Avenger, other EA and ISA photos

Postby steelvow » Wed Jul 18, 2007 11:15 am

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to share some of my recent work with you on my EA and ISA fleet.

Image

Here we begin with some (very simply) painted ISA White Star and White Star Carrier. I asked for some tips on painting them a couple of month ago, here's the result. I find it just "ok" but it was simple to paint, so i'm pretty happy with them.

Image

Image

Then, here are a couple of photos from my (growing everyday) EA fleets. I calculated last week i can now do a 5 points armaggedon fleet :-)

Image

Image

And for dessert, my take on the Avenger. I think everyone'll agree that the original mini is bland and i tried some modification with some BFG spare parts i had left. I'm curious to see how it turns out painted. I'm still hesitating for the colour scheme... Grey and blue like older EA ships or black with red openings like the Poseidon above ?

Hope you'll like these, and if you have any advice, please let me know !
A+

I like the Hyperion :-)

I would say on the avenger, give it the black and red look, it's a bit more menacing, especially with those big ass turrents on it :P

Very nice. I like the bridge on the avenger, it does round out the model nicely.

adding the bridge reminds me of the Saratoga from S:AAB, I know the bridge was at the back on that ship, but it's the same kind of shape overall.

that's the one i'm more inclined to do, especially as most "flat" avengers i've seen are Light grey and blue and it would accentuate the special side of the ship.

But as of armaggedon, i must admit that i prefer the Early years version of the Avenger Stats-wise, so i'm a bit inclined to paint it "Early Years style"...

ha, cruel hesitations !

I love the Poseidon. The bridge on the Avenger gives it a real aircraft carrier look.

What colours did you use on your EA?

Ooh! Love the Avenger! Was going to try that but got outbid for spare BFG parts at the last auction. Very much looking forward to how you paint it.

Base colour of chaos black, then several brushes of shadow grey, then codex grey and some lining of space wolf grey.

Simple enough, even if i am not yet totally accustomed to lining according to a light source, so, sometimes, my linings are incorrects...

Ooh, that does give the Avenger a nice look. If I ever try EA I'm glad I have spare Battlefleet Gothic parts. :lol:

Well you turned the avenger from a piece of c*** into something nice :)

Can't wait to see it painted.
