Workbench - Kingdom of Britannia Naval Battlegroup - Green Hulls

Now that I have my colour scheme sorted for the KoB fleet, I've been airbrushing the green hulls. As stated on my last post, the colours used were all Vallejo Game Colors - 1:1 mix of Dark Green:Black, this was used as the initial even coat, on the areas that were to be green. Most of this colour will be covered in subsequent coats; it's mainly used to help build the transition of colour from black to green. Next further green was added to a 2:1 mix Dark Green:Black. Again, a nice even coat was used, though this time the deepest shaded areas were avoided to create some contrast. Finally pure Dark Green was applied in several coats. Each successive coat working towards a highlight point to make that more green and therefore stand out from the shaded areas. The highlights included the hull' prows, tops of the conical shapes (at the side of the hulls) and railing on the smaller minis. Below are a few pics.
