Yup, finished! Time to do some group shots, right?
The pretty ships and all aside, I really, really dig that water table blanket. I used mine not only for Dreadfleet, but also for Dystopian Wars and for playtesting a WW2 carrier attack aerial game.

Painting the Dreadfleet set is always enjoyable. Maybe it’s the fact that I got quite some experience doing it by now, but it also has a very good mix of things to do. Each of the capital ships is completely different and on each of them you can do different things.
The scenic bits are very cool, as are the markers. The only problem I see is that there are too few Fantasy naval battle games out there these days! Well, maybe GW redo ManOWar some time in the future.
So yeah, that’s done then I say. 🙂 I hope you enjoyed the pictures and if you want your Dreadfleet set painted feel free to contact me! Dreadfleet is kinda like Space Marines to me – I just don’t get sick of painting them. It’s weird, but it’s true.
That water blanket in the DF boxed set it so great. And people love it! they use it for all kinds of games.
Wish I'd bought this at the time, but beautiful to look at nonetheless…
There still are a bunch of sets around, not just for silly prices on ebay, but also on some stores and such. Look around and I think sooner or later you'll score a copy. 🙂 It's worth it too! (and please consider Battle Brush Studios if you need them painted 😉 )
Gorgeous stuff! Very inspiring
Such awesome miniatures. Great paintjob!
Thanks very much, Platon!
The water on the bases really look good with the mat. What was your recipe for water?
Cheers. It was basically dusting for primer, heavy white highlights for preshading, some oil colours, washes and more highlights. 🙂
