I thought I recognized it. The board around the corner looks like Old Glory. That particular type of look is good for certain ships, but the row boat in front does look like MBA. Their stuff is some of the best. As stated before earlier in the post though, they only have one type of ship in this era, a Bermuda Sloop. While it is very cool, I don't want just one type of ship. Want some variety.

It's not my picture so I can't say for sure, but it looks like a Miniature Building Authority Small Wooden Boat.

That small boat in the foreground of your 2nd picture. There is a sloop-like ship around the corner of the dock. Is the small boat of Old Glory make? It looks really good.

Old Glory
I have purchased hundreds of the Normans, Crusaders, and pirates in 25 mm. Thousands of 15mm ACW.The Dwarf Wars line is a bit larger than Reaper closer to 40 mm.The Ghost line is 28mm.They have Mounted Dwarves on boars. I also have the orcs on wolfs, the trolls and giants.I have two of the Dwarf Wars Giant Mammoths and most of the OOP buildings.I use the orc Dwarf War command groups with my trolls and The Dwarf Wars goblins as black orcs.

Not an intentional bump, but I did want to state that I just now ordered a dock with crane and supplies, plus the Cog merchant ship from Kobblestone. I've looked for quite some time for just the ships that I want to place in my harbor. This ship looks really good and will fit into my campaign world wonderfully. I decided on the cog version, and preferred the Kobblestone mini over the Old Glory mini, but not by much. I think I'm going to pick up a couple of the Old Glory minis to add variety. Likely fishing vessels and such.

I'm very curious if anyone here has any Old Glory minis. I haven't purchased them before, and they look less detailed than what I would like, but I'm not certain. Advice/Insight from others would be most welcome.

That is the best I've seen so far. I would like to see different configurations that can be made from it though, outside of the typical format. True, it can be made longer or short, but is that all? I hope not. Would you mind posting a few other examples of what you have managed to put together using this set?

I would like to add, that you did a very nice job crafting those.

I've constructed some 'ship parts' which combine with my psomminiature barn set to make to inside of ships. I'll put up some links to my deviantart page:

This project remains on one side of my mind... I think I will try something with boats after my roof project...
