    Looking for Nautical Miniatures

    Does anyone recall a miniature game in the early 90s that used resin cast sail driven boats? They were scaled for the 25mm crew and canons (which were metal cast). I've tried some web searches but haven't come across anything. I did find one site that had boats similar but the scale did not look right. Anyway, if someone could point me in a direction of something similar I would appriciate it.

    Thanks

    Can't guarantee that he'll know, but I will see if anyone from my tabletop group knows about this game.

    I remember some boats like that but not any game that used them. I though them more than a touch pricey. I remember the boats being cast foam resin, not the solid (and heavy) stuff.

    Likely we are speaking of the same thing, if I recall they were a bit pricy. As far as being made for a game, I always assumed they were as I saw them used with the same set of rules at multiple cons back then. However its possible they were just the conveinent model of the day. Someone (on another forum) had given me a link to something like them once, but that link has since died.

    The ships did have removable decks, and I believe wooden masts. Id really like to find something like them, even if it is an oop that I can pull a pattern from.

    I'd love to help. I have seen wooden no glue flat pack models. No idea who makes them. I think there was a ship among the buildings. There are paper models; some truly nice ones too. Those are inexpensive to buy but time consuming to make. If you want they can be improved with other materials.

    I scratch my own.

    You might try World Works. http://www.worldworksgames.com/store...products_id=27

    I am most fond of their stuff. It is made for the 25/32mm minis we all know and love. It is a piece I ahve wanted to buy, but my campaign is so far removed from any body of water remotely suited for a boat of this stature.

    That was the one I was thinking of. I couldn't remember the name.

    Yeah, it's on sale. But I already bought like three of their sets in the past few weeks and have yet found time to even unzip any of them. But maybe after Christmas when money is not so tight. I still have kids that NEED presents. And not the inexpensive Barbie and Tonka stuff. NO, I need to by guitar amplifiers, and Iphones.

    Yeah, for the last couple of years, I Tunes. I had no idea only an Apple product could play them. She has copied a couple of her dad's old mp3 and they work, but her Mp3's will not play on my player. I offered it to her and she laughed at me. She informed me that she needed an IPhone. Like the one she had stolen at school.

    What I don't understand is proprietary systems like Apple. Why on earth would you make your stuff only playable only on your machines. No more money for Apple. I will now buy my music from sources who don't have their noses stuck up in the air. lol

    It's called customer lock in. Microsoft does it with Office and Windows. The only reason for the .docx format was to keep Open Office from opening the files. "Trial" versions of Messy Office only save in docx. So if you use the trial version you have to pay the fee to get your documents back. Mind you they don't tell you this up front. The first hit is always free.



    Has anyone found any other paper ships scaled for 25/28?
