Where are the Frogs?

I finished the sea bases on the ironclads today, varnished them and added the labels, so they're pretty much finished, bar the ensigns and some rigging, if I can summon up the courage to give it a try. The matt artist's varnish was brushed on but came out very shiny, which happened with my French ironclads as well, although they have subsequently dulled down a lot. To make sure they are suitably matt, I've given the hulls, sails and masts an extra coat of Army Painter Anti-Shine, so that they look less shiny. I'm on to the turret ships and rams next, with a possible diversion into some coastal terrain scratch building if I can squeeze it into the schedule?
