Design Theory & Battleships - vacuum and wet

What makes less sense here, sir: the amorphic blob ships or WWII battleship knock-off?  Tough call...

Interesting article about space battleships and BB's in general here:
SF Worldbuilding blog
It's something to keep in mind as we design and play.  Lots of questions need to be considered in both, such as "why have a BB at all?"  "How do they fight?"

Lots of these are addressed, and I'd definitely check out this article!

Still need to get back to my WWI miniatures, and I've had a request for more naval, possibly WWII.  More likely to occur given my time and calendar is a continuation of Starfire games and some WWI ship modeling.  We'll see.

Meanwhile, have a Blessed Thanksgiving, and remember to be thankful for all that we HAVE, and forget about what we lack, for just a few days.  It's good for you!

6000 Visits! Status and future plans...

Well, actual military duty has taken up a substantial portion of this year.  Preparing to activate and now being on duty has squashed nearly all my free time as I'm doing "Army training, Sir!"  However, I'm due to return to normal life in fall and hope to work on the following posts:

  1. Prepping and priming the fleets.  Colors, method, cleaning, etc.
  2. Starblazers ships - got my tiny fleet a while back and haven't done anything with them.
  3. Another Starfire II post, preferably a batrep, and work to use the rules for Starblazers.
Meanwhile, thanks for your support of this blog!  Contact me with any specific requests for posts, and I'll see what I can do.  Meantime, keep your bow to the waves and the stars to the right.
