Well, it turns out that the Mongols weren't my final entry, but this one really, really, really is.
I was looking at what I had that I could be able to finish before the deadline and realised that some more spaceships might just be my best bet. So here they are, 12 lovely ships from GZG to upgrade my NAC "intro fleet" to "mega fleet" size. The "intro fleet" was painted up before the challenge and was my win from Seb's prize draw last summer.
This flotilla consists of a super dreadnought, a battle dreadnought, a battleship, a heavy cruiser, 2 escort cruisers, 3 corvettes and 3 scout ships. The 4 larger ships and the corvettes have an extra bit of detailing - some yellow and black striped hazard panels on the undersides and aft. I've included a pic of the underside of the BDN to show these.
As this is my final final entry, it's time for some parting words.
To my fellow Challengers of the Wild Bunch: Thank you all for the great competition, the words of praise to each other, the banter and the sheer lunacy of some entries. The standards from everyone have been fantastic this year and I sit here in awe of the quality and quantity of your outputs over the past 3 months.
To the various prize donors and sponsors: Thank you for your generosity. I'm sure that everyone would have competed anyway, but your prizes add a little something to the proceedings.
To Curt: A massive thanks for keeping up with the Heraclean labour that running this Challenge surely involves, especially with the addition of the fortnightly bonus rounds. On top of that, you have treated us to some absolutely stunnign entries throughout. How on Earth did you find the time? By the way, my mate King Augeas mentioned that his stables could do with a good cleaning....
To Sarah: My sincere sympathies for the last few months. Just make sure Curt treats you to his full attention, roses, chocs and lots of TLC to make up for his absence looking after us.
In regards to your entry... I really so like these ships Tamsin. They have such a wonderful old school look about them. In fact, I think I may actually like them a smidge better than the last fleet you did. That may be because they are using lighters tones or perhaps the lighting, hmm, whatever it is they look fantastic.
This fleet will give Tamsin 90 points. A lovely bit of work that!
