It's been a while since my last post. I did manage to paint and photograph several fleets during my absence, however, real life and other interests took over last year so I wasn't as motivated to post. Recently, I got the itch to paint and photograph again and decided to update with a new entry.
Here is the Mauridian fleet from Ravenstar Studios Cold Navy line. I decided to go with a green dazzle pattern that was based on the original drawings of the Marudian fleet. A close up of one of their battleships his here.
The ships themselves are well cast and easy to assemble. The ships look sleek and aggressive and were fun to paint. The main difficulty was painting the white stripe of the dazzle pattern (my eyes and hands are not as sharp and steady as they once were).
According to the fluff, the Mauridians emphasize small ships over large, and that is reflected in the sheer variety of frigates and destroyers that this faction has. The numbers and dazzle pattern makes for an impressive looking fleet. Additional pictures can be found in the gallery section. Again, any comments or criticism is appreciated.

The SFB pained T'Korex has been upgraded to a heavy command cruiser variant. You can see the addition of upper engine pods. the underside has a bridge which is not visible on this view. Here is a picture of the underside:
The bridge is more visible on this view. All the other Romulans have, except for the V'Tir light cruiser have extra components to allow upgrading. Additional pictures can be seen in the Romulan Gallery.

Been a while since I had time to post. Had the Romulans on my workbench for a while. Finally found time to post them. These are some early casts of the ships. They were based on designs from the PC game Starfleet Command (at least the larger ones were). From left to right, they are (SFC designations), they are the the T'Korex (Firehawk), Thersus (Skyhawk), Vadak (Seahawk), and V'Tir (Sparrowhawk). A Hallmark D'derix warbird and a Talon/Theta escort are in the shot for size comparison. The grid consists of 1 inch squares.
With the exception of the Sparrowhawk, extra parts are included with the ships to make variants. I'm currently working on them and should have additional photos up soon. Ships are available in the "For Sale" section

Chris over at Ravenstar Studios took a liking to these ships and managed to expand them into a fleet. I managed to grab a bunch of them during a sale and they are wonderfully detailed ships to paint. Here is the Velbor battleship and the Unicorn battlecruiser.
As for the lighter ships, here are the Mallard and Delta destroyers:
and the escorts (designation XL-15A):
These ships make for a very nice fleet:
If you are interested in these ships, they are available at Ravenstar Studio under the Retro line.
