Finally, after more than a year, I’ve finished painting an entire fleet for Uncharted Seas – an Orc Raiders fleet. These guys are the earlier version of the Orcs – decent models in their own right, but not as nice as the rereleases. (Except they’re paid for!)
Uncharted Seas was my first exposure to Spartan Games – I ordered some models as soon as I first became aware of them – one Orc Raiders, one Iron Dwarf and one Imperial Human fleet. Love the rules, love the miniatures – and am eager to get them on the table top.
These models were primed with white, then painted with a base coat of Vallejo Green Ochre. They were then washed thoroughly with a mix of GW Ogre Flesh and Devlan Mud. Then I detailed them with the GW Mechrite Red, Vallejo USA Uniform Green and PPP Jack Bone. The sails are also Mechrite Red and Jack Bone.
I don’t know why, but I’m not a big fan of naval games for specific eras – Napoleonics, WWI, etc. But for some reason, I can’t wait to put down the white cotton balls for the guns of these fantasy fleets!
