Completed one of the projects that I have planned for 2018 which was to build a fleet of ancient galleys. The ships are side view images glued to top down counters that are available from Tiny Tin Troops at link


More pictures on my blog at

Interesting. Where did you get the side views from?

Those look pretty good William. Worth all the delays getting them to you.

Tony, thanks for making the counters.

Most of the ships are resized Hotz Roman Seas ships. This site has several pages of images link under naval history/antique ships there are Roman, Carthaginian, and Hellenistic ships. Be careful as the descriptions do not always match the image. Others I found on the internet using Google Images and searching for galleys.

I used Paint Shop Pro to resize the images, made a duplicate and reversed it, then combined it with the original. I also used the program to remove sails from some of the images as they were not used in combat and to remove un-needed items from the Roman Seas ships. The Rams, Ravens, and Wrecks blog link also has pre-made images that only need to be folded, though I am not sure what scale they are.
