Anaconda


I was reading the latest edition of the Naval Wargames Society newsletter the other day and picked up a reference to this American Civil War riverine campaign, which is designed for any set of ironclad rules rather than a specific system. I thought it looked interesting and might give me some ideas for a mini-campaign for the Second Schleswig War in the Baltic. It's not the same set up at all but the mechanics are what I'm really interested in as well as things to include such as repairs and reinforcements, weather effects and so on. I'm also interested in 1/600th scale ACW naval gaming as well, so it will be a useful resource either way. I'm starting to think that the rest of 2016 may well have a distinctly nautical focus?

  1. For what it's worth, the author made them freely available in the files area of the Ironclads Yahoo Group: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ironclads/files

    He also uploaded his Capital Navies rules for the Viginia blockade and these use rather different mechanics...
