Miniatures from Dreadfleet boardgame
« on: July 28, 2023, 08:02:59 PM »
Hi all,

I got unassembled Dreadfleet game for Christmas 2021. I assembled everything right away and I'm slowly painting all of the pieces. I think I have 6 ships left and some tokens.

First of the terrain:

Nice crisp paintwork, what do you use them for?  Still playing Dreadfleet or running them for something else?  Mantic's version of Man O' War looked pretty cool.
2024 Painted Miniatures: 279

Bet you don't play it more than once........ :-[  'tis an effin awful game.
Which is a shame as the models are great and it could have been the successor to the far superior Man O'War.
In honesty you are better off hitting Sea of Claws, the iO group for Man O'War for rules.

I believe there is also a facebook group but I don't have any info.

Very cool. I always enjoyed Man O War, but never played Dreadfleet. It's nice to see the miniatures painted up.

I still haven't painted mine (no surprise there...). I like the crisp colour schemes, especially the castle, which looks so creepy with that restricted palette.  8)

I too have the entire game painted up, miniatures and terrain are superb, the game is a bit "meh" - sadly. Have not played it for several years but have no heart to sell it as the minis are just too cool...

These are quite nicely painted, maybe a bit of inspiration for me.
I was intending to use mine copy of the game to play Galleys & Galleons (with its fantasy supplement), but I've yet to get past priming the miniatures.

WOW so many comments :) Thank you all, I'm glad you like it.

The only time I ever had all of my minis painted was when I was still going to school - not making any money and painting whatever I got for Christmas or Birthday with my water color school paints  lol

And yeah the castle did turned out cool :)
