  4. If anyone has a better source especially one covering the entire period depicted in this game that would be great. http://www.larsonweb.com/Transfer/Miniatures/Sail/NAPSHIPS.htm Some Historical Paint Schemes Some examples of ships at The Battle of the Nile 1798 taken from a data sheet provided by Davco miniatures: British ships HMS Alexander: Plain yellow sides with a black stroke HMS Goliath: Yellow sides with a black stroke between upper and lower rows of gun ports HMS Culloden: Yellow sides with two narrow black strokes between upper and lower gun ports HMS Zealous: Red sides with a narrow yellow stripe HMS Minotaur: Red sides with a black stroke between upper and lower gun ports French ships Le Guerrier: Dark yellow sides L’ Aquilon: Red sides with a black stroke between the upper and lower gun ports Le Franklin: Medium yellow sides Le Heureux: Very dark yellow sides Le Timoleon: Very dark red sides Le Guillaume: Light yellow sides with black stroke between upper and lower decks Some examples of ships at The Battle of Trafalgar 1805 taken from a data sheet provided by GHQ and other sources: All of the British ships were painted in the "Nelson Checker" of alternating black and yellow stripes and black gun ports. To further distinguish the British ships from the French/Spanish ships, the British painted their masts yellow instead of having the normal varnished wood. Yards and mast tops were still black. There was no standard color scheme among the French and Spanish ships. The French ship Neptune for example had reddish-yellow stripes on a black hull while the Intrepide might have had bright red stripes Others had red or yellow stripes of various shades. Some Spanish ships such as the San Justo and Santa Anna were painted almost all black and the Spanish Santissima Trinidad, a four deck ship-of-the-line, had a deep red hull and a narrow band of white under each of the four rows of gun ports. Other sources suggest that the S. Trinidad was painted red with white stripes, and another description gives it red stripes edged white on black, and yet, one other reference suggests that the ship was actually white, with red stripes! Other Parts of the Ship While you are safe using natural wood colors when painting the rest of the ship (the deck being a very light color of wood or light tan/beige), the following information offers some alternatives. If you want to the actual source, this information comes from an article in the Jan. 1990 issue of Miniature Wargames magazine. BRITAIN OTHER NATIONS Inside Bulwarks red or ochre red, yellow, green, blue, black, or brown Gun Carriage red, yellow, wood ochre ditto, and green Outer Bulwarks dark blue, dark gray ditto, and red or brown FRANCE SPAIN Fighting Top Armings blue, red white-and-blue green and white BRITAIN FRANCE, USA Masts varnished, yellow varnished, white Masts Tops black black Mast Bands black black Yards black black
