The fleet is now assembled and undercoated. The models are mostly resin, with separate metal turrets. I'm not generally a fan of resin but in this case it works well. The ships are all fairly solid shapes, the detail is amazingly crisp, and Spartan Games were smart enough to make the thinner bits (the turrets with their long barrels) out of metal.
I sat down this afternoon and painted a prototype each of a frigate and a cruiser. I'm now itching to paint the battleship, but I'm forcing myself to leave this for last, or at least until I've done a couple more ships - a centerpiece model like this deserves the best paintjob, which means getting some practise in first.
Next purchase is likely to be another set of cruisers, possibly some destroyers, and the actual rules for the game!
