I’ve just finished painting up my first Empire of the Blazing Sun frigate, in my test colour scheme of red and white. Since my friend’s gone with mostly white, I went mostly red instead.
I’m not too sure about the dirtiness of the white – it does look a little too dirty to me, although that may just be on the smooth surface of the funnel – but apart from that I think it works. I’m thinking of going with red for the background of anywhere there are guns (so, broadsides and the tiny turret for this frigate), black for the (fuel?) tanks on the back, and white elsewhere.
Thoughts and comments anyone?
