:salute: Having just purchased my 30th ship and seeing the poll on starter sets, I was wondering just how deep some of us have gone into Fleets for Sails. I am only interested in Official models so far.

I know my count isn't as high as Gunner's, but five starter sets is probably indicative of my addiction to the game. I'll be all set if/when Ares actually releases their 'Fleet Rules". :happy:

1 starter set and 4 extra ships is my lot for now. This is more due to my lack of expendable income to be honest. I will invest further if Ares move to the Tudor era without doubt.

Why does it only go up to 50 :question:
Way more than I can paint/customize/play with before my time is up (maybe not:pray:).
Either way, they will end up in good hands.:beer:

Five starter sets alone is a good fleet. But I know you have much more in reserve.

Like you, I'll be happy to see the Ares Fleet Rules. I also need to read and study , GMT's Blue Cross, White Ensign and Osprey's Fighting Sail-Fleet Actions more than I have.:drinks:

I have two complete Wave 1 sets (alla KS), and one Wave 2 set, with the KS exclusives and a few extras for repaints (eventually). Oh, and the Constitution and Victory. I haven't bought any of the Wave 1 new paints - sitting on the fence regarding the Spanish. I almost bought some of the ships I am selling for our FLGS, but withheld.

If there were some you really wanted, pull them out and send a check with the ships for the difference.:drinks:

Thank you, Ed, but it is no problem. I am waiting to broaden my collection with different types of ships than expanding with multiples of sculpts, though the price was tempting.

I doubt I will ever run games with more than a dozen or so ships, maybe up to 15. What I have, already, easily accommodates that. I am looking to widen the range of scenarios that I can run, and that requires different rates, especially toward the smaller end of the scale.

Kenneth made a point on another thread about the nature of the flag on any given ship. That factor has kept me holding off on the Spanish releases, especially given the pennant idea Jim (Nightmoss) developed last year. I think my collection will grow at the pace of releases reflecting different classes.

Whether or not I collect Spanish ships, when Ares produces the ST, I will order it.

Right Eric.
It is another of the iconic ships like the Orient, Constitution, and Victory.

1st Rates: 5 x French, 3 x British + 2 x Victory = 10
3rd Rates: 24 x Téméraires, 11 x Elizabeth/Edgar/etc., 1 x Duke razee = 36
5th Rates: 1 x Constitution, 1 x Indefatigable, 5 x 40 gun, 9 x 32/28 gun = 16
Unrated: 3 x Ship sloop, 1 x Brig = 4

Total of 66.

2 x Wrecks of Témérairs

This includes the KS ships and three starter sets.

I still believe I will stop short of 100, but it might be tight with at least two 50s (Leander & Leopard), ~2 64s and a few Meregildos and some more 74s, if they make the Santisima Trinidad one of those and then some merchants and pirates...

Uli kept me informed of the recent game between the U.S. and Germany with PMs after each goal. When I was young, I wanted to play soccer so much, but it was relatively non-existent. Now, it is quite popular, and the U.S. is starting to have home-grown players of decent quality.

I think that I have reached 50 but I do not own enough ship mats to put them all into play at once and extra ship mats are hard to obtain.

Gunner
07-12-2015, 23:37
To field that many, you might want to look for sea colored felt or some other material, not to mention use other than SOG rules, until Ares comes out with their promise fleet rules.:beer:

Naharaht
07-12-2015, 23:45
I do not think that I would want to put them all into play at once. I have bought a 3 metre length of blue leatherette table covering but by ship mats I actually meant the cardboard ship control mats.

Gunner
07-13-2015, 00:02
Ah so, now I understand.
I have an extra pack (SGN505A)which is 4 mats that you can have for the postage it would cost me to ship it to Norfolk:beer:

That is an incredibly generous offer, Ed, thank you very much. :salute: :hatsoff:Please do not be offended but I would like to decline your offer. I do own enough ship control mats for my immediate needs and the foreseeable future. My remark about them being hard to obtain was not a plea for some but more of a comment on the scarcity of accessories over here in Britain.

