Back in May, I posted a tutorial on the building of cheap cardboard models of Sam Bellamy's first commands, the Sloop Marianne and Sultana Gally. As part of my efforts to complete my ship-building project, I recently put the finishing touches on these two. I failed to keep up with my step-by-step photo documentation, but I described the process at the bottom of this post.

Here is the Marianne, the small French sloop that Benjamin Hornigold awarded to Bellamy, making him a captain for the first time.

Nice work.

Those are pretty great. Faithful, yet still lots of room for figures to get into brawls. Lots of fun details.

thanks all! I'm also excited to try these out. I haven't made a single mini for these ships yet though, so it will be a while! I'm already purchased a bunch though, planning for.foeces for English, French, Spanish, and pirates
