"Star Wars... nothing but Star Wars..."
Trying to keep up the blog routine, thought I would post some recently completed models given to me for Christmas by my wife! These are some "fleet-scale" (1:10,000) resin Star Wars ship models from Odyssey Slipways. Left to right, these are the Rebel assault Frigate, Imperial Dreadnaught, and Carrack cruisers.
I painted the ships using a black undercoat and for the Imperial ships, a basecoat of Codex Grey highlighted with Fortress Grey, a Badab Black wash, and re-highlight of Fortress Grey followed by a light drybrush of Fortress mixed with Skull White. The Rebel ship was basecoated Graveyard Earth and highlighted Bleached Bone mixed with Graveyard, washed with Devlan Mud and re-highlighted. Engines were painted Ice Blue.
These are some generic metal cargo freighters I picked up from Brigade Models as a tag-along to a small order of 6mm stuff. They will be used as civilian or transport craft in our games. They were painted similar to the Imperial ships.
I really enjoy Odyssey's range of resin Star Wars ships. They are easy to assemble and don't require a lot of clean up, and of course, are a snap to paint with ample surface detail. I look forward to gaming with them in the near future!
