Battle of Elli - Basing Solution

When deciding on how to base ships for the Elli project, I did some searching on various gaming sites, looking for a clear acrylic option.  One suggestion was Warbases.  Alas, while they offered clear bases, and even etching for ship names, they did not have a size of base that would be suitable for the larger ships.  I decided to send them an email to see if they had any options for this

Bob Naismith old fantasy sculpts....updated.

I was very lucky to pick up a collection of Bob's fantasy sculpts....including the dragon at last.....so thought I'd update the original post....problem is you don't know an earlier post has been updated unless you go and look for it...curses.

More on Elli

One of the items I discussed in the first post about the First Balkan War naval Battle of Elli was about a basing system.  I really wanted to go with clear acrylic bases, and Warbases offers a 40mm by 20mm base, with etching, for a good price.  But 40mm was just a tad too short.  An email to Warbases to inquire about getting larger acrylic bases made, with the ship names etched, has already

The Battle of Lemnos? No, Elli!

Battle of Elli - ships engaged - from Age of Steel and Coal A few years ago (see HERE) I picked up some Navwar ships from a chap who thought he had organized his purchase for the Battle of Lemnos (First Balkan War).  However, in recently reviewing the ships that I purchased from him and the lack of enough destroyers for the Lemnos affair, it appears that really he collected the ships needed
