Welcome back again everyone!  A real big round of applause for all the posters last month.  Very nice turnout with some excellent work.  8) :thumbsup:

This month we get the triple threat of the Star League, ComStar, and everyone's favorite bunch zealots, the Word of Blake.  The three are kind of all related, so seemed like a good grouping.  Aerospace, tanks, Mechs, whatever is kicking around, please do share.

Next month will be Clans Ghost Bear and Smoke Jaguar.  The remainder of the next six months:
August: Free Worlds League
September: Draconis Combine
October: Desert/Urban Camo & Halloween
November: Clans Cloud Cobra, Steel Viper, and Star Adder
December:  Federated Suns & Christmas

If there is something else folks would like to see, please send in your suggestions.  :thumbsup:

Nada from me this month, so the CamoSpecs examples:
Ostroc by Phlop, a modified Catapult by Wackrabbit, and an Archangel by Ogre.


All right bring on the minis! 8)

Have a great June everyone!

Some more...

Star League ... I don't have many Star League minis. Only an Exterminator and your typical Mackie.
Well, they are green...

And now to something different ... in white.
No real difference between Comstar and WoB (as I still forget about decals...)

Knowing white would be a pita, I decided to paint a Comstar Level II in a somewhat varying winter camo.

Star League: remnants of the 138th Mechanised Infantry "Chicago" Division, last seen on Valentina in 2824.



Comstar: Level III-nu, 504th "Gateway" Division:



Word of Blake: an ad-hoc Level III of WoB Militia, late Jihad era, during the initial stages of Operation Scour:

Those are all very cool, WT, but "The Dying of the Light" has to be one of the best unit names I've ever heard!
"Well, I do, Marcus, and rule number one of the MAC has always been that the man with the plan leads. If we get shot up, I'm the first one to get my ticket punched. There are no flags in the MAC."
"And there never will be," Barton said, nodding his head in agreement.

"You guys are facing a freaking Shadow Division! These guys have strict policies against playing fair!"

"I don’t care. Kill them. I planned the defense so I know it will work. If they claim otherwise, they’re cowards. Any step back is a betrayal of me, and saying they don’t have enough men is just an excuse for incompetence and disloyalty. Tell the Krypteia to do it if you’re too soft but get it done." -Emperor Stefan Ukris Amaris I

Where's the best place to get decals for units? At the moment, I'm trying to put together my Tukkayid diorama, so need Comstar and Wolf Clan decals.

What is the ship on the far left? I recognize the rest, but am blanking on that one...
