You should post these on GT if you didn't already. Will cheer Marquis up to see B5 stuff when he gets back.
That's all we need... another fan head on GT :roll:

Those are nice colour schemes, and I'm impressed at how little time it took to paint them... what ever you've been taking in order to paint that fast I'll have some as well please :D

Hope we get more ACTA players on GT, so far there are only 4 of us.

Nice paintwork - but what's going on with that Vorchan front and centre? Is it me, or are the vertical fins wonky? Maybe it's the prototype variant with gravitic thrust vectoring... :D

Ain't got a problem with it...

It's just I don't quite understand why people would make that mistake, even if they've never seen the ship before.

All Centauri ships have their fins pointing forwards, including the Vorchans and Centurions that are also pictured here.

Not that it matters, fairly minor detail really. Excelent paint job by the way...

You poor chap… as many criticism at the ships.
But criticism accelerates one to better results.
:wink:

Here comes my: :twisted:
Where are the antennas at the nose cones of the Primus???
Tap: Try times pulled plastic antennas instead of the normal provided.
I know the problem, the parts fit not point so quite. :wink:

Well the original purpose of the Secundus (game wise not fluff wise) was to explain why the Primus which blockaded the B5 in the series didn't fire its Battle Lasers. And that one had forward facing fins...

But it really isn't all that important, you're not the first person I''ve seen to do it. If that's the way you want your ships do it that way, don't listen to nit-picking reprobates (who have never actually got around to building any of their ships at all) like me... :D

Keep up the good work.

Ah that's the Real Life Reason, which is different to the Game System Reason or the Fluff Reason...
