  1. It is quite the contrast huh! The white is an air brushed light grey (vallejo, forget the name) gradient up to 50/50 grey/white. Then I pin wash the dark lines with a light body black wash and after Ive painted decks/metallics I edge in pure white.
  2. Not finished painting anything new yet but I have taken a few more pictures.
  3. Yeh, it's just a normal flying base. All my fliers + flying bases are magnetised so I added a magnet on the underside of the saw "tray" and was good to go. I was soooo tempted to do that cool thing Ive seen several folks do - to saw off the individual fighter planes and attach them to wires - but just don't have the time atm.
  4. The decks are just a light tan (Coat d-arms Horse Tone Roan) thats washed with Army Painter Strong Tone Ink (aka GW devlan mud). The flight decks are the same with the added steps (a) when dry brushing the gold trim around the sides, mess up and splotch gold onto the decks (b) panic and dry brush white in the middle of the deck + stipple black/brown wash around the edges to cover up the mess you made (c) hope that nobody notices
  5. Thanks everyone
  6. Love the detail work on the hulls - adds a real elegance to the look.
  7. Here's my theme - I wanted to go with Republique red, white and blue but in a more understated way. So Ive gone mainly white ships/skimmers and red flyers with red/white trim + blue windows. Metallics are almost all "dirty" gold with a little silver trim close up of ships flier closeup
  8. And here's the big group shot - thats pretty much everything Ive painted so far. Still plenty more to do though
  9. These fliers look way shinier in the photo that in real life
  10. Thanks matey. Had a lot of trouble getting the lances to look right - lots of failed attempts before I found one on this forum (forget whos) to copy Speaking of lances - here's more.
  11. Inspired by several great fleets on this forum I went with a contrasting red for my fliers. I spent ages airbrushing a graduated red on them but it doesnt really show in the photo *sob*
  12. Hiya. Ive been collected RoF models for ages but only recently started to work through them and paint them up. Also trying to improve my photography and get better at photographing minis - so feedback/opinions welcome
