From Lord Archibald Hamilton, Governor of Jamaica to Their Worships, The Lords of Admiralty

My Lords,

“By late advices from Havana I am told the Galleons from Vera Cruz were daily expected there in order to join the Spanish Ships of War, one of which was the Hampton Court, who are said to have great treasure on board for Old Spain.”

We hope that everyone that got to experience our latest installment in the Sailpower storyline series held at Gencon 2016. For those who wanted to know the back-story that our GMs were using, or were not able to attend the sold-out series of event, here is the scenario packet that our GMs were using!

We have released two new ship kits for Sailpower 2.0: the 12 Gun Quarter Deck Great Sloop, and the 18 Gun Sloop of War-Snake Class. The sloop is of Dutch origin and is characterized as a single-masted vessel with a large gaff rigged main sail, oftentimes complimented with a large topsail. The ubiquitous  sloop could be spotted anywhere, and came in all sizes. Sloops quickly became preferred by pirates and privateers for the ability to sail upwind and its relatively shallow draft.

The Quarter Deck Great Sloop is based on Continental Navy sloop Providence (formerly merchant Katy) commanded by the legendary John Paul Jones, and the Sloop of War is patterned after HMS Snake of the Royal Navy. Similar vessels were built by every navy of the era.

 

Both Kits Feature:
● 1-piece hull for ease of assembly
● Cast in two colors (brown hull/black accessories)
● Ready to assemble masting with pre-cut dowels

Both kits are now available in our Online Store!
