Hi all, I finished my first pedestal for ships. The fleet is composed of ten warships of the French navy in the early nineteenth century from Langton miniatures, scale 1/1200: one 120 guns, five 74 guns, two 64 guns and two frigates. The color scheme used is redish ocher and black. The sails are "all plain sail"
The base is made DM.
Sea is made with pulp paper, barnish and painted with diferent tones of blue. ( work made with brush)

I hope you like it!
Best regards,

Very very nice.

Just for the record though you will not find historic battles where both French 120's and French 64's were present (on the same side). Except for the occasional capture from minor navies the 64 had been phased out of French service by the time the first 120's took sail around 1790.

But again, very nice as always.
