|Concept inspiration from my,"Art of the Return of the king" book.|
My friend Jeff G. is running a huge Lord of the Rings game, and needed some help with his "Black ships". So, looking in my reference books, I had him over one evening to see what we could knock out.
|Another concept. I took the shield and sail patterns from this one.|
The ships are to be used in the background of the game, more scenery than "hero" model. Here's what we came up with.
|The ship bases were Old Glory, I believe|
|the gunwales are matt board, wood. Sails and flags are paper and tracing paper.|
|First time I used tracing paper for the flags. They have a nice "thin" feel. Happy accidents!|
|Once painted, these guys should look pretty ominous!|
