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 :D

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.

Really nice ! The color are very top notch

Your heat lance effect is subtle almost realistic and match with the color.

Like the red band on your ship;)

how did you painted the decks?

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 ;)

Who! Great job, man!
Might I ask what's holding up the SAWs? I suppose it's just another flying base, right?

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.

how did you get the white so clean? Nice contrast with my victorian black french fleet ;)

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.

it looks really great! Thanks for the rundown on the white. I might try it myself sometime, but for now I'm staying clear of white paint schemes.
