Same here, but I'll find a way to hide/repair the missing parts

In the meantime, I started constructing a little something to use the book that came with the boat...

And two more smaller constructions...

The first started with a book coming from the MegaBlocks ship, which I gave a stand, so now Porto Pulpo has got it's very own 'Code'

And OK, I admit it, I was a wee bit inspirationless as far as the text went...

Barry trying to read the code :


And then I made a wrack, to compliment the gallows and the pillory (made from an old Gobbo Doom Diver)



And Barry checking out wether it is 'urty enough...

So, just like BoreasNL, I visited Crisis.
And just like him, my first stop (after the second-hand fair in my case) was at Thomarillion.

Only, my 'loot' turned out a wee bit different from his.

First off, this little cart drew my attention :



And when I saw this little boat, I just couldn't resist :




There's one more ziplock I bought from them...
But you guys'll just have to be patient until I've painted it lol!

Thanks!

Time to show the other ziplock-contents from Thomarillion :

A set of piggies, which I expanded with some piggies of another manufacturer (can't remember the name).

So I made them a nice pigsty, added a fishingnet and some posters and painted it all up.





And a size-comparison :

Really like the pigsty. It reminds me of my uncle's farm, although I doubt the net would survive very long on that fence. Pigs are next to goats on my list of will eat anything.

Last month I visited Warswaw in Poland.

Amongst the monuments on my sightseeing list was a brick 'n mortar shop that stocks Maxmini blisters...
And I bought myself a set of wooden crates.
In stead of painting them seperately, I decided to assemble them all on a base

They should provide some fine cover as well as being attractive additions to the scenery. The brushwork is OUTSTANDING; &, as a composite piece, the work together SPLENDIDLY. VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup

Your embellishments (base) really adds something special to the model. I love the corral & the donkey. VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup

Very nice addition to the original piece. I think the competition is a success bringing so many great pieces together (and so many with connections to this forum). thumbsup  thumbsup

Hey, how come I've been missing all these cool posts?!!!

Love that pigsty and pig models. I hope you can remember what the name of the manufacturer is, because myself and other people might want to get them too - no pressure! Smile

The rest of the work is also amazing. The TTW house deserves the detailed base you provided. I put a like on all of your Facebook pictures because the piece was so well-executed! Bases make houses less modular to play different games, but definitely add much more character and atmosphere. Well done!

Thanks!

And indeed, I mainly do these kind of things to get a 'living' feeling into my battlefields (the civilians have fled, of course) but the livestock can't go anywhere...

Speaking of civvies... stay tuned, because I've got another little side-project in mind for my Pirate collection (to be added to my Pirates, porto Pulpo and Deep Dwellers) : angry villagers.
No peaceful kiddies playing around, wenches carrying beer or women with clothes to-be-washed but something like angry butchers, kids with slingshots and whatnot representing the inhabitants of Porto Pulpo who are fed up with their village getting ransacked every time I decide to play a game  Laughing

Sure as sure.
The piggies are from Redoubt Enterprises and Thomarillion

I was rummaging around in ye ole bitzboxes the other day, looking for interesting stuff to use on my pirate ship.
All of a sudden I found another one of those old gobbo doom divers.

Nice surprise indeed, and I immediately started looking for the necessary bitz to turn it into a second wrack.

Here is how that turned out :
