Never mind. If this forum refuses to accept links that work everywhere else, then I won’t post.

Naval Command plays at 1cm = 1 nautical mile. We usually use a 4’x6′ table.
Whenever we play more games, sure!
It’s a very fun ruleset. Best thing about it is that it remembers that it’s a game, not a simulation. It gives you the feel of naval combat, but doesn’t try to drown you in details and reference charts. I’d say it’s less complex than Shipwreck, but they’re within spitting distance of each other. There are a few gaps in the rules(we had to piece together the stats for the landing craft and helicopters from various tables instead of having it in one place), but one thing this really has over Shipwreck: It actually tells you what aircraft are armed with(well, the carrier-based ones. Land-based ones are still SOL). It’s always been a pet peeve of mine when a game gives you stats for planes, and stats for weapons, but does not say which weapons said planes carry. As far as I’m concerned, any unit that requires me to pull out Jane’s or look up Wikipedia to use is not usable.
The French ships are from Shapeways, specifically “Amatuer Wargame Figures”. Thank you very much on the markings, those are hand-painted!
If I ever find the Mexican ships in that scale and a ruleset that handles sail and steam well, I’ll gladly play out Campeche!
As things stand right now, they’ll probably fill in whenever sail games need ships that small. Given that my primary interest in the Age of Sail is the American Revolution, they’ll probably see use as privateers. Seems appropriate, given Houston’s attitude towards his own navy.
