Back Again. We have a bunch o' releases incoming, Which I'm not allowed to talk about.

So, in the meantime, I'm designing a boat. There is no ETA for this, but it is progressing nicely.







The Boss has allowed me to do a full on build-log too, which is on our Facepage.

*Blink* You have a Charlie Noble on the ship!

The Auld Grump - for reasons beyond my comprehension, the ship's stove was called a Charlie Noble.

To be totally pedantic, the Charlie Noble was just the Chimney bit.

Anyhoo, nearly ready to take apart for cutting.





about 700mm (27.5") long (not including bowsprit) and nearly 7" wide.

I could have said 'flue', but wasn't sure people would get it. *EDIT* Because no one wants to get the flue. Uhm... I'll see myself out, now....

Being sent to 'Take a letter to Charlie Noble' was a bit like being sent to find a left handed spanner.

And, for some reason, now I want to reread Liverpool Garge....

*EDIT* I will be running Razor Coast for some kids next year, I am sorely tempted to use those 'pencil sketches' for illos.

I've been trying to figure out her class - too small and undergunned to be a normal frigate... some kind of armed merchantman?

Though she does not look to have much cargo hold.

Upgunned East Indiaman? Small, valuable cargoes shipped fast?

Blackwall frigate?

She's what would have been known as a Sloop of War. Swan Class. Small, capable ships that were not quite big enough to be a sixth rate (20 guns or more). Though the extra carronades would have brought her up to twenty. Nominal crew of 125 and 300 tons with a length of 29 meters at the gundeck.

Nice. I had a suspicion that she was based on a real hull. Nice clean lines.

Hard to recognize a sloop without seeing the rigging.

Freakin' gorgeous.

*EDIT* Blackwall Frigate - 1853

Despite the name, they were armed merchantmen, not ships of the line.

Actually, despite being called sloops of war, they were ship rigged. Bit of a misnomer, really.


anyhoo, laid out most of the parts for the hull.

Have you considered selling the 'pencil sketches' on RPGNow?

Some would be excellent for people that need clip art for a pirates game. (It is possible that I have snatched the ones that you have shown here, for exactly that (unpublished) purpose.)

As a publisher's resource, they would be quite handy.

Awesome news. Always been hard to justify ordering from you without doing quite a large order. Though always did enjoy, being on the west coast, that I got shipments from you 2 days after you mailed them out.

Not only that, but I see the site they are selling through has a bunch of other designers' cool MDF stuff too.
