These are the first 3 ships I have painted for Dropfleet Commander… UCM cruisers.

How did you get that green area so bright, is it lit or just very bright/metallic paint?

Very nice

The green areas on the burnthrough laser sides are Createx airbrush paint – Pearl Lime, one coat over the base coat. I also considered a turquiose color, which I used for the engine grills on the UCM frigates.

The base paint is a metallic black. Recipe is 3 drops Reaper Pure Black, 2 drops Reaper Polished Silver. Highlighting is 3 drops Pure Black, 3 drops Polished Silver, 1 drop Reaper Pure White.

Nice job on the carrier decks

Good work -- they came out really well

Thanks guys. I should have the 4 frigates done tomorrow and I can then get some pictures up.

Whew, all that detail was a lot to paint; I simply didn't want to spend the time to highlight/shade everthing there. They still turned out fine, I think.

Alright, finished the frigates, and so here are some frigate pictures along with group shots of the whole starter fleet…
