Langton is THE standard for Napoleonic era naval miniatures. You can't go wrong with anything they make. They are 1:1200 scale, though, so it's a bit off from from the 1:1000 scale of Sails of Glory.

If you haven't checked it out already, you can learn TONS about Langton over at the Sails of Glory fan site, www.sailsofglory.org. Those guys have forgotten more about naval miniatures than I ever hope to learn.

I use the American Civil War miniatures and the detailing is amazing.

When it comes to Napoleonic ships, Langton and GHQ miniatures are some of the best you can get. In a small way, the the Sails of Glory miniatures look like larger versions of GHQ miniatures. I say larger because they are 1:1200 scale and Sails of Glory are 1:1000 scale. Not really sure if that makes a huge difference when it comes to the coastal bits and pieces Langton produces.

Any idea what their mail order service is like? Their website (http://www.rodlangton.com/napoleonic/frame.htm) looks like it hasn't been upgraded since the 17th century.
