Well, that pirate ship is a must buy for me. I was sure that I could skip this one... Then they had to go and make a giant pirate ship.

It's called DeepWars by AntiMatter Games - give it a shot, it's a lot of fun!

I'll be picking up this model to use as terrain there, for certain!

I saw a comment to the effect of 36" and 10 pounds in weight. Not sure if those are official numbers or a guess.

I'll second the call for people to check out Deep Wars. Not only is it entirely underwater, but its sister game ShadowSea deals with all the ground based above water combat. A lot of models have crossover use from both games and that boat can certainly be used in both (as their core rules are both based on Song of Blades & Heroes). Plenty of rules for boarding and breaching vessels...

There's new two player starter sets with everything you need and a dungeon crawling supplement will be getting released in the near future.

Deepwars/shadow seas is about to have another kickstarter with 3d printing files for a lot of what you need too. And they should have out a fairly cheap dungeon crawl game out soon you can use all the bones minis with.

I literally thought that company was “Dead in the water” when Miniaturemarket stopped carrying them and hadn’t seen any news about it. I’ll check out the link as making an ocean themed table is intriguing.

I wouldn't put a lot of weight behind what MM carries. It's not the first time they've stocked and dumped a smaller line.

Antimatter has been doing regular kickstarters and putting out a fair bit of material every time. Their submersibles were quite nice, big, chunky modeling projects.
That deep sea expansion is a great reason to finally finish off my Fortune Hunters submarine!

Makes me want to play a tabletop deep sea exploration game like the old Treasures of the Deep PS1 game.

Deepwars is what you want. This terrain, and the underwater figures that they have here work to put together a excellent table. The $ 10.00 spent down at your local Pet store in the fish section works wonders! That ship alone would be a great centerpiece deep wreck for crews to explore and fight around. Add in a couple of caves, and some plants and gravel, and you have yourself a hazardous lost location.

To join the chorus, yes, Deep Wars and Shadow Sea are fantastic. The miniatures are ridiculously flavorful and easy to build/paint. Looking forward to getting the minis from the last KS, but since I tend towards ordering everything they make it takes a while...

I may need to look closer at that ship.

Ah! Thanks.

But I think you mean that a Generic Spider Goddess has demonic fungus with No Specific Name. After all anything else would be a copyright violation

The internet goddess LOL-th?

I have been painting a lot of the Bones Black minis that came with Bones IV - and good gravy, does the material make a difference!

More rigid, easier to prime, faces and hands that look like faces and hands!

A massive improvement!

The one thing it gives up is the nigh indestructible nature of the old Bones - which means that my old flexible Bones will remain in use for my games for younger players.

A lot of the Core for Bones V will also be in Bones Black, which is a good thing.

The Auld Grump - I am really wishing I had gotten another Dreadmere set while the Pledge manager for Bones IV was still active.... I painted the last of them last night.

The downside of having a wife that also games. (Who am I kidding - there is no downside! You have no idea how happy it makes me when I find that minis have wandered over from my side of the table to hers!)

On the other hand, the ship(s?) will be all mine.

Here's a picture of one of the Giant Jailers in a game with other generic 28mm style fantasy minis from Reaper/Mantic, etc. Can't speak to the others. This guys is on a (slightly small) 45-50mm base I cut up.

I LOVE that the second part of the Greek Expansion has not only the Cloud Giantess & Nemean Lion, but a LEUCROTTA as well! They are such crazy weird, and terrifying monsters, it's good to see more miniatures of them. The only other one I know of is an older D&D pre-paint figure, and it's not very elaborate. I love that Cerberus and the minotaur are next. I hope that means we'll get a HUGE Hades to accompany/oppose the Storm giant 'Zeus'. I'd love a nice (and HUGE) female Grecian titan to pose as Hera/Artemis/Athena.

It kinda sucks that the Greek II has only 7minis most of which are man-size. Hopefully III will make up for it. I'm really liking the Greek expansion, although I have absolutely no use for it. Not that that has stopped me in the past.

Remind me, I haven't actually bought anything since III, will the pledge manager allow for the cherry picking single models, or is it only the add one/core as they're presented? The last thing I bought was a big one and existed as an add on by itself, but this time I'm seeing a handful I'd like, but nothing to justify a big buy in.

I haven't followed the comments to know how V is going but with IV they allowed cherry picked of everything that wasn't in a theme set. So singles from the core pledge but if you want one thing from the Greek set you have to buy the whole set or wait for retail.

Actually in Bones IV the core set was split into themed bundles, not singles. Mostly the models that unlocked together had to be bought together.
