Many thanks chaps  :)

Lovely ships so far, I salute you for adding rigging! Is that cotton thread?

The paint jobs are very nice, I like that previously Spanish one's design and paintjob in particular.

The bases really help add to the quality, where are they from?

Yes, cotton sealed with a bit of thin superglue. The bases were lasered from 5mm acrylic. The acrylic rod was cut to length (about 50mm) and drilled with a hole in one end to allow the brass rod thatís in the bottom of the neff to slot in. These are all Brigade Spanish ships.

I'd be interested in seeing something like this available commercially?  :D

Would be great for my Aeronef and Full Thrust fleets  :)

Am I right in thinking that those bases are fully FfoL Starships Fleet rules compatible?

Potentially but the acrylic was done by hand as I don't have a table saw to do them en masse. Drop me a pm and we'll see what happens  :)

That's the idea yes but I'm sure they could be used for other rule sets.

Absolutely they could, it's a very common facing arrangement. Those bases are ideal.

Got the first of the French fleet done. I swapped out the main turret for one of the normal ones as I felt it fit better.

I must admit I wasn't so keen on the color scheme at first.

But when I see a group of them... well... they look great.  :-*
