Argonor's Large Hats and Flashing Steel
« on: May 24, 2018, 11:11:31 PM »
I actually thought I already had a thread here, but it seems not...

So, as I have recently purchased Galleys & Galleons



And am busily preparing some templated for it



I thought I'd better start one.

Benn Etton agrees, by the way...

Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!

We've played G&G and enjoyed it. Haven't done Flashing Steel, yet...

I shall do my best. Expect to solo play some G&G next week, to get to grips with the rules (and special rules in particular).

Thanks, he was painted quite some time ago for the painting club of this board. I may have to paint him some companions...

You had me scratch my head for a bit there, before I realized that 'Flashing Steel' is also a game title from Ganesha. I used it more as a descriptive of the swashbuckling/pirating/exploring genre, here, but I may well get those rules at a later point, though.

Templates are all done. Looks like shit that I did not mark up circles to cut them from - need to make some nicer ones at a later point.



Couple more pics of the Wind Compass on the blog.

Flashing Steel is not  a finished rulebook (I thought it was severely vague at many pages), but a great fun rulebook. Thumbs up.

I myself am still tempted by Galleys and Galleons. So please tell us more!

I need to play more games, but all in all the sailing/movement/maneuvering works pretty well. As stated, I nee to play more games, but I have some reservations about the combat system - I just don't know how to alter it without writing a whole new set of rules...

Some ideas for amendments here http://www.hksw.org/Files/DBAaaaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhh.pdf

I've been thinking the EXACT same things about sails and anchors, just did not get around to write something down, yet!  lol

I shall take a closer look at this, for sure, thanks!
