Periagua Canoes in 15mm/18mm, or 25mm/28mm?
« on: October 13, 2011, 07:03:02 PM »
Does anyone make these long dugout canoes in either 15mm/18mm, or 25mm/28mm scale?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periagua

I'm looking for one about 30 scale feet long, so around 3.5" for 15mm, or 5" - 6" or so long in 25mm/28mm scale.

I imagine I can make one out of Sculpey, or clay, if pressed, but thought I'd see if anyone does them currently already, in either metal, or resin.

I could also use some buccaneer type paddlers, either paddling, indian style like in a canoe, or as rowers, since they used both methods to power the craft. Supposedly, paddling was quieter for sneaking up on vessel's crews during a final approach at night.

Flagship Games, now produced by Scale Creep, for 28mm:

He hasn't caught up with photos, yet.  The dugouts are nice and simple, just wide enough to allow 4 figures on 1" bases.

I made canoes in 15 mm with sculpey and used Irregulars canoers as crew (but they are more for French and Indian war than as pirates.).  You might try Peter Pigs boat crews but they are more rowing than paddling.  And the two ranges are way too far apart and size to 'bash' them into what you need.

I'm on the look out for crewed 15 mm outrigger canoes myself, polynesian style, for my own pirate game in development.

Good luck.

Old Glory has both smaller and longer versions in the French & Indian War line you might be able to use.  Here's the link, and I'll try to add pics too...

Not sure why Old Glory does the distort thing on their images...
