NATO reinforcements

NATO 1

USS Spruance and RFA Fort George get a fly past from a p-3 Orion. The ships are navwar 1:3000 the aircraft is 1:1200 from Magister Militum. Painting 1:1200 aircraft is a bit of new experience for me and one that I haven’t quite got the hang of yet, so if any one has any technique tips please share them. Also on display here is a kit bashed oil platform which should make a nice objective or target in future games.

I'm a 27 year old wargamer originally from Pendock Worcestershire. I now live in Kingston and work as an architect in Teddington lock. I've been in to wargaming since I was about 9, starting with airfix and revell plastic figures then moving on to games workshop. I'm now manly in to historical naval gaming but I'll play whatever looks like good fun.

    Howdie. I am just getting into modern naval gaming, ordered Shipwreck! and some 1:3000 Navwar ships… I really like the look of your basing method. I was looking for a “how to” post, perhaps I missed it 🙂 What are you doing to the bases to achieve that wave pattern (putty?) ?

      Good choice shipwreck is a great fun rule set, and you can’t beat the range and price of ships available from navwar.
      Glad you like the basing method. I haven’t made a how to post but I can, I’m currently rebasing all by pre dreadnoughts with this method so ill take some pics of the stages. Basically the texture is just vallejo water effects (great product) stippled on to the base in a line with a bit of balsa wood. Then painted up with 3 layers of dry brushing a wash to blend them then some gloss varnish

    Thanks. I saw that you mentioned the vallejo in one post, I think I will give this a try for my own stuff. Looks great!
