Today I want to write about my Plutarch Destroyers for my COA naval force. To be frank, I haven't had a lot of success with these, simply because my opponent seems to be taken back by their 'aggressive form' and 'terrifying nature'. Well at least I like to think so!
The truth is they tend to get marked for destruction pretty early in the game - but they are one of my favorite units in the army, and I enjoy seeing them on the table.
So it was about high time I started painting them. A few posts back, when I was painting up the Diogenes frigates, I mentioned I wanted my small ships to reflect the paint scheme of fish. No different for the Plutarchs, but instead of a fish, I wanted them to look like orca killer whales! - or as close as possible.
The first step, as always, was a black undercoat, with Vallejo primer. I can't praise this stuff more. Not only is it a great primer but also works as a base coat!
Well that is all for now. Next week it is the turn of the Ptolemy bombers. Until then,
Farewell and good health,
