    Default Admiralty Boardroom.

    Thanks to a nudge from Dave, I can now declare the Admiralty Boardroom open for business.
    Rob.
    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.

    It's also not without precedent, IIRC Drake and Morgan both went from "freelancing" to high-level Official Positions. :)

    No, it's just that a lot of my senior naval officer friends seem to end up in cushy defence jobs when they "retire

    BTW, sent you two an email putting out feelers on a more fleshed out Trafalgar roadmap for Ares; it's *still* more aggressive shortcutting than my AMS would like but I think if Ares can stay the course to a ten-wave line, and if we can fit Nile, 1812, AWI and a couple merchies into fifteen sculpts then I think most of the major needs can be filled out with restats and reprints to Traditional Naval Wargamer satisfaction.

    I had a glance at it Db, but I am a bit too busy at present to give it the attention which it deserves. As soon as i get a chance I will digest what you have suggested.

    Bonjour, monsieurs.

    Need to get familiar with my new titel and read about the meaning of this.

    So if I understand right in terms of a few cannonballs more or a new mast for your flagship, a kind of paper need to cross my table, first?

    A ten wave line? I admire your optimism, another one in the next 24 months would be a significant achievement

    I did see your email, alas the demands of the fleet have prevented me from attending to it (having fun getting a ship back to sea after refit and some submarine work getting in the way)

    Didn't say a word about timetable :) and that includes the four we already have which I'm leveraging for reprints and restats. :) Hopefully they at LEAST give us some new Wave 1 decoes alongside the re-run Starter...

    Good luck with the For Real Marbles stuff!
