    Certainly interesting to me One of my playtest teams in Australia used SOG models exclusively for their games, so there is a link

    An excellent book. I got it on reccomendation, and only wish I had owned it when we did the Basque Roads game. It would have saved me a whole lot of research.

    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.

    I hope you don't mind my posting the link? You don't often push your stuff and as we've been talking about Ares providing some kind of fleet rules for years this is a better alternative until (or if) they ever do something. Is there a link to the SOG testers is on your blog? Would enjoy seeing some of the game photos if there are any?

    Im very happy that you did. I don't have any photos but I know they ran a few games at a con in Australia a couple of years back so I'll see if there were any photos from that. There are also a few people using Tabletop Simulator, Peter Robbins ran Trafalgar last week which went well

    Ah! Sorry Dave. I guess I had better buy one from you to see what it is all about then.

    Excellent! I can go looking for photos too. Didn't know about Tabletop Simulator so I'll have to check that out as well. Having just scanned your blog I'm intrigued by Project X?! I hope things move along now that there's a slow return to normalcy and your manufacturer can move forward more quickly?
