Firestorm Armada: Aquan and Directorate Large Class Ships

Hi all. 

Today I bring some pictures of the large class ships form the Return of the Overseers boxset I picked up last year. For the Aquans its the Oannes Class Heavy Carrier and for the Directorate its the Anarchist Class Battleship. 

First up the Oannes Class Heavy Carrier. Not an out and out battleship like the Directorate's Anarchist but no less capable in its own way. As the name suggests it is part carrier meaning it can launch little ships (can't remember what the proper name for them is). I'd assume that rather than being right at the front of the fighting its role is more supportive in nature. So on with some pictures.

Firestorm Armada: Directorate Medium Class Ships

Hi all,
Today I'm bring some pictures of the Dictatorate medium class ships for Firestorm Armada. Again these are ships I picked up in the Return of the Overseers boxset last year. 
First up are the Turmoil Class R&D Cruiser.There were 2 of these in the boxset. I thought these had a really interesting design to them. They remind me slightly of some sci-fi ship I've seen somewhere but can't put my finger on where (If anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy to hear them).So on with some pictures.

Firestorm Armada: Aquan Medium Class Ships

Hi all.

Today I bring pictures of the medium class ships for my Aquan fleet for firestorm armada. These are again those out of the return of the overseers boxset that I picked up last year. 

First up the Shiva Class Gunship. There were two of these in box. I think they are quite nice looking ships like the rest of the aquan ships in the box. If I remember correctly they came in four parts. There was very little in the way of flash or mould lines to remove and they went together with no real problems. So on with the pictures of them.

40k Abandoned Factory Display: Barrels

Hello all,
This is the next part of my Abandoned Factory Display, some gooed up barrels! The idea behind these is they will add some good LOS blocking terrain to what could be a very open area.

Myself and Blackmane would like to extend our condolences to the friends and family of Alan Bligh.
