Recently I received Quantum Expanse, the models are clean resin casts and have perfected a paint scheme. These models should would work well with other rule sets (the QE rule set is currently a basic beer & pretzels type).
Now before I paint the entire fleet I have run into a conundrum and would like to hear your feed back.If I paint all 48 ships the same pattern and try to play a two player game with just these ships, I am concerned the game area will look both confusing and visually bland.
How have you all dealt with painting large fleets of ships that are modeled similar but used as mixed or separate fleets? Any thoughts on painting patterns or basing before I commit my 48+ ships to the brush?
