I really like that, it's a good way to do a fire ship.

At my end I'm having a little delay as moving flat so stuff all over the place.

@Fuggit Khan: Thanks a lot! Nods to historical Mesopotamian influences is a must for the range. Maybe some shedu fresques could be squeezed onto some big ship?

@Grimstonefire: Thanks! No stress, we'll take it in gentle stride.

@Abecedar: Thank you!

@tjub: Tack så mycket!

@AtomTaylor: Thank you very much, it's appreciated!

@Forgefire: Tackar! I'm sure you'll handle the material fine. I've got some advice links that might be of help to speed up the learning curve once you start sculpting. Just say the word.




Some first casts, photos by caster. With any luck, escort ships might be up for sale by February:

Those ships look amazing!
Very professional casts, they look like they're made from high quality injection molds. I'm looking forward to adding them to my Man O' War fleet Cheers!

Wow that was quick!  I'm really impressed with the quality.

I'm going to be pressed for time up to mid feb, but I will keep chipping away when I can.

Those look quite amazing.  Been on a break from gaming and modeling for several weeks.  Will likely get back at it soon.  

I've been doing some test work in 3D modeling on the ship ideas.  I still need to sharpen my skills, but I will hopefully have something to post before too long.  Cheers JR

@Grimstonefire: Your persistence with the hobby in the face of everyday life's demands is quite strong. I know of few other hobbyists maintaining "the flame" so evenly for so long time. Looking forward to see your ships!

@Jackswift: Nice, this could be promising indeed. Good luck! I look forward to see what you come up with.

Thanks a lot, folks! Cheers!

@Axtklinge: Thank you very much! Takes Hat off

@Willmark: Indeed!


The escort vessels are available now.

Shading his eyes against the fiery glare below, captain Uhr-Maduknezhar stood astride up in the commanding archer tower of the slave galley Grasp of Lidunammu. The scarred and grizzled seaman observed the chaotic battle scene in the archipelago below while smoke columns obscured his view. He gripped one pointy merlon to counter the worst rockings of the crenellated tower as the frantic sea waves tossed the narrow ship about. The sounds of blackpowder blasts, creakingIn the accursed salty wet, debris and bodies both alive and dead littered the surroundings, picked at by bloodthirsty sharks and yet worse behemoths of the depths, some of them a danger to the unharmed vessels. The situation was difficult to assess, for behind the smoke, the flimsy wooden masts and sails of the enemy fleet had become an indecipherable tangle.

"Our fire ships shouldn't ever have let loose at such an angle," groaned decksofficer Bel-Ninridu, gesticulating madly at the unquenchable flames dancing across waves and wrecks below. "Just look at it! It's a bloody mess of firewalls down there, smokescreens shielding their escape. Gallows!"

Without glancing at his subordinate, Uhr-Marduknezhar replied: "Our metal hulls have passed through seas of molten rock. Our rams have licked the waves of hell.  What's a little flame to that?"

"With our ship unenchanted, without the preparatory rites, the rowers will perish at oars. We'll be stranded at great cost," said Bel-Ninridu.

"Then let the slaves broil and burn in their shackles if they wish to succumb to a little heat," said Uhr-Marduknezhar. "The roasted thralls will make for fine steaks. The omens are right, I am sure of it. Signal the helmsman, bring the
Grasp of Lidunammu about and aim her at the largest pillar of smoke, right there. Then signal the taskmaster: Breakneck speed, full ahead. The gods will it! And brace for impact."

"Aye, aye, cap'n!"

A Man o' War player has already asked for rules for our ships.

Are there anyone able and willing to make Man o' War rules for the small escort vessels? Rules for the upcoming big ships would be most appreciated as well, but we'll start with what we've got. The best case scenario would include ship cards.
