We have selected a few of our favourites to share with you all. Rob Martin sent us in a picture of his Sorylians resplendent in a bright blue and yellow colour scheme. The painting is very crisp and neat and really stands out on the table top. Lon Porter’s Directorate are an imposing sight as they glide across the table top in this striking red and white...

After a few colour tests I settled on the blue/grey hull plating with yellow detailing and bright blue engine glows. These colours work nicely together and stand out nicely on the...
