Painting 1:4800 ships

First experiment at 1:4800 napoleonic ships from Tumbling Dice. I bought them 2 years ago at Colors in Newbury and then forgot to have them.
 These are all 1st Class ships from the "Trafalgar Pack" and (as I did for the 1:2400) I painted them with yellow, red and pale sand sides. Even if they are quite small, there is some detail helping you in paiting them.
Next batch will be a dozen 74 guns. In my mind this scale could be OK for playing fleet actions (i.e. big naval battles) with my new rules.

  1. Did you every develop these fleets further? I'm torn between the utility (and price) of this scale vs the better detail at 1:2400
