So I managed to pick up a copy of Dreadfleet second hand which I am very excited about. I remember when the game first came out I thought it looked awesome, but for whatever reason I never got it and then GW
swiftly killed it.
It seems in very good condition, the kids who owned it before me didn't seem to use it much I guess, many of the ships are still on the sprues, but many pieces are just flying about the inside of the box! Spent most of the last two hours organising the pieces, but did manage to build the two flagships. I must say I'm not a fan of the Bloody Reaver, all the sails don't line up very nicely at all despite my best efforts, but I am a huge fan of the Heldenhammer.
I think I plan to build all the components, then start the painting. I think I'll spend some time painting the ships individually, but the tokens, range rulers, and scenery Ill likely do very simply with a spray and drybrush.
As always, if anyone has any advice or criticisms along the way let me know! Anyway, here's some grey plastic.
