    Yes Rob, I agree, a little investigation and quite a few items are about for printing.
    If required the My Mini site has some “Generic” models instead of specific ships, all of which could be used, but for now named types are doing well enough.

    Hi Vol, the company selling the Mars are called “saturnaliastudios” part of their Trafalgar range. This is not an exhaustive collection though.

    That looks like a good compromise.
    How much was that one?
    Rob.
    It's listed at $70 USD on the Firelock site but there's a good game store in Toronto (Meeplemart) that has great prices. I got the tartana from Meeplemart for $67 CAD. Don't ask my how Meeplemart does that but their prices are great across all product lines and their service is excellent too. They are my first shopping stop for kit.

    Thanks Chris.
    We can never get enough ship's boats.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Now for my sins, here are a few shots of the labour intensive and now completed port of Dubrovnic.

    Thanks are due to both Paul and Anthony for the Rep and comments which they have sent to me.
    Many thanks chaps. Now I can concentrate on my ship painting ready for the May Workbench.

    Sorry I'm a little late but there is some outstanding work on the April Workbenches.
    The Bounty looks great, Paul your ships are wonderful and Rob your Dubrovnik is just superb. The printed ships are little marvels as are the Warlord ones as well.
    Some very inspirational work, thanks to you all.
    Cheers

    Hi John.
    Thank you for your kind remarks and also for the Rep.
    I hope to be able to Rep you back soon for another of your stirling Jon Vagabond adventures.
    Now that Dubrovnic/ Ragousa is off the workbench and on the table I'm hoping to get back to gaming myself pretty soon.

    Nice! To work with Ares those models should be 54mm long on LGD.

    Does anyone have a source on no-sails masts, preferably one-piece units, in 1/1000? I have some of Henry's prints with his hulls but I'm thinking bare yards with thinner paper sails might be better.

The two pinnnaces, Bredamme and Franeker, are flagged for the VOC. The Wassenaar belonged to the Admiralty of the Maas, so I've given it the Rotterdam flag as its home flag. The Zierikzee has the flag for that city (red with a black lion). There's no reason I've given the VOC ships orange for the national flag. I just wanted some with the earlier version.

    impressive Paul! The ships and total fleet look awesome, My family originates from Franeker so nice to see a ship named after the town.

    I thought you would like these Lex. The Franeker connection is just a bonus I did not know about.

    That’s cool, Lex. Glad you liked the ships. I should replay the Goa battle but I’ve been waiting for the complete Mad for War rules to be published.
