Sarissa Precision has another rather fancy ship for us to check out this week as they introduced the Medieval Cog to their 28mm line-up. See what you think of this Historical trading and warfare vessel.

These particular ships were often used throughout the 12th Century as trading vessels by the Europeans with a fairly wide deck where you could pack all sorts of goods for sale across the channel. Some of them, however, were then outfitted for war like one designed for the Earl of Pembroke which saw use during the Battle Of Sandwich in 1217.

As you can see, it has two large turret sections which have been built at the fore and aft of the ship. With those wooden walls built up around defenders, you could fire arrows and get the drop on enemies from above in boarding actions too. This seems like a pretty defensible position with which to control the waterways of your kingdom.

This would certainly be a good fit for those who are diving into games and ranges like The Barons' War but you could also give this a Fantasy spin too. Many an adventure has happened aboard a river warden's boat in the likes of Warhammer Fantasy so maybe this could be your next focal point for a game or roleplaying adventure?

What do you make of this Medieval Cog?
