|The High Seas Fleet (all of it)|
It's was quite good fun to finally get them all on the table in one go, setting them out in formation I was glad to find that I hadn't missed or forgotten any of the ships.

Photographing the Main Fleet in sailing formation was not so straight forward !
The Battle Line is just over 8 feet long, with no gaps between the ships

For photographic purposes I decided to group the main force together.
A few closer shots of the group.
And it would be rude not to include some close ups !
So there you have it, the whole of the High Seas Fleet all in one place, the last batch of the British has been based and I am just about to pop down the cellar and spray them with primer.
If you fancy seeing the whole collection in the flesh it will be unveiled to the public at the Leeds Royal Armouries as part of the FIASCO show on Sunday 30th October. It will be shown as a static display as the club members will be engaged in running the show but I will be around if anyone wants a chat about the project.
We will be back at the Armouries a couple of weeks later for the RAGE WW1 wargames event, it's a single day event giving us a chance to try out some of the battle.
From there the plan is to go to some shows with the game in 2017 but with working shifts planning is not straight forward that and finding places that can fit a minimum 24 x 6 table might limit our outings.
