    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.

    And the ship record cards you’ve produced are excellent…Very swish indeed

    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.

    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?

    Nothing short of scrimshawed walrus ivory will do, I’m afraid

    I dig the coastline. Good visual quality to this game.

    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!

    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.

    No reviews that I’m aware of, but I posted a few thoughts a while back.
