Following a request from another member* of Sheffield Wargames Society I brought along my Iron Ships and Wooden Heads game. I mentioned this game a while back - see here for the earlier post and here for the scenario briefing. The game was set in the 1930s and involved two (entirely fictional...) South American countries.
This scenario takes place after a period of rising tension between the
Basque Republicand the . The main issue is that of the disputed Republic of Castile Purile Islands (Islas Purilas?) which lie some 200 miles east of the mainland, with the Basque Republic to the north-west, and the to the south-west. This scenario can be played on a six by four foot table, laid out as follows: Republic of Castile
wo small (no more than 6 inches long) islands in the south-eastern corner of the table, and a small island in the centre of the table. Puerile Islands - t
Jerry, Mark and Kayte led the Navy of the Basque Republic while the Castillian fleet was admiralled by Martin and welcome new arrival and old friend Tim C. Above is one of the Basque squadrons - a pair of destroyer flotillas lead a battleship, carrier and light cruiser. All 1/6000 scale Hallmark ships from my collection.
