Nice.

Though, technically, the Portland is British . . .

First saw these on SoG Kickstarter...but they aren't offered via Kickstarter, just through local retail channels around November (per Ares).

It's kind of refreshing to be able to just walk into a store and buy it!

Indeed.

Based on past schedule/delivery differences, I would not suggest promising these to someone as a Xmas present.

But it will be a nice present to all if we can get them in time for that.

I'm very much looking forward to the 64 and 50.

Yeah, I know I am swearing off Kickstarter for a bit.

Was it my imagination, or was the Bonhomme Richard supposed to be part of this wave, too?

As it is, the game is really light on American ships...

Next wave, I think.

And, in fairness to Ares, history was pretty light on American ships during this period.

Perfidy, sir!

Why, here is a list of 92 USN ships that participated in the 1812 war, alone!

A lot of schooners, sloops, and brigs though. Some frigates and two ships of the line.

The scale is just off.

Bah, humbug.

In any case, there is a something like a dozen ships of the Brandywine/Potomac-type build during the mid-19th century that would be solid candidates. Unusuallly, supposedly build in a way that gives their stern no unusual vulnerability to raking fire.

(And a number of the schooners and sloops are no smaller than the Swan-type we already have in the game, so...)

The game usually features ships from the mid to late 18th century to the very early 19th century. These seem a bit out of the time scope.

Yes, but those aren't really the most interesting ships to play with.

I'm not trying to bring you down, just trying to reason why they're unlikely to show up.

Plus, I really appreciate the list you brought up, I love reading articles about that kind of stuff. You also used the word "perfidy", the two of us will get along just fine, Sir!

Yeah, those ships build in the 1820s-1840s definitely have some interesting careers to them. Was just reading this bit on the Potomac's cruise around the world. The USN had a habit of doing this sort of thing in that period - 'showing the flag' and 'gunboat diplomacy' missions that actually result in a lot of smaller-scale actions.

(Which tend to be my preferred type - you can actually play them in one sitting! cool )

I think the Potomac Frigate(s) are out of the SoG time frame.

The Bonhomme Richard is in the next wave. Last spring they said that wave would be out by the end of 2016 and that the wave released in November was due out June 2016. So not sure how late the Bonhomme Richard will be.

I did not like that The Spanish ship San Agustin had a white flag.
Anyone know why ?

Thanks :-)
But why the other ships have a different flag. Did the Spanish change in a given time frame?

Yes, and they have been doing that with the French and British ships already. The British ships fly a mix of different ensigns, the French a mix of tricolors and the white French ensign.
