Scratch build Boxer pirate ship

Scratch build Boxer pirate ship

Just messing around really, never made a ship of this size before (28mm) so i thought i would start with a prototype and once i have cracked it then i will create another two, so far its looking ok, need to add more paint and weather it then create those great sails they have.

Going to get Boxer artillery guns and get the figures for the crew from Redoubt miniatures which i think are the best around, they are chunky and those figures with the jingal i can just see them rounding off a shot on that outer decking.

Anyway here is the pictures so far.

That's a good site - I love the tongue-in-cheek approach. Amusing.

Sails now fix with lash, weathering done and i put a 28mm miniature tigerman inside to give you the scale...i think a few more bits should be added, anchor ect..overall pretty please since i have never made a ship before...another two to make and a torpedo boat also.
