Chibi-Maru model shipsPosted: December 10, 2015
The Chibi-Maru model warships are similarly exaggerated, having short, rotund hulls with short barrels on the main and secondary armament but relatively realistically-sized superstructures. They can be constructed as full-hull or waterline models, and are about 10cm in length … ideal for use with Hexon II blue hexes!
Although they are not going to be to many people’s taste (and certainly not to those who like their models to be 100% accurate), they appeal to me, and I can see them being used to represent heavy naval units that are providing offshore support in a wargame … somewhat akin to my own attempts at such models.
The main thing that is stopping me from buying any is their price in the UK … which is between £15.00 to £35.00 each, including postage and packing from Japan. Still there is nothing to stop me from copying the idea and making my own Chibi-Maru-style of ships.
