After thinking about it for a while, I've decided to start a gaming blog. I will be focusing on my 1/1200 scale sailing ships, since they are my longest-running miniatures period. I first started building ships and playing naval games back in high school during the early 1980's. I did leave myself a loophole though, as the blog description says "and other game things that attract my attention."

There's not a lot there right now; just a welcome and some pictures of my two latest ships. I'm putting together pages on rules (where Post Captain will be featured) and my different fleets, so there should be more content in the near future. If you'd like to drop by, the address is:

I just added my Spanish ships as the first "family photo."  Eventually, I will have all my sailing ships up there.

Oops, sorry about that. There was a typo in the blog title, so I had to change it. The new address is: https://mymodelsaili...ps.blogspot.com

EDIT:  That new address works, as I tried it from here.

Thanks guys.  I'm going to be away from the house for a week or thereabouts, so no new photos for the next couple of weeks.  Next up will probably be the two heavy hitters, British and French.  After that I'll start filling in the smaller fleets, merchants, unrated ships and land stuff.  I use Irregular Miniatures 2mm troops for land units, and they work pretty well with the 1/1200 ships.

In my latest blog post, I ponder what a Age of Sail admiral is supposed to do with all these newfangled inventions like armor and steam power.  There will be more sailing ship pictures soon, as mentioned in my previous post here.

Mr. Gill,

Thanks!  I'm learning more and more about photography of miniatures, I can tell you that.  Anyone who takes really good photos has my respect for sure.  My next purchase is probably going to be a sky backdrop so I can photograph some of the fleets in their natural environment.

Brian,

     Great ships.  You must cringe when you see mine.  I don't even bother with rigging!

Joe,

Actually there are times when I wish I could do them the way you do.

Two new entries for the blog this time.  I paint up an island from Amera Plastic Mouldings, and post some pictures of my US, Russian and Dutch ships.
