I just pulled out of the lead pile a box of medieval ships that I had started to paint literally decades ago. I labeled the box '1/2000 medieval ships' at the time but now I can't remember who made them and google has failed me. I assume they are long out of production but does anyone remember who made a range of 1/2000 medieval ships somewhere in the 80's, 90's, 00's?

Valiant Miniatures makes a range of 1/2000 sailing ships, but they're from the 1700-1800 era, although they include Mediterranean galleys.


They also produce a range of Spanish Main 1/1200th Scale Ships.

Yup, I have a whole lot of the Valiant 1/2000 sailing ships, but these medieval ships I"m looking at are definitely not Valiant.

I've never heard of 1/2000 Medieval ship miniatures. They would be really tiny. Even the largest Medieval ships were pretty small compared to Napoleonic ships, and you can see how small the Valiants are.

Photos would probably help.

You may be looking at Hallmark Miniatures 2400 scale Armada ships, still available from Magister Militum.

I'd really like to see a range of medieval ships for the HYW in 1/2400…cogs et al. Anyone know if such a thing exists?

While on the subject, I'd really like to see some medieval cogs etc in 1/1200 or 1/600 if anyone has any suggestions for that size as well.

I seem to remember it was the same company that did the multi part 25mm, Lamming I think!!

Outpost Wargaming Services do a few cogs and galleys in 1/1200, they are the mainstays of the fleets I built to use with "Lord of the Sea".
Navwar do a few as well

Lamming did tiny cogs as an accessory to their medieval campaign rules. They are still available from ERM (East Riding Miniatures). I have two types – the ships are the same but some have a cast on sea base and others don't.

Ahh right, photos would indeed be helpful. It took me three days to figure out how to post pics, lets see if it works. Here are the ships I have:

Those photos are tiny, so it's hard to tell much about the models, but the top photo looks just like my 1/1200 Navwar Renaissance galleys, and I might also have some of those longboats in the third photo. The others are certainly in the Navwar style, but I think Davco once made similar items, so I might be wrong about the specific manufacturer in the second and fourth photos.

Thanks Yellow Admiral, that sounds right. There are no photos on the Navwar website but the few pics that showed up in a google search do look like some of the ships I have. So I got both the scale and period wrong in my label from decades ago! But now I have a new period to paint and play. :-)

The left ship on the fourth photo, with the castle amidship, is a Navwar 1/1200 large byzantine dromon. Pretty cool models!
