After my move to Berlin last week I searched for others players in the city and yesterday I played my first game: pirates using the rules of Triumph & Tragedy. Here are some photos:

Long ago there was a story in a Tarzan comic about a river tribe that used crocodile shaped dugouts to dominate the rival tribes. I've been looking for that comic to figure out a design for my Savage Orc's galleys. No need to look anymore. Thanks!

Nice! Looks like a great game. I love that there was actually a faction of mysterious little green guys, and of course Cthulhu! That is a great piece ("miniature" seems inappropriate in this case).

Looks great... i was wondering about creating a pirate warband.... and was thinking about what to use as ships...

As it is a side project... i don't really want to spent 100 euro's for a ship... and looked for cheap alternatives...

What do you guys think of these 2 options (Undead pirate warband ship & Caribean Pirates):
Undead
Caribbean Pirate Ship

I agree with Mo! These are too small for 28mm games.
There's a current thread about ships in the Scenery section of the forum, 2 actually. cianty also has a generous collection of resource links on his blog. The bottom line being go e-bay or build your own.

For a quick fix I suggest the Playmobil Pirate Dingy. Better size, convert-able or playable right out of the box and cheap.

The Weapons and Warriors ships pictured above are handy but I always convert them as they are quite small. Also they are an e-bay only item since the game has been off the shelves for years.

We've been playing with our smallest Warhammer ship for the last 2 years (3-4 inch wide, 8 to 10 inch long). Crowded but I like that look. Once a warband gets about 16 warriors it gets too crowded.

Mo,

the Ctulhu belongs to the shop (Battlefield Berlin) - I don't know who produces it.

For ship you should look for scales of at lease 1/56, preferably larger.. Or just go straight with tabletop ships - or have a look at this thread...

A-ha, I can be helpful!

That Cthulhu miniature is by Wizkids, from their Horrorclix game. Unfortunately the game was discontinued a few years back, but you can probably still get Cthulhu online somewhere, and unlike many pre-painted plastic minis he really does look excellent.
