In the queue to finish over the next month:

5 divers
2 sharks
1 octopus
1 large terrain piece
5 objective markers

Let's see if I can achieve this :)

As evidence that I'm back on this project, here is the next batch of figures that I'm working on:



A converted leader with knife and spear gun, another converted diver with a whaling harpoon and three divers with salvage tools. Also another shark, because you just can't have enough hostile aquatic creatures  :D

Good to see this thread rise up from the depths again. I’ve got a load of those sharks for Spy Fi action. I got them when you could order bits from Reaper. I keep thinking I should order the set with a Tiger and Hammerhead too...

Re: Bullshott Goes Underwater - Teaser: wrecked submarine

As a teaser for my next item of terrain, I bought this from my local aquarium shop (at a good discount due to some minor damage to one of the deck features):



The whole submarine is about 80cm long :o

I'm in the process of converting it to more 19th century lines, including removal of the conning tower and giving it a singe torpedo tube in the bow.

That looks like a challenge and a half. It'll be interesting to see what you do with it.

The final submarine will contain elements of some of these early vessels:

Lovely! Good find. Almost seems a shame to chop it up, but all in a good cause.
