A Slight Change of Plan


I've decided that instead of the Prussian, Danish and Austrian ships for the Second Schleswig War, I'm going to paint the French ironclads that I've assembled for the counterfactual 'What If?' Anglo French conflict that I've been gaming over the holidays. This will give me some much needed time to work out how to paint 1/2400th scale ships and also enable me to get the French back onto the table for a game or two over the next few months. The 1864 stuff can then be tackled afterwards, once I've painted the British ironclads as the perfidious enemy. Good plan!

  2. What colour scheme are you intending to use? war-time grey or peace time black & white?

  3. Black hulls, white boot topping, wooden decks, brown/yellow masts and off white sails.

  4. That's basically what I'm going to use for my RJW - more interesting than all grey
