I don't know if this is more Mission Discussion or Historical, but I was thinking a series of threads on the historical OrBats for major engagements, with notes on existing or announced-as-planned sculpts and questions about the stumbling points on my research for future sculpts, might help us brainstorm for future waves.

So, let's start at the Big Kahuna...

Either a Bucentaure or Tonnant can pass for the other; Jacques-Noel Sane designed both and designed Bucentaure as a Tonnant with a few improvements from previous builds' lessons-learned.
Hortense is an evolution of Virginie, another pair of Sane designs. Virginie is credited by some sources as a development of the Hebe-class, confirmed for release in Wave 2.

1. Cross-check on Revenge possible Temeraire heritage? Revenge is almost identical statistically to the RN's rearmed and refitted Temeraires, and Conqueror is similar in stats--these are definitely a thing where visual comparisons, whether blueprints and draughts or artwork or just already-built accurate models, are required.

Anybody know how to tweak column widths for Tables, BTW? And what's a good maximum width? Bear in mind, my own usual screens I view the forum on are 1024x600 and 1440x900 (17" laptop screen FTW!:) ), so "just whatever fits my screen" is a bad comparison.
