New Boats from Partizan

In the limited browsing/shopping time I had at Partizan I did manage to pick up a few bits and pieces, including some ready-based S&A hedges and treasure chests from Fenris.

I also added to my growing collection of 28mm boats, with a couple from Empress Miniatures and one from Coritani. Both types are excellent - a bit bigger than the ones I've got, and good value too (Empress £10 and Coritani £8). Everything is resin except for the Coritani mast, which is wooden.

I've now got them painted up, which was a simple job and done to match my other related stuff. The two from Empress are very suitable as ship's boats or launches, and the Coritani one comes with a mast and some stowage.


The seats come out of the bigger boats, to allow more figures/cargo, etc, to fit in. Very handy. I've also left the mast and stowage loose for the other boat so that I can use them in different ways.



I'm very happy with them, they're handy additions for river and coast-based skirmishes, and suitable for a wide spread of periods.
