1/2000 Napoleonic Sail by Valiant


Good day to all. I finished the 1/2000 Napoleonic Ship project. And just in time, as I got a heavy teaching duty job which will probably not leave much time for miniatures for a year.

Below find some pictures of the ships. The back of the bases on the white label contains slots for indicating if a ship is on fire,  how many masts it has lost, its rate, and a unique indetifier. The flags can be changed permitting a lot of possible scenarios.


All of the ships



A 3rd rate sporting Russia colors


A 2nd rate sporting British colors


A 3rd rate sporting Royalist French colors


A mighty first rate with full sails, sporting Russian colors


Another first rate sporting Royalist French colors


A third rate sporting Revolutionary French colors 


A frigate sporting Revolutionary French or Napoleonic French colors


A mighty 1st rate sproting British colors


Two more 3rd rates sporting post-Royalist French colors 



Another 3rd rate sporting British colors.

A minor quibble, sir. Unlike with more modern prop-driven ships whose flags stream to the rear, with wind-driven sailing ships, flags stream in the direction of travel (not to the rear).

So, for me, I'd rather see the flags stream the other way . . . but that's just a quibble and most wouldn't notice it OR be bothered if they did.
