So, I finally committed, and will be making the trek to Lansing Michigan for all three Firestorm Armada events at the Michigan GT. What this really means for me is I need to devote a LOT of time to painting over the next 8 weeks, as I have very little of my fleet painted. I also need to resign myself to not getting it fully "completed", with engine glow and small detailing. I just need to get everything "tabletop ready". And by everything, I mean the following Dindrenzi and RSN models:
3x Cruisers/Heavy Cruisers (magnetized)
1x Praetorian Battleship
3x Retarius Escorts
1x Dreadnought w/ 3x Escorts
I'm not sure I can build a 1200 point list I'm happy with using only these models. Fortunately, I did just obtain the Dindrenzi Planetfall fleet, but I have zero experience playing them, and will have a hard enough time painting what I have.
That said, I really want to try out the RSN Destroyers and Frigates, so we'll see how it goes short-term. Right now, I'm almost finished the initial wash on the Carrier and Battlecruiser; next step is the metal drybrushing.
