Dystopian Wars Italians: Test Model

Spent some time last night painting the first of my League of Italian States ships. I went with the colours of Italian flag because ultimately I am entirely unoriginal:

Generally, I like what I’ve done with the hull, but am unhappy with the decking. It’s too dark and the detail is kind of lost because of this. I did not have any lighter browns to hand, so grabbed some Coat d’arms bone (colour 112) and some brown ink to have a go at making some pine:

I quite like this and will repaint the rest of the decking today. I also need to work out what to do with the rest of the ship.
