Launching a Sorylian Fleet

I have [not so] recently begun to delve into the game Firestorm Armada, which is a space fleet combat game. My efforts are thus far toward the creation of a Sorylian fleet.

One of the ships that really drew me to the game, and specifically the Sorylian fleet, is the now classic frigate. To me it exemplifies perfectly the Sorylian aesthetic of rounded plates over an industrial-looking superstructure.

My paint scheme is derived in part from the cartoon Last Exile, based on both the Anatoray battleships and the squadron markings on the Sylvana's vanships.

First two frigates, mostly complete. I am still working on the techniques necessary to paint a decent engine glow effect, so no pictures aft until I paint it more than black.
