Da Green Skwadrun

o/

I didn't have a whole lotta time to paint this past Sunday. Usually I go to my grandparent's house for the afternoon & dinner. However as it was Mother's day, I was the one doing the cooking rather than Ma. So, knowing there would be little time for painting, I brought along some BFG ships.

Little more than an exercise in dry brushing, and picking out a few details here and there, BFG escorts fit my limited time slot just right. I have three skwadruns, each of a different type and this is the first painted one. These are onslaught attack ships, and with D6 shots @ 30cm they are one of the few skwadruns in the fleet that doesn't try/need to get into point blank range ASAP.

Also on the gaming front, Saturday my Exodites teamed up with some alpha strike Mechdar allies and we took on a Death Star SW army. It was a good game that seemed to be in the our favor, yet the Eldar victory wasn't decided till the bottom of turn 7!

The best games are always those that come down to the wire. ;-)

I have been picking up some Ork BFG lately. I like they way you painted yours, very nice. Keep us posted and I look forward to seeing them done.

Thanks!

We only play BFG about once a month or so, so they're kinda low on the 'to do' list. That said they are quite simple and thus a bit more enjoyable to paint.
