These model ships are designed to be played with Imhotep: Builder of Egypt Private Ships Mini-Expansion, 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!
The private ships expansion include 1-block ships, which replace the cardboard tokens that come with the game. Each model has a unique figure-head on the bow (front) of the ship which includes common Egyptian hieroglyphs.
These ships are available in a light brown 'Reed Ship Brown' color OR Player Colors (Black, White, Grey and Brick Red) - CHOOSE IN OPTIONS - these colors are EXCLUSIVE to lbStudios and MeepleForge.
Choose whether you want 4 PLAYERS (4 standard ships) or 6 PLAYERS (6 ships for 5/6 players) - or upgrade your existing set with the 6 PLAYER UPGRADE for the additional player 5 & 6bships (2 pieces).

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!
Before painting, ensure that models are clean of any excess resin or trim and sand any additional filament that may be left over from the manufacturing process.
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 these ships are designed to fit/work with the original 15mm blocks** provided in the game:
- 1 block ship: 53mm (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 size 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!

These private barges for the Imhotep game mini-expansion continue the consistently high level of product quality provided by the people at Little Block Studios. The 3D print detail with respect to the reed texture of the boats and the unique hieroglyph on each boats prow is typical of the level of care & attention this vendor demonstrates with all of their products. If you want to enhance your gaming experience, bling it out, and impress your friends, you cannot do any better than these ships and the other gaming accessories provided by this Etsy vendor. The shipping is super fast and the order status/progress was well communicated throughout. I highly recommend this vendor.

Perfect addition to our Imhotep game, which matches perfectly with the player markers we purchased last year. Also, lightning fast shipping! Kudos!
