Are they Buzzer Squigs that love flesh of any variety or - heaven forbid - the equivalent of woodworm or roids? :shock:

Mine are mines.... They're like puffballs, so light they float. If they hit a ship/island/giant they'll explode and just leave a nasty stain, but if they land in the sea they'll take a chomp out of any ship that gets within gnashing range. :)

Wow - very coo! Love the Egyptian statuette in particular!

Looks like great minds think alike in terms of crew though! I'll be using my horned Ogre shaman(?) as Winston the ogre from Time Bandits and whilst the landing party will be made up of 4A's marvellous Goblins, I do have a set of those pirate Goblins to make up the true seamen of the company (cue seaman jokes... ;) )

Re: Oldhammer AHOY!

Another wow from me, that's one big nasty ship, with a terrific back-story - certainly won't want to meet that on a dark night! :lol:

Now inspired to return to my initial idea of airships/balloons and mines! :twisted:

They're lovely minis. They were a gift from Treps as a prize for winning the first ever (of two?) Golden Gobbo way back in 2012. They took a little under three years to plough across the channel- caught in storms, fighting off giant squids (or normal sized squids) and generally pillaging their way around the coast, but true to their word they did sail into Bristol harbour and were immediately press-ganged into service!

Hope it comes out half as good as everyone else's.

Good man! Making from scratch earns you at least a dozen victory points ahead of any game... ;)

Re: Oldhammer AHOY!

Fimm - I think mine had a similarly epic journey too ;)

Nice one Erny - left a comment on your blog but as Fimm said - impressive scratch-build!

Here's a bit more progress on my ship - I've got a back story and name ready but I'm waiting for the official launch before I share it!

There's a longwinded account of my travails on the blog should you be interested - http://teasgettingcold.blogspot.co.uk/2 ... -beam.html

I should be able to manage gameplay on 4 levels with my cunning construction of each deck!

Next up - the Giant will be putting on a few pounds :lol:
