Qapla’!

My Klingon fleet for Star Trek Attack Wing gains some new ships. Of course I had to repaint them.

The first is the Negh’var class. It got a color similar to the Bird of Prey, with plenty of glowing nacelles and running lights. It looks suitably intimidating now that it doesn’t look quite so much as a toy.

The second is a K’t’inga class. I got this one at the Star Trek OP event for the past week. It’s much more detailed than the generic K’t’inga class model that’s been released. More details on the nacelles, the body, and even a sculpted torpedo tube under the nose make this a much better-looking ship. This one got the same grey base color as the other K’t’ingas I’ve painted, with red markings instead of the others’ respective dark grey and green. Now that I have 3 of this class of ship I might go for a unified design fleet for some battles.

Edit: In response to a request, I’ve added a pic of the original prepaints of the Negh’var and K’t’inga ships from Wizkids. Quite a difference, yes?

Bird of Prey

The Klingon fleet for Star Trek Attack Wing grows with the arrival of a K’vort Class ship, the famed Bird-of-Prey from ST:NG. This is my favorite of the Klingon ships, and I like the way the green came out for the repaint.

More to come as I collect the rest of the ships, or maybe expand into other factions.

Klingon Attack!

With Star Trek Attack Wing catching on big in my area, I decided to get involved. I opted for a Klingon fleet, since I wanted a no-nonsense, brutal play style, but still allow for the proper cold cunning Klingons are known for.

The models of course come prepainted… which is why I repainted them. The V’orcha in particular has a garish lime-green/aqua color scheme, while the K’t’inga looked like green rock candy. So on with the paint. The Internet was invaluable for reference pics, descriptions, even schematics.

The K’t’inga Class ship was painted in a light grey, washed with black and then highlighted with light grey, picking out the plating detail. I added window details all over, as well as painting in some extra details where they weren’t sculpted on the model. I had to paint in the distinctive photon torpedo tube under the nose. Some of the deflector plates were picked out in a dull green for contrast.

The V’orcha Class ship was a better sculpt overall, but still needed some work. Lots of small details added in with painted, and plenty of windows and running lights. It has a deep green seen in the movies and series associated with Klingons. I picked out the nacelles with red, painting in suggestions of detail where the sculpt was lacking.

More to come as reinforcements arrive.
