Battlefleet



This morning saw the arrival of my first copy of Battlefleet - the journal of the Naval Wargames Society (navalwargamessociety). I am really pleased to get this at long last - I have been a member in the past but life etc got in the way and so I have rejoined after a lengthy gap - and the articles contained therein certainly provide much food for thought. The line up for this issue (no. 1 of volume XXXIV) consists of the following:

Privateers: NWS Participation game - written by Dave Manley these are the rules for use with the game and are set in the golden age of piracy in the 18th century and are based on the GW Man O' War fantasy rules. Needless to say the denizens of SEEMS will be very interested in these!

HMS Amethyst and the Yangtze Incident

Japanese Wargaming of the Midway Campaign

WW2 Coastal Forces Scenario Generator

Exercise Tiger - Slapton Sands

Options for the Russo-Japanese War - lots of 'what-ifs?'

Medieval Warships

It is a varied bag for sure and with something for all nautical tastes.

Yummy

How often is this published?

Some great stuff in there indeed! Particularly the coastal scenario generator and the R-J war what-ifs.

I was a member when I lived in Portsmouth but let in drop when I got home.

Hi Geordie,

Welcome back and I hope the move was not too traumatic on the collection!

I am not sure how often Battlefleet comes out but All Guns Blazing - a PDF ezine comes put monthly. Check out the website for details.

All the best,

DC

Hi Paul,

I am quite sure that scanning a copy and pinging it over would not be too controversial should you wish.

You must be getting ready for the big change!

All the best,

DC

You Sir, are a scholar and a gentleman!

And yes indeed- just 6 weeks to go now :-)

Hi Paul,

Consider it done and I will email you accordingly.

You must be really excited!

All the best,
