No, not yet. Saw mention of that on Facebook as they get used to the less insane kits first. "Soon", though.

Looking forward to the more insane kit that he is currently working on.... That Sloop of War is gorgeous.

The Auld Grump, and by some odd coincidence I am looking at Razor Coast for my Pathfinder game....

I got 3 TRVs earlier in the year. Great kit, delighted with it! Any progress on the heavier variants you were designing. If so, when can we expect them? Thanks

Hi,

I'm looking at your Battlegrounds set as a possible solution for an Adeptus Titanicus table. Do you have any plans for more Battlegrounds and have you considered making one at AT scale that would even work with the modular buildings GW sells?

FW is releasing their resin 2x2 boards for a crazy price so I think there will be a market for more of these types of modular Battlegrounds sets.

Thanks!

Love the idea of a 28mm scale sloop - but looks really complicated - how easy / difficult is it for a very ametuer modeller to build?

The instructions are pretty comprehensive, and can be downloaded from the webpage.

We also have a couple of smaller boats that will be released shortly that have been designed using the same techniques, perfect for try without the high cost.



32' Pinnace.

They should be approx. $35/ $45 AUD (armed and unarmed) respectively.

oh man... I love these kinds of boats. I have a 3'ish foot (simpler) model I built at least a decade ago (my cat knocked it over and snapped the bowsprit :( )

I'm going to have to grab these at some point. The Siren is up for pre-order, but will still go on the store as normal right?

They do look great - is that unpainted?

oh. Uhmm... I'm not sure. If you email directly I'm sure the boss can answer that.

They are an MDF and Card (and dowel and elastic and resin and eye-pin) kit. They will need painting.

Sorry I meant in the images shown is that painted or the unpainted version?

Speaking as an unaffiliated fan I’m going to guess those are painted pics. Having worked with laser cut mdf before you just don’t get that kind of uniform color on the edges and faces of parts without work, typically edges are extremely dark brown or black from the cutting process. Also there’s shading in recesses that aren’t just natural shadow, the color of the resin guns, and some slight splotches on the rear of the unarmed version just don’t seem right for unpainted.

Yes, Chaotic Mind is correct. The pictures are of painted samples.

Here's a couple of shots of the decks before and after...

We've extended the pre-order for another day, in case anyone wan't to take advantage of that.

In the meantime, here's some pictures of the builder proof model made by the Boss, to show that folks that are not me can actually build this thing.

Aw, man... now I got pinnace envy.

That small cannon-boat will be ordered as soon as it is released!!!

I will proudly build, paint and display it at my desk at work. (I work in the Navy... )
