Started my Brittania fleet. I've done the starter pack ones (shown below) though I'm not too happy with the fighters due to botching the undercoat twice; I've ordered spares so these will probably be replaced in due time.

Chose a sort of 'British Racing Green' to go with it (Vallejo Black Green primarily), going with a red water line and steel/bronze for the metal bits.

Carrier and Hawk Scout Rotors to follow (not painted yet, only partially constructed).

They look great. It would be nice with a few close-ups. The sculpts and the painting looks great.

Cheers,

Have the carrier and scout rotors primed in black at the moment. Gonna put up a closer look at the bomber or one of them (unfinished) next.

The close-ups look great to me. I like the green/wooden deck combination. What Vallejo Colours did you use for that green effect, from the Model range I presume?

On a black undercoat, I put the metal first, then go over in a thinned (with thinner medium) Vallejo Black Green (the white topped line), for a couple of layers. After that's dried, I put a very little amount of bronze (citadel) drybrushed over some of the rivets to make them stand out.

That is nice! The little navy flag freehand is very good.

Though everybody knows the Prussian Empire will prevail at the end, I appreciate your efforts you arrogant Brit!:p

Either waiting for the Dreadnought and small ships for the next lot (hopefully out soon), or I might get another faction to do as a secondary force.

I might try and flag up the rest (the bigger ships), but I'll probably wait until I'm doing the Dreadnought when it's out.

That's a beautiful battleship, you've done an excellent job on it, mate.

Any games on the horizon? I don't know muxh about this system, you should give us a battle report ;)

That carrier is killer. I've recently started Firestorm, and I was wondering if you've had trouble fitting the pegs into bases for your fliers? Mine won't go with cutting away the end to be inserted.

All my Dystopian Wars ones have fit rather easily. They are a bit tight, but they go without cutting or filing. Try to gently hammer them in with something like a paintpot or pair of pliers if they are close to fitting.

Destroyers are now (finally) done:

I might retake the photo if I can find my blue notebook I put them on for the other photos.

The subs are mostly done, and should be finished quite soon and then the Escorts which aren't so done yet.

Great models, lovely paint job. Every time I see a plog like this it makes me want to start one of the spartan fleet games...
