More Space goodness

I had a happy surprise upon arriving home from work today: 2 Parcels were waiting for me. One of them was from Pahoota, owner of the Solipsist Wargaming blog. He was kind enough to send me 3 of his home made ships, which are pretty cool designs.

Check out the amount of detail Pahoota manages to put on those little goodies.

On the pic above, we have them next to a Micromachine's Warbird and ruler to give a sense of scale. They are about 2" long.

The other surprise waiting for me at home was my long awaited Ori ships from Armoury Hobbies.

They are huge, a little over 5", just as this massive vessels should be. Chris ships them primed already (don't really know why), and as you can see the paint is chipping off a bit. 

There is also some dust to remove, but nothing a quick bath won't do!

They have sufficient detail, and I'm overall quite pleased with them.

Here is a pic of one of these behemoths alongside the Warbird, for comparison:

Unfortunately, I'll be away the next 2 weeks, so I don't think I'll be able to work much on all those ships before I return. Still, it's good to know they will be here waiting for me on my paint desk!

  1. Those homecasts look really good! He must be proud of them.

  2. I like the home cast ships a lot as well!
