So here's Gallant with her default camo:

And here's Gallant with the 'special' Royal Navy camouflage purchasable from the arsenal for 40 sovereigns:

Bloody hell were WG even trying? All they did was use a different shade of green, made the turrets black, and shifted the shapes slightly. The bonuses are the same as the default camo too. It's thoroughly underwhelming and disappointing. Thumbs down from me for one.

Imho if you have a Gallant, don't make my mistake. Don't waste 40 sovereigns on this extremely lazy variation of the default camo. Use them for something more useful.

Wow. Just wow. Talk about mailing it in.... 

 

They darkened a few colours, changed the shape on the stern and the one where the H-59 is. 

Think about what kinda grade you'd get back in school for doing this much 'work' on a project.

Thanks for the heads' up, no wonder they didn't seem to advertise it anywhere else.

It's pretty unappealing in those colors.

Does the special camouflage have different stats?

Exactly the same. You can check it out in my sceenshots which show the camo bonuses.

Duh, I didn't click on the images and didn't notice you were mousing over the camouflage. That is crappy particularly for a ship that comes with camouflage. Now if this was a permanent camouflage option for a regular tech tree ship this would be fine. I know I won't be buying it.

Wow... This reminds me of that meme:

Hey can I copy your work? Sure, just change a few things so it isn't recognizable.

Except in this case, totally failed in the "not recognizable" area of the request.

The texture artist in me is way beyond disappointed.

We know their skin artists are better than this, so it is dead obvious they gave this particular project to the intern fresh from coder school, who they thought ought to have a go at re-skinning a ship to get the "holistic game development experience."

LOL. I feel for the OP. It looks like the graphic artist phoned this in while on vacation 10 minutes before the deadline while having a massive hangover.

Thanks for sharing. I was curious to what extent it would be different from the existing Gallant camo; not much different. :fish_palm:

Mark my words: when the RN get a collection(that will presumably allow them to access modified color schemes as AMERICAN CRUISERS does for the USN ships) Gallant's modified color scheme for the new camo will be to change the colors in the new camo right back to the colors of the original.:Smile_sceptic:

Well I guess I can save 40 sovereigns now. I'm going to save them up and get Bert Dunkirk to put in my new Fiji instead.

It is pretty outrageous, the fact there was no preview so you couldn't actually see it is very misleading.

Thought it was odd that it wasn't even mentioned, but I had some sovereigns and was considering...  Thanks to this thread, I still have some sovereigns.

Yeah it is not worth wasting your sovereigns on for sure. Not sure what they were thinking, maybe it is something historical related but it does feel like someone just phoned it in.. 

IMHO they would have been better served by making a permanent version of the "Union Flag" camo for Gallant. That way players could show off a bit like the Stars and Stripes camo for the Texas. Really a missed opportunity for some real fun...

What boggles my mind is that someone at WG actually got paid for that.

In fairness I thought it was a mistake and just the icon for the original gallant camo being reused.

Baffling considering WG has so much time creating dozens of fugly, gaudy camos but they become lazy when it comes to historical camos.
