Gloomtide shipwreck painted

It took half a pot of Hexwraith Flame to get this one done, but the Gloomtide Shipwreck is now complete

This is another of my rare models which has been painted within a year of purchase. The model comes in two large pieces

These can be used a scatter terrain on a tabletop, or as either scenic or scenario based terrain for dungeon adventure type systems. It’s a nice model and has a lot of presence.

The model was find to paint, and there’s no need to take the ghost ship approach I took, as leaving the model in pieces and painting those up as a regular old shipwreck would look just as good, and provide more tabletop terrain.

    Nice work! As you mentioned at the end, I’m looking to paint mine as a regular shipwreck for my Hollywood-historical pirate project. It’s a lovely model, and surprisingly cheap for its size and quality.

      thanks Mikko! Yes it was one of those times where I felt the model was well worth its asking price. It has great table presence.

    I really like this piece, it has lots of potential. It has got me thinking that’s for sure. If you get really desperate you could always do another for a fish tank 😉

    Very cool man. I have the same kit but my plan is to “fix” the ship first haha. Join the two sides. It’s been done before. Again, very nice mate

      You post made me reach over and do a very crude push fit attempt – I think it needs a little work as some bits line up nicely but others get in the way!

        I think the old lollipop pop sticks will be at hand

    Man, seeing it like this makes me want to paint a suitably spectral blue/purple one to match my army …

      It’s definitely a model that could have different colour schemes applied and still look great
