Hot Damn - Been Waiting for These!

A few weeks ago Tiny Tin Troops had a post on one of the gaming sites, selling the complete and painted ships for the Battles of Coronel and Falklands, in 1/6000 scale.  I thought the pricing was very reasonable, so reached out and bought these little gems from them.  Today the ships arrived in the post, in wonderful condition, and now I cannot wait to get them on the table...once I secure a sea mat.

I really love the paint jobs, and really the small scale of the ships will be a bit more visually in scale on the tabletop.

I already had these fleets in 1/1800 from Topside Minis, which are printed ships on decal paper that one affixes to wooden bases, but when I saw painted minis for practically nothing, I had to jump on them.  Now, where DID I put that copy of General Quarters II?

  1. Interesting news item this week that scientists has just identified the wreck of the Scharnhorst off the Falkland Islands where she was sunk just a few short weeks after Coronel. Nice looking models.

    Cheers, Andy
