Ok so this was only a couple of days to complete but I am happy with the result

Pretty much Army Painter all the way on these

Step One – Primed all the ships with Uniform Grey

Step Two – Using Stone Golem applying 2-3 coats on the hulls of all the ships and then details on the deck including the bridge etc.

Step Three – Using Wolf Grey paint all of the deck and the tops of torpedo tubes etc, essentially anything facing upwards within reason.

Step Four – Using Dungeon Grey to paint anything metal like gun placements, tubing, doors, masts, tin helmets etc

Step Five – Using Hemp Rope to paint anything like ropes or canvas details

Step Six – Using Deep Blue to paint the uniforms on any men, then use Skeleton Bone to paint life jackets and Kobold Skin to paint hands and faces

Step Seven – Use Desert Yellow to paint lifeboats, rafts etc

Step Eight – Wash everything (avoid wood) in a 1:1 mix of Dark Tone and Mixing Medium

Step Nine – Wash wood with 1:1 mix of Strong Tone and Mixing Medium

Step Ten – At your discretion highlight where needed using the same colours as originally painted

Step Eleven – Using a sponge (very small) and Uniform Grey sponge lightly some scratches and markings along the hull and bridge.

This should give you within a day or 2 a fully painted fleet that easily passes the 3-foot tabletop test.

More work done tonight, smaller ships don’t seem to come with crew so much quicker to paint to a desktop level.
