Dreadfleet Commission Completed

We have just finished another Dreadfleet Commission. Thats noew 5 Dreadfleet commissions comeplted in 2 years. I must admit that this particular box set instills fear into me. The miniatures are exceptionally detailed plastic models. The color schemes for each of the ships is quite varied and each miniature is so very individulaistic in it’s theme. Granted that once paitned the games does look very nice, but getting it painted does take a large amount of time and energy.

Dreadfleet Skabrus

When I first saw a picture of the Skabrus, I thought that this ship was going to be the hardest. The awful dirty colours, the see through sickening skin and the intricate parts made for a hard ship. Well guess what, the ship was actually very easy to do, as […]
