Dave Builds a Boat...well...a Galleon at any rate. (PIP41094)

Recommended Posts

Well, I've got my work cut out for me this time. I recently received my order from 6 Squared Studios so that I could base this big guy.

 

Speaking of which, I started with the base:

Then went on to assemble the dock, though I haven't added the twine yet:

After which I went to work on his legs:

Then finished them:

Next, it was on to his arms (which were deceptively simple):

And on to his upper body:

He'll be done in blues, like the rest of my Privateer warjacks, and I've picked up the Weathered Blues triad for it. There will be a good bit of steel, and a lot of brass.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here's a picture of a cute little crab, to hold you over until I get more done:

I would make him rusty ;D

 

He is looking great! So nice to see my cousin Crabby getting some love too!

 Oh, he's going to be a salty, old sea dog, all right.

Wow, the Galleon sure is a nice model! (in addition to having really nice rules ;) )

 

Nice work on him, promising base! :D

Yeah he is. The Hyperion, which I think is the smallest of the Colossals, measures about 140mm tall. This guy looks a little taller, but i haven't gotten Hyperion out to compare yet.

Okay, the tale of the Galleon continues.

 

Finished up his base:

Then popped pins in his feet and torso, and got him primed:

Then basecoated his legs with Weathered Navy:

Is he called a Galleon solely because he has a (vertical) row of guns?  He is an impressive clanky, stompy robot.

From Warmachine: Colossals (p126):

"The raw might of a naval ironhull now walks the lands of western Immoren as the Galleon. When unleashed upon a battlefield, the Galleon fires a rolling broadside comparable to that of a small ship of war. The colossal interrupts its deafening percussion only to reach out with its enormous cargo claw to toss a warjack like a rag doll or to use its massive trident to reel in resilient foes and finish them off at close range with a series of punishing blows. The Galleon commands a high price, but for those mercenaries who have the fortune to spend, it fights as a symbol of unquestionable affluence and might."

Alright. Here we are earlier today, with a 100% basecoat on the legs. It's Reaper Weathered Navy, P3 Pig Iron, and P3 Blighted Gold:

Then we wash in P3 Armor Wash, because other wise, that's a lot of blacklining:

Then we start to reclaim some areas:

And finish the reclamation process:

I put a second coat of water on the base, so we'll see how that turns out. Until next time!

Pingo's boat is still cooler  :upside:

 

Kidding of course, but since you borrowed the project name, I felt teasing was in order. That said, I am major impressed with this. I'm sure I would be too afraid to take on a project of that size.
