A strong platform

Next up for the Gates of Antares Isorian army is the Nhamak Light Support Drone platform.  As I have mentioned in the previous Antares posts, this return to sci-fi has also meant a return to some brighter, more saturated color schemes.

This particular return to sci-fi also involves a more 'natural' or organic set of shapes, so there's even more color selection freedom!  This carapice was a great opportunity to try out some different color combos.

As I work through this force, I'm even more glad that I went with the deck plating style of basing.  The neutral gray tones are a perfect method to offset these brighter more saturated colors.  The occasional accents of safety stripes and other markings brings a bit of that warm color down onto the base too.

This view from above gives you a sense of that color contrast.

And now for a few shots of just the platform.  The next set will likely be the command staff, so stay tuned!!


  1. Loving this take on the colour scheme. Look forward to the next instalment!

    1. Thanks! It's certainly been lots of fun!
