Tumbling Dice 1/2400 Napoleonics

I've enjoyed assembling the ironclads, despite the occasional superglue related outburst of colourful language, so I thought I'd order some of the Tumbling Dice Napoleonic ships as well.

I have the AAGE Grand Fleet Actions in the Age of Sail rules which are perfect for small scale games with large numbers of ships, so I ordered a couple of the starter packs, the Napoleonic Squadron (MSP1) and Inshore Squadron (MSP2), which together should give me plenty to get going.

The models are very nice and, in construction terms, are pretty much like the Victorian ships, although they should be easier to put together due to the larger sails. I've seen some examples of painted ships and they look very good. Hopefully, I'll be able to produce something equally impressive, with a little patience and some steady brushwork.

Exactly when I'll get round to all this is a completely different question!

I also noticed that the new TD catalogue lists some ACW coastal forts including a large and small coastal battery, together with a floating battery and mortar rafts in large and small formats. They aren't available via the website yet but when they are I'll definately pick some up for the ironclads to pound from a safe distance.
