    Empire of the Seas

    I just ran across this four-part documentary series on the history of the Royal Navy. It doesn't get to SOG's time period until episode 3, but the whole thing is quite good.

    If you're looking at the pants, they're supposed to be a cream color, not white. I'm still not the happiest with the result, but it's not all from the Nuln Oil. The next one I did looked less dirty.

    Thanks! This is what my decks look like now. I guess I should also clarify: I'm new to painting miniatures, but I used to paint on canvas.

    That's a good idea. I wonder how best to make it work with the other arcs. Maybe the center arc dot to the corners of the base?

    For firing arcs, I may split the base diagonally into four sections/arcs more or less like the bases in X-Wing, if anyone is familiar with that. These would use the fore and aft arcs, and pivot guns...
