Arrr, it’s the pirate ship! With the ladycaptain!
…and the cool sail designs.
This time I went for a wood plank coloured deck instead of the black one. Makes the ship look more ‘proper’ whilst sacrificing a bit of tightness on the colour scheme, but I’m rather happy with it.
My favourite part of this one has got to be the turquoise colour to play with on the sails and flags.
Thanks for the comment, Matt! You're absolutely right, it varies from ship to ship. Apart from that I painted all the hulls of the ships first and then all the sails in one go. So I'm afraid I couldn't tell you an average time even if I wanted. 😀
These posts never fail to make me fell bad about my unpainted ships. Great work, as always. This is arguably one of the most 'boring' sculpts, but you've done it justice with a stark, high-contrast scheme.
If I make people feel bad about themselves then my job is well done. 😉 But if that helps: My own Dreadfleet set still is unpainted and on sprues. Exactly the same state it was in back in 2011 when I reviewed it.
Yeah, this one's a tiny bit more sombre in terms of the model, but as you said: That's what the painting is for. 🙂
That´s some very good looking sails =)
Freehand painting at the highest level 😀
Thanks Anon, but the designs on the sails are cast on, I just painted them. 😉 The sail on the small cog in the last picture I freehanded though.

Beautiful stuff. I know it probably varies, but what's your average paint time on these ships?
