Imperial Menace

I couldn't just post the Rebels without letting the Empire respond, thus I have given the same treatment to my Imperial fleet. The fleet is actually a little outgunned by the Rebel fleet but does retain more starfighters within its ranks (duh!).

1xProcursator Class Star Destroyer
1xDragoon Class Star Destroyer
1xVictory Class Star Destroyer
1xAcclamator Class Star Destroyer
1xImmobilizer Class Heavy Cruiser
1xDreadnought Class Heavy Cruiser
1xTon Falk Class Heavy Cruiser
2xCarrack Cruisers
4xImperial II Class Frigates
3xNebulon B Class Frigates
3xLancer Class Frigates
3xTartan Class Corvettes
Starfighters (Each model is a flight)
24xTIE/Ln Fighters
12xTIE/In Interceptors
12xTIE/Sa Bombers
12xTIE/Ad Avengers
6xTIE/D Defenders
4xXG-1 Star Wings

The next stage for the fleet is the acquisition of an Imperial Class Star Destroyer model in scale, easier said than done. I think I will also need to get some more corvettes as well.

Rebellious Horde

At the request of a few persons I have taken a picture of my entire Rebel fleet and cataloged its contents (who am I kidding, of course I know every model I own!). Once on the table it takes up quite a bit of space and as I found out I am short 9 fighter stands. Litko should expect an order soon.

1xMC80 Mon Calamari Cruiser
1xVenator Class Star Destroyer
1xAcclamator Class Star Destroyer
1xProvidence Class Star Destroyer
3xRecusant Class Star Destroyers
2xMunificent Class Heavy Cruisers
1xAssault Cruiser
1xDreadnought Class Heavy Cruiser
1xNeutron Star Class Bulk Cruiser
3xNebulon B Class Frigates
2xMarauder Class Corvettes
3xArquitens Class Corvettes
3xDP20 Class Corvettes
Starfighters (Each model is a flight)
9xT-65 X-Wings

Looking at the fleet it occurs to me that it is a little top heavy, I will have to get more models in the cruiser and corvette range. If the mood strikes me I may setup my Imperials and take pictures tomorrow.

The Return

Good day wargamers of the blogosphere and welcome back to A Mere Matter of Painting. It has been quite some time since my last transmission and for that I apologize. Unfortunately service to the Queen does not always make the hobby an easy one. To start us off again I have just finished some reinforcements for my Rebel Alliance fleet.

Starting with an Acclamator class star destroyer, this veteran of the clone wars was a breeze to paint and adds some much needed assault shuttle capacity to my fleet.

Next up is a Providence class star destroyer. This old workhorse is actually an ex-CIS ship that was most likely salvaged by the Rebels. I am a big fan of using a mixed bag of ships for my Rebels as they would be desperate to use whatever they could get there hands on.

Lastly I present the Venetaor class star destroyer. This is intended to be the flagship of my ragtag Rebel fleet as she carries over 420 starfighters. My logic is that this ship would be the base for the long range starfighter strikes that the Rebels are a fan of. Plus I have liked this model since I first saw it grace the screen.

With these three additions my Rebels have now outstripped my Imperials in firepower, unacceptable! This only means I will need to get more. I have been keeping an eye on the Star Wars Armada Imperial class star destroyer as it is as close to in scale as I am likely to find. Now I just have to find the $65.
