Sunday Starships: Sathar work in progress

Some small progress on some of the Sathar vessels from last summer's Half-Price Books purchase:  I have them primed and based.
As you can see, I used a new technique for basing the light cruiser--two 1-inch stands instead of a larger (1½-inch or more) single base.  This provides a steady platform for these ships, which I may use for the larger Sathar models as well.
I plan on trying a new paint scheme on these, but I'm not sure exactly what colors I'll use just yet.  In the meantime, I primered them a medium gray, which came out very bright in the photos because of the camera flash (as evident on the frigate below).
I'm not yet sure if I will use these models to represent a new species coming into contact with the Five Powers or just as noncombatants of some sort (those Sathar light cruisers would make good tankers, for example).  Either way, if anyone has any suggestions for a color scheme, feel free to share.
