    Looks a nice little action Ferrante. Will you be playing it yourself, and if so will you post your pictures for us?
    I love that painting of the two ships.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Yes my dear Comte, and I would not need to make much scenery for this one!

    Why not?

    Rebuilt a few miles of Spanish coast and put two frigates on the map.

    Ferrante this would be a nice game to play out because as you say both ships are available from Ares.

    Indeed I almost bought Mahonesa last week but when they went to fulfill my order they couldn't find the ship in the warehouse it was at a very good price as well

    No but I wasn't really looking for Mahonesa, its a long story but I was ordering some planes for wow and saw her at a very low price. I was going to change the flag to give me an even number of British and French frigates in my navies. I dare not start collecting Spanish ships as I have spent too much money recently on the British and French

    I see you are from Almeria, we almost spent the winter there when we were sailing but never actually made it. Hopefully we will get there someday because apart from the city, the Cabo de Gata desert is a place I would like to visit. We've been to the area of the Alpujjaras twice and would like to go again, its a beautiful part of Spain you live in, apart from the greenhouses of course!

    Nice to hear that John . Almeria is a great place for the winter , minimum temperatures are between 10-18 degrees . Here we have the only European desert , and some lonely and nice beaches . Also we have some coastal batteries .

    I made this little village to represent a nearest village from the action. It is not historical 100% , but it was funny to made , and similar to some little village here. I had to reemplace the terpshichore because I painted black the white pendant when painting the black mast

    The little village

    That confirms my expectations of the Battle possibilities Ferrante.
    Thank you. A very good starter for new Captains to get some experience, with the headland giving an extra interest to what would otherwise be a sterile action on a blue background.
    Well done.
    Rob.
