This Tuesday (21st June) at the Minehead Wargames club I was given a chance to give my new pre-dreadnought naval rules and scratch built ship miniatures a test run.
The game involved two small fleets from non-specific nations engaging in a small battle between three small islands. An enjoyable game was had by all and the game provided me with a good chance to play test my rules.
The rules worked well however the game highlighted a number of minor issues which will lead to amendments to the rules. For example I will need to reduce the levels of damage that each successful hit inflicted. During our games ships were seriously damaged and sunk a little too quickly. On the other hand it did provide for an exciting and dramatic battle!
