I like the shape and design of your ship! It is looking really good. The paint scheme work you have started sounds like a good choice to start, can't wait to see what you come up with for the finish.  :)
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

Yeah, I hate those days where I just stare at the painting table trying to figure out what to do next.

Starship looks good though!

Great new stuff! I really love the hover car and it's crew. That spaceship looks promising as well!

Thanks, friends!

I tried to get some painting done tonight, but I felt the spaceship calling. Since it's almost entirely built out of plasticard and I'm using plastic glue, one could say I spent the evening working with spaceship welding.

I think it will go by "The Peregrine" (or "The [adjective] Peregrine"), since my last name means 'falcon'.
It will most likely be painted grey, with some faded white (or red) markings and an orange (perhaps?) cockpit.

I even put some detailing on the ship's underside, I am most happy with the laser cannons.
Will add a neodymium magnet later, so that it one day may fly.

It's not the largest craft, but it's roughly the size  of an Ion Age Skylark, which can carry a four man squad with heavy weapons.

The size of the back compartment is roughly 6 m˛, so it would be able to carry more than four passengers. I know since I, at my 24th birthday, managed to get 24 adult human beings to fit in my (roughly) 2 m˛ kitchen.

I'm almost done.

A panel and an emergency handle left to paint, but I couldn't finish it tonight. Still I wanted to show off my tiny, tiny buttons on the rear access door: 0,75 x 0,75 mm and painted in four colours (base, two highlights and white dot reflection) :

Thanks mates!

I finished the Peregrine earlier today, just got to write a story for her, then I will publish it here.

In the meantime, you can help me to think about which mini to use as a bounty hunter.
The top one (Shia Khan female officer) looks like she means business, have a badass cape and a great pose.
The nether one (Female adventurer) was my first choice, a new bounty hunter, not entirely without experience, but still new. She has more potential to grow and develop as a character, in my eyes. Also makes a better pair with the Malig tank ace, that I think will be pilot/mechanic/armed backup.

My issues with the top one: perfect villain, I've got a squad of Shia Khan troopers in matching outfits, looks a bit too experienced, and has pointy ears.
My  issues with the nether one: a bit too relaxed pose, sculpt doesn't scream 'bounty hunter' (but neither does any of my other minis), I can't decide colour scheme.

How do you reason?

Wow! Tough choice, might depend on what paint scheme you plan to use.

No. 1:  Looks very much in charge D6, 1, 3, 5. (could make for a really good villain)

No. 2: looks relax and confident  D6, 2, 4, 6. (looks like she could gather a good crew)

Yup, I like 1 too and those ears can easily be de-pointed.
I don\'t know whether to be a good example or a horrible warning.

I use #1 as my rival scavenger team's boss-lady. Honest to gosh, I didn't even know she had pointed ears. I never saw that when I was painting her. Not sure if the casting is clumsy on mine, or if my eyes are just bad lol.
