Pictures (and AAR in French) of a Man O' War naval battle played last Saturday at Salon de la Maquette de Lorient (Brittany).

Yay, it's a fun game!
 
It's been bubbling under for me this season and thinking that it's been too long since I pulled it out for a play.

I used to really enjoy Man O War but haven't played it in about 20 years! I was even considering selling my copy! Mighty Empires was a great companion to it for campaigns.

And Warhammer 3rd Ed!

Love seeing some Man-o-War. Really need to dig mine out for another game (last played about a year ago). Need some more Corsairs for my Brettonians though and another squadron of Wolfships would mean I can field two fleets of Empire!

I've scratchbuilt most of my Brettonians (and Elves) from basswood hulls, brass tube cannons, and styrene plastic cut and gently heated over a candle for the sails.  Corsairs are a quick build:

Tremendous. I love Man O war.

One day I'll dig it all out and get some games played

There are heaps of good 3D printed Man O'War ships I've seen on a number of forums.  Granted you'd need a quality printer for the scale, but there is still some support out there for it.
