Here are more views of the "blue boat"
Basically you can change all the different areas to a variety of colors. The basic wood hull comes in two skins. A light wood with dark details and a dark wood with light details. And then you can add different colors to different details and create gazillions of different boats :-)
I am a huge fan and have purchased all the sets so far but I didn't see that the docks were released? Or did I miss those?
thank you very much for your support! These docks were in the "small boats and docks" release in July 2018 on my Patreon. For now the Pirate Fleet series will only be available on Patreon as I am saving these sets for my first kickstarter. If you have missed them there, just write me a short eMail (email@example.com) and we can sort it out. There is always a solution
I have not planned anything special for interior for now, but with the parts you can mod an interior (walls and floor). This month I am releasing the first half (hull, deck and cabin) but next month when I do the rest I might have more time to think about interior details.
What would go into the cabin? A captains hammock? log book desk?

If you can trust Oat Krunchies, there would be chairs and weapons on the walls. I'm not sure if that is a desk or table, but there is also a nightstand to the left of the window. Any of these would probably be appropriate furnishings. That is probably the captain's cabin, so things of value would probably be stored there. In the Black Arrow, Shelton steals a ship, and weapons, small arms and a statue of the Virgin were in the captain's cabin.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Basically, since the chest already substitues for a table in emergencies, it could substitute for a table all the time. So, you could put a hammock, a chest (or two), a chair, and some kind of shelf into the cabin and have it filled with all a captain would need.
I have been working on chests and barrels. So I will also do some hammocks and table. The weapon rack/shelves I might do as wall texture. This could be a nice generic sub set! Thank you for the link shep
Then here is a little preview of the new textured build. As the ship is taking longer than my usual one month release schedule I have to release the hull only this month and then continue with the rig the next. So here is the old, weather beaten hull build :-)
And just for comparison the new and the old. I went lighter and bleached with the wood tone to add to the used look.
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.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
