Y'know, the more I look at it.... 

 

...The more I want to give the Catoblepas a top hat, a monocle, and a cane.  That's right, for some reason I want to turn a party killing monster into a dapper... Player killing thing... 

 

If you do this, I must insist on the addition of a a bow tie.

No sails or rigging for the ship

 

 

Good, they really are a pain in the neck for playability. 

 

They needed to decide of they were making a model ship, or a piece for gaming; so glad they are leaning towards the gaming side.

My problem with twitch is stuff staying on twitch instead of migrating over to youtube at some point. Getting news from the forum is great and all but work is becoming a thing again. Twitch is blocked at work, youtube is not.

Makes sense.

 

I’d kind of like optional shrouds for aesthetics, but even that is getting ambitious.

Let's see, 4-5 per gun, with at least 32 guns, plus ship rigged with probably 20 topotters per mast, plus marines, officers, carpenters, cook, ... and 20% more for illness and injuries.

 

Call it 250 or so.

 

Frigates were crowded.

 

You might not want to try to fit all of them on the model. ::D:

As many as six men per gun for the larger cannon - with 2 and 6 being the men that hauled on the ropes to bring the cannon back to the gunport after being loaded.

 

My son John was tall and slim,

And he had a leg for every limb.

But now he has no legs at all,

For he lost a race with a cannonball....

If there were little rings or something on the booms (horizontal beams, yeah?) then we could easily attach cloth sails ourselves and make it look half decent.

Well, you can leave it up to the buyer that way if they are dedicated enough to add them.

I'm sure it's entirely coincidence that not ten minutes after I post this youtube happens to contain both yesterday's Reaper Live and today's Bones 5 livestream :ph34r:

I figured if I wanted rigging and whatnot, I could add it myself. But yeah, I just seems like it would get in the way.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
