For actions between Wittenberg and Begovians on the lower reaches of the River Oudear, involving river galleys, I have decide to go with 1/600 scale. This will give me enough space on the table to show the wider river and allow for sufficient galleys for a reasonable game.
Initially I bought a couple of 1/600 metal galleys from Skytrex; these are rather nice. I thought I should have a go at making my own out of cardboard and other bits. First attempt at 1/600 scratch-built galley done (need to do the sail yet), shown here with the Skytrex ones
looks ok, now need to decide how many to build for the opposing fleets.
