As I am now at a convenient point between building bathes of ships I figured it would be a nice idea to hold a mini review of the fleets so far. Seeing them deployed in all their glory is incredibly satisfying and I really feel as though this time around I have a struck the right balance between the all important look and the practical requirement of being table top gaming pieces. There is a lot more mileage in this project and indeed, the other naval projects I have touched on in previous posts. The Russo Turkish War for one with an expanded Russian fleet and with a Royal Navy squadron thrown in for good measure. I have looked at the fleets for the War in the Pacific and more recently those for the Lissa campaign - for which the Turks would also need an expansion to the models I plan to build.
In the interest of tackling something else though my next building programme after the ACW will probably be for Madasahatta. I have a hankering for some early 20th century naval action using a fusion of the old and the new in terms of ship types.
For now though, the focus is and remains the ACW and so posting pictures of the models as they roll off the production line is an important way for me to maintain the enthusiasm - which so far is showing no signs of flagging!
