Product Information

Mutiny on the Buenaventura! Boarding Party Action is a ship’s crew attack set. Be they mutineers, pirates, hostile islanders, or navy men, these rogues are unstoppable. Included are 32 poses for attackers, defenders, and passengers. Featured is Faveral’s incomparable San Buenaventura merchant ship. Also included is an extra 9-pose set of the quarterdeck surrender ensemble, for the mid-deck and 13 utility poses for resetting hands and props. A flintlock pistol and musket to arm your crews are provided free, courtesy of Questor. All poses will position the boarders & defenders in precise locations, as shown. Thirty-two of the poses can be used in one scene. Deckhands can be easily relocated about the ship. See the ReadMe. Many of the crew poses can be combined with the Merchant Crew Action poses without collisions. Those that occupy the same area can be moved around. The Caravel was developed by the Portuguese around 1450 as an ocean-going trade vessel. Its triangular lanteen sail at the stern allowed it to better sail into the wind. The caravel’s shallow draft allowed it to sail in coastal waters as well as up some of the larger rivers. It was the standard European merchant ship design a few hundred years, sailing on three oceans and more than seven seas. It was of course, a favorite target of pirates. Only you can decide the fate of the San Buenaventura. Boarding Party Action is a ship’s crew attack set. Be they mutineers, pirates, hostile islanders, or navy men, these rogues are unstoppable.

Boarding Party Action by Don Albert

1. All sailors were posed in bare feet. Wooden ship sailors preferred to work on deck and aloft barefooted for better traction and grip. Adjust for footwear.

2. All poses can be used in one scene without collision. Figures can be moved around for variety and to add more of the same kind of activity, like climbers.

3. All poses were designed around the default loading positions of the ship. Topmen poses work best and are more visible with no sails and furled sails. Full sails can be used with adjustments only to a few to posed sailors.

4. To create additional poses of topmen in the rigging, use the symmetry function in DAZ Studio to switch arms and legs. Also rotate and reposition sailors. Some adjustments may be necessary as the shroud lines angle inward and rungs decrease in space from bottom to top.

5. There are two sets of the surrender ensemble of poses, one on the quarterdeck and one on the middeck. This is an example of repositioning crew and boarder poses. The middeck set will collide with a few other poses on that deck so other figures may need to moved around to accommodate.

6. Poses are designed with the Genesis 2 Michael 6 body. Other character bodies may require adjustments. An easy way to use other figures is to load the Genesis 2 Male figure and apply the Michael 6 Body morph, then apply the face/head of another Genesis 2 Male character. Likewise for Victoria 6.

7. The Harpers Ferry pistol and Charlesville musket that are included, are smart-props. Apply them to the Loader Poses or directly to any of the armed sailors. Utility poses are included for resetting those weapons if needed.
