After a lengthy hiatus, circumstances now allow me to continue my decades-long series of ATF games (that's real Alcohol, real Tobacco, and simulated Firearms).

For this reintroduction, I chose a naval scenario from the 1800-1805 Barbary War.


Rules were "Away Boarders!".
Ships are 1:300 scale paper models.

I would have never guessed paper ship. Excellent.

A welcome sight. Will AFT be doing more 10mm Napoleonic encounters?

Certainly. And possibly other things as well.

OP, I am a long-time admirer of your work.

Looks like everyone had fun.

That is great news. I too have long admired your projects. Putting them out there is a gift to the hobby.

It got me into 10mm and thinking about scenario design.

Any thought on expanding the anglo dutch range? Or is that back burner?

Well, everything has been back burner for some time now.

There is a 14-gun pinnace in the prototype stage. I've built it in 1:300 and 1:600 and I'm pretty happy with it so far. In the planning/research stage is an English galley-frigate and maybe a larger ship of the line, something in the 80-84 gun range.

As usual, though, no specific timeline for completion or release.

Beautiful ships. Barbary Pirates are something I've always wanted to do. Owned several different fleets in several different scales. Maybe one day.
