Good day all!  Hope everyone had a good October.  Thanks again to all who posted last month.  We had some great entries. :thumbsup:

This month it is back to the Clans with the trio of snakes: Cloud Cobra, Steel Viper, and Star Adder.  Rather interesting bunch with some colorful schemes.  So let's see those elementals, tanks, mechs, or whatever is flying their colors!

I've got one star I did, trying to copy Cloud Cobra's Zeta Galaxy scheme.  Came out a little too light on the gray I think, but I still like it.

Next month it will be the Federated Suns with a Christmas bonus.  As always, thank you to all who post.  Have a great month all! 8)

There are some Cloud Cobra Gamma Galaxy units i have.

And some "generic" Cloud Cobra units using their clan colors for camouflage. Maybe Delta galaxy?

Those protos look great! They have a very transformers vibe to the color scheme

Hmm... only a little bit of everything.

Just a few members of clan Cloud Cobra's Epsilon galaxy...

Even less members of clan Star Adder's Gamma galaxy...

The Deimos miniature is that custom mini predating the IWM sculpt, the Blood Asp is the tiny first sculpt and the Kraken RE is slightly modified (bigger top ATM 6, spaced arms).

And just a single ship for the Steel Vipers: the Aegis cruiser 'Steel Python'.

I like that ship! If we talk about naval assets i can field a naval star for the Star Adders. And their flagg ship.

No love for the snakes?

One of my long time projects is to paint a complete cluster for the Star Adders. The 286th Adder Sentinels.
Including 5 trinaries, a command nova, a Protomech support star, one trinary of Armor for support and the dropship flotilla to transport the whole unit. Sadly there is still a long way to go. Half the units are painted and only 2 trinaries are complete so far.

I only have a binary in Star Adder Alpha colours, but I'm quite pleased by them.
