The Terran Conglomerate (white) was my fifth painted fleet. Though I'd botched the Terran Republic (yellow), I felt I needed to succeed at painting a light-colored ship.
In the Eclipse rulebook, the Terran Conglomerate is a wealthy faction focused on finance. This made me think of my neighbor's white Mercedes (always clean). It takes extra cash to upkeep a white vehicle and keep it looking shiny and new. I tried to give the Terran Conglomerate fleet a "wealthy," untarnished look.
I messed it up a few times, and found white to be a very unforgiving color. I eventually decided to line every ship in blue ink. In the photos, I think this can look a bit messy, but in real life (and much smaller) they look kind of cool.
Most of the fleet photos I'm posting are taken with a macro lens on a digital SLR, with a little bit of basic level enhancement to compensate for lighting and underexposure. I'm tagging the mobile phone shots as well so you can see what they look like. I've also linked a large, much more edited photo at the end of this so you can see a more idealistic version of the scene of the Terran Conglomerate fleet flying through space.
