If you want something nautical to complement your 10mm figures.

If you like big boats (and you cannot lie).

Just don't ask "how much?".
If you need to ask ...

With that caveat, the fellow in charge is open to requests, though his big thing seems to be large commercial vessels.
Something like a Campbeltown (Other 4 stackers are available) for your commando raid would impress the club.

Price is a bit "ouch", but... you could have an ace game of Black Ops or similar in 10mm on those...

Since you'd need a ballroom to play a game with them, storage may not be an issue.

Have the servants store them in the blue guest room on the second floor of the East Wing Cheesy

Fletcher Pratt springs to mind. If you like that kind of thing, and happen to be in Glasgow, there's a whole load of ship models in various scales (about 250) in the Riverside Museum (aka Museum of Transport). Entrance is free (although parking ain't).

I recall the larger scale models, including the "Queens" (Liners, not WW1 superdreadnoughts), Hood and King George V are all 1:48 scale.
Apparently the hull was roughed out at 1:48 for tank testing (Does it float? The right way up? How is its power / speed curve on flat and choppy water).
Once done, the same scale was used to  produce a detailed "shiny for the customers" model.

1:48 is now a popular vehicle scale for the fanboys 28mm collectors.
Imagine a Battleship Boarding action with 28mm figures.
If its Bolt action rules, your rifles won't shoot the length of the engine room.
