I have recently acquired the splendid Tumbling Dice line for the actions on Lake Tanganyika, as well as David Manley's Steamer Wars, but have run into a bit of trouble determining an appropriate or approximate paint scheme. Any suggestions or color pictures of models would be greatly appreciated.

White most likely. Tropical heat made it a necessity. With a little rust thrown in.

Here are my ships and 3mm figures.
