While finishing my current wip Napoleonic French, I remembered that almost two years ago I started collecting and painting miniatures for the Trafalgar ruleset.
Unfortunately back then no one was interested in Napoleonic naval battles so my interest in that aspect of Napoleonic warfare soon dissipated after painting a couple of minis.
The minis are by Langton miniatures and the scale is 1:1200. I highly recommend Langton minis to anyone interested in this period. I believe that they have the best miniature ships in the market!
The rigging was difficult to get right but it really makes the models look good so its worth the extra effort!!
All of the ships are British but I have long forgotten their classification. I think one of them is a first rate while the rest are 2nd rates... I have to double check though...
First the second rate ships:
As you can see the first rate ship is the largest to the left and still needs a lot of work. The 2nd rate next to it only needs the rigging done and it will be complete. Once I get these things done I should put some flags one them!
Now, if only I could get the guys from my club to join in :) Robert? Matt? Giovanni?
