Man o War

Some cogs I built for Man’o’War, the GW fantasy naval battle game.  The sails and flags are from MOW kits, to give an indication of scale.


I also did a number of sea monsters, and they are below.  Not to scale — the scan below shrinks them relative to the cogs.



Here is a picture of a couple of the monsters and an ironclad, which is also scratchbuilt.

DSC02932Vikings! (sorry, too much flash!)

DSC02924A merchantman.

DSC02926A corsair with a really offensive bowspirit.

DSC02929Another ship.

DSC02956This pirate galleon is probably my favorite.  The sails are labels from “Evil Eye” ale. (J.J. Wainwright still brews this but I can’t recall what it is like.  I must have liked though!)


Lastly, A rather sloppy copy of an Imperial greatship, behind a lead Games Workshop model.
