Cloudships and Gunboats

by Richard Houston

1/1000 scale miniature aerial vessels for use with Space: 1889.

The Houston's Ships line of Cloudships and Gunboats was released shortly after Sky Galleons of Mars came out in 1988. The ships were designed by Richard Houston to the same scale as his "Foreign Ships" (pre-Dreadnaught Era naval miniatures) at approximately 1/1000 scale. The Foreign Ships line, along with the Cloudships and Gunboats, complimented Space: 1889's Ironclads and Ether Flyers miniatures rule set.
The Cloudships and Gunboats line of miniatures are no longer commercially available (although re-casts can occasionally be found on eBay). Mr. Houston sold his original molds to Scott Flowers at GameTech. Mr. Flowers re-designed the ships and sold those designs under the GameTech label for a number of years.
