  • SGN and Langton miniatures Ratlines

    Due to lack of other means to add ratlines to the SGN ships I have used the brass etched ratlines used by 1/1200 modellers from Langton miniatures.

    The following is a list of ratlines best suited for our ships

    note not perfect fit as they are for a different scale and model and some do need cutting down and others need strategic placing and angling, but they do enhance once in place.
    For them to work and look the part you will need to paint the fighting tops black and be prepared to come down the mast a couple of rings so the ends do not show up.
    In the next week or so I will add another thread showing how I use the ratlines and how to place.

    In the meantime

    Ares pack. Langton part number

    SGN101. PE6
    SGN102. PE1
    SGN103 PE6
    SGN104 PE1
    SGN105 PE4
    SGN106 PE2 and PE9 Use the PE9 for the centre mast, then use PE2 to fill up using the ratlines for one mast lower, ie Main mast ratlines now go on foremast, foremast use on mizzen mast, or top of main mast, which ever takes your preference and looks right.
    One set of PE9 thus gives the centre set of ratlines for two ships
    SGN107 PE10
    SGN108 PE2 and PE9 same as SGN106
    SGN109 PE3
    SGN110 PE4
    SGN111 PE1
    SGN112 PE1
    SGN113 PE3/4
    SGN114 PE6
    SGN115 PE2
    SGN116 cant say, not got this model so dont know.
    If anyone has questions feel free to ask but to show what they look like here are some of my ships rigged and ratlined.

    Rob, what brand are the walls and towers you are using? Is it from Brigade Models? What quality do they have? I would like to make a small medieval town

    I think it is a brilliant idea to add to your already wonderful work.
    I am now thinking how I can build the careening process into one of my scenarios.
