Hi,
Our local club refought Trafalgar in 1/1200 on trafalgar day last Sunday, using Langton and Skytrex miniatures and the ‘Blood Bilge and Iron Balls' rules.

Links on Facebook I'm afraid:

Interesting read and it must have been great fun to play. So did any of the Spanish 1st rates see much action?

Yes, they all saw some. Santísima Trinidad was avoided by the British I think and found it hard with her size to manoeuvre to get the wind, but the others all gave some damage out as well as getting some back!

And yet the British captured her there. She also struck at St Vincent but the British didn't board her and so she was towed away.

In history, yes. I was referring to our refight. 😁
