Montagne 1790/ Commerce De Marseille 1788 - Sails of Glory Expansion Pack (SGN106A)
118-Guns Ocean-Class Ships-of-the-Line Model
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 Océan-class was a series of 16 first-rate 118-gun ships of the line of the French Navy, designed by engineer Jacques-Noël Sané. Along with the 74-gun of the Téméraire type and the 80-gun of the Tonnant type, the Océan 120-gun type was to become one of the three French standard types of battleships during the war period 1793 to 1815. These were the most powerful ships of the Napoleonic Wars, and a total of ten served during that time.
The Montagne, originally called “Océan”, was a French 118-gun first-rate three-decker ship of the line, the lead ship of her class. After several name changes, she became “Montagne” in October 1793. As Montagne, the ship was the flagship of Rear-Admiral Villaret-Joyeuse in the famous battle known as the “Glorious First of June”, where she was badly damaged by the HMS Royal Sovereign. In 1795 she was renamed “Océan” again. She served in the French Navy until 1855. This ship pack can also be used to represent the French ship-of-the-line “Commerce de Marseille 1788”.
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.
