Nice pictures. What rules were you using?

Nice ships!

Who makes them?

And did you paint them yourself?

Thanks, the ships are by Navwar, rules we used wrer Trafalgar and yes these I did paint myself.
The mat is by Tinywargames.
I have sent 60 ships to Lancashire games via Santa for painting and ordered a new mat with a hex grid from Tinywargames for a Trafalgar game at Fisticuffs next year using ‘form on the admirals wake’ rule set that I picked up at Historicon this year.
My current mat will be on the bring and buy at fisticuffs if anyone’s interested.

Thanks for the details Stewart.

Maybe you can even convince Martin of the merits of using hexes (particularly since mats are now so readily available) for sea games?

Such as piratical adventures...?  ;D
