Contemplating my navalPosted: March 3, 2016
The fact that I now own enough Hexon II blue hexes to cover an area of approximately 9′ x 4′ has yet again turned my thoughts towards naval wargaming. Now over the years I have done quite a bit of naval wargaming, and have done my bit to help to popularise both Fred Jane’s Naval War Game and Fletcher Pratt’s Naval War Game. I have also designed quite a few of my own naval wargames, including MEMOIR OF BATTLE AT SEA (MOBAS) and THE PORTABLE NAVAL WARGAME.
Until recently the naval wargames that I have fought using my Hexon II hexed terrain have tended to be quite small affairs (one or two ships per side) …
… but now I can begin to think about somewhat larger battles.
It is 1914 … and the Greek and Turkish fleets approach each other.
Whilst the Turkish cruiser chases its Greek counterpart, the two Turkish battleships close on their Greek opponents.
… and I have decided that this is the sort of action I could set up and fight. Now all I have to do is to build some suitable model ships.
