War Cruisers - Painted

Postby scoutdad » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:51 pm

I finally finsihed my first squadrons of War Cruisers.
I now have 3 fully painted D5s and three fully painted D5Ws. I was so happy to see them finished, I just snapped a few quick photos right there on the workbench, so the quliaty isn't all that it could be. I'll post more pictures later... hopefully of better quality.

Since several people who haven't grown up on Starline minis have expressed concerns about the possible difficulties involved in differentiating the individual classes mid-game, I attempoted to resolve the dilemna while painting.
Although they are not pictured here, My D7s have lighter grey panels than the base color nad the C8s will have darker grey panels.
The D5/D5Ws OTOH, being War Cruisers and a late-war development; I used to attept to tie together the Klingon paint schemes.

The hulls are still the TOS grey, but the wing panels are now green. This serves well I think as a missing link helping to tie together the TOS-era grey Kingons and the TNG-era green Klingons.

Well... it would have looked better if I'd actually attached a photo or two before clicking "submit"!
