My Contribution to INWarD 2019 – the Battle of Pacocha (also known as Battle of Ilo) 1877, between the Peruvian rebels and the Royal Navy. 1/2400 scale, using a hex-based modification of Dahlgren and Columbiad.

Splendid! Lovely models as always and the backdrop is a great touch.12/08/2019 at 17:27 #119766
And the ship record cards you’ve produced are excellent…Very swish indeed12/08/2019 at 17:40 #119767
Thank you Jim. The record cards are good function-wise I think, but I’d quite like to give them a more period look at some point. They look a bit too modern – they remind me a bit of the Full Thrust spaceship rules.12/08/2019 at 18:15 #119770
That and the Victory at Sea ones. I think they look great as is but a bit of a sepia effect might be worth a try?12/08/2019 at 18:23 #119771
Nothing short of scrimshawed walrus ivory will do, I’m afraid
I dig the coastline. Good visual quality to this game.12/08/2019 at 18:25 #119772
Yeah, some sepia tones might be nice. I think it might be the Arial font and rounded boxes that make it look too modern though. It probably won’t happen with these, but I’m planning on doing the same sort of job with Fire When Ready, so I’ll try and give them a more Victorian/Edwardian look.
I’ve decided I don’t want to play any game that has record sheets bigger than a playing card!12/08/2019 at 21:12 #119782
Cinematic. I’m intrigued by the stat cards for the ships, will be checking out the rules. Are tehre any good review of it you recommend?
Tired is enough.13/08/2019 at 10:46 #119813
