Scratch build Boxer pirate ship

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Scratch build Boxer pirate ship

Just messing around really, never made a ship of this size before (28mm) so i thought i would start with a prototype and once i have cracked it then i will create another two, so far its looking ok, need to add more paint and weather it then create those great sails they have.

Going to get Boxer artillery guns and get the figures for the crew from Redoubt miniatures which i think are the best around, they are chunky and those figures with the jingal i can just see them rounding off a shot on that outer decking.

Anyway here is the pictures so far.
