War of the Pacific 1879


I've just downloaded two new Long Face Games publications that have recently arrived at Wargame Vault, both of which fit in very nicely with my naval wargaming plans for the Summer. The first is a set of fast play ACW ironclad rules, Dahlgren and Columbiad, which are a more detailed version of David Manley's existing rules, Broadside and Ram.

I'm not that interested in the ACW theme, at least not in scales below 1/600th, but I am very intrigued by the companion campaign rules for the Pacific War of 1879, which is right up my street.

Although I am already tied up with the 1864 Schleswig War project in 1/2400th scale, once that's finished I could easily branch out in this direction as Tumbling Dice have most of the ships available in 1/2400th scale including Huascar, Almirante Cochrane, Blanco Encalada and Independencia.

Excelente!

  1. Excelente indeed! I have a similar interest and have got my hands on the rules/supplement. I have the key ships in Tumbling Dice and am modifying the Huáscar to reflect the 'clear for action' state in the many images. Exciting project - look forward to watching where you go with it as well. Cheers Alan

  2. Spot on with this write-up, I really assume this website wants rather more consideration. I’ll probably be once more to learn much more, thanks for that info. online casinos
