Imperial 1803 / Republique Francaise 1802 - Sails of Glory Expansion Pack (SGN106C)
In Sails of Glory you will sail and fight with massive ships-of-the-line or swift frigates, in an age where the armies and fleets of the French Emperor Napoleon I battled across the seas, as well as on the fields of Europe, and the powerful Royal Navy of the British Empire clashed against the French from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea, in dramatic naval battles, such as Trafalgar and the Battle of the Nile.
The Impérial was a first-rate 118-gun French ship-of-the-line of the Océan class. Designed by Jacques-Noël Sané, she was launched on 1 October 1803 and completed in February 1804 under the name “Vengeur”. She was renamed to Impérial in March 1805. The Impérial was the French flagship in the Battle of San Domingo on February, 6th 1806. Severely damaged and surrounded by several British ships, she was beached by her captain to prevent her sinking and capture; a few days later the British set fire to the wreck, destroying it. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French ship-of-the-line “République Française 1802”..
Fast playing and easy-to-learn, Sails of Glory uses pre-painted and assembled ship miniatures and an innovative movement mechanic, inspired by the acclaimed system used in Ares Games' Wings of Glory game.
