Pirate Fleet

The last major faction in the Space Dreadnought 3000 Universes. Unlike the other factions, their ships are organic. Additionally, they do not  have the full complement of ship classes like the other factions.

These ships were given a dark purple metallic basecoat followed by light purple highlights. The large orbs of the ships were painted black followed by several layers of gold for a smoooth, even finish. the engines were painted boltgun metal followed by a silver drybrush. White was used for engine glow.

Fighters were painted in the same fashion as the capital ships. I used the SD3000 line to experiment a little with metallic paints. Overall, I am happy with the results. The reflection from the metallic paints does tend to brighten the ships somewhat, however, they still kept very good details. The ships themselves were well cast and I received great service from Kallistra for these ships.
