A Long Time Ago in a Hobby Shop Far, Far Away...

... a Young Lad Saw Starships...

...And they were GLORIOUS....

...But He Couldn't Afford Anything Much 
Larger Than a Destroyer...

...And Then They Disappeared it Seemed for Forever...

And Then One Day Many Years Later They Returned!

 And Being a Grown-up With Some Pocket Money to Spare, 
at Last, He Had a Fleet!

In Fact, More Than One Fleet...

And So The Conquest of the Galaxy Can at Last Begin!


  1. Well played, sir. And nice fleets as well. Who makes these models?

    1. Monday Knight Productions currently: http://www.mondayknight.com/Miniature%20Pages/GalacticKnights/GalacticKnightsShips.htm

      Originally they were produced by Superior Miniatures back in the late 1970s. They disappeared for circa 20 years until Bill Char somehow managed to buy the moulds off of the original owner and passed them along to MKP, where they've been in production ever since along with the 1/300 scale MAATAC AFVs from the same game setting (and same origins).

    1. Indeed, they are !!!!!!!!!!!!! and thensome! ;)

      Next I'll post some shots of my Entomalian and Aquarian squadrons.... stay tuned! ;)

  3. Looking great!

    I've loved these ships going back to decades ago as well; I acquired quite a few of them back then, and then more recently to round out my four fleets.

    A whole bunch of Galactic Knights/Starfleet wars posts from my own blog are at:



    1. Peter,

      nice to see you're exploring the possibilities of that modular space station. I have some odds and ends I'm thinking of integrating into an asteroid base along the lines of the one in the last photo...

  4. Nice looking fleets! As you can tell from my blog, I'm a big fan of that line of miniature starships. I also like your asteroid base. How'd you make that?

    1. The base? That's classified. Seriously, I am going to put together a tutorial for the Metal Express site in the next week or two, so you'll have to stay tuned to that TBD wavelength for an in-depth report on that hidden rebel base.... >;)
