Description

HMS Leopard saw service during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, and was active in Europe, East Indies and Egypt. In 1807, a group of British sailors - some of American birth - deserted and joined the crew of USS Chesapeake. Captain Humphreys, commanding Leopard, requested permission to search for the deserters. Chesapeake's captain refused, and Leopard opened fire, capturing the American ship. Humphreys took back four deserters and hanged the British-born ones. This incident was one of several episodes that increased the tension between the British Empire and the United States, finally exploding in the War of 1812.

The ship base, ship card and ship log are printed on two sides - the game data of a second ship is printed on the back. This ship pack can also be used to represent the British Portland Class "HMS Isis 1774 (1779)."

This is not a complete game. You must own a Sails of Glory Starter Set to play.

Miniatures are supplied unpainted and assembly maybe required.
