Could someone give me a very brief review of Tumbling Dice's offerings for these periods? Thanks in advance.

Too bad their web store is missing photographs on many of their models, such as all of the German ships in the "Age of the Battleship" section.

I have recently purchased fleets from Tumbling Dice for the Russo-Japanese War, the Sino-Japanese War and the Spanish American War.
I was really pleased with the models and the accessories and the service was excellent – if I had any queries, they were answered quickly through e-mail.
I also ordered a few 1/2400 ships from WTJ to cover some of the ships which Tumbling Dice didn't do. The detail on the WTJ ships is amazing, but they are more expensive and you have to add your own masts on the WTJ ships.

I did complete fleets for the Russo-Japanese War in 1/2400 using Panzerschiffe. They are resin so cheaper but not as detailed but much easier to drill and mount steel wire masts. Happy to send some photos if you have an email address.

I forget to say that the Tumbling Dice miniatures have the timber decking represented on their larger ships, which looks really good with a wash.
The WTJ ships don't (probably because they are more to scale where the decking planks would be about 1/10th of a mm wide on a 1/2400 model).

Excellent models and Paul is great to deal with.
