Looking for: fisherman + small boat minis


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

I'm looking for a 28mm scale (or a little smaller maybe) small boat with someone fishing from in.  Small row-boat or a tad larger.  I've been through the Reaper site and haven't come up with anything yet.  My Google-fu hasn't yielded much luck either.

Toying with a diorama idea with the kraken and he needs a victim.  

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 Probably a bit too fancy on the prow, but you can get the boat from 02696: Charon in the Reaper Boneyard...

 

If you can find a mini of somebody in a sitting position that works for whatever boat you find, it shouldn't be too hard to use a piece of wire (and possibly some thread or thinner wire) to cobble together a fishing pole.

Thanks for the input folks.  

 

 

There is a retailer of things for model railroading that I buy most of my basing materials from, they are called scenic express, and they have all sorts of useful things....

Checked them out and their only boats are way too big.  Other cool stuff though!  Filed away for future reference.   ::D:

 

Found a couple options for the boat from Miniature Building Authority and Scotia Grendel Productions which require more research.  The Ainsty Castings one looks awesome too!  thanks Pingo!

 

Still looking for an appropriate sitting model as my sculpting skills are pretty minimal...

Actually Smeagol and Deagol in boat is an excisting miniature from the Mithril range.

Maybe you can still find it?

They have discontinued it but I may have found one on Ebay.  Thanks for the awesome suggestion. They're not fishing but it'll be much easier to fix that!

 

Renaissance Miniatures had a Kickstarter a while a go for pirate era town as well as ships. They had some smaller vessels. The boats were made out of wood.

Thank you for this!  Some very cool ideas.  I had briefly looked at their KS when it was active but passed.  Waiting for some of the newer stuff to hit their site. 

 

Fishermen? Maybe I'll try sculpting one.

Good luck!  :;):

      The Fisherman's Rest. You know the place. The smell of stale beer, sea salt, rum, and fish scales.
       

       
      "Evenin,' Old Billy! How be ye these days?"
       


      "Oh, I be well enough, exceptin' as how me fishin' trip t'other day went. Now listen, lads. 'Twere a fine calm sunny day and I were far from shore, a-castin line for snapper..."

       

       

       

       

       

       
      "Wow!"
      "Nay, lad, there's none in town who can catch a minnow and sell a grouper like Old Billy."


      "Nay, swear on me old mum's grave it happened! But if ye find that hard to swallow, ye might be ill-prepared for what came after..."
       

       

       

       

       


      *urp* "no, now I think on it, twere more like this, aye, that sounds better."
       

       
      "...but the long and the short of it, I never DID catch that snapper."
       

       
      "Okay, Bill, time for ye to get some cold water in you."

      Chronoscope Pulp Ship's Captain and Ship Hand. Had them painted up, and the shark, but didn't have a good story until a friend gave me one of the Juvenile Kraken mini.
      Between the shark's integral splash-base, the squid's splash-stand, and the Water Elemental, we got some good scenery!

      I had a lot of fun making the Fisherman's Rest backdrop, too. Old Barkeep has heard all of these yarns before.

      Dreadmere fishing boat, not much, but it will get you in the water:
       

       
      Captain Blackcrumb:
       

       
      Finally, Mariel Twinspar.  Did her as a speed paint at the con, cleaned her up a bit when I got home: 
       
      Before and after.....

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      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.
