First small steps in my new modern project I've been experimenting with a new painting and basing style, so I only did a handful of units to test the water, if you'll excuse the pun.

The artificial light seems to have done all sorts of weird things: it washed out the blue of the sea, which is actually a dark Prussian blue, and has saturated the deck colours, which are actually a nice red-brown which matches well with Soviet era photos. It's also made them look like they've been gloss varnished, whereas in fact they're a nice matt! Ah, well.

First up is an Udaloy class destroyer.

Then an Oscar II I really enjoyed doing the sea base for this one.

And finally a Petya class. The surface units are not yet stuck to their bases, which is why the Petya seems to be doing some cool body-boarding move:

And the little flotilla ready for action:

Looking forward to getting some more painted up and getting some games in.

So, what scale are they and who made them? Also, what did you use for that red deck color?

Looking good!

Cheers – yep, they're Navwar 1/3000. The deck colour is Vallejo 'Cavalry Brown'
