    My latest blog entry sheds a bit of light on one of my long-standing projects which is just about coming to fruition. Bringing turtle ships to the wargames table has been something I’ve been dreaming of for decades 🙂

    I remember being amazed when I first saw an illustration of a Turtle ship back when I was ‘into’ samurai warfare.  Your blog photos are good but don’t give me an indication of how big the models are.  Some bigger ships look like blocks of flats if the illustrations are anything to go by.  Can you give us some measurements please David?

    Less enthusiasm, please. This is Britain.

    The ship in that picture is around 32mm in length, Some of the “blocks of flats” ships (a good description that I’ve used  a few times) are 45-50mm. There are smaller Panokseon and Mekura Bune types that are around 20mm

    I wish someone would do something like these up for fantasy 1/700 games. They could have a real orcy or dwarven vibe to them if done right.

    We get slapped around, but we have a good time!
