Looking for players Russo-Japanese Naval Game

Hi All,

One of our members, Gareth is planning to run a naval game of the Russo japanese war and has asked me to post here to look for opponents for the game on the 3rd of December. If you are interested please write in the comment section of this post.

Here is his message:

Given that the club logo features the 1904-5 war, I think we should try to do more Russo-Japanese war games. To that end I'll be bringing some 1/6000 Russian and Japanese ships for a naval game. What game I do would depend on how many people wanted to play, a small cruiser action or a grand fleet clash. The rules I plan to use are Phil Barker's "Damn Battleships Again" which are available free online.

They're pretty simple and easy to understand. The Hong Kong Wargames Club used them for some big games and there are photos on their website. Currently the IJN force has 5 battleships, 4 armoured cruisers, and 7 protected cruisers painted up. The Russians have 7 battleships, 3 armoured cruisers and 4 protected cruisers. I'll be painting up some destroyer squadrons this week and then try to finish the rest of the fleets. By the 3rd, most of both fleets should be pretty much done.
