Very nice - an unusual subject.

Living on an island group in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the inhabitants of the Woebetides are going to have plenty of use for ships and boats. My first larger vessel is this merchantman.

Image

It was originally a Spongebob Squarepants toy pirate ship. I waterlined it, removed lots of overscale parts, built up the quarterdeck from plastic card, decked it out with coffee stirrers and added masts from paintbrush handles and a chopstick! The ship's wheel and the anchors are from Games of War.

Rigging is a mixture of elastic thread and heavyweight linen sewing thread. It was a trade-off between strengthening the finished model and allowing easy access for figures.

I'm working on a large number of potential scenarios. Some will use ships merely as deployment points but I envisage the possibility of some manoeuvring and bombardment. Who knows, maybe even ship-to-ship combat!

Richard Phillips (aka Fieldsway Scenics Commission Painting) is also working on terrain items for the Woebetides. As I'm currently part way through building a Hindoo temple and don't have any new pics to show, I thought I'd share some of Richard's.

Below is a meeting area for Richard's Woebetideus of the Vulture tribe. Based on a CD with Scotia/Grendel benches, fire pit from gravel and a Chinese eBay palm tree:

Also from embay was Monkey tribe totem:

More to follow.

Thanks Richard C, hoping to make some progress on the hilltop village this week.

Cheers,
