So very true. When I first started painting my aircraft I had to include decal roundels for the players to distinguish the pieces from one another. My naval units are painted mostly with a color scheme for playability except for the capital ships like the Carriers and popular Battleships. All of them have a decal or flag to show which nation they belong too. I actually replaced the OOB British Cruisers because I thought they looked too close in size with the destroyers. I ended up replacing with some ships I found on Shapeways. The biggest problem I had with naval units is that they can exist in the same seazone with enemy pieces unlike land territories. Because of this I decided to keep the subs, destroyers, cruisers and non unique battleships following a color scheme. There are so many colors in the spectrum though we should be able to come up with a solution that will make them look more historical yet keep the pattern or color scheme for the nation. I really would love to paint all the ships historically and maybe I will revisit them again someday. Every time I go back and repaint my pieces I seem to get better at it. Or at least I think I do, hehe.
This will be the last pictures until the end of the year.
The US EUROPEAN FORCES will be the next set that graces my map, followed by the GERMANS, but it will be awhile before the Axis can get on the board.
I hope you have enjoyed the pictures.
Until next time.
Over and out!
Thanks for the feedback guys, I hope by this weekend ill have some pics of the progress. Ill set up a few different border styles, all of which will be towards natural. I actually like the sea zones, so ill just keep that look… since ive also already recreated that look/layer anyway haha.
They look absolutely great SP.
I was admiring these when I spotted that the US set up misses the Szechwan and NW China Infantry and mistakenly has the G naval placements instead of the US. Not checked the rest so you may want to do so.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!
Oh, I could look at these all day.
––Glad you liked them
I really need to get back to painting my stuff.
––I hope so!..as I really enjoy seeing YOUR NICE PAINTJOBS!
