Hi

Id like to know how many ships are available at the moment (november 2016)?
At the moment there seem to be available

Revenge
San Martin
Santiago(same model as San Martin; only in the starter as there s no card for it in the website?)
Swallow (same model as Revenge; only in the starter as there s no card for it in the website?) )
Golden hind
Santa Maria

which can lead to a potentially 3vs3 game.
Golden hind and santa maria have got only one (printable) card? no two cards like the model in the starter set?

Have you actually seen a Santa Maria model?

The only one I see from Zvezda is the Columbus ship of that same name. It's not right for battle a century later but might be okay to use like a merchant ship or small transport as part of a scenario.

The only actual models I have seen are the same two which come in the starter box (sold separately) and the Golden Hind.

Which is too bad.

I would love for someone to tell me differently, but it looks like the death of the designer has taken Zvezda out of the 'game' business.

I have a starter, another starter, and 2 extra ships, plus the Golden Hind. Everything but one starter is still in shrink. I need to decide if that is 'enough' or if I should sell the whole batch to someone who will really get some use out of it.

Hello comrades!

I list the official model suitable for games:
English fraction
Revange (it has a unique model, it has a game-cards "downloadable")
Golden Hind (it has a unique model, it has a game-cards "downloadable")
Swallow (he does not have a unique model, it has a game-cards "not downloadable")
Spanish fraction
San-Martin (it has a unique model, it has a game-cards "downloadable")
Santa Maria (it has a unique model, it has a game-cards "downloadable")
Santiago (he does not have a unique model, it has a game-cards "not downloadable")

"Zvezda" and released another ship. Pirate. But it is not released to him of game cards. For Russia is - "Black Pearl", for export is - "Black Swan". The same model but different boxes. Different yet the bow figure.

In the end we have the official 5 models and 1 starter box.

I did not just say "official models"
We, the players, enter in "the ships" a few models from other manufacturers:
1. Revell model 05899 "Spanish Galeon" 1/450.
Yes, 1/350 scale is not, but this is great galleass gets two hex. In reality galleass galleon were longer, if he was on a scale of 1/350, it would have held nearly three hexes.
This model can be converted into Spanish galleass "La Girona"
https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Girona

2. Revell model 05897 "La Reale" 1/450.
!uestion of scale - the same. However, the box offers us to French galley "La Real" sailing ship, XVI c. but for our game we need a Spanish galley. Excellent for this model galley "Real" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_(galley)


There are several models, but they are vintage, they are no longer produced:



We also do conversions, will write later

If you don't mind the name on the cards to be «Black Pearl» instead of «Black Swan», they are listed at the end of a very nice review of Armada Invincible.
