Pirate Sloop - Finished!

I've finally finished the pirate sloop this evening and, given that it's made almost entirely out of stuff I already had in the bits box, I'm pretty pleased with the end result.

I stuck the ship to the sea base with PVA then added some GW snow effect flock around the bow in an attempt to make a bit of a bowwave. The end result looked like a coconut fairy cake so it was quickly wiped off and the hull re-stuck down before anyone noticed.

I then painted up the 15mm Peter Pig cannon which will stand in as light guns in 28mm. I painted the barrels in GW Brazen Brass then washed them with GW Flesh Wash. The carriages were painted in Foundry bay Brown Shade and Bay Brown then covered with the usual black/brown Klear wash. I finished off by painting the trunnions and metal bits with more Brazen Brass before spraying on GW Satin Varnish.


There are a few extra bits I could add but I think it's now time to move on to the next project. It has got me thinking about gunboats, dhows and dugouts for Darkest Africa though....
