Very nice job. I like the random container color. If you watch a modern sea going cargo vessel they do have a variety of colored containers stacked on deck. You have achieved that effect.

hey I like those!

Tom Reed Supporting Member of TMP12 Apr 2018 6:18 a.m. PST

Those are very nice. Who makes them?

Nice work.

very nice. I like the one made from a stretched NSL warship.

@Toaster, I think those are the supply ship and tanker from the NSL line, but I'm willing to be corrected :)

@Tom Reed, I'm confident in saying they are all current Ground Zero Games items :) I *definitely see a Peasmold Class there, anyway :D

Toaster12 Apr 2018 10:15 p.m. PST

@ Walrus, your almost certainly correct, I haven't checked up on the NSL range for a long time as I've to many other projects on the waiting list.

They're all GZG, from various factions, I believe.

I chose them from among the "Merchant, Civilian and Support Ships" section of their store:

GZG indeed. Most of the major factions also have dedicated fleet logistics and tanker ships now, hence the NSL styling. You'll see similar for ESU, NAC and FSE at least, I believe. I have a Peasmold awaiting it's final colours myself, waiting to carry out a sorely overlooked aspect of fleet operations (it's a waste processing ship). I always snigger at the name of the Pinder class transport, with it's two massive globes…

Your stuff is always awesome, Mateus. Nobody does spaceships better, IMO.

Mateus17 Apr 2018 4:46 a.m. PST

That's very kind of you, The Angry Piper. Spaceships were my first love in the hobby of miniatures.

Very nicely done.

I can never get the cargo containers to look good when I try and do coloured ones. How did you do yours? Are they dry-brushed over the base hull colour and then highlighted?

Mateus30 Apr 2018 7:16 a.m. PST

They were washed and drybrushed a couple times, over the base color, trynda.
