Naming and (planning) to paint, really.  My main problem has been a lack
names as far as the Shinma goes... I was going to use the translated
as another source, but a flip through it (haven't read it yet) doesn't
many -- any -- names.  So I may have to look elsewhere... though on
reflection, I can't see the Eldar naming a ship "Yuzz-a-ma-Tuzz" so On
Beyond Zebra may not help as much as I'd like. ^_-

Anyway, the ships I'm working on include Miyu, an Eclipse cruiser that
either be black with red highlights or something closer to the blue-gray
outfit she's usually in in the show... either will have the VPM kanji
running down the hood; Larva, a Shadow cruiser that'll be black with
blue highlights and an as-yet undetermined hood (though I'm likely to
imitating his mask); then the two named Shinma from the first two
(Raen and Ranka) as escort squadrons.  They would be painted close to
style of the critters in the anime, though I dunno if I'll be able to
their names on the ships.  Lemures I want to save for a battleship,
one come out, since in the manga (from what I've been told) he's a very
powerful foil for Miyu over the course of time.  He'd be done in
red-on-black, which is why I don't really want to paint Miyu that way. 
Himiko will likely be another Eclipse, with dark green highlights, but
waiting on buying that for now.  (Got enough to paint!)  The armor from
3rd anime episode may show up somewhere, too... also not sure where I'll
put the different shinma yet, squadron-wise.  (Though Raen, the
vampire from ep.1 is likely to go with the Hemlocks, roughly connecting
pulsar lances with fangs... and he was fast, too.)

Hmm, reviewing the LDs real quick, Raen is a.k.a. Baku, so I guess
another name I could use.  And Miyu uses more outfits than I thought...
heh, good, 'cause the blue-gray outfit I was thinking of (ep.1) is also
close to Raen's.  (White, red sash.)  Anyway... I'll muse later, gotta
time to paint now! ^_^;;

More later,
