These ships are designed to extend the play of Imhotep: Builder of Egypt, by adding additional reed ships for a 5th and 6th player, and are the most realistic representations of the Imhotep Ships available and make the board come alive in a way that the flat card ships can't achieve!
This set includes FOUR additional 5 and 6 block reed ships and TWO additional sleds that allow you to include more people around the gaming table!
- 2x 5-block capacity reed ships
- 2x 6-block capacity reed ships
- 2x 5 block capacity player sleds
Want to know how to play with 5 and 6 players? These rules were first published by Hazerlorb on BoardGameGeek and can be found here:
Together with these ships you can now also purchase the 30 wooden quarry blocks (15mm wooden blocks) for both 5 and 6 players! The 5th player blocks are stained using a water-based Aqua blue. The 6th player quarry blocks are finished using a natural water-based clearcoat which turns them a light sand color.
SELECT which BLOCK and SLED COLORS and ships you'd like in the OPTIONS.
Got questions? Want more blocks? Want blocks in a custom color or want your ships with a specific design? GET IN TOUCH and we'd be more than happy to help!
PAINTING & FINISHING YOUR MODELS
These game pieces have been printed using a hi-resolution resin polymer 3D printer - which allows us to create models that are more detailed than those created on filament printers using ABS or PLA plastic.
The models can be used right from the box and placed on the board for immediate gaming! However, to create the ultimate gaming experience they can also be painted and finished to provide an even MORE detailed and customized finish!
As with any other hi-res plastic gaming model, we recommend first applying a primer coat before using acrylic or enamel based paints. GET IN TOUCH for more information on painting guides and styles or FOLLOW US on our social media channels for more tips!
Designed by our UK production partner MeepleForge, these models are exclusively available to purchase in the USA, Canada and the Americas through lbStudios.
All of the original ships are designed to fit/work with the original 15mm blocks** provided in the game - these to additional ships work in similar dimensions, but as were not part of the original game:
- 5 block ship: 53mm (l) x 25mm(h) x 27mm (w)
- 6 block ship: 70mm (l) x 25mm(h) x 27mm (w)
** We can scale these ships to any size - please let us know if you would like a different scale or custom ship design.

Here at littleblokes we like making bird houses, feeders and outdoor furniture that is designed to stay out in the extreme weather - we use external paint, glues n' screws: stains, finishes and materials.
However - over time all of our products will 'weather', and bird feeders may be worn down over time by a constant barrage-of-beaks.
Whilst we cannot offer a return or full refund for a weathered item - we do appreciate our loyal customers, if you would like to replace an existing item - just let us know and we'll give you a 20% discount coupon before you buy!
There are four types of finishes available.
Shiny finish with patina: this gives the prints a blackened look, only the numbers and letters are black, not the whole piece.
Shiny with no patina: this gives the piece an understated look, there is no black on the piece at all.
Matte finish with patina: this gives the piece a more contemporary look, while still looking understated and the patina makes the prints stand out.
Matte finish with no patina: a very simple but contemporary, understated look.
Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% composed of other metals, usually copper.
They look the same, wear and polish the same, but fine silver is more "pure" and is, therefore, more costly and often considered more desirable than sterling.
Fine silver also uses recycled silver, so it is eco-friendly too!

For the experienced board gamer, the Imhotep game is quite a favorite. But if you want your games ambience to be enhanced and the overall bling value to be off the charts, you need to purchase the ships, sleds and other expansion accessories available from Little Bloke Studios. The 3D printed objects have a very high level of quality and the orders are process with a customer relationship second to none. The shipping was super fast and I highly recommend your augmenting your Imhotep game to the next level with these items. Particular for the 5/6 player expansion rules.
