Am TAD for the next few weeks, and daily focus not on wargaming.
I left my three projects in various stages of completion pending return. Sigh.
However, I did bring few modest pursuits/games.
These are inexpensive plastic ships featuring galleys, junks and sailing vessels. The galleys and junks are perfect for my East Africa Campaign, while the sailing vessels tend to be more 18th century than the mid-16th centrury. The components are punched out from credit card looking templates. While simplistic, and adorned with logos, they pass muster as an inexpensive way to fight small fleet actions.
The naval aspects of the campaign will be secondary, so building fleets for the Chinese, Turks and Portuguese without a considerable investment of money, time and effort is a most welcome development.
I am also working with an old set of WRG rules for galley warfare as a supplementary system. I downloaded the Galleons and Galleys rules in PDF at the Wargame Vault.
