Cardassian and Dominion fleets

Bruce and I have been fooling around with adapting Axis and Allies: War at Sea to Star Trek using some 1/7000 (or 1/10000--very tiny anyhow) ships from Shapeways.

I had Federation and Klingon fleets. Bruce picked upside Gorn and Kzintzi while I added some Cardassian and Dominion ships over the holidays.

Painting and photographing something this small is tricky (the washers I'm using as bases are one inch across). I painted the Cardassians a golden yellow, detailed and washed.

The Dominion I painted grey, detailed and washed mauve. The paint job looks okay at three feet, which is mostly what I was going for.

The nacelles on the Dominion ships turns out okay.

In a second order I put in with Bruce I also picked up some BSG ships and a few space stations so I will be painting those next.

I'm hopeful to get a game going with the revised rules in the next few weeks.

National Cheese Emporium is the seller, in the micro fleets section of his store.
