Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

Sails of Glory is a series of games that recreates naval combat in the Age of Sails (1650-1815). Based on the game system used in Wings of Glory (formerly Wings of War), Sails of Glory uses miniatures, cards and board game mechanisms, with a special deck of maneuver cards representing the different movement capabilities of each vessel. The game will be supported by a range of painted and assembled 1/1000 miniatures.

Players will choose their maneuver cards in secret, then reveal them all at the same moment. The card features arrows to be put in front of the miniature, then the latter is moved on top of the arrowhead. Several options on the same card are available depending on the wind and, with advanced rules, the sails used. After all ships moved, guns are fired from the sides of the miniature to targets in range.

The Wings of Glory game system has been modified and expanded to accurately represent battles at sea between the large sailing ships of the past centuries. The first series of Sails of Glory will be set in the Napoleonic Age. If the game is successful, in the future Sails of Glory will be extended to cover other historical periods, such as the Age of Discovery, the Middle Ages and ancient times.

6 SGN Statistics & Ship Mat Maker
XL spreadsheet containing statistics data for all the ships and forts in the game, up through the release of Victory and Constitution in April 2015. The "Paper Ship-Mat Maker" tab can be used to print up to 4 ship-mats on one 8x11 sheet of paper, for paper-and-pencil recordkeeping, instead of using chits and the normal ship mats. Highly recommended. You will need macros enabled. ***SORRY DOES NOT WORK IN OPENOFFICE!*** Codes for tracking the actions and status each turn can be found on the "Ship-Mat Codes Quickref" tab. To the far right on the "Ship Statistics" tab, I've included some rudimentary calculations/summaries of the ships' combat data, in order to get a better sense of how they stack up relative to each other, and to highlight and quantify the small differences between...

4 Sails of Glory - Fleet Builder
This is an excel reference that also allows you to create two fleets of up to 10 ships each, and modify each ship with up to 3 captain abilities, up to 3 crew crew abilities, and up to two boxes of ship and/or sail damage. It automatically tallies the point cost for each ship, and for the fleet as a whole. For instructions how to use the fleet builder, check the "Preferences" tab. Note: This only has the ships published before 1/1/15 (so all Wave 1, Wave 2, Starter and KS ships, but not the most recent wave of British/Spanish ships, and not the Constitution or Victory ships). I plan to update once I get these packs.

5 Towns and coastal batteries custom terrain tiles.
Hi mates! Here comes a second part of my custom terrain tiles for Sails of Glory - as requested in the comments, there are several ports, villages and batteries with firing arcs. I have photoshopped satelite images of mediteranean villages onto my previous textures and here it is. The file is the same resolution and physical size as the previous one (SOG custom terrain tiles), so you can join one set with the other. I print them in color on a3 format paper, and they work well with miniatures :) Hope you find them useful and enjoy!

7 Custom coasts and shoals terrain tiles
I am a professional board game artist, so I've made during my lunch break some quick custom pieces of terrain for Sails of Glory. I have no idea how they would stick to official game tiles, because i didn't get them yet... as soon as I have them I may resize the pieces apropriately. These are simple coastlines. You can print them on a4 or a3 paper, and cut in any way you like. They are modular, and work with each other. If you would have any ideas for tiles you would like me to make, I could produce more of them - please let me know in the comments :) Thanks!

8 Very large custom game mat for Sails of Glory (160cm x 180cm).
Here is another custom game mat for the Sails of Glory game. This time it includes a grid. It consists of two parts. Each could be used as a single mat but they could be layed next to each other forming a very large playing surface (160cm x 180cm) for longer games. Both maps together are more than 4 times the size of the original mat. Again I used a single aerial photo of the sea near the Bahamas for it. Just separated into two parts. It could easily be printed on PVC tarpaulin or canvas.
