Introductionnot-Federation" and "not-Orion" Star Trek fleets. Well, today it's the turn of the Klingons. These are quite unusual amongst my fleets, as not all the ships come from the same manufacturer. I've used Studio Bergstrom for the largest and the smallest models, while the medium-sized ones come from Irregular Miniatures.

ConclusionThis is a relatively small fleet, for now. I painted the models at widely different times; it was very difficult to do the colour matching between the older Irregular vessels and the newer Studio Bergstrom ones. Having said that, the pictures seem to show much more variation in colour than is present on the actual models.
I'm completely missing any destroyer-sized ships from this collection. To fill this gap, I might even have to buy some of the official Star Fleet models, either from Mongoose or Amarillo Design Bureau!
So thats's where you got your "Admiral Kang" miniature from!
(I'd posted something asking about the mini back in your Klingon verses Federation thread last year).
Thanks again for the post Hugh. Nice colour scheme you've got there on your Klingons.
If you've got more Trek minis, post away! :)
Ah, sorry for not answering your question sooner!Delete
Yes, I have some more fleets and will post these when I get round to it. Mind you, I don't have a limitless supply!
Yet another fleet and more in the offing and now you've now got me to the point where I've got a set of Full Thrust rules too - Damn you, I'll be buying miniatures next.ReplyDelete
Well, the good news is that you don't need much in the way of terrain or miniatures to play space combat games!Delete
Nice post colgar. The color variation isn't too off putting, maybe just some fading on ships that have been in service longer. I'm still trying to figure out why your posts don't show up on my feedly blog reader. I use it to keep up with things and that's one reason why I'm generally behind on responding to your posts. One of many things to ponder.ReplyDelete
Actually, I think that much of the apparent colour variation is due to the flash on my camera. The closer models look paler than they are in real life.Delete
I've no idea why you're not seeing my posts in your app, but your comments are always welcome!
