Leviathans: Convention Fun With Big Ships

As if there wasn’t enough reasons to be excited about this convention season, I get to do something I’ve not been involved with in a very long time…create some new, cool eye candy for the Catalyst Game Labs booth to go along with the game.

With Leviathans closer and closer to launching, we’re making a big push of games played for both Origins and Gen Con. What’s more, we’re creating eye candy to draw people to the booth to check the game out. A few months back we contacted Behrle Hubbuch to build us two large-scale ship models to drag people into playing a demo whether they wish it or not…”can’t…resist…awesome…models!”

Below is Doug’s brilliant full-color illustration for the Grenouille-class French Destroyer, along with J. Lonnee’s orthographic based on Doug’s work.

Here’s a photo of a test shot miniature (un-painted, without a base)…

And here’s a work in progress for the ship Behrle’s constructing (it’s roughly two feet long).

When I’ve got photos of it painted and weathered, I’ll provide those…thought it may need to wait until after Origins…just have to wait and see…and just wait until I get in the photos of the 4-foot long Leviathan-class British battleship…

See ya next duty shift…
