Damn the Plasma Torpedos, Full Speed Ahead!

Thanks to a good friend of mine, I got into Star Trek Attack Wing. I've been a huge fan of the X-Wing game for a while, so it seemed like Attack Wing was a given... But I had some reservations about the game... Mainly the model quality... WizKids is known for their shitty figures, and while some of these Attack Wing ships are pretty bad, they aren't completely unsalvageable. After dealing with the X-Wing ships from Fantasy Flight Games, anything of lesser quality is a bit annoying, but I am not going to let it stop me from enjoying a good game. Luckily with a little more work and effort, the Attack Wing ships can look really nice.

I've been playing Star Trek Online for 2 years now and I've fallen in love with the Romulans. Well, I always loved the Romulan ships in the show, so it wasn't a hard choice. They also play more to my defensive nature than the Balls to the Wall Klingons, so they are a natural fit play style wise; which is always good.  I'd gotten the Starter Set and 2 ship Expansions to flesh out a Romulan faction fleet. With the D'deridex from the Starter, I added the Valdore and the Praetus Ships. I've only had a few days to work on them but I have finished the smaller Praetus. The Valdore is base coated and washed. The TripleD is being primed.
