After summer holidays it was time for some naval action, this time with David Manley’s rather spiffing Form Line of Battle rules. Three ships a side, Swedes against Russians. Fun and furious game, but it might make sense to adjust the boarding rules to make it even more difficult to grapple and board enemy ships. The Swedes managed to lose …
We fought out the Battle of Coronel using 1/3000 ships from Navwar and the Stations Manned and Ready 2 rules. In true wargaming fashion both admirals were aggressive.
British and Swedish warships, 1/1200 scale models from Navwar. Our favorite ruleset is Form Line of Battle by A&A game engineering.
USS Squando in 1/1200 scale by Navwar. From Aksu’s collection.
This ruleset by David Manley, published by A&A game engineering, is probably the best napoleonic naval set we have played. Five thumbs up!
