Mixed bag of painted ships… mostly 1:2400

 

I went down to the games night at the stains war gaming club last night had two great games of wings of war (must resist new shiny things) and a load of fun! I’ll be off down there again soon.

Off the paint table t his week is a mix of Victorian iron and 17th century elegance.

First is HMS Hotspur a bit off a flop historically but I like her.  She was designed as a ram to go in to battle with the fleet but could only make 12.6 kts Warrior made 14 kts….. And no that’s not a turret it’s an armed box with four ports for the one 12in MLR, still an interesting ship.

USS Indian at 1:3000 from NAVWAR, the fist of my US pre dreads. Fascinated by these since I went to the museum in Havana and saw a massive model of the battle of Santiago and had no idea what it was.

And finally a English galley frigate from the late 17th century  1:2400 from tumbling dice. Looking forward to seeing how she works in a game, could be interesting .
