Got together with a couple of my friends on Friday to play a game for the first time in three months. We had a great time. It was loosely based on the ironclad Raleigh's sortie from the Cape Fear river in 1864 that turned out quite badly. A bit more success this time. A few pics to get your attention, but a lot more in my blog post. Rules were the original 1979 Yaquinto Ironclads we've modified for 1/600 scale miniatures. The ships were a pretty even mix of Thoroughbred and Bay Area Yards.

If you want people to see it, you might want to make it public. Photobucket says you have it set to private.

My lack of tech-fu at work here. My free Photobucket account does not allow for sharing, The first three links should be ignored. All 20+ photos are available in my blog post (link 4)

Nice AAR. You are right, the models are very impressive. One of my favorite periods for naval combat.

Great looking game! Ironclads is a bit clunky but with only half a dozen guns it can still clang away. George is a master modeler indeed.

Very nice game and AAR. Nice to see the Yankees lose a naval game for a change.

Good after action. I also love the Ironclads rules, using them for years with the 1/600 Throughbred ships I have. I might "borrow" your scenario for a game.
