    Hello, here you will find my completed naval ships for this time period.

    The thread itself is only for discussion of completed units. If you want to discuss other naval units not yet posted please visit my thread on the main creation page.

    Currently I am not taking requests for this time period nor am I planning on doing many at the moment. I am doing this for stico who created all these wonderful models and has put up with how long it took for me to finally do them. ;) I will occasional add ships as I complete them.

    A special thanks goes out to stico and Ares de Borg for all their help in making these units.

    Nice! I'm looking forward to downloading this later and seeing how you ended up animating them. Stico did a great job with the models, too.

    Thanks to stico and Delta for these useful ships! There will be an update soon, including an alternate, not-so splashy death sound and a few fixes, so be sure to keep your eyes open for them. ;)

    Very nice! I might use the third one as an generic Viking-style ship for Northern Europeans.

    That is.... unusual - but already very neat looking. Never thought anyone would go as far back as to the pre-classical age to bring us the sea people's rides.

    Delta_Strife, thank you very much for animating these wonderful ships. :) Now the "Bavarian" galley is available for Civ 3. On a first view on the unit with Jasc Animation Shop, it seems, that the arrows attack is next to not visible. I soon will test that animation in game.

    Let me know how it looks in game. Wanted to make the galley look pretty weak when being attacked.

    These are great ships and it would be very fine news
    IF ...

    you would consider to enhance your sailing skills even more and close the gap from these to all your fine ships from late 19th century.

    I was first thinking on ships like CSS Alabama or USS Kearsage for a time-period between the Frigates and your protected cruisers.
    Some early steam ships are in the DB today, but not this type of fast raiders which could fill a nice role for an upgrade of lets say some early privateers with hidden nationality.

    Great work on the ships guys.
    The Merchantman does look weak when being attacked by the Sea Peoples Ships in game.
