    Very nice Jonas!!

    Most of my Napoleonic collection is 15mm, except for the 1815 armies for the 100 days in 6mm. ( I can no longer see that scale to paint it!)

    Interesting. The really exciting news would be if Warlord released the ships in smaller quantities like the Cruel Seas boats - 1 or 2 models. I don't need 6 cutters for example. That said Henry's...

    Funded with stretch goal 64 yay! :happy:

    I am not really collecting at the moment (space issues) but I could certainly chip in for the .Stl files for later use. Of course looking at Henry's collections, those Gilded Age ships would be nice...
