The full battle of Tsushima at Little Wars 2011 in gorgeous 1/1000 scale!

Amazing! That's a lot of beautiful ironmongery on show – thanks for the heads up!

Great looking game!

Those are my favorite naval rules. Flat out fun, fast, and without the hassle.

Nice ! The big ships look very nice grouped as fleets.

That was great.
We have the Houston Ships too and they are a sight to behold on the table top.
Will have to try Naval Thunder a try.
We've used Victory at Sea.

Great pictures of what looks like an equally great game

I will have to look into those Houston Ships

Thanks for posting

I agree about the pictures but from what I can see only a portion of the ships were used,but I guess that's because of the size of the mini's.

All in all a good time all around.

I'll be running a Tsushima game at one local convention later this year in 1/3000th scale,using a homebrew set of rules.

I wasn't there, but I think they used everything from CL on up. Or maybe it was only CA's.

I had the opportunity to play an "everything on the table" version of Tsushima not long ago, and it was a blast.

Someone really knows how to paint Russo-Japanese. My compliments, sir.

The term Armored Cruiser(not Heavy Cruiser) is what they used back then.

As I said from the pictures of the game it looked pretty good.

My Tsushima game will have almost everything except the DD's and the Russian Aux's.

It was the same abbreviation. CA "Cruiser (Armored)"

Heavy cruisers just stole the abbreviation. ;)

Sorry I have not been able to reply lately as I had to figure out my passowrd.

Yes, this scenario was modified and only included the Armored cruises and Battleships.

The night before we played "Prelude to Tsushima" which was all the protected cruisers and DDs.

Not Ideal, but it worked to keep the game time in line for a convention.

I greatly enjoyed the full version we played previosuly and look forward to doing it again.
