Hmmm, that just doesn't have the ring that "Smoke on the Water" does (which would be an excellent title for a pre-1900 set of naval game rules)….but, I digress!

I got a coat of paint on my new 28mm Ironclads. Take a look here if you wish. link

Now I need names………

I always liked the Royal Navy's tradition of using adjectives:

HMS Suggestive
HMS Peculiar

If the Prussian would have been the 'more elegant', I would have gone with Blaue Engel.

For the British, you could borrow some place and person names from this documentary: YouTube link

Then when one of the onlookers, spying the HMS Cholmondeley, 'Watch out for the Chomolea, Chomdela, Komdel…'

You then fire a broadside and announce, 'Well done, Chumly!' ;->=

Naturally, the downside is having to paint Cholmondeley…

I'm rather fond of "Gloire" for the French ship.

How about "Cormoran" or "Gazelle" for the German/Prussian ship?
