Yes these three are all now painted and after doing g British and French these are carrying my own crest from the House of Lone, so rather merchanty! I guess they would be around a medium ship size now they are all painted and I guess they could beceither merchants or warships as I have tried to model on the little cannons on deck!
Currently I am working on some bigger ships for medium to large merchants or warships. These care being modelled as treasure galleon types like you imagine the Spanish would have back then. Hopefully I can get them ready for Friday but I will bring what I have available.

That is a good idea.

With my bigger ones I have gone for the big treasure galleons like you imagine Spanish ones to look like.

I have also done my best to model cannon onto the decks, but try as I may I cannot do crew at that scale, just way too difficult, they just look like blobs of green stuff.

Yes i have some, but you do not get many deck crew per packet. Only six which is barely enough for three ships then only if you spaced with guns!
