Yeah ... that's what I meant ... a pack of 36 cards dealt randomly to the six islands.

Re: Oldhammer AHOY!

Like the sound of all that Harry - the cards could work really well. In our last game at Foundry Paul used a deck from another game and made up rules for the equipment that was represented on them - worked really well with minimum effort!

It's a pity I'm only playing on the Sunday!

Spent a happy day chopping up my playmobil ship to shorten it so it fits the Giant's head better. I'm planning on having a large Goblin crew with various war machines - and to balance that out, each part of the ship and its crew will be taking animosity tests against each other so it'll be a wonder if anything gets done. Might see if I can rig up a crane so I can deploy war Tortoise Ajax as an armoured landing party...

Re: Oldhammer AHOY!

Yeah - not sure what my kids thought!

My 4 year old daughter thought I should be told off because I was breaking a toy until I explained I was making a new and better toy out of it! Hope they don't go off and experiment on their stuff - mind you I wouldn't be sorry to see the back of her Frozen doll - horrible looking thing! :lol:

Re: Oldhammer AHOY!

A mess mostly - needs sticking back together now!

I do have plans to extend both the fo'c'lse and the poop deck upwards to make it even more like Gilliams creation -

I'm also thinking about leaving the fo'c'sle open on top so it can house War Tortoise Ajax, with some kind of crane mechanism so he can lifted out and deployed as a landing party.

Those swivel guns might come in handy in an anti-aircraft role as well by the sounds of things...

Re: Oldhammer AHOY!

A bit of progress - shortened the hull and attached it to the head. Just waiting for the big lump of polyfilla holding it together to dry out now!
