I have started painting up my first fleet for Uncharted Seas, the deadly and mysterious Dragon Lords.  I thought about the color scheme for a long time, finally deciding that red, orange, and yellow sails would make the best contrast with a blue sea board.  According to the background fluff, these colors represent the Melkharn province where Fire Dragons are common.  So far I have finished the two squadrons of frigates from the starter fleet box.

 The picture mutes the blending of the colors on the sails, it's more pronounced when viewed directly.  I'm pretty happy with how these turned out and I'm starting in on the capital ships now.

I am slowly working up a force to use in Victorian Science Fiction games.  Or in this case, perhaps that last word should be "Fantasy," as the models are from Old Glory Miniatures Dwarf Britannia range.  I just completed a unit of dwarf light cavalry on ostriches, a 10 figure unit with an additional commanding officer.

Here's a close-up shot of the officer, brandishing a sword to distinguish him from the carbine-armed troopers.

I currently have enough infantry painted to make up two 14 man units, but my next step with these is to paint up the models to make three 10 man infantry units.
