I realise its only August, but looking at the list, thats no models released this year for Wings or Sails this year.
Yes there is the new Tripods but at this time cant see us getting before Xmas, hope I am wrong.
But as we spoke about, looking at the list of Ares games we will be lucky to see another wave release for a few years.
Again hope I am wrong.
On a different not would you mind sending me your file of the Struck, Captured and Surrendered markers please

Bligh

Hi Chris.
hope we are wrong about this but can't see anything on the horizon.
I will forward you the files but do check the sizes after what we also said about the printers/ computer problem.

Game one.

39286

Captain Duff sets up his table.

39287
The French open their account by raking Captain Kiwis 74.

39288
Following up by doing something nasty to Captain Bligh.

39289

Not so bad this time but the British still can't get to grips with the long range antics of the French.

39290

At last we have one cornered!

39291

The French confer on the situation.

39292
To no avail. They get a good pummeling.

39293
Captain Le Duff makes a break for it.

39294
Bligh decides to board.

39295
Le crunch!

39296

A bit of firing from the tops and the French surrender.

39297
One ship lost to each side.

39298
A bit of chasing around the table to bring the remaining french ship to action followed, and then it was lunch time.

39299

39300

I am sorry, Rob, but I cannot see your pictures, either.

I can. Very nice battle.
Not really showing how it all ended but I can guess anyway from who fired in the last picture.

Bligh
08-21-2018, 02:44
I will get Mrs Bligh to have a look on her laptop.
Rob.

Capn Duff
08-21-2018, 05:45

Bligh
08-21-2018, 10:46

Rob.

Capn Duff
08-21-2018, 12:16

Here are the afternoon selection.

Game two.


39313
Spanish vs English gets underway with a slight advantage to the Spanish.

39314

Beleraphon gets in a long range raking shot.

39315

Following some close quarters action Montanez strikes.

39316

Next Beleraphon gets a drubbing from a ship just out of shot at the bottom of the picture.

39318

The next action sees Captain Kiwi strike.

39317

In a further heated exchange St Francis strikes to Beleraphon, having been softened up for the kill by Captain Kiwi.
The final Spanish ship flees the action. (Actually the captain has to leave, but we hope he will join us on Sails in the future as he did stop for both games.)

Game three to follow.
Rob.

I had the same issues that I have had before, and signed out, at which time I was able to see the smaller versions. When I signed back in, I could see the larger versions.

Dobbs
08-21-2018, 17:42
Hmm, but this time I had to click on a picture while logged out for it to work. It asked me to log in, and the pictures were there in the big form.

Capn Duff
08-21-2018, 18:27
Well Dobs followed your method, logged out of site, saw the small pics, so clicked on , asked to log in and hey presto all now seen, what a palava

Bligh
08-22-2018, 03:28
I have no idea what has caused this problem Chris. If you are sending a PM to Keith about your Files, you may also care to mention this.
Rob.

Game three.

A quick game at the end of the afternoon in which Chris taught me a lot about the stand off and cause attrition method.

39330

Chris explains his tactics to a would be punter.

39331

The Master class opens with a mutual long range exchange of compliments.

39332

Captain Don Christoph deftly maneuvers out of my range.

39333

Then comes about and broadsides me at long range.

39334

Managing to close I get the better of the exchange this time although already weakened by long range sniping.

39335

Don Christoph delivers yet another nonreturnable salvee.

39336

My devastated ship finally gets off a token reply, but the damage is already done.

39337

One last exchange and then the walk of shame for Bligh.:surrender:

39338

Well done Chris and thanks for organizing yet another superb day at Partizan.

I am sorry, Rob, but I cannot see the last batch of photographs, either.

Bligh
08-23-2018, 01:52
Have you tried Dobbs' solution Dave?
Rob.

Capn Duff
08-23-2018, 03:38
More nice pics, initially couldnt see but logged out, clicked on a thumbnail and logged back in and there they were.
Glad you enjoyed the day, I certainly did

Bligh
08-23-2018, 03:43
Yes Chris.
Had a great day.
No idea what is causing the glitch, and as I'm off to duff up the Royalists from today until Monday i will have to leave you all with the conundrum I'm afraid.
Rob.

Dobbs solution worked but it should not be necessary.
