Starfighter Decals SFD-10: Klingon Empire common markings
|$10.00 from www.starfighter-decals.com|
|For Star Fleet Battles +|
Many decades ago, your editor was trying to get into war gaming. The few that I played with others were fun and one that I bought but could never get anyone else interested in trying was a game called Star Fleet Battles. I even went as far as to purchase some small Star Fleet and Klingon pieces to replace some of the cardboard squares that generally come with these games. Alas, I found that these really ate into modeling time and with the reluctance of others to participate, the hobby died in the very early years. At least it did for me.
This is not true of others and both Star Fleet Battles and another called Federation Commander are going hot and heavy.
This set of Klingon markings is designed for Amarillo Design Bureau's Starline 2400 series of pieces. There are two identical sheets in this set and the markings are designed to fit six different Klingon ships.
Both sheets are superbly marked and are standard water slide decals. You'll have to cut out some of the bits and pieces as areas on some are interconnected with clear decal. About the only thing not on this sheet are ship names which you can get from another sheet. The set comes with several color placement guides.
Overall, it is great sheet for the war gamer and those who are into displaying small models such as these. If you want to learn more about the gaming system, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Fleet_Battles
