    Hi guys,

    Wanted to know if anyone else here plays or has heard of Axis & Allies – War at Sea, the game is otherwise known as “Beer & Pretzels” wargaming, in other words it is a fast easy-to-play Naval Miniatures Game with a World War Two flavour. However, for some of us more “Hobby” focussed types, we took the game to a whole other level taking it from its paper mat map to our respective table-tops, and began the painstaking process of re-painting our fleets. Here is just a few of my 1:1800th Axis & Allies – War at Sea ships that I have painted for this game.

    HMS Hood & Escorts

    Tribal Destroyers

    Mongoose - HMS Rodney

    Mongoose - HMS King George V

    Cheers guys and lovely to meet you all.

    Thank you very much you are too kind, find myself very humbled in the face of this forums wonderful work on all land air and sea, I’m in good company.

    Sorry guys, still finding my way around and don’t have captions under these photos all miniatures including the based Mongoose Publishing – Victory at Sea miniatures (which are superb by the way) are 1:1800th:

    Fig 1. This is a A&A – War at Sea game in progress showing of course HMS Hood, escorting are HMS Javelin, and the two County Class are HMAS Shropshire (HMAS Canberra replacement after being sunk off Savo Island) and HMS Dorsetshire which of course was the cruiser that eventually torpedoed the legendary Bismarck.

    Fig 2. This was a commission from a very good Canadian friend, who only wanted his Destroyers painted by myself, this was the second lot of the commission his Royal Navy Destroyers, the Tribals , the first lot were of course his precious Canadian babies HMCS Iroquois HMCS Sioux, Micmac etc.

    Fig3.  HMS Rodney (1943).

    Fig4. HMS King George V – her final fitting camo of 1940 (source – Warship Perspectives – Alan Raven Pg3 Volume 4)

    Cheers guys
