The Pirate Ship is now finished...

The Old Glory 8 Gun Barque is now finished... completing the Pirate army

I must admit to being quite pleased with it. Admittedly the rigging is a bit, well, jerry-rigged, but it does allow me to take the masts down for transport and storage - and it allows you to see the deck and crew very well too.

Lots more photos on my Facebook page

Great work there. How big is the barque, and what are the sails made of?

Madaxeman said...

Its almost exactly a foot long, and the sails I've made out of an old hankerchief soaked in thinned down brown ink, stiffened with diluted white glue.

TamsinP said...

The barque is a foot long? Oh heck, I've just ordered the man o' war!

Old hankie eh? Hope you washed it first! :)

Madaxeman said...

You're going to need a lot of crew! It comes with cannon, but if you need more I think in have some spares left

TamsinP said...

Yup, a lot of crew required. I should have enough guns thanks - I've ordered a lot more than I need for the FoG:R army.

Did you get my email about other pirate ranges?

Madaxeman said...

Nope... But the ranges are probably on the fogR wiki

Osprey Rules on Amazon

Broken Legions is a set of fantasy skirmish rules for a war unknown to history, fought in the shadows of the Roman Empire. Various factions recruit small warbands to fight in tight, scenario-driven battles that could secure the mystical power to defend or crush Rome. A points system allows factions to easily build a warband, and mercenaries and free agents may also be hired to bolster a force. Heroes and leaders may possess a range of skills, traits and magical abilities, but a henchman's blade can be just as sharp, and a campaign can see even the lowliest henchman become a hero of renown
