Colonial Wargamers have largely been confined to land actions for decades, yet so many famous
campaigns had a Coastal or Riverine facet. Heretofore, commercial Gunboat and Native models have been sparse, mostly
handmade, and thus expensive. But now, "Send A Gunboat!" is here to change that dynamic for the better.
After almost 20 yearS of offering cardstock designs, TVAG has finally stepped into the 21st Century
with 3D Printing and now offers you a VASTLY improved selection of models in 15mm scale.
More models will be added as they are designed, and several more will appear here very soon.
Chris Ferree, created the initial releases for the Pirate Wars of the South China Sea and East Indies in the
mid-19th Century era of "Rajah Brooke, but models for campaigns on the Nile, East Africa, the Philippines, China and beyond
Printed in white PLA, models need
only painting and minor assembly upon delivery and come with the guns listed for each plus pre-cut wooden masts, spars,
crosstrees, and sails, where relevant. Native craft will also include ready-to-mount sails and weapons befitting their type.
Sites for threading lines have been designed into the 3D prints, allowing buyers
to rig their models as seen in many of the photos, below.
Models do NOT come with crew figures.
However, RN Landing Parties and Sailors, plus Dyak, Malay, Iranun, Banguingui, Moro, and Chinese Pirates are available
on the The Kris And The Flame page. Royal Marines, and more will
be added soon, as well as a wider range of figures to go with the growing ranges of warships, war canoes, etc.
To reduce costs, TVAG keeps no ready stock of models on hand. Orders will be filled on demand, and 3D printing requires
time to produce a superior product. Orders will be filled in order of receipt. The larger the order, the more time
will be required. For now, we believe that two weeks should be more than sufficient to prepare an order for shipment.
If any delay appears likely, the customer will be so notified. However, anyone is free to contact TVAG with any questions
or concerns at anytime. Your kind consideration and patience will be well rewarded!--TVAG
