Avast! Dreadfleet on the painting table...

Recommended Posts

After wrapping up painting the core box of Mythic Battles, I needed to work on something different before pressing on with all the stretch goals I have yet to paint. So I am getting going on my copy of Dreadfleet from Games Workshop. I picked up a copy recently for a very low price.

Now... I know that Dreadfleet is out of print, unsupported by GW, not popular, and not even a very well reviewed game. But that didn’t matter to me. It’s the first pirate genre mini-based game I’ve seen that really captured my interest. The minis are absolutely incredible and I love the blending of high-fantasy and nautical themes. I’ve started by tackling some of the terrain before I test my abilities with the ships. Here’s the first piece I’ve done:

I've never heard of this game, but I really like this terrain and the way you've painted it. The contrast between the very dark rocks and the lava is great, the stairs seems to be made from another kind of rock, brought from afar... it works very well, in my opinion.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing more miniatures and terrains from this game! Have fun painting them!

Thanks so much @Not Quite Dead! These are really fun to paint so far. Assembling and painting the gorgeous ships will be challenging and fun as well I presume. 

Look up the game if you want to see some stunning fantasy pirate minis, especially the ones painted by experts. 

Here’s a few more pieces I knocked out last night:

Well, I love it.

 

After my post, yesterday, I had a look through a search engine and this game is quite different from the other I've seen on this theme. I guess it will be a real change to paint these ships instead of miniatures of people. The scale could be challenging as well, indeed, as some ships seem to have a lot of details.

Got the major pieces of scenery done. Now for the small bits and sea monsters. Building up to tackling the ships eventually...

Slowed down recently, house renovation took over my life. But getting the navigation tools done now. Will probably tweak a few things, but almost there...
