My main wargamging buddy and I are getting into a game called Imperial Skies.  It's kind of a Steam Punk game about Battleships and also smaller ship that fly.

 

I've got a French fleet and a Austro-Hungarian fleet.  Below are the test models I used for working out a color scheme.  Eventually they will be on telescoping stands.

Having worked that out schemes I've started on a flotilla of French ships:

 

Nightmare black on the hulls, NMM Gold Highlight and Solid white on the superstructures.  Hmmmm, I think I messed up and the NMM Gold was supposed to be a highlight

Applied Driftwood Brown to the decks and put a GW Yellow wash on the yellow superstructure.   That seemed to make them even more yellow.  Hmmmmm.

BTW all the centerline guns on the battleships are magnetized so they turn.  More later.

Looking good.  Speaking of magnetizing things, I'm thinking about starting to incorporate them into my 3d printed designs - any good resources that you know of about choosing sizes/types?

      36" from tip to props, The Rim Greaper is a VSF/Steampunk Victorian SciFi flying ironclad ship built from a plastic aircraft carrier toy.
       
      In-universe, flight is achieved by electrically charging the Unobtanium plating on the hull, the arc cannons on deck work off the same principle, and the Aetheric Lance on the prow works because the Story Says It Does.
       
      She was comissioned by Her Majesty's Royal Navy, constructed by barrister-turned shipwright Sir Andrew St. George, and assisted by the local Mechanaether Guild.
       
      Construction took about three weeks of evenings, and painting took maybe five evenings. My son helped a great deal with the concepts and making sure it was a playable surface. The top comes off and attaches to the hull by magnets. The bridge fits inside the superstructure.
       
      The construction is detailed here:  http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?%2Ftopic%2F68075-sir-andrew-builds-an-aeronef%2F
