Yeah, Stormstalkers thats what they are called. The sharks in the front are ugly and have to go, but perhaps they can be used somewhere else. I am contemplating a Stromfels temple somewhere, so they might come in handy.

The ships are easy to convert, simply remove everything thats ugly or out of scale, remove the little things on the top (the lego part things) and green stuff, or use planking of some kind (thats what I will primarely use), then change the masts if you like, I want them to be more to scale, so they will be replaced with either wood or plastic rod, same with the sails. I think I will use very fine linnen cloth, or plastic card, the thinnest version.
Cannons will be from som 28mm supplier, but I will go for the smaller more to scale ships cannons.

So, first part of three is ready for painting, houses will be added tomorrow, and we will try to fit them in for a permanent layout. We will give the board one more layer of spraypaint later today and then seal it off with some varnish, wich we will let dry until tomorrow.
The next step is to add the first water colour to the areas that will be covered in resin, then the stone work and cliffs will be drybrushed in various colours. After we have placed the houses, and decided that they have a good fit to the table layout, we will add ground work, sand and the like.
The final step will be to add details and final layers of water and ground colours.











The next part of the table, will be built slightly different, adding an additional layer of MDF, wich will serv as the top layer, where all the houses and such will be placed in a permanent pattern. This layer will be removable to allow for playing in the sewers, cellars and such underground areas. This area will have the most of the canal and merchant houses along with some storage buildings and a temple. The temple in it self will be kept rather generic and have a small graveyard. This to allow for different religions to be used within different gaming systems.

The third part will have be on a slope, to allow for the governors mansion and other "important" buildings.

Your plans sound ambitious, but judging from your progress and motivation, I have absolutely no doubt that the end results will look fantastic and even more excellent than the WIP-shots already do. thumbsup

The first layers of paint... lots of drybrushing and scribling is still needed, along with the ground work, trees and such.



I know that the blue of the water looks crazy, but I took the picture this evening in bad light, I will see if I can get some pics taken tomorrow, in better light and after we have added some different colours to the water.
The resin will not be poured on top of this until we have done all the painting and ground work.

Nice progress all around, thanks for keeping us up to date.

That is an impressively large cannon...should make an equally impressive hole in some unwary opponent's ship. Keep the COOL STUFF coming! What a Face

The harbour looks very, very nice! I'm tempted to get some molds for round Hirst blocks, they go so well with the other blocks.

The Cannon is vere well executed! Nice combination of GW bits and scratch built. Are you going to make more?

Here is another picture of Kalles cannon... the rope connecting the cannon is the one Kalle made him self.



The home bases, the players own islands, are not yet ready. They have only been cut out and a rough layout have been made for a few of them. I can tell you that there will be one Skull Island, one Pirate Cove and one Beach Paradise type.

Hmm the anchor is from a Megabloks pirate ship, some of the Pirates of the Carribean ones. I think I might have a spare one, that I could trade for a mini or something Smile

Tintin@The buildings look amazing. My compliments to the crew!

Hehe, thank you very much. Kalle just told me he would make 3 more, so I can use them in my future Warhammer army (I promised my son that I would start playing some Warhammer with him again).

That latest house is looking absolutely great.

How will you fit that and all the ships on the same gaming table? Rent Älvsjömässan (Stockholm fair)? :p

As to sail making I made one from a t-shirt and wood glue. Worked great to get a curved surface... that is until my GF placed a heavy book on it. pale

Hey tintin I dig the convertion and rigging of your cannons, I demand a scale shot. What material was used for the cartage it looks solid and what did you use for the turnbuckles...
