Somewhere in the Barents sea

I’m trying out the shipwreck rules this Friday, so I thought I would post some pictures of a few of my recently rebased cold war ships. I picked up some of the Vallejo water effects paint and I have to say I’m impressed by the stuff. It goes on easily and quickly gives you a nice seascape. With a bit of a dry brushing, a wash and then some varnish you’re away. Only problem is now I’m looking at the twenty odd pre-dreadnoughts I’ve got and thinking a re-basing is in order.

I’ve also been busy converting some Pendraken medieval welsh in to some Picts to face down my Romano-Brits. Hopefully ill get some photos of them and a battle report from the shipwreck game tomorrow up on the blog over the weekend.

The ships are 1:3000 from Navwar and are a type 22 frigate, type 42 frigate and HMS Invincible with a lone sea harrier on CAP for the royal navy and a Udaloy class destroyer for the Soviets.
