I have done a little thought piece on the blog about getting the most out of a wargaming opportunity, in this case,
The Four Days Battle of 1666.
Read about it here:


Some photos from the scenarios in various scales here

It's a beautiful article, and a bit of advertising too.

(it'll slip pass the Editor I bet)

You ought to sell sea mats using the graphics seen in these pics, if you haven't thought of that already?

Thanks. Never thought about getting the sea mats done commericially. There is an idea there!

If you move on the idea, offer matching ship bases with the same textures too, if possible, I did that for an ACW ironclads setup I made (anything that makes getting a game system up and running asap, and still looking good is always a plus) -

That is a tremendous mat. Your models look splendid too and the overall look of the game is very attractive. Tops marks. Do you have a website?
I also made brown water boards in the same style

Oh that looks so good!

I do my blogging (some would say forum hogging) just here on TMP.

I really enjoyed this, thank you. To appreciate what high praise this is, you have to understand I have little interest in anything pre-Napoleonic and close to zero interest in naval wargaming! But for anyone who is more into it than I am, this does look like a remarkable series of actions and you've done a great job of dissecting them to create a multi-level set of scenarios. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the actions and the process. Bravo! And best of luck with your rules.

thanks for taking the time to comment and in such clear detail. The fact that you read the piece is testimony enough! The rules are doing just fine. This was the kind of start the Beneath the Lily Banners had about 15 years ago and its still going strong so, there is hope that a few more people will look beyond core interest toward a fascinating period of history.
