I've already managed to paint the first lot of my 1/3000 scale ships from navwar. I decided to start with the random ones, before moving onto the ships for my WW2 British fleet. I'm pleased with these and they paint up really well, for most of them it was a simple case of black undercoat, them paint grey all over, black wash, grey drybrush and the paint the decking and details. I think that I'll easily make my goal of having them all done by the weekend and am already putting my second order together.
I've not based any of them yet as I can't decide weather to paint the bases green (which would work with my pea-green table) or blue (just seems more sea like).
