Does anyone know of a software or (easy) method for making various sized Sailing Ship counters viewed from the top down?

I want to make them for some miniature substitutes till we get the minis.

Check Google Images.

There is a copy of an overview of Wooden Ships and Iron Men, that has images of them on-line. Various rates are available, as well as a copy of the rules, but without the ship data and combat charts.

You can get Wooden Ships and Iron Men for $7 plus shipping from here.

Pirates of the Spanish Main singles are cheap and plentiful…

I don't know if it is still available, but the Trafalgar supplement by Phil Fry for Fire As She Bears 2nd edition includes full colour stand up ship counters that are really excellent.

For $4 that is a bargain.
