To celebrate the aniversary of this famous battle we have fought it at 1:10 scale.
The game didn't play quite as the actual battle, since the ottoman admiral made a risky decision at the beginning that costed him the game. Despite that as in the actual engagement the galeass proved to be an unconquerable sea fortress, and the spanish marines were the decisive factor that tipped the scales of victory in favour of the Holy league.

Lepanto had 484 vessels present, so at 1:10 scale should have 48.4 models on the table. I really think you should have 3D printed and painted 40% of a ship, just for the sake of accuracy. grin

Nicely done.

Great fight! Nice models. Tremendous melee. Long live Don Juan de Austria! (And don't forget that Miguel de Cervantes was present.)

Great AAR – I am reminded of Lepanto, Chesterton's poem – "And Don Juan of Austria rides home from the Crusade"
