58 pages of naval wargaming goodness - but the last ever printed edition
This will be probably be the last post for a while due to ‘Der Tag’ on Thursday - we are now isolating following Laurel’s pre op Covid swab this morning - so it was rather pleasing to be temporarily shutting up shop, so to speak, on a high!
The contents therein
Battlefleet is of course the journal of the Naval Wargames Society and the issue you see above is the final printed version that will be published. I was delighted to have an article included about my ACW collection - most of which has been has been seen on the blog at some point - and was also pleased to see another ACW article which I may well try myself.
My small Warbases order arrived so my movement trays now have their small d6s for recording strength points - all I need to do now is to paint the trays and organise the magnetic strip. The trays will be used before that though as the bare MDF itself is not that bad to look at. Also in the package was some additional hull templates - the largest size I use, both the plain hull and also the main deck with holes for masts and a notch for the bowsprit.
There are two of each and at present the mast deck is not glued in place as I shall be painting it separately
I was so inspired by the arrival of my Warbases order (little things and all that!) that I immediately slapped some glue on to some hulls that have been lurking around in a barely started condition on the modelling desk. They have moved up from barely started to started so that may be where my next building project takes me. As a little piece of fun, and with no prizes on offer other than the accolade if correct, do you have any idea what these they may be shaping up to be?
See you all on the other side.
