Hello gentlemen

Just a new section in my collections, in fact I'd always dreamed of using minis for the old Avalon Hill game "TRIREME" (of which the 1st edition, btw, dates back to 1973 : it was already an old game when I noticed it around 1989…)

So, here are the minis. On the downside, they are grossly inaccurate (that stern…). On the upside, they are dirt cheap : 6$ for the STL files for my 3D printer, I could not resist especially since a 1/600 galley mini comes at around 9=

Both fleets, Persians with green highlights, Greeks with purple ones :



close up of a sample of the fleets : you got 3 different galley types for the lot, so I picked one for the Greeks and another one for the Persians. The latter have towers on their deecks, the former have none. (together with the differend highlight colours, this will help ageing sight wargamers to tell who's who from a gaming distance (*sigh*)



and various shots of the results. All in all, not too unpleasant to play with :

Nice. How do they size up? You mentioned 1/600, but the actual size (I've got a handful of the laser cut wood ones that were available a couple of years ago, but that are no longer sold, so I'd be interested in 3D ships that I could print to fill out the fleets. Thanks.

Look good to me – and I agree that no one should quibble about the stern!

Triremes are 6 cm long, 18mm wide
Quinqueremes are 7cm long, 25 mm wide
Biremes are 4cm long, 13 mm wide

Can you give a link to the seller please.

Brilliant, the eyes really work.

Those look great – I've always been tempted by ancient galley warfare and always wanted to recreate the siege of syracuse….

I have a 3d printer, so its not a lot to try them out and see what they look like….
