since I bought dreadfleet, it'd be a shame not to paint them and post them, wouldn't it? I started off with the stalwart dwarven ship Grimnir's Thunder to get my bearings, and a solid steel deck to avoid that damn seasickness!
The result of the first ship:
Luckily I took some pictures of all my steps, among other things to show off the difference between basic metal and metal with the addition of a wash. Here we go, step by step:
First some basic layers of the non-metallish stuff
Then the metal, I always hate this part.
Luckily washes come to the rescue! They're a blessing from the deity of painting I tell ya!
And finally the painting of the water. I'm pleased how that turns out. The Dreadfleet White Dwarf with the painting guide for water was a sound investment.
1 down, 9 ships, 9 auxiliaries and dozens upon dozens of terrain peaces and markers to go! * urgh *
