A range of laser printed card sheets that will allow you to play naval games without the trouble of painting all those little ships or if you want to give some rules a try before buying and painting a 3D fleet.

Each set gives you a selection of ships appropriate to the period and nation.

Each set comes on a number of A5 cards laser printed in full colour on good quality 160gsm card.

They are designed to be glued onto heavier card (such as mounting board or foam sheet, both readily available at craft and art shops) to make colourful counters for a variety of Naval games.

 

Naval gaming was my first love in Wargaming and I still have a strong interest in naval history and gaming. My problem was always that I could never get a fleet completed before my interest moved on to another era and more than half the naval rules I have collected over the years have never been played for lack of suitable models.

This range is designed to allow you to avoid my problems - each set will provide enough models to fight battles at sea with your choice of rules and in a fraction of the time (and at a fraction of the cost) of 3D models.

The currently available are 1/600th & 1/1200th scale Ancient galleys,  other periods are on the drawing board.

There is a shipping/handling charge of 1.00 on each order for buildings, ship counters and flags delivered within the UK, no matter how many packs are purchased.
