I couldn't find any pictures of the Tumbling Dice Age of Battleships range of 1/2400th scale pre-dreadnoughts on line, so I ordered some and have taken a few photos.

These are from the ABJ Japanese range and, at the moment, I have only got round to taking photos of the battleships.

I'll add some pictures of the armoured and light cruisers, some destroyers and torpedo boats later on. They're really nice models and should paint up very well.


The rest of the photos will be posted on my blog asap:

Thanks for posting; I can scratch these off my acqusition list. I guess those lines on the deck are supposed to represent planking.

I think they are designed for a wash and drybrush approach, hence the accentuated detail. I like them.

I have quite a few and they paint up wonderfully. Tumbling Dice makes no bones about their ranges, they are deliberately robust to be used for gaming.

I have some of their merchant ships. I like them

Apparently there are British pre-dreadnoughts in the pipeline too.

Thank you for posting these. I've been thinking about taking the plunge to add some Tumbling Dice ships to my lineup. This helped me decide. (The decision being: yes).
