ON first viewing i was blown away. ON second, closer inspection i think that the ship is an amazing sculpt. The figures on the deck are..... distinctly lackluster. Almost like they just grabbed a bunch of old models and glued them down.
But thats just my opinion. Will be interested to see it in the flesh.
Out of curiosity tarviche, what were you expecting?
Hmm, I guess something a bit spookier, less concrete, less plain, more complex and creatively designed--I was hoping for something like the Mortis Engine, but more naval. See below--the verticality, the more complex geometry, the more integrated ghostly creatures/components. It looks otherworldly and unsettling.
Skarre 3, by contrast, looks like a cutaway section of a regular ship you'd find at a museum, stuck on top of some soul bits. The souls/crew/ship really do look kind of patched together, like a conversion, to me.
Love the rules, though, so I might try to bash these two models together to make something more to my liking, and just put a dashing female skeleton pirate at the wheel.
Replace "strongest" with "versatile" and you might be right. Might.
On the sculpt: I'm torn. Not enough "Ghost", too much "Ship" for my taste. I like the comparison to the Mortis Engine or heck: The artwork on the card! Would have been way better with the "riding on a wave of Ghosts" design. Instead of "some ghosts prop up our ship"
