  1. I was excited to get the Stygian Barge Add-On from the recent Bones 4 Kickstarter, and I was not disappointed in the model when it arrived. It is a truly beautiful and big ship. However, I didn't necessarily want to use the barge in all its Stygian glory; it looked more like a Necromancer's yacht than anything else. I wanted more of a plain everyday working barge. I figured a plain barge would have much more game use than one specifically decked out in death-related motifs. So, the first thing I set about doing was looking over the pieces to see just what removing all the skulls, etc. would involve. With a little effort it seems like it just might work. The main conversions were to lay a wood deck over the bone-strewn central deck, remove the decorative skeletons on the awning posts, and the vertebrate from the main roof beam. I also discarded the skeletal mermaid figurehead, and trimmed off most of the other decorative skulls. For the full conversion article, please see my blog: De-Necro-ing the Stygian Barge
  2. So I've been planning on a plug &play mast conversion. I just finished one of the 4l jugs of distilled water, so I cut it up for an approximate size test. Works for me. I will now try to even out those grooves to make a sail. Still trying to figure out HOW to duplicate the plug for the mast I don't think foamcore will be solid. Don't know how I would do it with putty/clay. Don't have tools to do it from end of dowel. My plan is to paint up the end and press it down on something to get the shape. After that I'm stumped. Ideas? This is for summer? September maybe? Later in the year anyway.
