Additional Ship pictures from the 25mm Pirate Game at Historicon 2011


Steve Struebing, owner of the Polymythic Blog, and one of my fellow Spanish Captains at the 25mm Pirate game we played at Historicon, has sent me some additional pictures of that battle. Thanks and a tip of the chapeau to Steve for sending them. I’m not going to repost the writeup, check my additional Historicon post for text and addtional pictures if you have an interest.

  1. Read your Historicon Post. Great stuff and very well written. Sounds like there is a lot going on poltically behind the scenes, but I am there to play games with great folks like yourself. There was some heinous rules lawyery on the bridge of one Pirate, but our superior Spanish guns silenced the Pirate rabble and much fun was had. We held the line, let them over-maneuver, and shredded the ol’ Jolly Rogers. Miraculous wind did not hurt our cause either. Thanks for proudly commanding several decks of our guns, and I appreciated the free Grog. Hope to catch you at another event, sir.

  2. Looks like a great game!

    What rules did you use for the battle?

    I’d also like to know if there is a manufacturer of the ships, or if they are all custom wooden jobs?

    They look superb, and I don’t recall seeing many like those before. I especially like the little, plain wood colored, single-masted sloop, but also like the larger vessels with the upward sloping sterns, e.g. the red/black/yellow one, the red/black/green one, the red/black/violet blue “Flagship”, and the large red and black one, with the blue quarterdeck panels. Of course, all of them look great, but those are the ones I can recall right now.

    Any info you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
