COLLECTION DIARY: JANUARY 2014

I got most of The Earth Defense Force Fleet taken care of this month, and I also added some cool little escort craft to The Garmillas Imperial Fleet. I am incorporating the classic STAR BLAZERS models  with the new YAMATO 2199 range. The models scale well, and look good together. Now I will be able to have great diversity in my games, as I can play different time lines, and mix older ships with the newer classes. This is how the series presented these ships too, as the story progressed so did the ships.


The Earth Defense Force has always been one of my all time favorite Starlets in all of Sci-Fi, and now I have the start of a damn fine representation of these heroes and their enemies...LOVE!


Amidst all of the Earth Force models, I also got a cute large sized screen accurate version of The Death Star...which is a good way to start the new year, I think. This is the BIG Daddy model among my STAR WARS Backdrop-ships. It will look very cool on the table, but unlike the other Backdrop-ships in my collection, which do little more than represent reinforcements, and look cool as part of the background terrain, this version of the Deathstar will directly affect the battles.

Boss out!
