Well, the thing is, I'm still awaiting some pirates from Black Scorpion and want to test on whom the squirrel looks better. As soon as they arrive, I'll put Knuck-Knuck on some cool pirates shoulder and we will live a happy life on the high seas pirat

Yet another update on the ship

The front deck now got a rail, with a little hole for the cannon.



The poop deck is half done... unfortunately, I ran out of matches so I have to buy some new ones first until I can continue. The windows are made out of smaller matches. On the side facing the main deck, there will be two doors. One leading to the cabin, the other down into the hull.

The ship is looking good, Eliazar. Any plans on what she's going to be called?

In any case, great work - it's the sort of inspiration I need to build a ship as well. I've always wanted to...

Currently, she is called "Violet" due to the violet foam she's made of. I haven't decided on anything yet, as I didn't really think about it, either.

I think it's time for another update. I have been quite busy the last couple of weeks, so I only managed to get a bit of the ship done... Now there is only the main deck, a ram bow and parts of the mast missing (and the paint, of course...)

Actually, Violet's not a bad name - but you'd need another word. Maybe she could be called 'Violent Violet'. In any case, it's really shaping up well, and it looks like you've got most of the fiddly delicate stuff out of the way. Only planking on the main deck to do, really! Excellent work!

LOOKIN' GOOD! thumbsup

That REALLY is turning out nicely. WELL DONE!
I rather like the name "Violet" also. So far my ships all have girls names: the Nasty Nancy, Wicked Wanda, and Saucy Susan; it just seems appropriate to name ships after females. Suspect

Your ship is looking great. Clever thing to cover the foam with wood.

I agree! Violet is a great staring point for her name. I quite like Mindless Violet or maybe Violet Tendencies.
lol!

If you want to sail in less pun-infested waters how about something like Violet's Hope, Violet's Curse or Violet's Shame.

'Violent Tendencies' is excellent, Kurgan! Hilarious. What else is there? Let's see - 'Violet Cases', 'A History of Violets'. There must be more - surely the name is there somewhere!

Oooh.. neato! I'm trying to put together a Sartosa Campaign, PDFs and all. Would you mind having pics of your figures used in the "Painting/Modeling" guide? speaking of which, what's this Tutorial you mentioned?

Violet's a pretty good name, actually. I have to name my boat something... I might steal a joke from a friend of mine, who named a Wench character "Malaria", adding "We just picked her up in South America." 'Malaria' does sound like a girl's name, when you think about it.

Hey Styro... I really don't mind having the pics in the painting and modelling guide, on the contrary..! This might even get me to get on with all the painting and ship building...

After some search, I found the tutorial again. It's on the Games Workshop Australia website, here's the link:
http://oz.games-workshop.com/games/warhammer/gaming/boats/boat.htm

It might be advisable to save it, as I suppose this site will be eventually get the new look the US site already has, and who knows which, if any, articles will move...

Oh, and you have to post the link to your website here as well, as soon as it's up, now that the SG forum is currently unavailable.

Let me present the first painted member of the pirate crew!




EDIT: Upon posting, I noticed that I completely forgot about the straps holding the beard and the hair... be assured I will paint them, too Wink

Great paint job AND a terrific base. That IS one of Citadel's ABSOLUTELY best Dwarfs AND you did the Lad justice. WELL DONE! thumbsup

Toting that barrel makes him look like the ship's Morale Officer. Suspect

So, time for a little update... I finally managed to paint another miniature (I seem to be a really really really slow painter, unfortunately).

Let me present Captain Jack "Redbeard" Johnson:
