Well it has taken me nearly 12 months to design, build and paint this ship. It has truly been a challenge and great fun! I have learnt a lot though the process. Looking back now I think there is very little I would have done differently, except put the ship on a slight angle so that it is not so square/flat on its base - I think this would have made it a little bit more dynamic.

Overall I am really happy with how the project has turned out. I am looking forward to the next stages of completing my Corsair army and making a display board for it all to go on - not done yet!

Thank you to all the community for feedback, comments and ideas you have helped me on this journey.

Anyway here are a couple of final photos below - there are more photos on my blog for you to enjoy!

Amazing! I was just blown away by all the pictures on your website. Quite the ambitious effort but it was certainly worth it!

For those of you who want to have your own ship.

This one from a kickstarter looks rather similar, if less Elfy.

Nice find Ambodine - with a few dark elf bits that could do the job nicely.

This remains such an epic project. Do you have an army shot of your corsair army?

LOL - I was so depressed after Armies on Parade - I really thought I would win gold for this project but came second to a Chaos Daemons army (it was something really special and a well deserved win)

I forgot to post a final photo of the complete army! I will get one up for you to have a look at in the next few days - thanks for the reminder.

Here is a photo of the finished board. I'm sorry there are not more photos to look at. I was having difficulty with the lighting and size of the subject matter when taking photos.

It still blows my mind everytime I see it. I so want to have a ship too now .. And a scenario to field it!

I'm still amazed at how GOOD this is.
Awesome job.
Killing is no fun, for me.
A dead person, feels no pain, no suffering.
Death is my gift, to enemies worth of my sword.
The rest will know the true definition of agony.
And i will make damn sure they live long enough to learn it.
