Well, yes, that is a way to say it. A couple of years ago (2010...) I had a sparkle of inspiration. Why did the Imperium call the Corsair Eldar ships after old Terra grown flowers like the Nightshade en Hemlock? Only because of their comparable sting? Or perhaps their colouring? With that latter I went and started to repaint my old Corsair models using images of the flowers as an inspiration.

Of course that meant I had to find inspiration for the capital ships as well. A name as Aurora made it easy, Solaris a tad more tricky but Eclipse and Shadow required some thinking on how to paint.
It is something that applied to all models, they were kinda painted outside the "BFG-box"of colouring. Some may like it, others perhaps not. :)

No more ramblings here they come!

Always love your work Horizon but you've outdone yourself with that Eclipse.

Those are just brilliant - grand show, that has to be the nicest BFG fleet I've seen.

Thanks for all the nice and positive words!

Makes doing projects like this even more worthwhile and fun.
