I painted 1,2 or 3 dots on the tops of the fleet ships. That works, although the Klingon ones are still a bit hard to see (because of the color and ship detailing). I just wondered if anyone has come up with another way to clearly mark their fleets.

That looks like entirely too much work.

Hey, good idea. I've just got as far as gluing my fleet ships to the bases--but I've been busy painting up my 3D Star Bases in basic faction colors!

Are the black bases intentionally speckled white to mimic a star field, or am I giving you entirely too much credit?

Yes, I speckled the bases.



I'm planning on uploading better pictures, and hopefully a painting guide but haven't got around to it yet.

Painted the fleet numerals: Federation: navy blue, Klingons: black, Romulans: white. Painted the top for the third Klingon star base which was missing, and was just mailed to me after I mentioned it here.

Thanks. The paint job is indeed impressive, although I agree with Novacat. I did start off by painting the base numerals, but they were still a pain to distinguish when looking down at the lay-out; that's why I went with the spots on top of the ships.

Really? What colours did you use?

Just black, which was all I had available. It didn't show up well against the green and red. In any case, I've found in easier to have dorsal markings for quick identification.

Yess, a painting guide.
My attempts at speckling are awful.
