Niðavellir Shipyard

The Nidavellir Shipyard is a large UCM Shipyard hidden far away from any planetary system.
After the scattering of humans after the first Scourge attack many ships used their ftl drives and made an random Foldspace jump just to get away. Many of this ships found themselves alone in the dark, to close to a star or a black hole and perished but some made it to an empty place in space. And that’s how the Nidavellir belt was discovered. A collection of large rocks, asteroids in different sizes and collection of dust and sand. Exactly how this place come to be, far from any sun, placed in between systems is not known. It is believed it was created after an extremely unlikely collision of two larger celestial body, with no stronger gravity pull in the vicinity this collection of minerals and rocks have held together by their own combined pull of each other. The scatter of large rocks and the natural background radioactivity have created a hiding place. After the survivors made contact with the now formed UCM the area have been put to good use.

Named after the Norse mythology Nidavellir, the world of the dwarves, for its rich mineral and metal resources. Perfectly for foundries and a large shipyard complex.

This is the place to produce ships...

Santiago class Corvette squadron

Here we have have a small squadron of Santiago class Corvettes for my UCM.
The work in progress pictures have been shown previously here

Each of these ships are given a special decoration to break up the somewhat boring military grey colour scheme. To make them somewhat more interesting to look at.
I just love the Santiago class Corvettes, they are a nice design and were fun to paint.

But I think I got some ships from an new mould as the "lines" from the 3d printing of the original models are clearly seen and I didnt manage to hide it all in the painting. But besides that disappointment I really like the miniatures.

It was hard to get good light today and it was all snowy outside so taking a picture outside was not an option, hope you see the details good enough.

For the last ship in the squadron 132, I gave her a pin up girl "Take- off time"

The 131 with the Trireme Eye and 133 with there "no guts- no glory!
