And here are the pics of the freshly painted ships:
The terrain they’re photographed on is my new terrain mat and islands from the imaginatively named Terrain Mat, which I highly recommend.
Yes, the 3D effect is real. It’s basically the paint that is stippled/rolled/painted on fairly thickly, so there is some texture to the mat. Not that much, but definitely noticeable. A funny consequence of that is that you can order the mat in several scales - funny concept, that :).
