Ok, so lately I've been playing Osprey's "Fighting Sail" game and making cardstock ships for it. I love the meditative aspects of making the ships and knowing each batch of 6 will take about 4 days from start to finish, and how I don't have to paint them when I'm done. Here are some in-game shots from several different games, and then a group shot: All ships are PDF kits from War Artisan. The ocean is 12" squares of cracked ice troffer lens available at Lowe's, backed with water-print fabric from Hobby Lobby. The bases are 1" strips of the same plastic, cut using the same techniques as work with stained glass. I chose to omit the halyards and backstays from the rigging as I am a gamer not a sailor, and I couldn't get the tension right on the three ships I tried.
