Naval Thunder: Bitter Rivals

I've been thinking about naval wargaming a lot recently, as it was one of the things I set out to do more of this year but with limited success, apart from some print and play games in the summer holidays. I have plans to develop my on-going WW2 naval projects, both in 1/3000th and 1/600th scale, so have printed off some alternatives to Victory at Sea which didn't really float my boat.

The one I'm most impressed by is Naval Thunder, especially as it has a supplement, Bitter Rivals, that includes the French Mediterranean fleet along with the Italians, British and Germans. I'm also looking forward to Rory Crabb's next set of fast play naval rules, Age of the Battleships, which I'm hoping will be very much along the lines of his neat pre-dreadnought system.

All very much on the 'to do' list for 2017!


  1. Now you've got me thinking about naval games!

  2. The big plus for me is that it's relatively cheap, easy to paint and requires little or no terrain!
