Don't know how it would play but it sure is fun to look at.
Beautiful work to be sure.

Lovely work. I would hope the rules to take advantage of that scale become available soon.

I plan to release over the next couple of weeks. PDF only.

Your ships look very nice although I am not a fan of multi ships on a single base. Plus the fact that the fleets either fought in battle lines, or devolved into squadron/sing ship combats.

The scale of these fights makes it hard to bring onto the table and I applaud your efforts. Good luck on the rules!
