Sea Dog 2 sailing ship from Games of War

The first bigger ship for my Indonesian pulp harbour. This is the Sea Dog 2 from Games of War and it will supplement the colonial steam river launch and sampans from Sarissa and small boats from Games of War. I still hope to receive a couple of bigger ships in time for the game.
It's a resin kit with wooden mast and bow-spit. It is painted just like the river launch. The stern is white and Citadel Foundation Mechrite Red. I might make a free-hand painting of something suitable, mermaid or whatever, sometime in the future. But at the moment that and a name for the ship have to wait. Too much stuff that needs to be done.
I had to scratch-build the tiller. Made from a chop-stick.
Great value at £18.

Evan Hughes who contributes to two blogs, Cannister & Grape and Die Kriege des Zobelshuts. The former is filled with lots of post raging from this to that, a very good mix of everything about miniatures games. Not a totally unheard of crew, by the way, as they are the ones making Wargame Blogger Quarterly free PDF-magazine. Well worth a read, both the magazine and the blog. The latter is a record of the wars between the imagi-nations Grand Duchy of Saxe-Coburn und Buchholz and the Principality of Velikye Byelgorodniya. Lots of tips and ideas if imagi-nation wars is your thing.
