Victory is mine!

... the Victory-class super galactic dreadnought, that is.  To celebrate the new look for the eponymous blog title, I thought I'd share some more photos of the SGDN I recently painted
The ship is mounted on a "Super-Nova" base from Monday Knight Productions.
This massive model consists of 16 ounces of lead, and it's about half a foot (more than 15 cm) long.  It took me a couple of hours to get it painted.
The super galactic dreadnoughts were among the second generation of designs for the Starfleet Wars universe.  They first made their appearance in the Book 2 supplement, which recommends not using more than two in a single battle for game balance reasons.  The Observer's Directory & Identification Manual features diagrams of the ships and their weapons.
Like most of the old Superior Models designs, the Victory's underside is just as detailed as its dorsal surface.  Because I haven't glued the model to its base, I'm able to show off what usually goes unseen on the game table.
These massive ships are also a part of the Galactic Knights game, where their multiple shields, massive armor, and numerous weapons make them a dangerous foe.
I can't wait to see how this plays in a game.  I already have a scenario in mind, but I'm gonna need another player or three ...
