhere, on hills for observation post purposes or relay stations, at the edges of towns as defense outposts, in town as Police and emergency posts. It will all really depend upon the tools and equipment the buildings are set up with.

I considered it, but the Axanar or 4yrs War the Klingons had cranked out ships to fight, and they did not seem to worry about cloaking so I went full military with these.

Looks good! Did you get them from shapeways or the official axanar rewards? Any thoughts on how you're going to use them on the tabletop? (I.e. STAW, FASA, SFB, etc)

Glad you like the work on them, I got them from shapeways, they are 1/2500 scale, I lost both my FASA and SFB rules a ways back, so I would have to get rules for star ships to play with them on tabletop. Had I known of the Axanar rewards for helping fund their project, I would have a 1/1000 scale D6 and maybe even an Ares kit in the same scale.

I may have to also look at STAW and see how that works

I almost bought the 1/4000ish scale Ares and D6 they had as rewards but couldn't bite the bullet in the end for a couple of different reasons... but I was very tempted! As for STAW, if you've played X-wing ever then the rules should be familiar since it's a licensed version of the core rules. They've added a few things (like reverse speed and faster speeds), changed some of the names around (focus is called battlestations or something), and generally most ships can use more than one crew but the core rules and mechanics are the same.

Interesting about the rules, and the Ares and D6 were definitely 1/1000 scale same as my Polar Lights D7's and my UGH! models D4 and Enterprise era BoP frigate

I also had to work on the 1/1000 scale K' Tinga as the rersin seemed alone to be unable to handle the weight of the pod section.

I had, but the neodiniums are an extra cost, I may have to try them later and modify the mountings,

Anyway some fluff

Klingon M-4 Strike Cruiser
[/img]
[/img]

This cruiser is a lighter, smaller variant using D-7 components, but due toi the re-design is faster and more maneuverable due to the smaller size and weight reduction. It maintains the 9 disruptor mounts, 2 torpedo tubes and 4 heavy disruptor cannons(engine fronts) of the D-7. but relies on it's nimbler ability to avoid getting hit by enemy fire. This cruiser is made for rapid hit and run attacks, as well as slipping past defense perimeters for commerce raiding as well as landing troops for command missions(Klingon style of course).

The M-4 shows that the Klingon Empire does seem to try and make innovations with their technology just like the Federation or the Romulans. That in peace time the M-4 also makes superb border patrol ships and anti-piracy hunter ships is a testament to it's well crafted design.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Another Klingon cruiser that surprised the Federation in it's design was the D-32 combat cruiser. using a fixed wing in attack position but a more solidified hull, the D-32 is armed with 2 heavy disruptor cannons, as well as 8 disruptors of high output, and a photon torpedo launcher forwards firing a high yield torpedo. This unconventional design showed the Federation that the Klingons had some gifted engineers in the Empire. It still however has the bridge in a forwards setting. Like a Bird Of Prey style ship, the warp and impulse eng8ines are inside the main hull. meanbing the central sections are engines and reactor, the crew are quartered in the outer reaches of the hull.

D-32 is from Multiverse Models.

Thank you, with spare parts, and not needing another USS Enterprise(only decals are for NCC-1701), I merged parts together.

Warning, classified images and report, level sigma 9 clearance in Star-Fleet Command.
The images of that vessel indicate the pirate vessel known as the Reaper..This ship is not affiliated with the Federation, nor the Klingon Empire, yet shows a blend of parts from both, possible internal components from other races as well taken from her victims. Unknown number of crew, but it is surmised that disgruntled, or outcast members from several races may serve aboard her. The Reaper will attack Klingons, Federation, Orions, Romulans, Cardassians or any ship that they come across, she seems to prefer one on one fights, and will run if a squadron confronts her.

Having the Saucer section an warp nacelles from a constitution class visible, the vessel likely sports the launcher for Photon Torpedoes able to fire multiple torps, 6 dorsal phaser mounts and 6 ventral phasers as a saucer like that possesses. the computer and other systems could be a blend at this time. The Impulse vents atop the rear alongside the hangar deck appear to be custom patchwork from other ship parts. the secondary hull is recognizable as a Klingon D-7 "wing" and as such sports heavy disruptors in the shoulders and waist positions, to the rear it shows powerful impulse drives and a aft photon torpedo tube, This is one of the most heavily armed and likely armored ships in the quadrant, and it is a wildcard, a true loose cannon, a rogue predator running loose

This ship is likely the result of battlefield scavenge from a previous war between the Klingons and the federation, or theft from old stockyards where ships were awaiting to be scrapped, in either case, she is a most wanted vessel with a list of charges against her and her crew.

I need to prime the ships as they came in a white 3D printed material, it is feeling a little rough, so no smoothness like the D-7 they are posing with These came from Shapeways.

D-7 and FASA style D-9, it is a long and wide cruiser, I have found 8-9 phaser points, and of course the forward torpedo and aft torpedo launchers.

Here is the D-7 with the Starfleet Museum inspired D-6, the Museum also lists the D-7, as both are TOS style ships.

