The Ironfang Pirate Fleet, part 39: The Rotmoon - a Harrowmark skyvessel. Part 2

I've started building the base for The Rotmoon.

Most of the parts come from the Citadel Woods kit so far, with the addition of some assorted skulls from the Citadel Skulls box, mushrooms from the Shattered Dominion Large Base Detail Kit and an anchor from a toy pirate ship (found on eBay). I've made the ground uneven with some blended Milliput and greenstuff and added a greenstuff press-molded crab. I have textured the anchor with Typhus Corrosion Technical Paint and I'm going to be using liberal quantities of Agrellan Earth on the sand when I texture it.

The ship itself isn't quite finished yet - it needs a lateen sail and some rigging - but the tree holds it fairly well already. I will be making sure it is very firmly held in place with greenstuff and extra branches though.

The whole thing is heavily influenced by John Blanche's Voodoo Forest project and his earlier flying ship illustrations. I'm considering adding a few Idoneth Deepkin fishy creatures (from the Gloomtide Shipwreck kit) to the base.


  1. Whoa, this looking rather special already!
    Some great ideas and I can almost hear the wood creaking as the wind blows.
    Very nice!

    1. Thanks! Creaking wood is a definite in this old tub!
