    The 24's--no plans except 1777 Boston, but I'll add any I find here and welcome any help. I'm skeptical of the short lengths and high length/beam ratios for Deane and Connecticut, so I'm breaking...

    Possible, but I'm really hoping to get Pomone and the Endymions their own separate sculpt. :) Here again, we need two names per flag even though I'm going to suggest breaking that rule by doing Essex...

    Dobbs, that's on the table as an option, but I'd really prefer to see a blueprint first--24-pounders were planned for a followup post (which just got turned into this one), as were 9-pounder...

    The Captain/Crew Ability Decks were also available in the site store at BoardGameGeek. Each deck was four complete sets of cards, and IIRC I bought or KS'ed eight decks to have one for each KS/Wave 1...

    American Frigates

    Between the Naval Action forum (they stole my Stretching Sculpts content here, so I feel fair-game returning the favor) and a few other places, I've started putting together data and drawings trying...

    I'd say take Essex down to Veer 7, but other than that it's ready for the Stats Committee to start testing. If I'm wrong about the live oak, no biggie, we just take off one of the rear boxes. :) The...

    Again, take that with a grain, this is more "closest available proxy right now." Post particular ship requests in the Stats Committee and I'll trawl the data to see what we can come up with as a...

    Dobbs, I went Concorde for Insurgente because the two classes were drawn up in response to the same Marine Ministry specification, rather like the A-9 vs A-10, F-16 vs YF-17 and F-22 vs YF-23...

    Off the top of my head, for the moment I would just use an unmodified SGN103 straight from the box as an American 12pdr 32. American shipbuilding techniques were largely just iterating on English...

    To elaborate, the overpower on Spanish ships is serious. The numbers on the Nepomucenos assume a 36#/24# or 36#/18# LD/UD load, but most of the time Spanish 74's only packed 24#'s on the LD and 18's...

    If I had my way, I'd kickstart us by having Ares partner with Rod Langton and basically mirror his entire catalog, then build out from there.
