So after much painting and planning the Battle of Lepanto got played today, only a week away from the anniversary.
114 ships in all, about 1:5 ratio to the real battle. Still doesn't look like enough ships, going for 1:3 next year. My apologizes for the white movement trays, it was a last minute addition helped alot but they should have been blue or clear. Oh well, next time.
Had 9 players and a great deal of fun.
The Spanish/Italian won again. Balancing the Western gun advantage with the Ottoman melee and manuever advantage is not easy but I think we finally got it right.
And never ever try and board a Knights of Malta galley!

A noble endeavor- I want to see that!

What ship models?

Navwar for the most part.
Rules were modified 'Capitania' rules from Wargames Illustrated some years back.

Well done. It looks great. Pleased to see the good guys win and the Knights did well.

You're right, not nearly enough galleys. You'll just have to spend years building even more… grin

That looks fun, and very inspiring. If you drag this game to a convention, I want to know about it.

Admiral
I roughly count that 188 should give me a 1:3 ratio
so that will be next years goal.
Only 74 more ships.
I'll let you know when I make it to a con.
