Re: Good For Battle of Lepanto?

Could the sailors in these sets be used for the Battle of Lepanto?

Re: Good For Battle of Lepanto?

Difficult to say as long as we don't see the actual figures. Well, Lepanto is even later than Malta. To judge from the box art, I'd say: Venetians rather not, Spanish probably yes. You can also use the already released English and Turkish sailors, of course. But how recreate the battle of Lepanto without tons of suitable oarsmen? Really, I think now that Red Box have started a 16th to 17th sailors range a box of galley oarsmen is just an obligation. Especially as we would like to get them as long as Heller's Réale (the only galley kit that could possibly be converted into something like a Lepanto galley) is still available...