It takes someone trying to steal my beer, to offend me:beer:

I would guess the UK is the second largest buyer of SOG, WGF &S products, maybe someone should petition Ares to find a fee warehouse out there to cover European orders.:question:

Union Jack
07-14-2015, 05:25
I think there is only one Ares distributor for UK, who ships to all game shops in the UK. I would think it's as and when he/they stock up to distribute.

Having taken the plunge further I now have 20 official ships. I think enough for my requirements.

Bligh
07-14-2015, 08:29
I just ordered three of the cheap bargains with broken masts from the Oberst, so have now 33 ships. That means I will have one of each type to dis-mast as wrecks.
That should cover our needs between us for events Neil.

Interest isn't very strong here either. We have a small band of friends who play games together. Currently, I am taking them through WWII with WoG. We played some WGF and SoG, but for most of the folks, it is more of something fun to do with each other than any inherent interest in aviation or AoS. There is a wargame group that draws from several towns in an hour radius. I think they primarily focus on land-based minis, and another WWI aviation game.

Having Dutch relatives, I keep feeling that I have a desire there which needs scratching after the Spanish are out.
Then I look at what we did apart from Camperdown. Did the Dutch Fleet do any other large actions, or would I just be buying more ships to sit in harbour?

I passed on the KS for some reason...
Having played recently I have no idea what I was thinking.
Luckily most of the ships I desired were still in stock but are getting harder to find.

My collection is growing to 27 ships... More ships arriving this week (hopefully no delays)
I wanted around 3 ships of each rate... Couldn't fit more than 6 ships on my table as of now.

Considering a second core set... No reason other than I want a second large box and some ships for conversions.

I was so impressed with the Orient conversion to the USS Pennsylvania I couldn't help myself and order 2.
I will attempt a USS Pensylvania of my own.

My intention is to add a wash and some general rigging to each model... But if I don't get to this, each model is very nice out of the box.

Well Steve, I also passed on the KS too, even though I was a founder member of this site. I really just did not understand the concept of what KS was and have been kicking myself ever since.

(Afraid to try to get them into this, they're on limited budget and their "kids" are retired racing greyhounds, plus they live in a town way out in the middle of nowhere where old cops and their families go to be away from the world and take up fishing in retirement.)

British
1 First Rate
2 74 gun Third Rate
1 50 gun Fourth Rate
1 40 gun Frigate
2 32 gun frigates

French
Same mix

Short term goals: add a Third Rate, possibly a 64 gun, to both British and French. Beef up Spanish a bit.
Long Term: hope to see some more American frigates or even the post war ships of the line.

So, 16 ships (and one wreck because of carelessness combined with the ship not coming with the protective insert). Currently enough to have decent SotL or Frigate action without having to mix the two. Not sure I really need to go much beyond twenty ships as it stands. The nice thing about SoG is that the models tend to be fairly generic, unlike games such as Wings of Glory or X-Wing. You don't need the latest and greatest, and ships still pretty much function the same despite being built fifty years apart.

Yes have plenty of demasted ships (13 in total ) plus plenty of now extra maneuver decks and 13 ship bases . Yep I truly lost them in a storm . Now just looking for gamers in my area . Plan on taking my fleet out to the 2 local gaming stores to demo SOG this Saturday.

Gaming at a store is often a good way to get like minded people in your own area into the game Gordon.
The problem with Demo's at National shows is that although you may get recruits they are often from far flung places and don't help you to build up a local group of friends.

Gordon, what are you doing with the dismasted models, are they beyond repair?
If yes you can always make them into damaged/ sinking ships or sell them off to those who would

Plan on using my demasted ships as battle damaged ships. They are far beyond repair . Have not thought of selling them yet but might be up for offer if it's right . And on running Demo at my local gaming stores been running Demos and games at them for years . And so far got total of 12 people signed up . Will be post photos of the demo

Well my count now stands at 15 mixture of British French and American, waiting on the new releases of which I will get 4 of them probably taking my total to about 20, unless the release more American ships and cargo ships of which I will get at least 6.
