Its great to be painting again.  Some of these have been sitting on the workbench for almost 4 years.  I decided to give the a "family" appearance, and applied this kind of scheme to all of the ships...

Very nicely done. The consistent fleet-wide scheme should look great on the table.

If the Free French or Vichy could have ever put a force like that to sea, WWII in the Atlantic / Med would have turned out very differently.

I thought something looked weird.  That's what happens when you finish painting something 4 years after you started.  No worries...one more repaint won't kill me.

Added a couple new French ships.  First, Courbet...




I had a couple badly mutilated Richelieu miniatures sitting around and I decided to make one of the a full conversion to a carrier to hang out with the other Fantasy French BBs...

Very sharp decks. The hybrid conversion looks really tight and clean. Very nicely done.

Looking forward to getting Brigman's card for the carrier on the map!



My mini isn't a perfect match (it has 5xtriple 6" turrets and would warrant a higher MG score), but close enough!
