Development of the rig is thought to have begun with fore-and-aft rigged boats built by a Dutch-born Bermudian in the 17th century. It was popular due to its superb upwind sailing, performance, and resistance to rot due to cedar being used in construction. Our game version features 6 guns and a dollhouse-style captain’s cabin unique to these sloop designs.

Kit Features:

  • One-piece resin cast hull
  • 6 cannons

This version carried a high deck (allowing for an ample hold) and 6 cannon.

Kit Features:

  • One-piece resin cast hull
  • 6 cannons

 10 Gun Cutter kit – Sailpower 2.0 – $35.00

This 15mm Sailpower 2.0 cutter model differs from a sloop in that the mast is generally set further back (more centered) and by having a sleek hull and the capability to carry very large amounts of canvas on its single mast. Cutter’s also feature an offset boom in front instead of the traditional bowsprit. Cutters were used by smugglers due to the legendary speed possible from the design. The Royal navy and revenue service ran this design as both a dispatch vessel, and as smuggler interdiction. This sort of vessel would be a common sight in the coastal and channel waters during the Age of Revolutions. This version carries 10 light cannon.

Kit Features:

  • One-piece resin cast hull
  • 10 light cannons
  • Ready to assemble masting
  • Styled after historic revenue cutters, dispatch vessels and privateers

This is a 15mm 10-gun brigantine typical of those favored by pirates of Nassau. This ship likely started life as a merchant, and also can be upgraded to add swivel guns, including 2 on either side of the ship’s wheel, which would be used to guard the Captain from threats on the main deck.

  • One-piece resin cast hull

This 15mm brig is armed with 12 guns, has a bluff bow and a nice quarterdeck and stern gallery and has 12 points along the rail to potentially add rail swivel guns. She would be typical of merchant and privateer brigs from the Age of Piracy and the Age of Revolutions. This mid-sized ship makes for a nice “large” ship for smaller games, or as a privateer, merchant, or mid-sized warship for a bigger game. She also would make for a great support ship for a small coastal raiding mission!

Kit Features:

  • One-piece resin cast hull
  • 12 cannons (8 deck cannons included with kit, 4 below deck cannons represented on hull/not included)
  • Ready to assemble masting

 CLASSIC KITS:

 We sculpted these over the years that the first edition was in print.  They are a bit more customizable in that the hatches and other bits are separate pieces which allows you to modify location or omit them as desired.  The Soldiery has a standing inventory of these kit designs and going forward is the exclusive retailer of the classic kit line.  

Going forward as these kits are reordered we plan to upgrade the directions and the masting for the classic designs, and will keep them available for the builders who like to customize the look. We will also be releasing a lot of these new designs as part of our 2.0 kit line with upgraded details cast in, and a new twist. 

SP-BC14 14 gun Baltimore Clipper

Baltimore clippers had their evolution in blockade runners and privateers of the American Revolution. They were built at Fells Point Maryland, a suburb of Baltimore. The Baltimore clippers are noted for their rakish masts and sleek hulls. The British eventually captured some and studied their lines. One reason suggested for the attack on Fort Mchenry during the War of 1812 was that it guarded Baltimore where these annoyances to British pride were built. The hull for this ship is about twelve by three and a half inches. This kit MSRPs for $100

A basic privateer version, the Comet

SPQ-BR12 Sailpower 12 gun Quarterdeck Brig of War Kit

The 12-gun brig is inspired by Colonial/Revolutionary/Napoleonic era warships such as the Fair American, and by the Lady Washington, a replica you might recognize (repainted and dressed) as the HMS Interceptor from the movie Pirates of the Caribbean. It sports a well-built hull with lots of survivability. Four of her cannons are below deck for extra protection. This vessel is well suited to be the flagship of a flotilla of smaller warships, or as a tender to a larger frigate. The hull for this ship is about eleven by three inches. This Kit MSRPs for $85.
