The Terran Union (green) fleet was the second fleet I painted. I wasn't ready to try anything too crazy at this point, and I used more ink (in some places I shouldn't have). I still had some lessons to learn.

I went with green and yellow to mirror the portrait of the Terran Union representative in the rulebook, and to recall the illustration on the side of the old Galaxian arcade cabinet.

Terran Union Cruisers


Terran Union Dreadnoughts

Thanks especially to Maruk, lee electric, madchow, and Garyjames for posting their photos and for painting advice, without which I'd never have attempted to paint my own fleets.

Very nice work. I have finished all my alien fleets (a couple more to post here soon) and you have inspired me to start painting the base game fleets.

Thanks, guys. Without your awesome examples and patient advice, I never would have even attempted this. Can't wait to play a game with the painted fleets!

I did the base game fleets first because it's been so many years since the last time I painted a miniature, I wanted to relearn on simpler models. I've done them all except for yellow (which I botched, and need to redo), and am on to Ship Pack One at last. Orion's almost done, and I'm working on the Mechanema dreadnoughts tomorrow. Mechanema has been tough for me, as white is unforgiving. :blush:

Coming up next: Terran Alliance.

I found the white Mechanema the most difficult too. In fact I botched the star bases and stripped them clean and started again.

Thanks, guys!

Gary James, I too stripped half of my Mechanema starbases and started over. I've redone them, but am not sure I'm happy with them yet. More tinkering today.
