A couple of weeks ago I took my 1/700 WW2 Project to the club and we had a play through with the 8 Destroyers I have built.

I've put a blog post together discussing the various options and choices I'm trying to make. Ground Scale is the obvious one, whilst the purists will look to do model scale to ground scale and Warlord Games will do Midway on a 6 x 4. I'm looking for something in between, so I've started on a 12 x 8.

I've used my own rules, I know they work as we've been using them for 25 plus years, let the games begin.

Brilliant looking ships!

Great looking game!
1. I know you don't technically have "scenery" in a naval game, but the splash markers and the foam at the bow on the ships look very, very good. The ships are also quite well painted.
2. I have been mulling over engagements in the Adriatic in 1940-41 between Italian and Greek destroyers, so I will be watching for your next post!

Sounds and looks like fun.

Love the large vessels.

I've thought about doing something similar with this and 1/600th – 1/700th scale vessels from time to time.

Looks like it is great for destroyer actions and below.

I've even thought about doing portions of a convoy battle with large models like this, but obviously not the entire convoy (unless it is a really small one), due to cost for so many merchants. 1/600th 1/700th scale subs, escorts, merchants, and aircraft all milling about in close quarters could be a lot of fun.

Would love to do some capital ship battles on the floor too using this scale, but I suppose 1/1200th might be a little more practical.

Looking forward to more battle reports.

Seems to me all those fantastic ships are just an excuse to make shell splashes. :)
