Battlefleet Gothic: Escort Squadron

Some more progress. I’ve painted up three Cobras, all in a green and of-white colour scheme. These guys are pretty easy to paint, just some drybrushing and detailing afterwards. Of course, the more detail you want, the longer it takes. I might go back and add some more windows, some silver highlighting on the guns, white highligting on the prows and/or squadron markings on the prows or side armours but I’ve still got more then enough on my plate for now.

So, Escorts Steadfast, Resolute and Stubborn, for your viewing pleasure.

I really liked the fact that, although it is clearly based on a military ship, it has been extensively converted, rebuilt and redesigned to function as a Rogue Trader’s flag ship.

A (not as) quick (a) post: My first ships that so far have been updated.

It looked pretty good and easy to do and some simple drybrushing later, I had the workings of a decent starter fleet. Although I did give the game a try and liked it, I was focusing more on warhammer fantasy and the game started to gather dust. Now, years later with my new interest in Rogue Trader, my love for spaceship combat has been rekindled as well.
