Hi guys. I found the rules for Warhammer Ahoy! recently so me and a friend are going to try out the rules at out next club meet. In order to do that, we need some boats, so I've started work on mine. Dark Elves FTW!
Here are the first two I've made. I haven't come up with names for them yet, but according to the rules they are classed as a 'Small' and a 'Medium' The larger of the two will have oars as well as a sail.
Here you can see how I'm going about building the boats. layers of foam board glued together and skinned in thin card. To finish them off I'm going to get some balsa wood and covered them with that. Masts and sails are the next job though.
Here you can see the internal structure of the large ship. In order to save foam board, I spaced the layers out. Next job is to skin it with card like I've done on the first.
Ha, nice work! The idea of Dark Elves on boats... Actually, the idea of any Warhammer race on boats is kind of appealing.
So I may hang around and watch how this idea develops. Good luck with the boat building!
Hey guys. I've managed to build a 3rd boat, and me and a friend tried out the rules for Warhammer Ahoy. AND I manged to capture it on video. so here it is. The madness that is my first online bat rep

The next one will be better, I promise.
I found these while cruising around the internet, and they've given me some really cool ideas
Large ship idea
Huge ship idea
I'm currently working on the large ship, and I'm going to add a ram and the statue of Khaine. I'm also tempted to put a cauldron of blood on the Quarter deck (That's the bit of the Main deck but behind the main mast. )
This looks like a lot of fun, if I had a WFB army, I'd definitely want to try this.
Your ships as well as your friend's look great, and the inspirational picture is very sweet too. Good luck and post updates of your fleet
Sometimes I think the Dark Elves take things too far. I mean, that boat looks like it even has blades on the oars! Gotta give them points for consistency, though.
A shame you didn't do so well in your first battle, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time!
Just a quick update for today. No pictures I'm afraid.
Yesterday I went out an bought some balsa wood and some dowel. The balsa wood has been soaking over night so I can bend it with ease. As soon as the boats have been skinned in card, then balsa wood will be glued over the top.
I've also started cutting out shapes for the Large boat, which will be equipped with a ram, sails and oars. I'm tempted to call it the Wailing Doom, as the figure head is going to be a statue of Khaine.
Also an feedback on the bat-rep would be good; what you liked what sucked and how to make it better
Cheers for the feedback guys
With the battle report I thought it was a little difficult to get a sense of what was happening, as you were only showing the results of a turn sequence. Perhaps (once you're comfortable with the rules and don't have to be figuring it out as you go along!) filming one or two actual turns might add a little to the report.
I can completely understand not filming each and every turn, it would be inconvenient and might not be that interesting to watch. But maybe show a movement phase somewhere, film a charge/ram between boats and the ensuing combat, something like that... while still doing the end-of-turn summaries to tie everything together.
Does that sort of make sense?
