Hello, I add my lates work in scale 1/700. She is Le Redoutable, a french ship of the line of 74 guns.

"The Redoutable was a Téméraire class 74-gun ship of the line of the French Navy. She took part in the battles of the French Revolutionary Wars in the Brest squadron, served in the Caribbean in 1803, and duelled with HMS Victory during the Battle of Trafalgar, killing Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson during the action. She sank in the storm that followed the battle." Wikipedia

I hope you like!

I do like! Beautiful!

Is that one of the new Warlord Games ships Julian? I love the crew – really brings the ship to life.

And do you have a link to any tutorials you have done? I'd be particularly interested in how you do your sea bases.

Cheers,

Nick

Beautiful work as always! The crew members really make the ship stand out.

It's not a Warlord Games ship, I think they haven't taken out the 74 guns yet.
It is a 1/700 scale Meridian ship, just like Warlord's.
I am making these sea bases the same way as those of the ships in 1/1200 scale but I add a layer of Vallejo brand water effect gel.
I add the link: link

If I have a little time I will try to do some tutorial, but I already tell you that I cannot promise you anything.

Are the sails the paper Meridian sails?

No, Meridian sails are brass sails.

Whitejamest, thank you for the comment.
