I've just updated my blog with a brief report of the Trafalgar refight played out at the Staines club this weekend.....

I like the oil rig aide, might be a nice item for the Anchorage store! Fitting result in the battle, over confident commanders :happy:

Nice AAR & pictures, David!

Great Naval action and the used space for this game is impressive! :shock:

The report is vague -- what-all went wrong?

I love the use of the attached tables to assist with the approach of the two columns. Wicked cool idea!

David, this was awesome. It has always been a dream of mine to recreate Trafalgar in this scale. I have not made it yet, only with the 1/2400 Figurehead ships.
Space was a huge issue, but you have solved that problem with the use of the Additional offset tables. All ships are accessible.

What a sight, with so many excellent models as well.

Thanks for sharing.

Very nice indeed.

I especially like the use of smoke as a marker for firing, and the "oil rig" makes a very clear wind attitude indicator.

How long did the game take to play?

How long did the game take to play?

Started at 11am, ENDEX at 1600, but we did have a long lunch break and we weren't hurrying. I've done Trafalgar with these rules before on a club night.
