something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

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.)

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:

Ooh, I'd missed that!  Thanks!

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:

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.


      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
