Well I've gone and done it! I've finished my Dreadfleet painting project, below are the 7 auxillary cogs, which means I've now painted every warship, auxillary, sea monster and island in the game. I've enjoyed it overall and am pleased with the result, even if it did feel like I'd never get there at some points, it's nice to feel that I've actually managed to finish a project for once as well.
The 'Good' Pirate Cogs
The 'Bad' Pirate Cogs
It all looks rather good painted up I reckon.
In truth I could still paint the ruler, turning templates and wind guage, but I'm not going to, can't see the point!
