Hi all,

I hadn't ever noticed there was a scracthbuilding board.

Here is my latest effort. It's not quite finished yet but this is where I am now. It is a river Paddle Steamer in 28mm for my Russian Civil War armies. Apologies for duplication when crossposting to the RCW board.


And some earlier WIP shots

Looks good!

And if you do Victorian colonial gaming, this would not look out of place on the Nile or any other African river.

Thanks guys.

We have some other boats for the Sudan at the club but with different guns and crew it might serve for 'Heart of Darkness' style games. I've thought before about doing some Force Publique.
