Kremmen You didnt say how may carriers you had ? It took about a dozen torpedoes + bombs to sink Yamato, and if you factor in all the ones that missed thats a helluva lot of ordenance to sink 1 ship. I get the idea that the game is supposed to be semi realistic so we have fun playing it, I for one l...

Radar assisted Gunnery

Not completely sure about this but didnt the KGV's have radar assisted firing during the latter part of the war.

If so would this be similar to the german shooting bonus game wise ?

I wasnt demanding one now just suggesting we could compile all the issues into one topic, eg (here) so they are easily found by all until such time an official FAQ is ready. And yes Radar is a bit murky no pun intended, as to whether you detect a ship once or per round etc, perhaps someone can give ...

Really need an FAQ

Up until today I have been moving and turning ships wrong !

I thought each ship had to move half its max speed before turning - DOH !

anyway it just proves we could really do with an FAQ so can we at least compile something like that here ?

Spotting ?

Is Spotting in good weather automatic then regardless of range ?

Sorry if this has been asked already but with the ranges of some ships guns enemy vessels would be hit from table edge if this is the case or have I missed the ruling somewhere ?

the 6+ is a general figure for its overall size, weight and armour the actual damage figure 43/13 represents the fact that she isnt much better than the KGV even though she is some 80ft longer and 5000t heavier I am probably totally wrong about this :) Just think what the KGV would have been like if...

yes they are very nice models

Seems a shame to omit Vanguard when they/he did so much of the incomplete ships

Anyway that apart the range is farily large which should keep us happy and the prices mean I can buy both British and German Fleets without breaking the bank.

Decent 1:6000 scale ships

I currently have 1:3000 scales ships but as my life has gotten more hectic I find space a problem so I am considering changing to 1:6000 scale

I know hallmark manufacture this scale but are there any others in the UK

Thanks Pete

Is there any chance that MG will give us a PDF maybe with the corrections on for the rule set ? Also do we get a next set with all the ommissions in etc before we go down the road of the "what ifs" which do not appeal to me personally.
