Spanish Fleet at Santiago de Cuba, 1898

After dredging up the Battle of Santiago BatRep from the archives, why not dredge up my Spanish ship collection from the bottom of the bay and give them a photo shoot?

The Spanish ships are all from old Houston Ship line of 1/1000 or 1/1100 metal models.  Most of these I completed years (really decades) ago.

The paint brush has not been raised in anger for a week while I have been in the other Washington (D.C.) attending a conference.  Hopefully, I can remedy that when I return.

  2. Good looking ships!

    When I attend a medical conference (which I avoid unless I have to due to the cost), I typically paint during breaks and in the evening - it helps that the course I like best is held at the Lancaster Host!


    It always amuses me when guys complain that the place is dump (which I think is patently untrue) - more than good enough for several hundred family physicians twice a year for 5 days,. if perhaps not for radiologists! :-)

    1. Thanks, Peter!

      When I travel for work, I typically bring hobby related stuff along with me. Usually, I confine the baggage to books or a ruleset or two and often material for a blog post. Rarely, do I pack up the painting kit but I do often bring along a game. Sometimes, even my 6mm Commands & Colors Ancients project gets put into the car!

    2. Agree, I have been traveling a great deal the past few years for my NG job. I find that a small packet of paints and some 6mm figs keeps my brain focused and my TDY money in my pocket!

  3. That's some nice-looking ships there, Jonathan!
    I wonder if you could add a little water effects gel to get those bases to life?

    1. Thomas, you are quite right! I should put in more effort in rebasing the ships.

    1. Thanks for your comments, Dean! I often feel that I have too many interests and collections. Very difficult to cull the herd when more keep joining!

  6. I can attest that these figs look great in person. The SAW naval games we played awhile back were great fun. (Mostly since you let me push the US Navy. Bully I say!)
