After seeing the scratchbuilt naval forces(http://archdukepiccolo.blogspot.co.nz/2012/02/more-on-naval-warfare-in-jonos-world.html) I was very tempted to try some of mine, seeing that I had everything necessary to make them.
So yesterday I knocked up the following three ships in around half an hour, and as I painted some SYW 1/72 I threw some paint on them to see how they looked. Two cruisers and a (carrier of sorts) - all based on ice cream sticks and made out of Eraser, glue gun sticks and bits of sprue. They were thrown together rather quickly and the paint job was very fast just to add some colour but a good test run if i wanted to create some more. Out of scale of course as that front turrent looks like it houses a
Karl-Gerät ! and drastically out of balance.
And my French SYW 1/72 figures. Bourbon Infanterie (IR 39), the paint job is unhistorical seeings its the first French of this period I have ever painted but I really like the look of them - Very tempted to go find that box of Front Rank French and Indian war figures I have !
