1/700 WW2 Naval Test Game
« on: November 27, 2022, 05:11:49 PM »








https://yarkshiregamer.blogspot.com/2022/11/first-1700-ww2-test-game-bismark-updates.html

A couple of weeks ago I took my 1/700 WW2 Project to the club and we had a play through with the 8 Destroyers I have built.

I've put a blog post together discussing the various options and choices I'm trying to make. Ground Scale is the obvious one, whilst the purists will look to do model scale to ground scale and Warlord Games will do Midway on a 6 x 4. I'm looking for something in between, so I've started on a 12 x 8.

I've used my own rules, I know they work as we've been using them for 25 plus years, let the games begin.

... and Warlord Games will do Midway on a 6 x 4....

This just about made me spray coffee across my keyboard and monitors, nicely phrased.

Loving the look of this, the ships and seascape bases and shell splashes and all look great and tie together really well. You've helped inspire me to get back into my 1/1200 scale naval project after about two years of sod-all, so thank you for that.

And if my coastal naval project expands into full on naval warfare with units larger than destroyers, that'll probably be entirely your fault, just so you know.  ;)
