The Dindrenzi are coming...

Today, I finished painting my Dindrenzi starter set. Here is how they look:

Next: The Minbari!! Already started working on them. 

After that, I'll add some reinforcements to my Dindrenzi. I'm thinking 2 more cruisers, 2 heavy cruisers, a gunship, a carrier, some scorts, a couple destroyers, maybe a dreadnought, or another battleship...

My Centauri Fleet

So I finally finished my Centauri.

They have been on the works for a long time. As I mentioned on a previous post, the problem was that I made a wash that looked terrible, and I had no idea what to do to save the paint job.

The reason the wash looked that bad is probably because I didn't use proper wash to do that. I simply diluted some acrylic paint on water, with a drop of dish detergent to help thin it down. The recesses were fine, but the high surfaces ended up with some stains here and there.

Well, turned out the solution was simple: A cotton swab lightly dump with thinner. I rubbed it gently over the stains, and "voila"! They were gone. If you ever need to use this technique, remember: press gently. You don't want to remove your painting, just the wash stains over it.

Here are some more pics of the finished armada:

 And here is how they look on my new shelves:

I'm also finishing my first Dindrenzi ships (the starter set) and am working on my newly acquired Minbari Fleet. The first ones will be showing up tomorrow, probably!

New shelves, Few shelves...

Since my collection of miniatures is expanding at alarming rates, I realized I needed more space to display it, and so I had some shelves installed on the attic.

Unfortunattly, no more than 70% of what I currently own fit there. The rest remain kind of 'hidden' on my wardrobe.
Here are some pics of everything I displayed there:

Star Trek fleets

Black Templars army

 Assault terminators

Terminator Squad

Chaplain, Helbrecht and the Champion

BFG Chaos Fleet and planets

BFG Imperial Fleet

My Minbari fleet has arrived, and I'll start working on it as soon as possible, but currently work is keeping me away from town for most of the time, unfortunately.
