Chris Johnson, of the Border Reivers, has posted a gallery of photos of the very impressive naval game that the club ran this weekend at the Battleground show in Durham.

Beautiful looking game.

Very nice looking game. The creator(s) totally nailed the aesthetics. I love that the bases on the ships blend superbly into the sea surface same colors, same patterns. They even put ships with furled sails or bare spars at the quayside. Superb.

Sometimes autocorrect makes an error that seems more like a sly comment:

The 1:600 scale buildings, quay-side and fort are resin and mental by 'Peter Pig' miniatures
I bet the folks at PP would get a laugh out of that. grin

And people in Stockton would be confused at it being described as in Durham. The building belongs to Durham University but it isn't in either Durham City or even County Durham.

I'm sure they would, VW, but I'm not in Durham, or Stockton, or England, so I was just repeating the information I was given.

Wasn't the game run BY The Durham Wargames Group? …in Stockton, in the Metropolitan County of Cleveland -England, that is. Happy?

Errata: the game was by Border Reivers Group. That's a reference to the Anglo-Scottish Border, I believe.

Yes, the Durham/Stockton location gets a few puzzled messages sent to us…! The show is in Stockton but the venue used to be a part of Durham University. The campus is still owned by the Uni but it's now been leased out to a third-party education group.
