I've finished painting up the ships for the Age of Sail Battle of Gogland. This was a battle fought July 17, 1788 between Russia and Sweden during the Russo-Swedish War (1788-90). Ship range from frigates to 1rst Rate. The Russians have the largest ship at 108 guns.
I am using the Flying Colors rules. The rules are available in the Blue Cross, White Ensign boardgame or Flying Colors boardgame. The frigates I've painted up take up two hexes, whereas in the boardgame rules they only take up a single hex. I don't think this impacts the battle, but it does spread out the initial setup a bit.
The game mat is a 1" hex mat from Cigar Box Battle over a 6' x 5' table.
The ships are 1:2400 Tumbling Dice miniatures. Flags on the back are on narrow brass wire and glued into a drilled hole on the stern of every ship (white glue). These can be easily removed and replaced if needed for a different country. I've gone with numeric labels on the back of each stand. The number corresponds to an OOB instead of trying to put names on the bases. These labels are color coded to each navy.
Here are pictures of the miniatures and the layout before the battle begins.
