Firestorm Armada Comes to Sign of the Aquila

Hi all.

It's been a while since I managed to get anything posted but today I'm back and I'm bringing some new stuff to show. Towards the end of last year I decided I wanted to get into Spartan Games' Firestorm Armada. As some people may already know I already have some of their Dystopian Wars stuff in the form of Covenant of Antartica and Kingdom of Britannia, so I had a good idea of what the game would play like (the game mechanics and the way stuff works are indeed very alike in case anyone wondered). After some difficulty I managed to pick up the Return of the Overseers boxset that contained Aquan and Directorate fleets. I'm lucky in that my girlfriend said she was willing to give it a try (no games played at time of writing) and liked the Directorate ships and I liked the Aquans.

So for the last few months I have been painting up the contents of the box as the only condition my girlfriend placed on it was that she wouldn't play with unpainted models. I can't really argue with that as I prefer playing with painted stuff as well. I had thought of doing WIP posts as I went along but decided just to show stuff in a few posts once it was all done (so expect a couple more after this one). 

First up we'll start with the smallest ships in the two fleets. The Chimera Class Frigates for the Aquans and the Liquidator Class Frigates for the Directorate. Let's get on with some pictures.
