So this is attempt one billion at getting into WW2.
My only problem is the brown trousers, I seem to be missing medium brown. I have like a dozen diffrent browns, but non the fit the job, I got a darkish brown, that works for shade, and a light one for highlight but not a medium to use inbetween.

The ships are mostly from 3 sources, two of the sources are home made stuff from talented garage producers. the last source is ebay micro machines.
I's kinda fun hunting star trek ships on ebay, first you go to memory alpha or other star trek source, find the dimention of the class of ship you want, they give the figure in actual meters, so a bird og prey is 140 meters ect. you then devide it by 7000 and multiply by a 100 and you get the size of a 1:7000 scale version of the ship in cm. you then go online and try and find a ship model that fit this size as close as possible. The nebula and excelsior class ships are slighlty off, the excelsiour is to big, while the nebula is to small. but my vorcha are just right.
My klingon fleet is now 25 ships, 1 negh'var, 4 vor'cha and 20 birds of prey.

But these ships take much shorter time, many of them are so small it's limited how detailed you can get them, even the biggers one are limited based how they look on the show
This is the Dominions ships, 13 attack ships(still got 7 left) 3 cruisers and 1 attack cruiser.
Close up of the dominion ships
The dominion, are hard to paint, you never get really a good look, one episode they look purple, another they look more metal, so I did a mix of purple and metal, and metal purple.
Negh'Var Biggest of the big Klingon ships.
All the ships I got, I ran out of flight stands, so waiting for the next shippment for them.

I'm now on the last few episodes of DS9, and naturaly anybody doing star trek wargaming, DS9 is the holy grail, I still think the space battles in season 6-7 of DS9 is the best space ship battles of any series or movie ever made, better then B5, Stargate ect.
So now it's finnaly time to do star trek wargaming, it did take quite a while sorting out were to get what.
These are from the same guy, not really sure if I should say were I got them or not for legal reasons.
Most trekkies should see what these are, unless I did a horrible paint job.
The federation ships are the hardest to get a hold of.
The federation kinda likes to keep their troops alive, so they generaly have bigger ships and more defences. One on one the federation ships will win almost all the time aginst a dominion ship, but the dominion have the numbers on their side.
If i get a hold of them I'll add breen and romulans to later.

Well this has been a long time, last Napoleonics I've posted here was in September last year, and my last 15mm Napoleonics in MAY!!! last year, so it's almost a year since I've painted 15mm Napoleonics.
I've had these Blue moon figres laying around since then, done alot since then, and I almost didn't paint anyting the last 6 months of last year.
As you see these are 1805 period french, the figures are good, but I've noticed something, they do not photograph well, in real life, they look good, because they have extravant features that make them look right in your hands even on close inspection, but the high pixel camera just picks up every bump in the figures, and they look disformed and ugly. so I had to scale down the pictures, at the full 1600x1200, they were but ugly, which was a shock as they looked really good in my hands, espeacly the face.
I have decided to up the lightness of the blue slightly, they still look like french blue coats, but you get a bit more pop to the color.
