Victorian Ironclad British Squadron

I've sorted through the collection of TD 1/2400th scale ironclads and have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to tackle in a weeks time. I plan to do two squadrons, one British and one French, each of around a dozen ships, with a couple of one off extras to add a bit of variety.

The Royal Navy squadron (c1872) will consist of:

HMS Warrior and HMS Black Prince
HMS Agincourt, HMS Northumberland and HMS Minotaur
HMS Achilles
HMS Monarch
HMS Captain (sank in 1870 but I'm assuming she didn't!)
HMS Ocean, HMS Prince Consort and HMS Caledonia
HMS Scorpion and HMS Wyvern
HMS Hotspur

I have a number of other ships that I could add on, including some coastal defence turret ships and monitors, unarmoured steam frigates, sloops and gunboats, but I think this is more than enough to get on with for the moment.
