Won't You Let Me Take You On A Sea Cruise

Here we have the Queen of Sparta on a voyage over the wine dark sea with Paris, Prince of Troy.
The Prince's cousin, Aeneas points the way towards Troy.
Fair weather speeds them on.
Will they receive a warm welcome in Troy?
All of the figures and the ship are Redoubt Enterprises which were painted some time ago. The ship was picked up on sale when Doug at Miniature Service Center was clearing out his 28mm inventory. I had noticed the ship was never included in the blog before, so figured it was a good a time as any as it follows the last post's story line. Also, I'll likely not be updating the blog until next weekend while attending the big local convention, Enfilade!

    1. Thanks, Joe. The ship and figures are all Redoubt Enterprises. I picked the ship up on sale from Miniatures Service Company a few years ago when the owner was selling off all of this 28mm stuff :) Regards, Dean

  13. Will the princess receive a warm welcome, will she ever if she keeps those boobs on full beam.

    Really, sunbathing on the poop deck is all well and good but parading your tan lines in front of the propulsion system (crew) isn't going to do much for their concentration or their strokes per minute.... errr.... oh, .....poor choice of words.

    Lovely toys Dean, perfect for a narrative game or campaign

  15. What an incredible model, this would be the centrepiece of any tabletop!

    Lovely work, Dean, as always!

  16. Smart idea by putting it on a large base. I would also be concerned with the oars breaking off or getting bent up. Great looking model. I can't recall seeing one all painted up before.
