NEW SHIPS IN THE WILD

A few fotos of the reinforced fleet having at each other. All ships are Threes,
The velour base cloth is at its best here. It looks alive and no hexes...
A squadron prepares to get under way from a hidden cove. Commander has a pennant.

An Athenian drone captures the Laconian fleet forming up.

The Athenians in the distance. Laconian fleet prepares an ambush behind Holy Island.
Athenians coming up in file. Ambush awaits behind Holy Island.
The land is polystyrene. Temple is a 3D-printed Parthenon (not finished painting it yet, those metope friezes are tricky at this scale....).

SLIPWAYS BUSY AGAIN

I have been knocking together some more ships for rules testing.
All trieres/Threes

I build them from plasticard, paper, card and glue.

Tricky to do much detail at this scale

I will put scenery tips up soon and game fotos.
My eyes now feel like I should consider moving over to resin or tin casting for large numbers.....

I tried to include some variation to avoid unhistorical uniformity. Or did I just fail to make accurate copies ?
