Well, three years has pasted and I've dug them out again to have a read. I like these rules quite a bit as I have a huge interest in giant space fleet battles that goes back to my childhood. These models are from Zandris IV miniatures. I first looked at these years ago but last week I made the jump to light speed and bought a few.
The larger one is a resin model and is some sort of attack carrier, the other two are a Assualt crusier and a Beam cruiser.
Z4 do a bigger resin piece which is a Dreadnought and this is on my wish list. Being a Dreadnought though, it is super tough in the Full Thrust rules and will take a lot of damage before it goes down. I think most FT fleets are made up of around 8-12 models so you have to be quite choosy when selecting models to buy, I still like the idea having a fleet of smaller frigates and destroyers based around a couple of larger cruisers and battleships. So maybe a massive Dreadnought would be too much...Still the painter in me will probably overrule that and buy it anyway.
Colour wise, these ships are painted with Foundry's Confederate grey with a darker grey for the armour. I weathered the ships by painting on tiny panels and chipped them with a sponge. Very enjoyable to paint and very quick too. Painting a fleet of these small ships will only take a few nights work, great stuff!
