Over the last years the Mitgardian League has started to become the leading organization in trading the oceans. The workhorse ship conducting all this trade is the cog, a type of ship developed along the long and cold coast of Mitgardia. One of those cogs is the Lady Emma, a 150 ton trader travelling along the western shores. She may look somewhat chunky and not very agressive, but she's a reliable craft and well protected by some Mitgardian crossbow men.

Everybody sing: Rule Mitgardia, Mitgardia rules the Seas!!

Nice one!!

Great detailing! If I hadn't had my glasses or contacts on and you said it was made of real wood, I would believe you! :thumbup:

Nice Cog design, and I especially like the use of the old bow and stern pieces. Well, seeing as to that I have lots of those piece, I may humbly seek to borrow and modify your shape for the East Mitgardian's Trading Company's trading fleet? Of course, I will credit you in the design, and I won't put them as entries for the mini-challenge as it wouldn't be fair to you! They would look good to beef up my in-progress full scale Hykerbia city and port though!

Nice Cog!  I really like the use of burlap/cloth for the sails - it adds a lot of character.  I too like the hull pieces.  Nice job!

@DM: thanks man, it really took all the brown and dark sand tiles I had too achieve the woodish look, I'm glad you like it
@Hersbrucker: Cogs usually had closed decks, and I based this ship quite a good deal on the Bremen Cog of 1380
@TR: Well, you're the one who actually inspired me to build a cog in the first place! So go ahead and borrow, If you wanne make it look like a cog though, you have to make sure that the stem is really straight:

And here is how I achieved it:

@roughang: thanks. The cool thing about the prefab hulls is that they have this clinker planked kinda look. Pretty odd for pirate ships but just right for Cogs. BTW, the sail is a piece of cotton stained in a cup of coffee  :classic: the credits for this go to evil willy of the pirates forum, where you can find some nice sail making tutorials!

It turned out to be a great Mitgardian ship! You did a great job on the bow!
