    Default What's on your workbench for November.

    I have more Spanish ships on the stocks ready to convert to Algerine prizes. I seem to remember a post about a Spanisg ship of the line captured by the Algerines but am having trouble finding it. Can any of you fine fellows point me in the right direction please?

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Hello Rob i don't´have info about this. Lot of merchants were captured. And one ship of the line was stranded at the barbary coast , Fernando Vii in 1809.
    I has been making the spanish flag on the ships from 1701 to 1785, may be you can put one of this flags on your ships. I am using this for battles before 1785

    That is very kind of you Ferrante. I am really looking to have it as a captured Spanish ship used by the Algerines so I have an excuse to mount a cutting out exercise with my Spanish ships to try and capture it back. I am trying to get some games for my Spanish and American ships which do not get a lot of exposure, hence my building my Algerine/ Moroccan squadron.

    I started this back in October but have had very little time to work on it. Another Black Seas 1/700 ship, this time a third rate. Painted as the L' Aquilon as she was at the Battle of the Nile.

    Nothing with Sails on my workbench this month.

    A set of Space Marine Heroes Terminators.

    I'm not into WH40K tabletop, but this squad is a great addition to my painted Space Hulk board game minatures, a second flamer, minigun and some close combat marines. (...think the rocket launcher needs some extra rules.)

    Nice looking Marines Sven. One day I will tell you about the only battle I ever played with 40K troops. It would take too long here. That one with the sail at the back would not get them very far though.

    A very finely painted model as usual Vol. It is a real beauty.
