Well ... that only worked for so long.
I've folded with the new Kickstarter and dove in head first ... and just in case you have not seen it, Firelock Games is running their second Blood and Plunder Kickstarter (no peace beyond the line) ...
|Blood and Plunder|
No peace beyond the line
I have also ordered the existing collection including all four factions and ships. One thing I really looking forward to doing is a nice Caribbean sea table for which I am drawing inspiration from the absolutely stunning demo table that Firelock Games uses ...
I'll be going for a similar effect that shows the shallow "reflections" from the water. I'm just trying to decide right now on how to build it out ... I could do 2x2 or 2x4 squares ... my ultimate goal is a 6x8 table ... with the last 2' or so being a shoreline with dock that goes into a Caribbean village with Spanish style buildings.
The four existing factions are below: English, French, Spanish and Unaligned. The new Kickstarter adds Dutch, Native Caribbeans, Pirates & Privateers, and European Land Forces.
In addition to the miniatures, the ships available are made of resin and having received my first batch of figures and ships I can say they are of extremely high quality ...
The new Kickstarter adds even more ships, with the most awesome looking Galleon ... of which I'll be getting two!
I'm really excited about getting this game done and in play. I'll be doing a lot of posting as I make progress here. I've been busy (as usual) with work, but I'm dedicated to getting a lot of great progress done this summer.
