Uncharted Seas human fleet

August 2, 2009 5:34 PM - Posted by Robartes - Category: Wet Paint

… and they’re done. Bartholomeus Sinister Grassus’ (also known as Black Bart in this setting) fleet is ready to take to the seas:

Uncharted seas human fleet 1

Uncharted seas human fleet 2

Uncharted seas human fleet 3

That’s one battleship, three cruisers, 6 frigates and 3 martyr ships (frigates that go boom, as indicated by the ducks carrying bombs on the sails), or 10 points worth of Olley points. Good start to the month.

I’m not entirely happy with the decals though. First off, they turned out to be on white paper, so I had to rethink how I was going to do them and print a dark background for them. Second, I’m not that pleased with how they sit on the sails - probably the same as a commercial decal, but still. Oh well, this was my first time using decal paper like this, so let’s call it a learning experience.

The painted ships look good, it’s a nice alternative style compared to the ubiquitous Warhammer-fantasy look. I had a number of decals lying around (mostly fantasy/medieval), but no ducks or geese, so they were probably of not much use ;-)