I then gave them "phasers" using paperclips I glued into holes and clipped, these will get gold paint too so they stand out from the green paint. I then mounted them on bases for stability. The D-9 has weapons already molded in

The D-9, envisioned a as a long range vessel, and or command ship is designed for defense all the way around with disruptor mounts on the upper, and lower aft quarters, 2 more on the forward shoulders of the lower wing, and 2 more on the forward command section for a total of 8 high powered multiple angle mounts. the Torpedo arrangement is peculiar for a Klingon vessel, with the one multiple shot launcher in the forward command pod, and two smaller, but potent single shot torpedo tubes facing aft. finishing her offensive power is pared heavy disruptor cannons in the front tips of the warp nacelles, powered by the coils when not at warp in impulse speed combat. It does seem to suffer from weaker than expected impulse engines, making her maneuvers less than desired.

Her defenses are the ablative added armor under the standard Klingon deflector and force fields, and the hull integrity stabilizer field. There are plans for more robust impulse drives to be fitted to improver her ability to move faster out of warp speed, her warp speed are warp 7 for cruising, and warp 9 for emergencies.

Now this ship is more like TOS in design concepts, this is the other D-6 cruiser, it is made for War, but is only good for warfare. It is not meant for comfort for the crew for long scientific voyages. Just for war, the weapons are as follows: 2 belly mounted disruptor turrets with a 360 degree arc, the other disruptors of the main hull;l are mounted on the upper deck, one left and one right. On the "Hat", there are on each wing of the hat, 2 disruptors up and down on the right and left,. and then larger, single mounted ones under the "hat" fixed more forwards. The ship also has a large photon torpedo launcher mounted in the pod fixed forwards, and the last are the dual Heavy Disruptor Cannons in the warp nacelles with a wide arc of fire for a total of 4 disruptor bolts, a cross between disruptors and torpedoes.

Forwards, you can see the 4 upper surface disruptors and Photon torpedo launcher
[/img]

Head on,,,the larger disruptor turrets, and the torp launcher and in back the Heavy cannons on the engines.
[/img]

Side view, upper disruptors markings seen, and that many turrets allows a 5/6 disruptor broadside.
[/img]
[/img]

Right side.

Aft, the upper hull and belly disruptors are set to swivel to fire to the rear. Impulse engine is set to the rear like most Klingon cruisers, and the shuttle bay is set under that. Also gas vents along back edge of the wings.

Officers and crews assigned to this ship in peacetime tend become surlier than usual.

So, here we have the finished for now D-5 cruisers. These are updated with newer warp engines that were tweaked for faster speed. Capable of Warp 8 maximum speed, and normal warp 6 for cruising speed. each engine has a disruptor cannon in forward arcs, the forward torpedo tube still can switch from torpedoes to heavy disruptor cannon, a pair of swivel mounts are where the base pole is, and the upper neck has a pair of lateral defense disruptors, and a torpedo tube facing aft. The "Smooth" look is due to added large armor upgrades that are support for the deflector/force fields.

Yes, and I looked back, it seems the printer had a mishap of sorts, and the D5s are missing details, I may use Nash Star as they seem super detailed and polished will reduce the rough look.

TY! I try,

An Umbral Samaritan, who came with a 25mm base, it seemed insubstantial for keeping him stable, so he got a 40mm base instead! And yes, the confusion as to where the Umbral Samaritan and his outfit get indistinct is deliberate on my part.

[/img]

the base was given a linen white ring with a clear red added to alter it as Umbrals may lead,, but they are different how they do it.


Umbral Legate and his Batroid henchmen, he was able to fit his 25mm base.

The Batroids.

Legate in all around

Umbrals have strange powers.

One more pic I found.

I hate death claws I always used to sneak past them in New Vegas and just go straight to the strip.

I'll chime in with Dr.H, your basing looks great

TY, My basing is getting better, and I also decided to do work on a scratch made armored vehicle project I had stalled out on. Of course with my computer down for a week, I had a reason to advance the project and other things

The Su-88 anti-tank hunter mobile gun was a new idea for helping halt the advances of enemy tanks by the Union. It is small, and a crew of 4 is cramped inside, driver, loader, gunner and commander. The vehicle is envisioned as a ambush vehicle, awaiting the approach of the enemy, and knocking out the lead tank, forcing the columns to expose their flanks trying to get around said lead tank.

So, hull had been collecting dust, here we see the glacis plate attached.

Support structures inside.
[/img]
[/img]

The Main gun and mantlet arrangement, and how it will sit on the vehicle.
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

Engine and trench rails as well as closed off tracks
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

The fighting Cabin takes shape
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]
[/img]

As can also be seen, the side walls for the rest of the tread system was added.

Non scratch parts:
Track shoes from Zinge
Trench rails, and engine bits from One Man Noodles.
Cannon+Mantlet from Secret Weapon Miniatures.

So, recall above that I said my basing was about to get a wee bit better? I got this for sale at Miniature Market.

1st goody,,,,,PVA gflue for the basing!
[/img]

Then we have coarse material for some very rocky terrain bits
[/img]

Finer grain next,( I was running low)
[/img]

And some shaggy looking grass to show some lacking in lawn care, or very wild grasses 2nd pic was after "fluffing" the grass with a brush handle
[/img]
[/img]

and wilder "Crabgrass"
[/img]


I actually can do snow now!
[/img]

It came with a roll of free "Barbed wire" so now I need to make some wire stands to throw onto a battle table in front of the trenches

Please don't take this the wrong way.

I love the variety and wonderful spectrum of models you show us on this blog, but seeing a tank in production brought a tear to my eye, at last a return to the real world.

All looking great, looking forward to your basing efforts, but yeah really want to see that tank hunter develop.
