Apparently, he bought a pirate ship from the Minimi stand at Colours a few weeks ago, which probably explains why they had sold out by the time I got there on Saturday afternoon!
If, as I suspect is inevitble, I decide to get a ship for Black Jack Trelawney, I may well scratchbuild rather than buy one off the shelf. I had looked at the Games Of War ships but can't help thinking that I could build one myself for less than the £50 plus price tag.
There is a small ship, the Sea Dog, in their range but by definaition it's a bit of a glorified rowing boat rather than a full on sloop or brig, so less than impressive even though it's only £15:
I think I'll have a crack at scratchbuilding something possibly unsing the Gary Chalk plans from the Foundry Compendium before I wimp out and go for the easy option. At least I have the crew and cannons already!
