Just a small entry regarding what ships I am using, basing, and some rules ideas:

Good luck with it. I have gone the opposite way and collected 15mm Sea Eagle ships from Thoroughbred for the battle. Another option is the War Artisan line of paper ships in 1/300 scale. I have to say that the schooners must be awfully small at 1/2400 scale! I do agree that the one piece casting does have its benefits though.

Every time I go to the Perry's Victory Memorial, I am always inspired to want to undergo a project like your. Good luck with your endeavors.

This really whip up nice. I have all of Erie (and othrers) done, decked out with Langton crew. I am very happy with them.

Good luck!

Junior General has a great set of really simple rules and paper ships which you can download and print out on cardstock.

Boats loads of easier… ahem… just saying

I've enjoyed paying some single ship actions using them.
