Tumbling Dice ships for Jasmund / Rugen 1864


I was asked about the Tumbling Dice models that I have used as proxies for the Prussian and Danish flotillas at Jasmund / Rugen in March 1864. While most of these are close enough in terms of size and appearance, there are one or two that I've had to include that are some way off, particularly the paddler Loreley. 

Prussians

Nymphe (Screw Corvette) - ASV 11 Screw Sloop
Arcona (Screw Corvette) - ASV 8 Small Frigate HMS Arrogant
Loreley (Paddle Aviso) - ASV 16 Paddle Corvette
Comet (1st Class Gunboat) - ASV 15 Screw Corvette
Scorpion, Wespe, Pfeil, Hyane and Hay (2nd Class Gunboats) - ASV 13 Screw Gunboat

Danes

Skjold (Screw Ship of the Line) - ASV 3 2nd Rate 90 gun HMS Hero

Sjaelland (Screw Frigate) - ASV 5 Frigate HMS Phoebe
Tordenskjold (Screw Frigate) - ASV 8 Small Frigate HMS Arrogant
Thor (Screw Corvette) - ASV 11 Screw Sloop
Heimdal (Screw Corvette) - as above

A few compromises here and there but they do look the part and are more than adequate as stand ins for the real thing. I'm hoping to get started on the painting this weekend.

  2. There's also the Hallmark range which has some suitable models and some specific Danish ships like the Rolf Keane and Danmark.

  3. That should be Rolf Krake obviously!
