Post Captain; and 38 gun Royal Navy Frigate, circa 1813

In addition to building, sailing, and racing model yachts I also enjoy miniature naval wargames. Recently, I had the chance to work on a rule-set called "Post Captain" by Old Dominion Gamworks...Post Captain is a tremendous game, great if you want to take to the seas as Horatio Hornblower, Jack Aubrey, or command Old Ironsides running the British blockade, among other possible situations.

Post Captain is available from ODGW here.

I've been busy using some time between yachts and racing to build some miniatures, an exacting but enjoyable's my 1:1200 scale 38 gun Royal Navy frigate, just about complete!

Not bad for a first attempt, learned a ton, and my next ship (40 gun French frigate) should look even better!
