My Narn Fleet

Finished one more fleet this weekend: The Narn!

The Fleet

G'Quan Heavy Cruisers

Another G'Quan in close up

G'Karith Patrol Cruiser and a couple Sho' Kos Police Cutter

Var' Nic Long Range Destroyer

Bin' Tak Dreadnought

T'Lot Assault Cruiser

Engines detail

The spotted patterns were all hand made, no decals, so I'm pretty satisfied with the result. My next order from AoG will be an Earth Alliance fleet - the last fleet missing in my B5 collection. Upon doing so, I'll also order the Minbari and Narn fighters.

  1. Super fantastic job! I love the Narn paint scheme, but painting it frightens me. I salute your skills, sir! (We're close to finishing Season 3 on DVD.)

    BTW what's been your experience ordering from AoG?

  8. A tip for you, Bluebirds:

    When outlining the patterns, make sure you have a picture of an actual narn ship next to you, so you can have a reference to go drawing the patterns more accurately.

    I did it and was really helpful.

  9. Oh, and I forgot to mention the last step of painting: Vallejo Brown Wash all over the models, including the metal parts.

    It will add depth to the red areas and an aged look to the metal areas. Pretty cool.
