Tonight I finished the first half of my Chinese Union Starfleet. All the ships in this fleet are from Brigade Models European Federation line. I've included Ned for size reference. The first picture is of a group of 4 frigates and 6 destroyers.
The picture below is of 4 heavy cruisers.
The detail on these minis is not quite as good as the Ground Zero Games ones but the magic dip really brought out the existing detail. In the next few days I should get the other half of the fleet completed.
Last night I had Chris over and we played a couple games of GMT's Twilight Struggle. We each took a turn playing the US and the USSR. I ended up winning both games. The image below shows the board at the end of the first game in which the USSR had won.
Each game took somewhere between 3 and 3 1/2 hours to play. Like CCA it is a card driven game, but unlike CCA the cards don't really force you to play in certain areas. And as I've stated in a previous post, the components (especially the board) are top notch.
