    And it’s only after I got my 3Dprinter I started batch work.

    Somehow printing five ships at a time made me prime them in batch and then paint the deck in batch and then the hull. By that time I...

    If you can go 3D print there are several good prints by Simon Mann and Henry Turner.

    I think Simon’s made four different Spanish 74s (San Joaquin, San Juan Nepomuceno, San Ildefonso, Montañes) and...

    There were a few 64s in most big battles, so they're quite useful although one is usually enough for tens of 74s if you're setting up the big battles all by yourself.

    A first rate, two third rates, two sixth rates and a fifth rate or two are a good size for each navy. Add a sloop and you can play most of our solo games.

    There are differences between the ships even in the same size. They still play reasonably well but it’s not completely fair.

    I would recommend a second starter to get more ships, shipmats and...

    Ah it’s finally open to comment.

    It was a riveting read and great pictures. What a close call. Another turn and the fire may have changed the outcome.

    Everyone knows that the daily ration is a gallon of beer or half a pint of rum.
