Games of War make lovely stuff - I bought a boat off him at the SELWG exhibition last October.

I have a few boats already, and had no intention of buying another  :engel:

He makes much of the mast joins and rigging himself in his workshop, and his enthusiasm for his stuff is so infectious.

I agree! Here is the Sea Dog with rigging:

This needs flagging up as a great resources thread - especially with Von Kurst's Pirates thread in the Skirmish Board

Oh yes, lets get more happening in this fantastic thread.

I wish my crafting skills were better then gluing some popsicle sticks together and calling it a raft.

Good to see the thread get a bump and to see Sharkbelly's fleet on one table.

That wreck will soon be appearing in our pirate games as well.  :::cheers:::

Makes me want to put more effort into my handful of ships, along with my pirates.

How much would you say you spend printing scenery Soth? My local library has set up a 3d printing lab and is dying to get people in to use it. I just don't know how much they'd appreciate me coming in with a file and printing it if it's a bit more costly.

What do you mean ?


How much I spend ? I have my own printer, so I just buy filament, pay electricity and do repairs/maintenance on the printer.

Between 20 and 40 € per kilo


Depends on the quality. I usually go for the middle road.

And how much would you say you use to make a medium-sized (maybe around 12" long) ship?

Thanks, I was talking about the filament and generally how much you'd say you 'spend' per project really. Like if you've got a kilo of material, how much of that goes into building a house or ship?

3d printer? Soth is the man to ask - he has 2, and I have seen them with my own eyes!
