One game's Bark is another's Brigantine

 Firelock Games' Bark

All of Firelock Games' models are an excellent starting hull for the price. That said I can't help myself when it comes to modifications and after market parts. The original model is shown here:

Most info I read out there classifies the Bark (Barque, Barc)  a type of sailing vessel with three or more masts having the fore- and mainmasts rigged square and only the mizzen (the aft-most mast) rigged fore and aft. Not getting hung up on the product title I just made the ship into  Brigantine and doubled her gun complement.


The ship titled "Le Cresson" or Water Crest in English sticks to the traditional off color naming conventions of our past projects but looses it's humor from the original French Euphemism.
