Need some help -- probably from someone in the UK. What is the source of the Egyptian warship on pages 124 and 136 in the "Age of Bronze" supplement for "Hail Caesar?" If there is a note of attribution for the ship(s) in the text, I cannot find it.

Appreciate any help here… I would LIKE to get a couple copies of the model myself. IF it is not already "out of production!"

Maybe no one on here has the supplement? I know I don't.

(can you add some scans?)

A picture would help. Might just be a custom.

Looks like Monolith Designs. They had some of the best Egyptian stuff. Sadly they vanished with no selling on of moulds. No full explanation was given.However the web site is still up.

@ Colonel Bill… yes… that is the one. That image is found on pg. 136 (to which I alluded in my original query). A close-up of the fore-deck and prow image (lion?) is on pg. 124.

However, I do not think that the ship model illustrated in the supplement, unless considerably modified (which of COURSE it MIGHT be!!) is a Monolith ship. I'd argue that, as can be seen by comparing the WG supplement image to the image still "up" on the apparently-now-defunct Monolith website (just below)?

As I say, however, I am QUITE prepared to accept that the model is a considerably modified Monolith ship. It is just I have an "inquiring mind," and I want to know!!! grin Of course, now that Monolith has apparently -- to be charitable, rather than "rude" about it in my assessment -- "ceased trading," it will not be possible to acquire a copy of that model to play the scenarios in the book… sadly. frown
