This might be a useful link: Incomplete Fictional Ship Name List


I have labeled it incomplete because it only listed one of the two named ships from Narnia. But it is a good long list. 


(Huh.  "The Black Freighter" is from the song "Pirate Jenny" from "The Threepenny Opera", the second most famous song in that opera after "Mack the Knife".  That's where Alan Moore got it from to put into "Watchmen".  


Sometimes I wish the comic book parts of Wikipedia showed awareness of anything beyond comic books.)


The Lady Stern


Stallion's Bane

The Kindly One

Well, these were both used in RPGs I played in...


In Firefly- "The Second Hand Lady"

In Star Wars - "The Second Star"


In D&D we had a ship called "The Sum of Honor" but I think it was taken from a 7th Sea Book.

I personally am not a fan of "Red Lion" since that makes me think of "The legend of Zelda: Windwaker" and that chintzy little sailboat King of the Red Lions

Wait... Wait... Wait... Who sank Pope Bryan's original ship?!?!

Well maybe it ought** to be either:


Pope Bryan's Retribution

Pope Bryan's Wrath


 With the Escort Sloops (sister ships):


Purple Polly

Tanya Teal



**there were several good alternative suggestions incorporating 'Revenge' further up the thread...

      EDIT: Kickstarter is now Live!
      "Hi everyone, we are back - and with a brand new Kickstarter!
      Later this week we are launching a Kickstarter featuring Viking and Anglo-Saxon ships, buildings and accessories - and we wanted to get the word out.

      Yes...more ships! During the Kickstarter we'll be making some of our older ships and popular models available for a limited time as well as the new ones. Same designs - but now unpainted.
      To recap on our history: Last year we closed up our webstore and decided to pretty much quit making models. But after some thought we came up with the idea for a "Model of the Month" (MoTM) - evolve to go forward! Each month we make a brand new model available for purchase - we take orders, build and ship exactly that number, then "retire" the kit and move on to something else on the next month.
      We have been slowly building up customers and getting the word out there. Some models did better than others but what was clear to us was that we still enjoyed making models, just at a more relaxed pace. Only doing one model a month was way more enjoyable and because we could mass-produce more efficiently - it's also a better business model for us.
      Renaissance Miniatures has never been our bread and butter. We do okay on Model-of-the-Month and Kickstarters but the webstore was always more pain than gain.
      Then came our small Viking ship as one of our MoTM offerings. Vikings was a genre we had never done before but our ship models are always a favorite of customers. So, rather than spinning them out over months - lo and behold: A new Kickstarter featuring what a lot of people know us for..ships!

      The Model of the Month is on hold right now while we get the Kickstarter running - but it'll start up again in a couple of months. But for now, the Viking Kickstarter is the main priority. Getting the models made and sent out to backers as quickly as possible.
      So please join us next week and follow along. Give us some feedback and lets make this fun again. We love talking with you guys. And we love having our models be involved with your enjoyment of tabletop gaming. Now....lets play!
      If all goes well, we'll launch the new Kickstarter on the 9th (this coming Friday)"

      So, a looooooong time ago, I painted this as a gift to my then-girlfriend (now wife), known to a few around here as Nissiana:

      Then the 54mm "Master Series" came out. Nissiana picked up the Monique DeNoir figure and painted a stellar monochrome version as a gift for me. Around the same time (shortly after the model was released, so early 2008), I picked up the 54mm counterpart of the above figure, Maria Roseblade. I intended at the time to paint her as a gift to Nissiana...and I started painting her. Got a few basecoats, even. Then, other projects for games, contests, etc. cropped up and Maria was sidelined. It's been a running joke ever since, as Nissiana knows about the intended gift.
      So, before mid-March 2018, I want to finish this up.
      Here's where we are:

      I want to follow the oxblood leather/blue top ideas of the original figure, but the light blue piping is getting replaced with ivory lace. I'm also happy with where I left a lot of the skin, so I don't need to repaint much. But there's plenty left to do!

      The white patch on her thigh is greystuff, required for some gap filling.
      Here we go!

      Time to get the crew together, starting with the Heritor and Warden!

      Tonight was all about cleaning flash and mold lines, and there was a fair bit to do on both of these ladies. Also the Heritors swords were both really bent. They'll both be cut from their bases tomorrow and attached to new textured bases that all of the crew will be using.

      More on that tomorrow!

      So today I got my "Pirates" set from Antediluvian Miniatures. Nine days, transatlantic. The set consists of "pirates" who could conceivably be painted to somewhat resemble Inigo Montoya, Fezzik, Vizzini, and the Man in Black, aka Westley the Barn Boy, aka the Dread Pirate Roberts.

      They sit on my workbench, the primer drying. And while I thought to myself, "These figures will make fine NPCs and guest stars, as well as wonderful showpieces," I also find myself thinking, "It's a durn shame they couldn't have stuck Princess Buttercup in there. And Prince Humperdinck, while I'm thinking about it. And what about the Six Fingered Man? Hell, and Miracle Max? And his wife?"

      And so, while I wait for the primer to dry, I ask the Group Mind: What figures, from what manufacturers, would be convincing doubles for:

      *Princess Buttercup
      *Prince Humperdinck
      *The Six Fingered Man
      *Miracle Max
      *Max's wife?
