I had a bit of a sort out of the various pieces of Jutland material I have in an attempt to add a little order to the chaos. The first thing that dawned on me was that the rules effectively are in two parts. There is the rather nifty strategic map movement system and the all important tactical set for the battles thus generated. I pondered this for all of a nano-second and have decide that the tactical rules tidy up should come first and then the strategic dimension can come later. The big advantage of doing this is that I will be able to fight battles much sooner than envisaged.
I also have a whole raft of additional ship counters I can download and stick to the blocks including missing ships from the RN and High Seas Fleet, the Baltic Russians and also a selection of ships for (and this will be dear to the heart of Mr Fox) Coronel and the Falklands.
Whilst this tidy up is ongoing I can give some thought to the models I want to use eventually and my thoughts at the present time are leaning towards 1/3000th - purely because you just about get everything you are ever likely to need and that will probably swing the decision.
For games using Sea Battles in Miniature though, I rather fancy 1/2400th, more of which later....;-)
Two scales for naval? Ho hum....
