Cruel Seas isn't going to get sunk by a plague.

Being home a lot has upped my painting output dramatically. In fact, I've got so much done I fear I'll never throw a game big enough to USE all this capacity!

Thanks for your time and kind attention,

Good job Walt. S-Boats for the win!

Nice work all around, Walt. I especially like your U-boot surprise.

Superb looking!

Thanks for sharing.

You're definitely right though, about that issue of scenario size, so I'm willing to be a good friend to help you out.

Those late-war S-Boats will be so over-matched and outgunned in the late war, so won't be much fun for you. Having two flotillas of Vospers is just daft too. You can send them to me, for free, to help ease your burden.

Most reassuring. Just before the end times I bought a bunch of Cruel Seas stuff at a convention flea market. I ended up with almost as many S boats and Vosper as you have. I also got a surfaced sub and a BIG merchant ship painted up as a hospital ship. Since then I have added a sub chaser, a seagoing tug, another Big transport, a small transport,armed trawlers, minesweepers, mine layers sundry smaller ships. I have wondered, as you, how many I can cram onto a table. But i that the point? Isn't more important that I have been staying inside. Isn't a good thing that my micro aggressions are being focused on plastic instead of flesh. I think we are both doing the world a service. Paint on Walt, H
