Stoke Rochford - 2016

Postby jonboy » Wed Aug 24, 2016 4:50 pm

Hi thought we could set up a new page to easily log up suggestions ideas and progress in getting this together.

As far as I can see we currently have two scenario options for the Saturday game.

Aleppo - Involving possibly Turks, French, Brits, Russians and maybe even Austro Hungary.

Latin American scrap based around David's suggestion of Battle of Riiacheulo possibly involving a mixed bag of nations including Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, possibly Britain and USA? Extra nations to extend scope and scale of game for 8 or so commands and to last all day.

Wiki Link to Battle of Riachuelo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Riachuelo

What do we want to do for the Sunday game?

What's the consensus?

My thoughts on what we might aim for with the event.

We need smaller commands broken down into a more fluid game structure, Jutland was great but a bit cumbersome. 8 - 10 commands with clear game goals ( possibly points awarded for successfully completing these). Commands need to be pointed out same for each, so every commander has an equal opportunity.

Commands to be prepared and listed here beforehand so we all know in effect what's coming onto the table, also so we cam prepare tables etc beforehand.

Each Command has a basic points total - maximum yet to be agreed, tieing in with Robin's Imperial Skies points format. ( For ships not yet in the lists we can substitute similar formats from existing lists)

Might I provisionally suggest something along the lines of:

1 x Battleship - Command/ Squadron Flagship
2 x Heavy Cruisers
2 x Light Cruisers
6 - 8 Light Torpedo/ Rocket Nef.

Enough Capital assets to pack a pumch if used carefully, as well as light Torpedo/ Rocket Nef to cause suitable havoc :D / or Commanders make up their own Squadron as long as iy does not exceed points limit, you may want to blow it all on say 4 battleships! say.

Again these are merely suggestions but may help to enable all players to be involved with the game from the off and when engaged, nit feel they are facing impossible odds.

Cheers Jon

Will probably beef up the Picket Squadron with an additional two Batton Rouge Heavy Cruisers at Colours to give it a bit more punch as an independent command. The Idea of the Picket Squadron is that it represents the first stage of Roosevelt's expansion of the Great White Fleet so is comprised of the original Brigade US fleet models. The later ships are represented by the Austro Hungarian models as they tie in more with period pictures of the Great White Fleet as it stood at the turn of the century.

An additional flotilla of 4 Hunley TB's will also flesh out the command.

This will give the Squadron Command a further 50 pts for the Heavy Cruisers and an additional 16 points for a further flotilla of Hunley Torpedo Boats.

There is a lot of email activity going on which is great re the conference but what I envisag ethis page/ thread is being is a one stop place to go to, to check on progress, what needs to be done and listings of peoples contributions in terms of fleets/ Commands etc.

Hope you find it useful and have added the US contingent for starters.

Cheers
