This thing is friggin' awesome and I probably I need some more of them. I picked this up from the Sea Dog Game Studio booth at GenCon 2022. I've been looking at their 28mm boats for 6ears and was peer-pressured into picking one up this time. I'm so glad I gave in.
The sail probably wouldn't actually work but it gets the point across that this is a boat for getting miniatures across the waters. I went with a basic brown but I've seen another with a great grayish white scheme that makes me realize they would look good in almost any colors.
The golden fleece on the side of the boat was something I thought would be cool to add. I originally thought about putting in some amphorae and other equipment but decided those would be best created as standalone scatter pieces that could also fit into the boat.
The fleece itself is made of greenstuff and a resin skull. It turned out way more convincing than I expected.the Helen of Troy figure looks pretty cool next to the fleece.
Finally we see how well standard 20mm-based figures fit with the boat en masse, well two 3-man/Amazon hoplites.
And an overhead view shows the slight bit of room between each figure.
