I am looking into building a couple of sea fairing forces.
Undead Pirates and Pirate Ogres and maybe a human ship aswell.
I would really like to find some boats for them in roughly the right scale.
Then I can use them for scenery, landing games and ship to ship games.

So,
Does anyone know where I can find some ships for use in WHFB games that are around the right scale?
And if possible, in the UK?

I dont know about buying them, but it doesnt take much effort to make one yourself, although it is quite time consuming. Alternatively, like me, you could try converting one of these: http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.collectobil.com/images/items/3750.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.collectobil.com/catalogue/items/3750.htm&usg=__VZLR1dfnWGAYfzIiEIV701OjKOs=&h=454&w=568&sz=98&hl=en&start=0&tbnid=VXWC3gau8vki_M:&tbnh=116&tbnw=144&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dplaymobil%2Bpirate%2Bship%26um%3D1%26 hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26rlz%3D1R2WZPC_enGB346%26biw%3D1 345%26bih%3D544%26tbs%3Disch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=672&vpy=99&dur=4025&hovh=201&hovw=251&tx=141&ty=120&ei=liVkTILmAYu7jAeMw52JCQ&oei=liVkTILmAYu7jAeMw52JCQ&esq=1&page=1&ndsp=24&ved=1t:429,r:4,s:0. Completely the wrong scale, but it's not so bad since you'll only be using the boat itself.

All teh links are dead but for the Worldworks one, for which I'd cast a vote too. I don't have it, but I built their castle, and it's kickass.
Also, if you're like me and you played with playmobils where you were a kid, try and find your pirate ship, it's a perfect fit :) (though it's a collector, I do not dare convert it into a proper warhammer ship, but on the other hand, it's not in pristine condition, so...). I actually used it in a scenario, once, and it is to be used again in a siege planned to be played in the next ten years.
