    Default A Pleasant Surprise

    My wife came home with a surprise for me yesterday. A barasters book cabinet to keep my ships in. This will save them from having to be dusted (like I've ever done that). I've spent the entire day moving things around to make room for it and tranferring ships into it.

    They do look fine Vol. Your whole fleet assembled together where they can be admired en mass.

    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 have always wanted one of those bookcases!

    Only one thing wrong there - your USS Constitution model is not ready for gaming! I actually played in a game with the 15mm Sea Eagles ships using that model!

    As you wish Captain Duff. As Captain of the Fleet you can order it so.

    Yes Vol, that indeed looks as if it is ready to take on a few of our ships at a time.

    What a very nice result of great works over there. And I must add that the furniture itself improves even more the overall looking !
