About David Manley
First Name:
David
Country Flag:
UK
State/Province:
Gloucestershire
Navy:
United Kingdom
Interests:
Wargaming, photography, naval history, photography
Biography:
I've been wargaming for 40 years or so, and a naval wargamer for most of that (having been brought up on stories of my father's time and that of his brothers in the navy during WW2). I've been an age of sail wargamer for 25 years or so, and have published several set of rules on AoS and other naval subjects, as well as playtesting and aiding in the development of many others. I'm also a very keen WoW player, and my other interests include 15mm SCW, ACW and colonial gaming.

Outside wargaming, I'm a naval architect specialising in warship survivability and weapon effects. This is an excellent job as I get to blow stuff up on a regular basis, and sink things every now and again :)

Married with two kids, both of whom play WoW :)
