As I have been compiling basically a P&M in the thread for the B5 ACTA campaign I am running I thought it would make sense to post an actual P&M thread for people to giggle at.
Whilst this will largely consist of Babylon 5 models there will also be some WHFB, 40K and various historicals appearing at some point.

An Earth Alliance Nova dreadnought and an Omega destroyer.




These have since been tidied up a bit, the guns on the Nova have been placed more rationally and transfers have been added.

Next I painted up some Minbari fighters;

These have since been based.

Following this I got another EA Omega destroyer painted as well as a pair of EA Hyperions;


Next up I moved onto Narn ships, starting with a pair of G'Quan class heavy cruisers;



I followed them up with a dozen Narn Frazi heavy fighters;



Next, a trio of Narn frigates, a Dag'kar and a pair of Thetus.


Lastly a pair of Narn Var'Nic long range destroyers.



And that's where I stand at the moment.
Thanks for looking! Any C&C is appreciated.

The white stars are lovely. B5 really did a great job on their ship.design and you are capturing the feel of them.really well.with your paint schemes. Keep it up.

Nice work. I love the pattern on the Narn ships.

Thanks, wish I could take the credit but I cheated and used transfers!
Next up a batch of tiny little ships, all about a half inch long. For the fighters I tried to match the scheme as closely as possible to the bigger ones up thread they proved remarkably difficult to photo though as the camera only focused on either the stem or the background.
Bluestar proxies (actually FA scale Minbari cruisers).

Hey, cool. I didn't realise you ran your own log.

I'm not familiar at all with Babylon 5. But I've always liked space ships. So that's good enough for me.

Really like that warglobe. I find it to be quite menacing looking.

Probably because it gets so rarely updated!

The Warglobe is one of my favourite ships of all time because it is so different from the norm, most ships tend to look like adaptations of real world things (birds/planes/ships/subs) but the Warglobe is just so bizarre and alien. Really wish it was a better cast as I would get a few more of them.

And you should watch B5...

Yeah warglobe is quite alien looking. It's reminding me off something, but I can't put my finger on it.

I've actually just started re-watching Stargate. So B5 will have to wait 16 and a half seasons and 2 movies. But then I may have to watch Farscape as well. So tack on however many seasons that is....

Shadows;



Depsite appearances they have been drybrushed with three different shades and glazed with two more. They just appear to be black and shiny in the pics.

I've never watched B5 myself but I've always found the ships really cool! Like the oranges on the sunhawk, a nice contrast

Out of curiosity, what kind of scale do these ships sit at?

They don't really.

The miniatures are a mix of scales from two different lines (Fleet action and B5 Wars) but they made little attempt to maintain a coherency of scale between the miniatures within those ranges.

The Omega Destroyers in the first pic are about 11cm in length (translated from over 1700m in universe) whilst the Whitestar models are about 4.5cm (in universe 475m) the fighters come in about 2.5cm.

Truly, Droshalla has blessed your Sunhawk. How did you achieve the pattern on the abdomen?

Spray black, rebase white, ink red, basecoat red (GW Blood), irregular splotches of some GW orange whose name I cant remember, glaze the furthest aft portions on each splotch with Vallejo Yellow until bright but leaving a gradient.
