Galleys and Galleons [20]

I've spent the day painting the kids bedrooms as the boys are both away for the week, one on a scout camp in Dorset and the other on a sail training week somewhere in the Channel Islands. The bloke in the local Co-Op told me I looked like a smurf, being covered in a fine mist of azure blue emulsion paint, but at least that bit is done and I can now move onto the woodwork.

As a result, I only had an hour or so this evening for wargaming stuff, so I've assembled the last (?) of the Peter Pig pirate ships for Galleys and Galleons. This is the biggest model in the range and is a resin casting with metal masts and sails. It went together really easily and I've added some heavy guns and crew to the maindeck to turn it into a large man o'war.

I'll start on painting the fleet tomorrow, although I'm only going to start with the schooners sloops, as theses can be painted up together being relatively small.  I want to put on another playtest game for Gary and Mike in a couple of weeks time, so it would be only decent to get at least half a dozen of the ships painted up beforehand if I can.


  1. They look great - looking forward to seeing them painted-up.

  2. Oh my goodness that is a lot of ships! Have you put them into predetermined fleets or is it more of a pick and mix selection?

    The larger merchantman looks great as a Man of War!

  3. No, I just glued them all together and will sort them out later on!

  4. Jolly Nice looking Fleet. Beano Boy
