This is the scenario. I have a copy of Naumachia as well as Salamis ad Actium. I’m sure I could scratch up a copy of Diekplus next time I am at Mama’s. I also have a board-game or two which could be adapted to tabletop at a pinch. All of these sets are fine for 1/1200th and larger scales,
What I am looking for however is something to use with 1/2400th scale galleys, something that will work on a squadron basis (maybe several vessels to a sea base) and allow me to row around the briny deep sinking enemies by bursting their ships asunder – you know the sort of stuff.
The last issue (66 I think it was) of Wargames, Soldier and Strategy had an adaptation at the right sort of scale. The adaptation however was based upon Hail Caesar! which ranges in price from £20-£30 or US $42.75. This seemed a bit steep for a quick night’s naval gaming.
So, your task, dear readers is simple:
Can anyone recommend a good set to me that will work well with 1/2400th and allow a reasonable game (over in about 3 hours) with a reasonable number of model ships per side?
