Over the past year I've added about 90 ships or so to my collection of 1/1250 scale ships. We've gamed a bit over the summer, and even Manila Bayed in December. my collection of Spanish ships were mostly bad unprotected cruisers, but I finally had a chance to build and paint five armored cruisers to provide the slightest bit of spine to the Spanish fleet. My blog entry has some how to's and painting ideas.

Those are nice.

Very nice work. I've often wondered why the Spanish didn't wait a bit and mass more forces. The "Pelayo" was a semi-decent battleship for example.

I think that will end my ship purchases for the time being.

Yeah, right.

I hear you
