Pugwash Paints - League of Italian States Grand Fleet

Recommended Posts

I've just finished painting my League of Italian States fleet.  Congratulations to the Spartan designer/sculptor, these are some beautiful models!  I decided on a light coloured dazzle/zebra pattern to highlight the sleek lines of the ships (although I was briefly tempted by the dress white and gold filigree of the Spartan fleet).  It consists of 1 x Carrier, 4 x Destroyer, 2 x Battleships, 6 x Cruiser, 16 x Frigate/Escort, 4 x Bomber, 16 x Tiny Flyer Token and 12 x Motor Torpedo Boats.

Those look great. I have to second Arachnodork, that dazzle is well done wit smooth nice transitions that aren't to stark to adjacent colors. And I love the work on the wakes of the torpedo boats. Thank you for sharing!

Simply wonderful. I just had to look through the pictures again and again (and surely will do so again after posting). Thank you for your pictures that makes me want to continue painting my Italians really bad. I'd love to see some close ups of the "Napoli" and as many of the other ships as you care taking pictures of.

 Many thanks all

 

Dang, those are some nice ships. A really well done subtle dazzle effect. I really think the carrier and MTBs are great. Would you mind sharing the names you gave the ships too? I'd appreciate it!

 

As to names, I usually draw on real ship names to designate my models.  So, Carrier: Aqila, Battleships: Napoli, Sicilia, Cruisers: Zara, Pola, Fiume, Giuseppe Garabaldi, Varese, Francesco Ferruccio, Destroyers: Calatifimi, Audace, Impetouso, Indomito etc.

 

Thanks rufus, I'll see what I can do about close ups.
