Sounds like a lot of people would enjoy playing the 1812 scenarios/ campaign from Flying Colors: Serpents of the Seas. Available wherever GMT Games are sold.

Missed this poll. I would have voted for AWI North America if it includes the Caribbean actions. One of the few times you could get a balances Age of Sail campaign.

Not sure I understand this result – all of these are well served with models in 1/1200 or 1/1250.

Right on, dantheman!!!

Very much agree – Lots of pretty well balanced battle scenarios in the Caribbean. One of my favorites is Grenada 1779 – de Guichen versus Byron.

I'd also add the Suffren/Hughes Coromandel campaign as a good source for balanced scenarios.
