A small Naval diversion.

In between all the painting and sorting out I came across a box containing my Langton Napoleonic ships bought some years ago.
I did complete four of these with all the rigging etc but it was quicker to paint a unt of 28mm figures than do one ship.
I then came across Model J ships - http://modeljship.com/en/
  Julian the proprietor is a master at his craft - he paints, rigs and bases the ships ( only Langton) so after much thought I sent him 3 British ships from my original Algeciras project.
They arrived today :)








I am over the moon with these. Check out his web site - he has started doing resin forts as well, now I know he's not cheap but you get value for money and one ship is still cheaper than a unit of 28mm.
Beautiful stuff - some Spanish will be going off for the treatment! shortly.

  1. As you know Graham I am quite a fan of this project of yours. This is looking exceedingly like a must follow project for the new year. Very keen to see how you approach rules selection etc. I have a few Langtons myself busting to get out of their boxes.

    1. Carlo,
      I guess the good thing with the ships is that the rules can come later , bases etc don't really matter. Get those ships out of the boxes
      :)

  5. Very beautiful Graham, good enough for a museum, though much more fun to actually play with them. look forward to hearing more.
