So, my son expects his players to aquire a ship soon and asked me to make him one. I dove into my hard drive and came up with a ship by Shadowolf which I think I got from MMiP. I enlarged it and changed it around a bit.
I printed it on paper and then mounted it on a large sheet of bristol board so I could splice the two halves of the sides together.

here is page 3 of 3
I left the margin on the large beige area to be the tab for the mast when you roll it up. The little shed goes on the fordeck with the mast going through it and the second mast (just cut the long tube in half) goes on the poop deck. ( ha ha, I said "poop!" )
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

Excellent! We have another paper-crafting session Saturday. Isaiah, my friend Andy's son, is wanting more figures and ground vehicles. Oh, and a submarine. Andy wants to work on a more complex air/space vehicle and Andy's wife Tiffany wants to do another boat and maybe an animal or two. This is perfect. She already has the boat and squid ... LOL.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

Hey Afet, Nice to hear from you. I'd like to see the oars.
Vermin King: before you use the model, best double check that the bow profiles of both sides line up. I had a small issue that I think I corrected in the pdf, but I have no need for a second ship so I have not tried a re-build.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
Hi, all. Here are the oars that I made up. They are glued to the side of the ship near the water line, and assume oarsmen below deck. It´s best to glue them onto a second layer of scrap card-stock, to make them more solid. Cheers,
Hi, all. Here's some shots of my 28mm redux of Shadowolf's original 15mm(?) ship. On the first shot you can see his original on the left. The original included lowered areas on either side, presumably for rowers, I removed the lowered areas. For my redux, I added hatch images, a set of oars, and used the mast from WWG's Maiden. Enjoy.

Okay, here's parts of my redux, minus the mast, which is modified from the WWG Maiden. I'm not posting that, as I know Denny is sticky about kitbashes.
To help line up the front and back pieces of the sides, I left illustration photo of Shadowolf's original. Use it to set up the correct overlap.
I glued a piece of foam core to the underside of the deck, both to create a solid play surface and to give a stable base for attaching the mast. To attach the mast, I cut a hole in the deck, inserted the mast so it protruded through the bottom an inch or so, then I cut the protruding mast into tabs, which I folded up and glued it to the underside of the deck.
trying to figure out how to join them properly.. :-)
I left the illustration image on the page so that you could use it to line up the two pieces. I cut the back half of the side hull piece off at the edge of the image, laid the back half of the side over the front half, lined up the illustration, and drew a pencil line on the front half where the overlap should end. Then I cut out the front half, leaving a white tab onto which I glued the back half. Hope that makes sense
Also, I forgot that I had made up a 2D lower deck, so that you can build an encounter that includes the oarsmen below decks. I added that to the files I posted previously.
It turns out that GrendelsMother64's mast from his Viking ship is a perfect fit for this larger model! I've updated the archive above with the art and cutfiles for the mast (and modded deck for the larger hole.)
I think that means at least 4 of us have had a hand in this model. :-)
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
