Thank you so very much Dwarf!

I've contacted the artist by email and we'll soon learn if he still produces those marvelous pieces... (fingers crossed).

I found the following blog/link which describes the effort of a guy and his group at doing RPG with pirates! He converted a plastic toy from Disney (The Black Pearl itself) and the result looks terrific!

The ships from Arsenale Shipworks look good, but they are a little bit too "cartoony" for my tastes. They are available painted or unpainted.

The Privateer costs $89.99 painted or $74.99 unpainted.



The Merchant Caravel costs $59.99 painted and $49.99 unpainted.



There are also a few smaller ships and goodies...

Up until now, Gerard Boom, the artist behing "Shifting Lands" has not answered my email. I hope he did not abandon his business as his sculpts are fantastic!

Wow, those actually look pretty nice. The price difference between painted and not painted is incredible. I'm just pleased they even have a painted option. Thanks for the update.

Not ships, per se, but it looks like Miniature Building Authority has added a couple different types of piers to their line up:






And there's also the small boat which they've been producing for a while now:

I found a few more boats (thanks to Endar's post showing us his gladiator arena) at Manorhouse Workshop (manorhouseworkshopmindstalkers.wordpress.com/manorhouse-workshop-catalogue/mhw-boats/).

Supplied unpainted for 20 euros:



and for 11 euros:

Here is a report of my experience regarding the boats available at Shifting Lands (www.shiftinglands.com/). First off, I don't think Shifting Lands is a company per se. It is more like a blog maintained by an enthusiast miniaturist (Gerard Boom; gerard dot boom at kpnmail dot nl) who happened to have sculpted a few beautiful ships and who is kind enough to offer them for sale, for quite cheap frankly. Go check out the other cool projects he has been working on!

I contacted Gerard in July 2011 (twice) and once in August. 6 weeks later, he finally answered. Then, I asked for the price of a few ships and he answered 1 week later. Then, I ordered a few of them and he then sent me an invoice only 2-3 weeks later. I guess the downside of dealing with someone who works for fun more then for money is slow service... but let me tell you, it is pretty much worth the wait!!!

Shipping of up to 6 medium size ships to the US costs 25$. To make this shipping worth it, I ordered 2 merchant vessels (25 Euros each), 2 medium-sized boats (10 Euros each) and 2 Row boats (5 Euros each). Gerard being quite generous threw in a few submarines of his design in the lot that I find very gnomish as well as a few resin casts of freight. I am in the process of painting everything and I'll show it when I'm done.

Regarding his biggest ship (The Buccaneer), I did not order it because Gerard told me he does not like to cast it anymore (I guess because the casting is quite demanding/costly and his mold might be fast deteriorating). I must say that I pretty much regret not acquiring this huge ship given the beauty of the sculpts of the ships I acquired. Gerard is supposed to contact me if ever he casts it again.

Yarrrrr ye Salty Sea Dogs. I have a whale of a tale that'll chill ya to da bone. Lost at sea was I. For an eternity I drifted in the briney deep without a ship. A float on a couple of wooden doors lashed together. Wrecked and drifting across the endless blue. My mind was slipping away as the sun burned down and then from the horizon it came. The mysterious tropical triangle would not take my soul this day. I was saved. A magnificent lady of the sea slashing through the cresting blue n white. A Man O War flying the skull n bones of a privateer filled my eyes.


Hello DF Fans

After a long break I have returned. Love all the posts. This community forum is great. I bought a Man O War and a Merchantman Ship from Ainsty Casting. I haven't begun construction yet but the raw product looks great. I will post photos as the ships progress. My experience with Ainsty Casting was really good. I also bought some stone dock pieces that should fit perfect with the ships. Post more when I can. Keep the wind at your back and may your sails stay full. Cheers :)

The ships done by Ainsty castings are very nice indeed.
Had a look at them in real life at a show recently. Very nicely detailed.
Only issue is the weight with regards postage as they are pretty heavy.

But lovely detailing.

I have a scratch build pirate ship I bought seocnd hand, at a show. But too piraty for my fantasy games where I want something smaller, more like the merchant man in the previous posts..

Problem with those boats is that they are fixed size, not modular. I'm currently working on one that is modular and could be used to make either 1 level or 2 level boat, and go from 12 inches to 30 inches long. Width is always 6 inches

Once the prototype is done, I will send picture to stefan.
