1:1200 USS Tyler

This timberclad gunboat is just a one-off piece for a Shiloh game.  The ship comes from Thoroughbred Miniatures, and I liked it well enough that I am considering building some Civil War navies.  The 1:1200 scale vessels have a small enough footprint that you could play naval games in scale!  At 4.4 feet to the mile, most engagements would be doable on a standard table.

  1. Very interesting looking ship, Scott. I like the water effects too. I agree 1/1200th us a nice scale for naval gaming. Inspiring stuff.

    1. Thanks, Dean! Yes, the 1:1200 stuff is nice. You can still identify the vessels at a glance.

  2. Good water effects on the base. They really show off the model.

    1. Thanks, AJ! If I stick with it, I'll probably try to find a way to texture the base better. That's just paint on the wood on this one.

  3. I'm hoping Thoroughbred expands their 1/1200 offerings to match their 1/600 line-up.

    1. Thanks, David. It would be fun. There just aren't a lot of big actions. I have always wanted to try the Battle of Memphis.
