Preview – Scandinavian Aeronef

I had meant to include images of the Scandinavian Union Aeronef models in yesterday’s post, but time had overtaken me and I didn’t get the photos taken (and, if truth be told, three of the models weren’t quite finished). But that’s all the more excuse for another post today with pretty pictures ! The photos aren’t the greatest, I had trouble getting the lighting right in a hurry so they’re a bit dark but you see them clearly enough. And of course there are no turrets on any of the models (they will have a mix of large and small turrets on each ship) so you won’t get the full effect until the turrets have been cast and we can make up some complete models. But enough with the excuses, on with the photos !

There are ten models – all are one-piece hulls apart from the battlecruiser and battleship, which have separate superstructures (which will allow me to make variants at a later date). I haven’t named any yet apart from the Lillehammer battlecruiser, I need to do a bit of research first into suitable names.

The models are on their way to Phil for casting, so we’re still aiming for a SELWG release for at least some of the fleet, if not all.

Wow, those look great! And Scandahoovian names shouldn’t be too hard to find. How about:

Odin
Thor
Loki
Mjölnir
Hjörvaror
Valdemar
Tyrfing
Ingjald
Fenrir
Sleipnir
Ragnarök
Aun
Freyja (also known as Freya or Frigg)
Jötnar

A few more:

Kings, Queens and the like:

– Drottning Victoria

properties:
– äran (honour, glory)
– tapperheten (bravoure, vaillance)
– manligheten (manliness9
– dristigheten (audacity, boldness)

Thanks for all of the suggestions, chaps. I’m think I’m going to go more with towns/cities and famous people/kings/queens etc for names rather then the Norse mythology-derived ones, mainly because we already use a lot of these names in other ranges (we have a Woden class 6mm tank and the Wotan class Land Ironclad; imagine the confusion if we also had the Odin class aeronef !).
