The KoDan Armada

Watch out, Space Nerds and Starfighters, the human fleet is leaving dry docks and headed for a sandy stretch of beach near you!  Okay, they still need posts and fighters, but this seems like a good time for a group shot.

The total cost of this fleet was probably under $20 if you don't count the materials on hand from other projects.  Five bucks for a sheet of foam core, five bucks for the bright blue spray paint, and ten bucks for glue and the various doodads.  Seems odd to me that you can get a giant fleet so much cheaper than one for the tabletop.

As you can see, I've taken to calling this the KoDan armada, more to see if any of the kids pickup on the scifi reference than because these ships are faithful to The Last Starfighter aesthetic.  May have to have a door prize for the first one to spot that reference.

At any rate, next time well take a look at my strategy for a matching opponent, only a lot more alien...

  1. An entire fleet for less than you'd pay for a single Citadel vehicle model - fantastic! And the models look great assembled together.

    I can't help thinking that you'll need much larger storage boxes for gaming at this scale though. (-;
