1st Rate ships of the line were extremely large and powerful and were a true display of a Navy's power. They were, however, expensive to operate, so their service use was limited in times of peace. In the carronade era, a 1st Rate ship-of-the-line was defined as mounting no less than 100 guns.
A French Navy 1st Rate can, when using the national special rules, be an extremely resilient foe to dislodge from battle. French ships have access to the 'sturdy' upgrade for a discount, and thus have a significant number of ship point to chew through. Of course, 1st rates are generally very powerful, but point for point, a French 1st rate should be sticking around longer to wreak havoc among your enemy's formations.
The highly detailed kit comes with optional figureheads (see picture) enabling your 1st Rate to truly stand out. It also comes with a ship card, flag sheet, bobbin for rigging, ratline sheet and wake markers.
