If so, what do you game?

I've often thought you could game carrier battles in these scales, in that each fleet in on its own table. You could do ASW actions too I guess. Does anyone do anything else?

Coastal craft warfare.

I've made some 1/700 models for friends who play Check Your Six. It's an air combat game, so the 1/700 ships are stationary while the aircraft move around.

We've done WWII coastal warfare and ACW naval in 1/600. I've got some Dutch/English ships in 1/600 for the Anglo Dutch wars, but haven't used them yet.

Dave Schueler and Kevin Smyth keep running air/naval games with 1/700 scale ships at Enfilade, and as a result I now think 1/600 is the "right" scale for MTB actions, and 1/700 is a great scale to mine for models of "big" ships. I also agree 1/700 looks like a fun scale for gaming air attacks on ships, especially if the ships aren't much moving much or at all.

I haven't bought any WWII 1/600 or 1/700 models myself, because I need another naval gaming genre like I need more skull perforations, but I already own a lot of Armada-era 1/600 scale miniatures and shore terrain. I never play with it, but it's too cool to let go of it.

I was going to post something but Paul beat me to it :)

We also did the North Cape 60th anniversary refight in 1/600 (on board HMS Belfast) and of course I've played WW2 coastal in 1/600 for about 30 years now.

Coastal warfare. Primarily 1/600 with larger ships in 1/700.

Done some 1/1200 Fletcher-Pratt gaming WW2 battleships firing up to about 30' across the floor in the church hall attached to my local club. Good fun, and with light cruisers and destroyers 1/600-700 would be equally feasible.

G1/700 WwII Atantic and Pacific games. I'll try and post some pics. My photobucket ones are dead. .

1/600 and 1/700 coastal-small boat action.

khanscom13 Jun 2018 12:48 p.m. PST

MTBs and such with "Fast Attack" rules. Scratchbuilt some 1/600 for War of the Triple Alliance.

I played in a 1/600 coastal action game at Cold Wars (Flaklighter II). It was such good fun I'm thinking about taking the plunge myself.

I just picked up ECW armies in 2mm for an experiment that I am doing. I think it is close to that scale.
