The life of a ship 3

The ship is painted, the sails are added and I am currently making stuff to put on the deck, such as bags and barrels. Then I'll add some crew and even a cannon. I haven't decided on wether to make the masts permanent or to allow to remove to make shipping (hee hee) of the model more easy. If I set the masts permanent I can add more detail in adding ropes all over the ship. Thoughts?

I'll bother to take better pictures when this thingy finally get ready. But I am very happy with her so far!

Long time no see...

Lack of inspiration, lots of important "real life" thingies and a minor alien abduction has put this blog on hold for a while. But here is a little update at last!

I got my greedy fingers on a very fine book, namely Hail Caesar from Warlord Games, and thus my favourite DBA armies are getting an overhaul with some fancy leaders for a starter, the pictures are quite bad, but the light is lousy today, and I want to get on with this blog unless it will slip back into coma again.
Anyhow, enter the ancient Germans:

They all fit in this extremely handy little box:

On the painting table is the leaders of my Teutonic Knights, and later my Marian Romans, but that army are still not painted so don't hold your breath.

Oh, and every serious(?) gamer needs a dice tower, right? Here is my, themed for warmachine, although you probably can't tell from this picture.

(sorry for the angle of the picture, blogger seems to be unable to show this the right way. Splendid blogger.)

Hmm, I hear a ship nearby...
