Full Thrust: Cold Navy Deisho Heavy Assault Group

Today's post showcases a Deisho Heavy Assault Group from Ravenstar's Cold Navy range supported by fighters from Brigade Models and statted up for Full Thrust.  The ships were a gift and a little battered and missing some parts, but I've patched up the voids, added some turrets from the bits box, and repurposed the mounting points for the conning towers as lateral hanger bays and docking arrays. 
 
 
In FT terms the group consists of one superdreadnought (with two fighter groups), two heavy battleships (each with one fighter group), one fleet carrier (with eight fighter groups), and two escort cruisers.  Most stat write-ups use standard rules, although the escort cruisers carry Light Pulse Torpedoes, the rules for which can be found here:
 

 
The escort cruisers are on 1" bases, the larger ships are all on 1.5" bases.  The models are all resin with a few metal add-ons on some, and are quite stable compared to similarly sized metal figs.
