A view from below

While everyone knows the Starfleet Wars/Galactic Knights miniatures are very detailed, not many people realize the undersides of these figures are intricate as well.  I still have a few unpainted ships on hand, so I thought I'd give my readers a look at the ventral sides of these vessels.  First, some Avarian spaceships:
Avarian stellar cruiser

Avarian galactic battlecruiser

Avarian galactic attack carrier
As you can see, the Avarian ships look pretty good from beneath.  Now take a look at some of the Terran craft:
Terran stellar destroyer

Terran galactic battlecruiser

Terran galactic attack carrier
As you can see, the Earth ships look just as good from below as they do from above.  Since I base all my ships, players don't really get to appreciate the detailing on the undersides of these models.  It's almost enough to make me want to get some telescoping flight stands and figure out some 3-D rules--almost.
