I just realized that the figurehead is photoshopped in there... You can tell from the white aura around it, and how her foot starts to disappear.

Yeah I doubt they sculpted that sea around an unpainted model. All to givean impression and that's fine by me. I will be happy to paint it and crowd the deck with minis for display

The sea is real.  It's transparent blue plastic pulled off a pallet of stuff.

 

They mentioned the figurehead was attached with bluetack but the bluetack failed.  I suspect this picture was originally taken without the figurehead in place.

The "sea" around it would show white because of the angle they took the photo.  They did not have much of the transparent blue shrink wrap on the model.  If you look at he figurehead you can see the white line to the left of the broken gun.  Ron extended the shrink wrap to make a more convincing sea.  (My theory not from watching the photo being taken.)

Plastic is real (notice the "blue" in this case yellow tack on the bow.

I just got the first of 12(?) printable sky ships from a kickstarter and I had managed to talk myself out of this, but...  OMG the temptation...  I'd even just take the figurehead as a separate piece to paint up!

The figurehead and alternate figureheads are in the pledge manager as separate add-on/power ups, so you could just get it to paint up :devil:

these pictures almost convinced my wife we need a boat. 

and a display case to put it in. 

 

I had it in the "that's too big to store"  category but am now on the fence.

You have a fence? Problem solved, it can be displayed on top of that..

Fine fine I added the ship. Wrong for the time period and just so big, but it is a good price and if hubby ever wants a ship, now we will have one 

 

I can always just not put the cannons on, might help the time period thing a bit

I can truthfully say that as awesome and impressive as the Pirate Ship is, I'm not going to be picking one up. We just don't have space for it and I'd rather spend my money on more dragons and monsters to throw at my players. 

 

That said, I've already spent more in this kickstarter than in Bones 4 and I'm not finished by a long shot. I'm pretty sure that the ship and chronoscope are the only things that I'm not planning to buy as long as I don't run out of time/money. 

 

Edit: that sounds a bit grim, doesn't it? I meant time left in the Pledge Manager :lol:

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.
