Quick SITREP - Easter

Easter is a busy time for me and what with a couple of job interviews to prep for and go to (neither of which I got) I haven't been able to do any modelling or gaming.

However leading on from my last BATREP I've decided to take the gang on board the Paula M , secure it and hopefully save the ABs that fled. This requires the manufacture of the smack's internal geography. I was inspired by this work of art which is one of two on the local beaches.

The heirs on a blowy day
Just out of curiosity this instillation is on Hoylake seafront. This is were Daniel Craig (007) was brought up, the promenade was featured on the ITV series Watching for those of you old enough to remember it. On a wargaming front the town was also the site of William of Orange and his army's campsite before his embarkation to Ireland prior to the Battle of the Boyne. Additionally, there is a full Viking longboat buried under the car park of nearby pub, which makes it too expensive to excavate.

So this week's task is to convert the below into the innards of a rum runner.


Take care out there.

Thanks for stopping by.
