Password: Swordfish

The next ship leaves the harbor: Espadon (Swordfish).
As the hull and sails are all black, it was fast to paint it. The details in gold have good relieves, so it was easy to paint without messing the hull color.

The Dread and the Cursed

The Dreadfleet does his first appearance, and leading the bloodshed is the mischievous Cont Noctilus, in his ‘Naufrago’ (Shipwreck in English). I like the french name (Naufrageur) more them the English (Bloodreaver), and I translated it to Portuguese.
The Curse of Zandri.Joining joins the force of evil.
It took me 1,5 days to paint ‘Naufrago’, and about 3 hours the Curse of Zandri. I think that I paint the hardest ship first (Heldenhammer), so the others are going easier. I specially enjoyed painting ‘Naufrago’, because of all the different wreckages and components.
Curse of Zandri was fun to paint also, as it is very different from the others more ‘shipish’ ships.

Hammer of Vengence

The work in the shipyard finally shows its first prodigy: the ‘Martelo da Vingança’ (Hammer of Vengeance) is finally ready to set sails.
It took me five nights to finish it. I have to say that at the beginning, I hadn’t any pleasure from painting it (I started with the sails, witch took me 2,5 days), but at the end when the ship was taking color, I got very pleased.
I didn’t assembly it before painting, so I could take care of the bridge and the chapel.
I also painted a lot of little things before starting the Heldenhammer: the dragon from the Seadrake, the dwarf Zeppelin, the treasures, the sea monsters and all the others ships’ bases.
