    I think your French POW had the right of it by the looks of the evidence.

    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.

    Thank you Roméo, but I intended to flag the ship as British to fight my USS Constitution.

    Just a blob of PVA painted brown after drying gives the visual efect at these small scales. Though on the Pyro model I used beads.

    Note there are no channel at all on this sculpt. I will have to add them in order to attach the ratlines.

    That reminds me that I still need to do the blocks at a slightly larger scale for the Carronade which I finished last year.

    A wee bit earlier than the Napoleonic age of sail but I am working on galleys of the Lepanto era. I got a box of these die cut wood galleys from Skull & Crown miniatures in trade for some 40k space marines.

    Painting before assembly. Note the neat smoke markers that fit nicely over the guns to denote they have fired. In the accompanying rules "Galleys, Guns and Glory" you have to roll to reload as it was not often done in these battles. Also the little galley with the squares is used to hold damage dice for the large galley or lanterna command ship in the foreground.

    I've decided that I need a lugger. I downloaded the top picture for sail shape. The hull will be a modified Alligator.

    I have the courses cut out. Next up, cutting out the topsails, then the masts and yards.

    That will be pretty cool Dobbs. What are you doing for the masts? Will they be scratch built?

    Yes Vol, the masts will be scratch built. I use carbon fiber rod and crazy glue. I think it's interesting how the topmasts of the fore and main are on backwards.

    I noticed that on the first lugger I built a long while back, a Langton.
