I'm gradually working my way though Ship Pack One painting the fleets. Whilst there has been some criticism of the ship quality, apart from a few small bent parts which easily straighten up in warm water I'm happy with the pack - 108 miniatures for £25 is good value and they respond well to a bit of simple painting.



I wanted the Hegemony fleet to be a very dark grey to echo the grey suits on the play mat illustration. I went for a base of a sort of metallic gun-metal colour, made by mixing aluminium and black paint 50/50. A black ink wash, dry brush highlight and the basic colour work was done.



Thanks to Maruk for showing the way with the orange details. I thought of using a different colour but the eyepiece of the Hegemony suit is orange so I stuck with it.



For added detail I painted some Hegemony symbols on the star bases and dreadnoughts.




The cruisers and interceptors are much smaller models so there's no room for any icons - not with my level of painting skill anyway. I added some small spots of orange detail to tie in the these and imply a weapons feature.



There's not a lot you can do with the smaller models. I used a bit of black lining to emphasise the details and shapes.

I really love the faction symbols you've added to these and to the hydran fleet. The color on those starbase cubes is menacing. Very very cool.
