The overnights are in on the two small warships for the Anglo Dutch Wars period. I have blocked in basic colours only on everything except the decks which habe been drybrushed UP 3 as I would say (ie basic coat + 3).
Some of the colours shown are not the end coulours which will be used for example, the yellow will be overlaid in gilt. The ochre hull will be darkened down to a more oaken shade.

Things are slowly getting resolved but overall, I will have to implement wholesale changes in the way that I get products to market.Ultimately, that will be to everyone's benefit but during the transition,...
Gareth's long running project is nearing completion. He has been kind enough to share the photos as it has developed over the months.
I am sure you will recognize many of the units he has chosen as I did. His lovely, warm painting style combines excellently with attractive basing and Quindia Studios wonderful flags to produce truly breathtaking forces for the tabletop.
