"somethings deffinately wrong with our ships today" isn`t that the quote??

I`m very impressed with all the small ships in this build, I may be tempted to dabble myself, if the quality of the entries continues :scratch:

I like the way you`ve done the sea effects on the bases and have the names, etc - very neat idea, way cool :cool: What rules do you use for these battles?

Very pretty. I'll agree with Richard that the way you've done the wake of the ships really looks good, especially at normal gaming distances.

Beatty to his Flag Captain, Ernle Chatfield, aboard HMS Lion following the explosion of HMS Queen Mary: "There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today."

Very nice work!

My favorite rules for naval too. Although I have never adopted the new 3rd edition rules, having spent almost 30 years tweaking the 2nd edition to my liking.
