The collection of 1:700th models has been added to by some new additions designed to start to plug some gaps for games planned, and with one specific group of ships in mind, the British razee types of cut down 64-gun and 74-gun third-rates modified specifically to counter the larger frigates of the French and later American navies.

The recent Warlord Black Seas additions now enable both types of razee to be modelled and make a really great addition to the collection.

More outstanding work. Are the masts for these interesting models made of metal or plastic?

Hi and thank you, The masts are from the plastic frigate sprue which is supplied with the resin hull, likewise they supply a third rate sprue to use the masts and bowsprit for the larger fourth rate razee.

It does mean you end up with unused third and fifth rate hulls and I am planning to scratch build some mast sets for them, either that or use some 3D options.

Napoleonic Wargamer on YouTube couple days ago was putting together a printed ship using sails and rigging.
Finishing 100 Days which might be my last Aubrey and Maturin stories has got me quite interested into sailing war games.

Hi chaps,
Re floating batteries and prison hulks, more likely the former than the latter as I have some cutting out scenarios that I'm keen to do and they are the sort of obstacles that would be a likely threat.

Thanks for the YouTube heads up, I'll have a look, and O'Brian can definitely do that in terms of firing the imagination. Enjoy, age of sail naval gaming is a fun corner of the hobby with lots of ways to explore the history.
