I've recently gotten into the Temeraire series (Naomi Novik), and was thinking of coming up with some Trafalgar variant rules in which to incorporate dragons into the Trafalgar game setting....
Beyond all the dragon-specific rules, aerial-combat rules, dragon/ship interaction, flying-formations rules, etc, the very first problem I'm running into is finding dragon miniatures available in any of the typical naval scales. I'm not sure that 1:1200 would be the ideal scale for this game, since a standard 1st rate is going to be significantly larger than any dragon, but if I could find anything in any standard naval range I'd be happy.
Any direction you guys could point me in for these types of minis?
Any of the fantasy naval ranges out there have anything decent (Man 'O War, etc)?
And any thoughts you guys might have regarding a Temeraire Trafalgar-variant? I know this game is already niche-enough, but I figured if I could put a fantasy-spin on it I might actually get more interest out of a local gaming group rather than a purely historical game.
