Yep, I've been painting Dropfleet Commander ships again. By this stage there's very little else for me to say about them, but I feel honour bound to list all of my painting efforts, so here we are. Let's all just stay strong, we can get through this.
Right, here we go. Deep breath.
First up, a couple of Opal frigates. These improve on one of the "interesting" features of the Shaltari, their ability to raise shields for extra protection, at the cost of being visible from much further away.
|Ships with entirely fair special rules|
When these ships are within 6" of a Shaltari vessel that has its shields up, they confer a re-roll. As you can imagine, this is incredibly well received by my opponent.
Also! I've painted some of these...
|Ships with entirely fair close action weaponry|
There now, that wasn't so bad, was it? Final thing to do is to look at the scores...
Sadly, there's a problem here. The Joy of Six show in Sheffield took place recently, and, well, I bought some stuff.
Specifically, a couple of 6mm buildings (no big deal) and a couple of packs of 6mm MDF wall. Sadly, there are 12 sections to a pack, so that's another 24 models to add to the count. Ooops.
With all that in mind, here we go...
