Frequent visitors to the blog (from before my sabbatical) may recall the Battlefleet 1900 games we played, re-enacting some battles from the Russo-Japanese War. Well, while at Partizan this year I saw some excellent 1:2400 ships on the Tumbling Dice stand. Spying an opportunity to snatch up some excellent models at a bargain price, I bought the £40 starter pack. This doesn't supplant the 1:3000 WTJ models I already have, but rather allows for some new modelling opportunities and will be used to enact smaller ship-to-ship engagements rather than the fleet actions of the smaller-scale ships.
These were really easy to paint, one of those models that are so well-sculpted that some judicious base layering followed by some simple washes does most of the work for you. I'm doing a battle on Saturday so I'll try and get some photos of that up for you then.
Let me know what you think!
