Firestorm Armada ships and The Iron Brigade

As promised yesterday here are a few pictures of my recently completed minis.  I put the finishing touches on my Firestorm Armada Aquans this morning.  I just added as Battle Carrier, a Heavy Cruiser, and six Mine Escorts.  Here are some pictures. (any advice on improving these would be appreciated)

The whole fleet.

The Cruiser Squadron.

The two frigate squadrons.

The capital ships all together.

Firestorm Armada isn't the only thing I'm working on.  Here are some pictures of my 90% finished Iron Brigade.  All they need is flocking.  If you look closely you will see my next brigade (my first confederates) in the background.

The figures are from Scale Creep Miniatures and the flags are those of the 6th Wisconsin Volunteers by Cotton Jim's Flags.

Hope you enjoyed.  Feel free to comment below.


  1. Like I said on TMP, I really like your Aquans. Any chance of a tutorial on how you painted them?

  2. I'll see what I can do, Scribe. I've been thinking of ordering some more cruisers anyway.

  3. The ACW figures look very nice, what rules are you using?

  4. Ray, we've recently returned to playing Fire and Fury. If you have the time it gives you the best civil war feel of any of the ACW rules I've played.
