I like those Minesweepers!

Just to resuscitate things :D GQII - I found my copy in the loft the other night, must find the second book, and maybe post current stuff at the club find my boats. They gave a fast, playable result that never felt off kilter for the period. I know GQ3 adds more chrome but like Paulr says above, they seem to add complexity without result...

Beware the Biases, Bismark is a super ship, which is rather silly since it's a rework of the WWI Barden class.

Yes, she's a "conceptual successor" to the Bayern but they did quite a lot of fiddling. Not least doubling the size of the beast!

It's a while since we played GQ2 but I don't recall her being any more fearsome than any other super-massive BB ;)

Just checked the GQ II stats for Bismarck and King George V, same attack factor and similar defense factor (21 v 18) so comparable
Either would be in trouble against an Iowa or Yamato with their much higher AF and Yamato's higher DF X_X

How do you find the time? Don't you sleep or something?

Lord Speedy of Leighton

Definitely not British, but latest two 1:3000 done.

Two Hipper class cruisers, Hipper and Prinz Eugen





(okay, Prinz Eugen was surrendered to Britain for about two weeks in 1945-6, does that count?)

Nice stuff and well executed!
The only problem is that it reminds me of the mass that I still have to do... :(

Last of this batch finished. Doubt she will see action, but the infamous Altmark. I had to strip her, and dishwash her, to get her any where usable (3 or 4mm of enamal paint on her)
