|The game's organiser, Simon, fields questions from visitors.|
The models belong to the game's organiser, Simon, and are all 1/1200 Langton Minatures. The rules used were Rod Langton's Signal Close Action rules 3rd edition (there is a 4th edition). Ability dice determine each fleet's actions each turn with additional dice for more specific things such as signal receipt, boarding and collisions! There are a lot more extras in the rules but for a big fleet action keeping it simple is best.
|The fleets clash. The British have the wind-gauge and|
are coming from the right.
Unfortunately for the Spanish, commanded by Dave, some unlucky initial dice throws meant that they could not respond very well, and, broadly speaking, the game came to resemble the historical result.

Spanish ships have just struck.
