Wow sweet!!! Were did you get them from?

I printed them. I got the STL file from Wargame Vault (link in post). This a great set of 3D models, totally worth the pittance they asked for it only 5 bucks!

very nice. I used the same set of files to create everything from triremes up to tens in 1:1200 scale by adjusting the length and number of towers on the ships. Warfleets of Antiquity by Wargames Research Group provides information on ship dimensions with galleys ranging in length from 120 to 140 feet..

Wow! Nice STL printouts! I've been toying with the idea of sculpting, and making molds for, some fantasy ship models, from a book published by Mongoose Games, several years ago. Creating STL files would be the preferred method, but that is a cornucopia of learning that would set me back in time, to the point where it would never happen.

They are all sail and ore powered, with siege weapons. Except, of course, for the Elves, who seem to have mastered harnessing Air and Water Elementals, to drive their ships. Personally, I would prefer the Elves to rely upon the wind, to keep things balanced.

There are no ship battle rules written, with magic as another arsenal, so I would need to write my own. I thought I could base them on the 2e BattleSystem rules, published back in 1989 -- it would be easier for players to learn if it is based on a familiar rules set.

Have too many projects already in my queue, in various stages of completion, but your post reminded me of my desire to move forward with the fantasy ship project… Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

Hey, Waco, what kind of bases are those? They look great.
