Tumbling Dice Victorian Ironclads 
I've had no time to get on with the early ironclads over the last couple of days but I did find manage to try out a bit of basic blocking in on the French twin decker Solferino. It's all a bit crude at the moment but will be tidied up and given a wash to tone things down a bit later on. I still need to paint the masts, ratlines and boats beforehand.
I'm not sure if I should swap over the shades that I've used for the sails (Foundry Canvas) and the decking (Foundry Boneyard), as the latter seems too light and the former too dark? It's all a bit experimental anyway, so I'm sure I'll be playing around with various combinations of colours before I hit on the exact formula that I'm after.
