What was on the mail box :
"Hi mate. Heres some finished conversions for my dreadfleet project, Hope you like them. Made 29 in all, including some creatures!"
Off course I like them ! As always, those are some kind of masterpieces !
The word of the artist :
"Back when Dreadfleet was released, i was disappointed to find it was a game of ships. The ships looked great and the game seemed cool, but i was hoping for figures to match the wonderful artwork!
A couple of months back, i decided to make my own characters, some unique, whilst others were copies from the art of the book. I have made 29 so far, and i could easily treble that amount.
I have made 7 of the captains, crew members, sea creatures and other characters. Have to say, been my favourite project to date!
All the models are painted and i'm ready to start the next batch!
Anyone who has seen my usual paint style will find it hard to know these models are mine. The main reason is i have used a white undercoat for the first time ever!
Then all the colours are applied as washes. I tried to recreate the paint effect of the illustrations in the dreadfleet book. I am pleased with the way they look and enjoyed painting in this way.
I will update finished pics of the painted models when i get some decent photos! Lol
My favourite characters are the 3 Figure head females. I used Dryads as the source of the models. The idea for these is they have risen from the wreckage of their sunken ships seeking revenge. I could make a dozen of these, got so many ideas for them.
Hope you enjoy my models.
More to follow soon.... Thank you mate !
Thank you for reading
