Did some quick props for an upcoming re-fight of the Crossing of the Duna in 1701. I think they are good enough for a game! Hope it is of some interest. More here.  All the best

I really like the gunboat!  I'm toying with the idea to make an austrian river gunboat (Tschaika). The boat is not  the problem, but where to get the oarsmen?

Thanks for the nice comments,

Oarsmen - I am reflecting on the same issue, as I also need some smaller rowing boats for the assault party.  I have some ideas, I will post more on a future blog.

Rod Langton has some napoleonic ships in 1/300, and there are oarsmen mentioned in the descriptions. Maybe british uniforms, but there are no pictures.

Woah, what you have done it's just astonishing!

As an Italian, I'm very honoured by the use you made with those spaghetti!!

Bravo again!

Cheers!

Andros, I appreciate the Italian endorsement! molto grato!  As for more boat options, I have ordered 4 of the smallest Rob Langton boats, the Irregular Sailing and rowing boat, as well as the smallest viking boat from heroics and ros (under dark ages) - all for research purpose of course.  But more on this later...

Hi Per, great, I'm very curious! Especially about the langton boats and the oarsmen.

I have started building  one of his 1/300 boats, a greek trireme. The figures are very simple, so no baccus-standard, but the ship looks very good.

I will let you know, how do the figure scale in the ones you have seen compare to Baccus? Are they similar, or as I suspect smaller?
