This one is the rough Sizing I worked out from Real-life Ship to Warhamer scale (shooting scale), and Deck Space Diagrams, notice the scale at the top left of the page.

This one is an olde pic from my 4th ed army book.
Image
This is a refined pic from my 6th ed army book. (I made a Ship like this one, Ill see if i can find a cord for my camera or phone, and upload a pic or two for you.. :D )

Holy ship! Champion! I have a mate who's going to do the modeling for me, I'm sure this will be a big help.

Apologies for the very crappy quality, its on the Ipod touch Camera, (for some reason they looked alot better on the ipod, :? :wink: :lol: )
Anyway here they are, pics of my Elven Ship (I made it to scale for the Hawk Ship, [the smallest one])
Oh and dont use Tape AT ALL, esp; masking/packing tape, it's horrid.... #-o [-X :cry: :(

FULL
Image
SIDE
Image
DRAGON HEAD FIGURE
Image
DECK
Image
TAIL FIGURE
Image
MAST ETC...
Image
WITH MODELS FOR SIZE COMPARISON
Image

If you wanted to know the Dimentions:
Length (from bow point to tail): 28.5"
Width: 6"
Height (to mast tip): 16.5"
Height (to dragon horns figure): 13"
Mast: 13.75"
Mainsail Top Boom (front): 17.25"
Rear Boom: 11.5"
Gaff (top rear boom): 7.75"
Deck: 14.5" x 6" (5.25" at front, 4.25" at rear)

Made out of cardboard (thin), and balsa wood, dodgy tape, cereal box card, and a Polystyrene foam core (the card is layered around the foam base), the sides were/are one piece each side, the tail and Dagon head figures were carved out of single pieces of balsa (with the exception of the fins on the dragon head), and the deck (paneling) was carved out of two pieces of flat balsa

Impressive, an unfinished project or just a long term one? The dimensions will be a great help, pretty sure my mate has his own ideas about design, but the drawing and pictures are so much more helpful then googling Man O War pics. This is the smallest one you say? How big would a Dragonship be... ye gads it would be immense! Surely you could plaster over the tape or something. I don't know that the model will get used in gameplay, maybe a scenario with a landing or something, but with the Seaguard and Bolt Throwers I think I ship would just fit in so well. Maybe i could make it a fluffy army too, I'm gonna have to come up with a story for it.

Yeah,... a work in "not so much anymore, since I looked at the tape a few months back" Project, Since it is/was a Proto-type, I want to re-do it with a better design, more Elven Sloop Ship, than Elven Viking Dragon Ship... :wink:

Yeah I had/have plans to do 4-6 Hawk Ships (roughly the same size: around 26" long x 6" wide/possibly a Catamaran, possibly with a building/house), 2 Eagle Ships (about 36" long x 8" wide/possibly a Trimaran, with a building/s of some sort), and 1 "Immense" Dragon Ship (about 52" long x 12" wide/possibly a Quadramaran, with a small town), And a (Port City) Display board for them to go on... just need Money, and Time, lots and lots of Time.... :)

That ship is beautiful.

Looks like something discovered in an ancient tomb somewhere!

The slenderness and the shallow bottom remind me of Minoan ships and others from that era.

Always felt there was something elfin about the Minoans. Some kind of chariot army project always appealed to me.

Hmmm. To help the OP, in last year's Island of Blood and Plastic kit launch issues are pics of scratchbuilt Elf ships...

Can't have too many pictures to work off, actually I'm pretty sure my mate who is going to do the modeling for me was working of those images thanks.
