Too much opportunity for mispronunciations with “t” replacements. :lol:

Only if you've met the skipper.

 

But it could be worse, it could be The Good Ship Venus. (*WARNING!* FILTHY, FILTHY SONG!)

 

*EDIT* Or De Vliegende Hollander

 

The Auld Grump - I'm the only tar what ever jumped ship from Van der Decken's crew,

And that's about the strangest thing that ever a man can do.

Ok, I've heard of the term "gravy boat" but this is getting outta hand.

 

 

 

There is a PDF ship that I am very fond of - but one of my friends printed it up, put shamrocks on the sails, and wore it as a hat. (He won a prize for it at an Irish pub on St. Patrick's Day.)

 

The PDF model is over twenty inches long, about two feet, including the bowsprit.

 

Nice as that PDF is, I am so lusting after this....

 

The Auld grump - She was schooner rigged and rakish,

With a long and lithesome hull,

When we flew the pretty colors,

Of the crossed bones and the skull....

Now we need a suitable sized KRAKEN.

L.O.T.S. demands this be made to happen in the name of equality of species.

GEM

Fortunately it is easy to create sea serpents of suitable size. (I am betting that either Pingo or Pingo's Husband is familiar with this documentary...)

 

The Auld Grump - yes, auld. ::P:

We have a new 7 Day painting challenge!

 

Nooo..... :wacko:

I haven't been painting that long so I haven't tried anything big yet.  I suppose that makes sense though.

 

Okay, well to be fair, I have practice painting very large things in a short period of time. For less-crazy individuals, probably a few weeks by hand, significantly less if one has an airbrush.

@OneBoot Can you msg me and tell me if they are making an astral dreadnought and a hecatonacheries. I doubt they ever would, at least for the latter , but still. 

 

No need to message, the 'pirate' ship was the only thing I was told about. Well that and the theme for one of the expansions that hasn't shown up yet, but shouldn't be a huge surprise when it drops.

He still hasn't delivered ::P:

 

 

I have to admit to laughing out loud when I read that. :lol:

I feel for @Buglips  and its ear-bristle brushes for the 1 week ship challenge.

 

@buglips*the*goblin has, as far as I know, officially retired from doing goblin challenges.

 

I, on the other hand, am considering this.

 

A little bit.

 

MAYBE.

 

It will largely depend on how expensive the thing ends up being, and whether I can convince MrBoot of the practicality of the thing.

 

Though we do have a lovely big fireplace mantle we could display it on... (don't plan on using the fireplace itself, so that's not a concern).

 

Huzzah!

Ship names... The Black Pearl is taken...  The grey carbuncle?

Sophie's Pride?

The Reaper?

The Wave Scythe

Reaper of Souls

 

I'm pretty sure there is a grim reaper on the bow, below the bowspirit.

Well, there's the ship everyone has been screaming for.  I just happened to remember Reaper Live was on, and stopped in the middle of making dinner to see if they'd revealed anything, and it popped up on screen. Wow!  Wonder how many parts that will come in. 

 

And.... folks on KS are already complaining that it will cost too much and they won't pledge for it after all.

Meh, in the update there are folks saying they want an Armada, in the main comments people are complaining.  IMHO, this is standard KS.

 

I am in for two

There is definitely a core group of malcontents on the KS page, hoping to get two ships one will be used as table top skirmish scenery in a post apocalyptic game we play regularly think I will mount it up on a frame and have it on land as a base

Im kinda thinking that same thing.

 

Yeah, me too.  I would have been all over one about half this size.  I can’t use this.  I’m a little disappointed, but hey, at least that something I’m not going to get.

I think the ship needs to be unnamed by Reaper. Keep it generic. Allow the owner to name it. 

 

This.

 

I don't want a distinctive figurehead; I don't want a carved name. I don't want skull finials. I don't want to have to take things off to get to the basic ship.

 

But for the packaging, call it whatever.

I can't believe it. They actually did it. Now, how many otter pirates will it take to properly handle "Sophie's Scourge"?

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      The KS is starting off with bases, and SG's unlock the terrain:

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture.
