I've just completed my second dive crew. Once again, I'm using divers from the Meridian kickstarter.

Standard figures as bought, with the exception of a bit of greenstuff on the chest for a metal plate/lead weight to match the style of the first set of divers.


Some conversions. From left to right: head-changed leader, speargunner with added boarding axe to give a bit of variety, 2 boarding pike conversions.


The full crew.


Next up will be a Merrow scout for this crew and an armoured dive suit for each crew. This will give players some options to select their forces from.

Great work, Dave. Had the luck you showed me some at Blam, but the rest is as brilliant as the start. I feel really Jules Verne in them. Maybe a game of the secret Island from Verne?

Amazingly fantastic work, I doff my hat to you!!!
Tis such a pity these figures are no longer available as they would lend themselves to some excellent conversions for differing situations

Now that I've got some figures completed I need some terrain for them to fight over.

First off, a kelp forest using plastic aquarium plants and garden wire to stiffen them.


I'm also working on a set of rock formations. These are assembled from foamboard, textured and now waiting to be painted.
