The Black Ship is suited for fantasy RPG, pirate, or skirmish tabletop games. Included in the .ZIP file are: separate deck layouts, interior fittings such as barrels and boxes, a removable ‘wake’ that simulates ship movement, cannons, ballista, and rigging clips. The separate decks can be used to simulate movement within the ship.

To rig this model, check out the Rigging Guide. You will need dowel and black elastic string.

    Looking at the images you have a painted version of the Black Ship in Grey, I love this paint job. Do you have a tutorial on how this was painted? (I see there are other models painted in this way too)

      I will post a full tutorial in the new year. The ship was primed in black and drybrushed in dungeon grey. The Metallics were layered with GW Typhus Corruption, drybrushed with GW Ryza rust, washed in Army Painter Sepia Wash and highlighted with Army Painter Gun Metal. The roof tiles were painted in Army Painter Alien Purple, washed in Army Painter Purple Tone and black, and highlighted with Army Painter Oozing Purple.

    Is this the same length as the Galleon?

      The Black Ship is much shorter. The Galleon is the longest ship by far.

    I’m printing the main body now but was wondering if there is a guide on which rigging peices I need?… I checked the references in the Imperial folder but they seem like different sizes. Do I print them all?

      The reference is in metric sizes, you will need to print the equivalent in imperial.
