The first set of ships has arrived - from Valiant:
A trio of Heptares. Although a length for the miniature is given on the Valiant web site, I was still surprised at them.
Here is a closer look:
like assembly will be straightforward, although I seem to have too many
starboard-side oar banks (see the bottom ship in the above pic). I
will send off an e-mail about that.
matter what scale I finally choose, and I can see using a combo of
1/900 (for larger ships) and 1/1200 (for the rest especially cargo
ships), I intend to use some of the ideas found here.
