Boats from Games of War

I’m preparing for one of the scenarios in the Perilous Island campaign for Pulp Alley. It’s set in an Indonesian harbour so we will need ships and boats.
Jolly Boat
These are the first, a couple of small boats from Games of War. They are just £5 each which is a great price for the quality you get. I’m really happy with them.
Paints used:
Wood – Vallejo 843 Cork Brown
Red planks – Citadel Foundation Mechrite Red
Everything washed with Citadel Devlan Mud and heavily drybrushed with Cork Brown and then a lighter drybrush of 976 Buff
That was easy!

Sea Pup
I have also bought the Sea Dog #2 sailing ship and it’s bound to be painted shortly.
They are all 28mm or 1/56 scale. 
Update: the boats with occupants in my next post, to get an idea of their sizes.

    1. Well, you can't go wrong with these. I would like some oars, though. Will have scratchbuild those I guess.

    1. Of course not. With toy soldiers you don't need a reason. Toy soldiers is the reason.

  5. They look great - maybe you can add a shot with figures inside to see how many can fit?
