This would have to be the fastest fleet painted.
Not much assembly needed for the Aquans. The Frigates were single cast metal pieces. The Cruisers were two flat resin pieces that glued easily together, the same process for the Battleship.
Painting was easy. Mithril Silver for the undercoat. Asur Blue Wash. Drybrush Mithril Silver over the whole. Pick out the details with Blood Red. Nice and simple, the effect looks brilliant. Seeing that the race a fluid breathers the blue sheen effect blends nicely.
So, two fleets down, just the Terrans to go now.
Not sure how I want to do these. As they are a Commonwealth, I just have to work with red, white and blue. Not sure if I can pull off a union jack style paint concept. Time will tell.
