I was just so excited about getting a chance to play some Uncharted Seas this past weekend that I speed painted my way through my Iron Dwarves starter miniatures. Certainly not an expert paint job, but more that adequate for me to play with. Just a few other ships to paint and I will have a complete fleet. Now to find more games.
If you are in the Houston area and play Uncharted Seas (or any of the other Spartan Miniatures games) give me a shout.
