While "cleaning" up the Lair I stopped to look at my naval miniatures for Axis & Allies that WotC produced.
So I've dusted off the box, unpacked the ships and will see about a little seamanship!
I initially bought the ships (not so much for the A&A system) but for other wargame rules. Namely Battlewagon from Task Force Games. I recall playing this game back in the 80's with an old mate, I it was fun. However bare in mind that time distorts all memory about games, so it'll be interesting to see if my recall is correct.
