I forgot where I bought these resin ships.

Smaller boat = 6"x 2-1/4"
Larger boat = 9-1/4" x 3-1/2" includes mast, anchors and swivel guns

Reminds me of the old Old Glory castings.

My thought was Old Glory as well, but looking at the (at least current) catalog, doesnt match anything.

I also hope someone can ID as they are very nice and would get some myself.

The 4 gun large ship sure looks like this one from Old Glory,
"4 gun ship ID: OGP-40"

A check of the stern details should do the trick.

If not, it's gosh darn close.

Nah the details and sculpting are crisper on his by a little bit. Look at the very front. There's no platform on the OG, and on this one that front vertical curving beam is very sharp in that area. Sorry not great with terms.

But you are right it is very close.

Per @Ninefingers on LAF and from what photos I can find, it looks like Games of War.

Stylistically these remind me of the resin castings that were done for "Pirates!" rules (maybe 30 yrs. ago).

@khanscom -- I have the ships from Flagships Games' "Pirates!" game. These are not those.

I have the top one, bought at a UK show from the manufacturer years ago. 'Games of War' does ring bells but can't be sure it was them. Very nice guy and his wife, really helpful but haven't seen him at shows for a while.

Confirmed, they're from Games of War.
