We're off on holiday now for a couple of weeks, so I'm packing Heroes of Normandie and Wings of War for the rainy days. In a typical U-turn I've also decided to take some Peter Pig 1/450th scale pirate ships to assemble and base, ready to paint up when I get back.
These are destined for Galleys and Galleons, which I'm going to get hold of once they're published. In the meantime, the models will be glued together and undercoated. I'm looking forward to having a crack at them, with a small flotilla of smuggler and pirate sloops and brigs versus the cutters and frigates of the Royal Navy.
