"There once was a ship that put to sea" KoM for Armada

As a fan of old pirate movies and naval games in general Armada is a must

and of course I need a generic human fleet along the others (as well as I like to convert my models and KoM are a great opportunity here)

so after I got the KoM cards I decided to start small and bought a Brig & Frigates box in addition to 1 Brig and 1 Frigate sprue I got from Wargames Illustrated

first things first (to get in the right mood)
(how to you link vidoes directly?)

because there are 2 different Frigate sized ships in the list and I have more Brigs than I need I decided to cut off the front of one ship and the back of another to make a larger Brig and a smaller Brig that can be used as tiny ships (1 per Base)

because the Warlord ships are deeper in the water than the Mantic ships, I added plasitc card underneath to add more freeboard and also started experimenting with plastic card for sails (instead of the paper sails coming with the box)


Nice job - look forward to seeing the completed fleet

some progress, cut the masts of the ships down for easier play and added some sails


slow but steady (main project are models for Saga and Brotherhood at the moment)


First 4 Ships ready to paint
