Over the past year I have participated in several game of "Form on the Admiral's Wake" at two different clubs. Having enjoyed the games I purchased some ships from Forged in Battle and had a custom deck of cards made by ArtsCow.

Nice ships!

FoAW is a great game for large fleet actions. Very enjoyable.

One of our UK group chaps played and enjoyed this game at Historicon 2017.

Where can these be purchased?

BrianW, email at lecoqfou at gmail if you need to get ahod of the author to purchase a set. He has authored some other real fun and quickplay naval and land wargames.

williamb, you and I may have exchanged broadsides. I've played with Brian, the author, quite a few times. I have the Trafalgar, Nile and Copenhagen fleets from Forged in Battle. I need to get my backside in gear and paint all of them! Incidentally I believe Brian's fleets are from Lamming Miniatures: link

I have added the email address provided by Prince Alberts Revenge to the blog post. Thanks for helping.

WilliamB, sorry for the confusion. That's actually my email address (I didn't really clarify that in the post above), I didn't know if the author wanted his email address posted publicly on the web so I always just have people email and I provide them with the author's contact info. I, on the other hand, have no problem with my email out there.

My apologies. blog post edited. I hadn't included his email address for the same reason.

Martin Goddard: It's very possible your man played in my game at Historicon 2017. I ran several 'unoffical' FotAW games while I was there. 'Unoffical' because I didn't have anything registered, they were just pick-up games at an available table.

These are my go-to rules for conventions/clubs.
