I recently completed the core of a Lyran fleet for Star Fleet Battles. This is a mix of newer castings combined with a few models that painted 34 years ago. I experimented with one model, giving it a much more realistic, weathered treatment, and though it looked much more realistic, it didn't go well with my old models from the 1980s. And since this project is a bit of a nostalgia trip for me, I decided to just give the models the more simple paint jobs, matching my 1980s models. Here is the fleet at the moment:
I still need to add decals which I failed to order in time for my painting frenzy. Once I remembered to order them, Jupiter IV shipped them quickly and in good order, and I hope to apply them while adding a few conversions to my Lyrans in the near future.
