Made some more progress on these. Last things are the inkwash for the hulls (which are a slightly lightened Paynes Gray.), and some rigging, especially the Alexandra.

Dreadnought

Collingwood

Thunderer

Orion

    1. Hasn't been done yet.. I have a hundred egyptians to paint before Froday morning.. so these might take a bit of a back seat for a few days...

  2. You thinking of using these with DBSA or something else?

  3. I reckon I will try 'Dark Days of Admiralty' at first, although Dave T. also suggested something like Naval Thunder ?

    With small numbers of ships per side, I would be happy to do some bookkeeping. And as I have access to a laminator, ship record sheets for each of my Pre-Dreadnoughts, with a whiteboard marker shouldn't be too onerous.
