Some modern Ships for Shipwrecked
First off apologies in the massive gap between posts, I’ve been quite busy. As well as painting a big chunk of this lot I’ve been seeing some friends in different corners of England (manly the very North eastern bit and the east midlands bit) and generally trying to enjoy the great outdoors in-between the bad weather, I’ve had two climbing trips snowed off all ready this year oh well. I’ve also managed to get myself a new job which I’m very excited about starting.
Recently I’ve got in a few games of shipwrecked the first of these made me rebase all my ships on smaller bases. The ground scale just looked really odd with the size of base I was using. I’m much happier now ships aren’t sitting 3NM apart in game scale, it makes it easier for ships to defend each other. The games where all good fun and I think my head now understands the mechanics of the game. Playing theses games has really made me realise how important a good scenario is with modern naval gaming, it’s so easy for a game to just end up being a missile fest (not that isn’t fun) where you can pretty much work out the result based on the first combat turn.
Anyway here are some pictures of my forces so far. I have US, soviet, UK and Danish mostly from the 80s and early 90s. I’ve got a load of 90s and 00s Japanese, Norwegian, UK and German ships arriving soon so that should open up some different games.
As always ships are NAVWAR 1:3000, aircraft cap aero 1:1200
