My 1812/Napoleonic ships company is finally complete. These were great figures, but they've been sitting on the bench for so long that I can't remember the manufacturer. I did get most of them from Brigade Games and a few at Historicon last summer.
The bases are wood disks covered with yellow and blue sculpting putty, then scored to give the appearance of a ship's deck.
|Lieutenant and Midshipmen|
I do need to find a captain figure and another lieutenant to round out the wardroom.
All in all, these were fun to paint, although I don't know what I will do with them yet. Perhaps an Aubrey-Maturin game?
|The chinking completed, awaiting primer.|
The "stone" foundation and chimney are just blue 1 in. foam insulation sheeting, scored, and melted to give the impression of rough hewn stone blocks.
|The competed tavern...minus a signboard.|
The roof is just mat board cut and glued. Perhaps a bit out of scale, but it gives the impression of wood or slate depending on the paint. At least its less expensive than an embossed styrene sheet.
