Now that I've made my VSF Roman army, I need transport for it. To that end, I'm looking for a model trireme/bireme/whatever that's got deck area for about 10-20 figures on US pennies, and is still small enough that I can transport it. This probably means 12-16" long.
Anyone have recommendations? I'm also trying to not break the bank on this, as I do want to afford the new Hinterland releases one of these months.
Biggus Dickus knows the answer to that. He has two! Very nice they are and I (blowing own trumpet here) named it. In fact, if you do a search you'll find the thread with the pictures on it and probably the manufacturer too. Alternatively, try sending BD a PM and ask the question.
I think BD got his from Grand manner (although he would have to verify that)

Here is the link to the "Dolphinus" with some pictures,(thanks Big Al http://www.warlordgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2752 it is by grand manner.....have to say a wonderful ship, being resin quite heavy. if you check out the deck shots you'll see i get about 20 or so marines on but i would advise using square 20mm bases as you'll likely get more on deck...the deck not being curved like pennies!
i guess it really depends on how much kit bashing you intend to do.....A plastic one may be better for that purpose especially if lets say it is modelled as an air ship....but the down side to the plastic kit is you won't be able to get that many troops on it.
Either way good luck and i look forward to seeing the results! I'm off for a !!!! hope that helps!
