Just picked up the Trumpeter 1/200 scale USS Hornet the other weekend, and the lower hull is one piece and it's about 4.5 feet long.  Whether or not Reaper would have access to the same manufacturer in China that Trumpeter uses, obviously I have no idea.  It's certainly going to be an expensive set of molds, that's for sure!  I suspect it'll get broken into quite a few sections.  I seriously doubt it'll be a 'pull out of box and play' option.

I honestly do not see much use for a "straight out of box" product. I'd much rather have it require assembly, so as to be easier to produce, modify, and make modular as well.

You know that ship is going to be a hit with historical miniature players as well. The first guy who runs a serious naval campaign who shows up with that at a con will be a hero.

Youngster.

I started in college [after 6 years active duty in the US Navy] with White Box and self ablating dice.

GEM :lol:

Counting Heroquest I started when I was 6! :lol:

 

Our kiddo doesn't have long before she gets her own, non plushie, dice. She already has three full sets of stuffed polyhedral dice! ::P:

 

Gawd, I never realized how fast children grow up.

Hubby thinks it would be good to have two of these. Just in case for ship to ship battles :rolleyes:

 

i mean, anything else of this size for the cost is going to be a pain in the tushy to put together. I’ve seen those kits. They’re more obnoxious looking than the barge decor.

Both of us want two ships, so that means we need four, right?

 

Purple, but a very reluctant purple. It is so EASY to picture all of us crawling around the floor, playing with our toy boats. Me, Grump, BD, Jon, Julie, and Trouble. All of us going Boom! Boom! Boom! ::D:

Wherever one makes room for it.  Hubby said he has no interest already, but I want it... And crewed by otters! 

 

Amazing what an airbrush can do - the CAV dropship was airbrushed by someone over the course of a weekend, for example. 

 

Something that gorgeous?  Oh yeah, room will be made for such a beauty! 

 

This and the CAV dropship.... Which will we get first, ooooooooooh... :p /ghost noises

 

A dire otter! 

 

Name the otter crewed ship The Brandy Tree.

Good luck finding a copy... I really liked that version too. 

I take it back... apparently it's only $9 on the big river?? I went looking for it years ago, and the only copies were stupid expensive. Woohoo!!

*clicks add to order*

 

Ours is in a paper slip cover, we got it from Family Dollar.

 

It was hard to find, not to buy, we had it slipped between two DVDs and couldn't FIND it! Then I pulled out Muppet Treasure Island, and there it was.

 

Muppet Treasure Island is ALSO wonderful! :lol:

 

We have four versions of Treasure Island, and only Muppet Treasure Island was originally mine. We have  a LOT of pirate movies.

On the topic of rear guns on the frigate, now that we are seeing other packs of naval usable cannon from other sources, it will not be hard at all to upgrade the firepower.

@PaganMegan check out the rules for Lego Pirate Ships for combat, they were build your own and very fun games.

That’s an average of about $130 per pledger, if I haven’t slipped a decimal place on my trusty slide rule. :poke:  So there’s plenty of scope for increase of pledge amounts as well as pledge numbers.

I'm only in for the core box amount right now.  Got a couple of other KS going right now so it's looking like an expensive month.  Much as I'd like to up it, it'll probably wait till later in the PM for that.

      About
      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.
      First Legion Historical
      First Legion Fantasy
      First Legion Facebook
      First Legion Instagram  
      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      About
      -Hi everyone, this time I propose you a Fishing Village:
      5 Houses   7 Footbridges  1 Bridge -A few years ago I did something similar for video games 
      here you can see the video: and I've thought of creating models suitable for 3D printing.
      -The models are in scale for 28 mm miniatures and are divided into components to be assembled without glue only joints.
      -Doors, windows, nets and winches are printed separately.
      -Each house is playable inside, with working doors and on the ground floor there is a fireplace with the pipeline out.
      -The prints you see below have been made with an Ender 3, layer 0.2 mm, infill 5%, Pla Geetech white, the models have been designed to have as few supports as possible, I printed them with an overhang of 80 ° -85 °, support Z distance 0,3 mm.
      -I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 20x20x20 cm (for this scale).
      -Paint with cans and acrylic colors.
      -Each house needs about 500-800 grams of filament.
      -I put hooks scattered on the houses to attach cordage or oil lamps 
      -I remind you that only digital models will be sent to you, NOT PHISICAL ONES.
      * Good fishing ... *
      By removing the base you can have houses for a land village.
