African Princess...(1/35th scale...scratchbuilt)

Recommended Posts

That's a wonderfully intricate piece. I know its meant for display but it would be great for a pulp genre game.

 

@Catdancer. Is this similar to another boat you did? I'm sure I've seen this or one very close to it before, although I'm not sure if it was posted here or if I saw it through a link to your online gallery.

 

In any case. It's certainly worth taking a second look. ::D:

She is LOVELY. The SPLENDID modeling & brushwork with the level of details you lavished on the Lady give her a charm & personality all her own. OUTSTANDINGLY WELL DONE!

Again...thank you all for your comments and remarks.

 

Darsc...You have a very good memory. Yes, I built another (African Princess) that was used by varied military persona (who had retired from active duty status) who worked in varied areas of Africa as private security teams...In my time spent in country, I had many a ride on those craft in the hotter areas that I was doing photographic work in.

Darsc...I may have been mistaken; it is this boat you may have seen in the past...I posted it before on/in July of this year...I could not find a posting of the other boat that was used by (retired military) working in Africa.

Hibou...thank you for your comment on the model...In regard to the reptile photography; I am sorry to say that the magazine that I was working for picked up all my expenses plus paid me a very nice assignment fee; but in turn, they bought complete, total and exclusive photographic publication and usage rights. I have a number of my own old photographs but am not at liberty to show/publish them...including on the electronic media...Sorry.

That sounds like the best way to do it, Catdancer. Live the adventure on some one else's dime. Sure beats shooting weddings.

Hibou...That is something I never did do...never shot weddings, graduations, school photos and other such related areas...Are you in the photographic profession yourself?

      So my Husband needs a boat for his 4E campaign. It unfortunately cannot wait until Bones 5 delivers so I bought a paper craft boat from World Works Games. It's called The Maiden. It's HUGE. Photo from the website in spoiler. In the photo you can see a few minis placed on it for scale. 
       
       
       
      Like I said HUGE. I've done some other paper craft boats before but nothing like this. I'll be using foamcore for the base of the decks but the rest of it is card stock, transparency paper, and Uhu glue(the glue stick not the liquid-y stuff). I'm not yet sure which figurehead and props I will be using. I may just make them all and let Husband decide what he wants/needs after that.
       
      Thankfully, this thing comes with pretty detailed instructions so it shouldn't be...not sure hard is the word I want but it's the one I'm going to use. So it shouldn't be hard, it's just up to my skill to cut, glue, and (most importantly) follow directions. It will take lots of time though I am sure of that.

      As my players are going to be floating around the Darklake in the Underdark for the next few sessions, after drawing it the first night, I thought about trying to build it instead.  We use the grid and my players floundered when we tried to do away with it so trying different ways to incorporate it into the build. 
       
      Playing with wood texture.  My one cut was horrible and it ripped more than it cut. 

       
      Used chipboard templates to guide the curved cuts. 

       
      2 different grid options on the front and back.   Like the front but it’s a bit more confusing than just using the “nail holes”.  Will see how the middle goes. 

       
      Thanks for looking.

      So my daughter just had her first birthday a couple weeks ago and while plenty of people showed up we did end up bringing home a lot of leftovers, dessert in particular. We had about a quarter of a sheet cake and a few cupcakes too. Those cupcakes in particular though had a little something extra, topping each one was a plastic ring. Well I have to admit I couldn't help myself and the wheels started turning.
       
      After maybe a couple hours from start to finish my "Fabulous" guardsmen" now have a "Fabulous" barricade/firing line. With its very large coverage I think this piece may be better suited to Killteam than 40K though.

      Here is our current adventuring party for Iron Kingdoms.  We started a new campaign shortly after Reapercon, so I was able to make use of several of the convention minis.
      This party is quite an odd mix of races.  Lately, I've been quite fond of having a semi-cohesive color pallet for our adventuring parties.  The last one I did was all in cold blues, so with this one I went for a very warm pallet.
       
      Lil is an investigator who 'secretly' is a Thamar Advocate.  She's just the stock mini of the vampire hunter from Reapercon (by Bob Ridolfi)


      This Pygmie Troll is very fond of hitting things and also alcohol.  He was made by resculpting the head and hands from the Jason Weibe's Dwarf Brewmaster (07015)


      Our resident Bone Grinder was made from Bobby Jackson's River Widow (03913).  I only made superficial changes to her (adding a few extra bone-grindy items to her belt).
      ]
       
      For our Trollkin Axe Flinger, it turns out that we already had the perfect mini.  This is the version from the Undercity Board Game.


      This Outcast Skorne Bushwacker/Warlock was made by simply head swapping a Malifaux rifleman.


      This Lazy Cyclopes (under the command of the Warlock) was a sculpt that I made quite a few years ago.  I showed it off to several sculptors at Gencon, and they all gave me some pointers on things that I could improve on.  Still, I was fond enough of him that I decided to paint him up.
