I still think I will name  my ship the HMS Walletbreaker.

 

Hmm, what if there is a small wreck in the depth expansion?

And I can see how the little boat from Bones IV might be useful to accompany this big ship.

 

Oh boy!

I need to paint more Pirates and Conquistadores soon.

Sorry, I don't know how to get rid of the quote, so I deleted it.

 

Looking at the ship, I do have one concern, and that is warping. I think if it's made in sections, that will keep that to a minimum on the hull, especially if they're not too big, but I can see the masts being problematic if they're in traditional Bones. Maybe they could use something like they did for Wyrm Gear's wings, that seems a little more Rigid?

I just measured the shelf that my still boxed Ma'al Drakar is on... It's only 30".... My dining room table is 46"... :blink: This is a really... really... really... big boat..

32 inches playable deck space. With significant unplayable length out to the figure head. Call it 35 inches between perpendiculars (which is one of the ways they measure the length of real ships). 35x5 (because an inch is five feet on gridded gaming space) = 175 feet. That is no boat. That is a ship. 

 

By the way, the real world constraint (due to the limits of real world timber) on the length of a wooden ship was about 250-260 feet. After that the keel started bending. (This was known as hogging.)

Look at it as an alternative gaming table..

I can think of ways to make this a gaming piece but they all involve a ballroom.

Gonna need a bigger shark....

If you felt like reading a book about a ship in this size and weight class, I recommend: CS Forester’s Hornblower and the Atropos.

 

The day that HMS Java  met USS Constitution both ships were carrying more guns than they were rated with on paper. Nominally it was 38 versus 44 guns. It was actually 46 against 54 guns. (With Constitution severely outgunning Java in either case.) But to get to the point, they used to rate ships by their principle weapons carried on the main gun deck. This Bones5 ship had nine heavy guns per side, so 18 total. 

 

You could consider her an 18 Gun sloop of war which is exactly what the fictional Atropos was. Sloop refers to the rigging: square rigged on three masts but a small ship is a sloop. 

 

Doug has the rating correct. 6th rate.

I agree.  I was trying to study the photo last night to see if I could see anything particularly "undead" about them.  All I could think was possible the eyes being a little more sunken, but it's hard to tell from the photo as most of their eyes are in shadow.

I got to see these greens at ReaperCon up close. They are undead. But they could be painted and modded to look like a particularly haggard batch of Frostgrave warriors.

I am hoping that is what they decide for the masts also. Not necessarily the whole ship but definitely the masts. 

 

That decision has not been made yet. That was stated very clearly in the stream broadcast. (But is worth repeating here, IMO.)

Okay, it looks to me that the Rune Wights are not "zombiefied", that they could be painted up as regular Vikings, does it appear like that from the renders to anyone else?

 

The archer looks a bit like my grandpa. He has less beard and looser skin but the muscles and the 'really old Viking' fit.

Well, perhaps I should actually pledge this weekend.  Hmm.  Maybe I should wait it until after all of the medical appointments this next week are done.  Then I'll be the guy who pushes us over a goal.

That ship is too big. Way too big. If they pull it off at a good price I'm gonna need two. I guess 2021 me is gonna have to sleep on a twin mattress to empty up some space.

The WK ship is listed as 30" overall, this one has 32" of deck space and is 37" overall it is also 2-3" wider

 

Gonna need a couple of little boats to hang off the sides of it

Is the ship bigger than wizkids ship?

The WizKids site claims 33" of length for the Falling Star, and I think only 27" of that is playable space. So... Reaper's is significantly larger.

 

But it won't include the magnetized masts, and I'm not sure whether it has access to the lower decks.

 

So, trade offs.

      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.

      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.
