I designed a shipshed for my galleys. It is some 6cm in lenght. Cute, isn't it? Detailed explanation here below. I thought it was really necessary to have for several scenarios!

Not many battles take place within view of the sheds, but I still like seeing important ancient buildings, especially on a small scale. We need more of that.

And thanks for sharing the model, too.

A very nice explanation

Thanks! Indeed they would need some other buildings to go along and make a full port. I do have walls already done for my 2mm, maybe some houses could help

There are actually quite a few battles where shipsheds could feature. These are very nice and at 6mm the scale allows a whole port to be on the table. Nice work!

Well if you go to burn down the enemy's port, he'd better have some shipsheds otherwise it's not even worth it, isnt it??
