I decided to stock some sails of Glory for the 2018 convention season to supplement my large selection of WW1 Wings of Glory.

So I noticed that most ships tended to be either built around the American Revolution or after 1785 for the Napoleonic Wars. Which era would you regard as the most commonly played. Thanks

I know its not quite your question – but I would love to see a Great Lakes version.

To your question – Napoleonic Wars are played most often with groups I game with

Rudy, I have always leaned toward Napoleonic/War of 1812.

Disaster, if you don't mind doing some paper modeling War Artisan has a comprehensive line of Great Lakes warships in 1/300 scale. They make excellent models.

Definitely the Napoleonic era. Admittedly my least favorite period in age of sail.

Sails of Glory is essentially for the Napoleonic wars. a few of the ships were built in the 1760s. 2 of the new series are ex-merchantmen including the Bonhomme Richard which of course saw action in the AWI. However most of the ships were built and saw action after the AWI.

Thanks so I will stock the later ships first.
