This week’s finished project for #miniaturemonday is a Tsunami-class heavy cruiser or Firestorm Armada.
I’m quite pleased with how this turned out. I put more of the secondary colours onto this model in comparison to the standard cruisers and I think the effect is much more interesting. For this ship I added a red squadron marking as I envisage these ships being employed more aggressively than the ordinary cruisers. With luck I will finish the rest of the squadron in the next few weeks.
This week for Miniature Monday I have been able to paint up a Vanguard-class submarine for Dystopian Wars.
I used my standard black/gunmetal hull with red and white details and bronze for the pipes. I quite enjoyed painting the waterline base. It was done with Regal Blue, shaded with Asurman Blue wash, then highlighted with Enchanted Blue, Ice Blue and finally Skull White.
So far, I have one surfaced version and one submerged done. I also have more Britanian cruisers in progress as well as Aquan heavy cruisers for Firestorm Armada. Hopefully I will be able to show you them next week.
Another Miniature Monday has rolled round and I’m pleased to be able to report that on this occasion I have something to show you all.
This week’s completed project is the Britanian Majesty-class Dreadnought for Dystopian Wars:
Painting this ship, I followed the same colour scheme I have been using for the other ships I have painted for this fleet. I’m quite happy with how the red and white trim contrasts with the black/gunmetal hull. I’m also quite pleased with how well the bronze I used to pick out the ram in the prow came out.
Here is a picture of the Dreadnought with my Ruler-class Battleship, which I don’t think I’ve had the chance to show off on the blog either:
And in turn, the Battleship with the cruiser that was the first ship I painted up for the Britanians:
The next project for the Britanians will be to finish of the cruiser’s squadron mates. After that the time has probably come to look at the Frigates and Destroyers.
