  1. Thanks for posting the pics. But I realize now that I really need to get around to painting, basing, and above all labelling those ships.

    The problem is that right now they are simple to transport and don't take up much space! Once I base them and add the masts, yards, and other doohickeys they will be a lot more awkward to carry around.

    One of the reasons for getting into the naval side of the R-J war using the Panzerschiffes models was that I thought that it could be a miniatures game that I wouldn't have to worry about painting or modelling.

    Oh well...

  2. Really like the pics; shame I wasn't able to get over. Still, it's given me some encouragement for naval games. I may be able to do some naval at the next meet, albeit 350 years earlier. I'm trying to get some more Renaissance galleys painted up to do a small fight between Muslim and Christian navies in the Med. Interested?

  3. Speaking of the Russo-Japanese War, these web pages will help to understand the context of that war, D.Kurahara presumes.

  4. Great Site!! the photoes are so cool! I can see myself getting ionto this period. As a club thing it could be nice to cover it as Naval and with toy soldiers. I think Irregular miniatures has a range for that period

  5. These early tensions meant that when the Empire of Japan emerged from a long period of being largely isolated and determined, through the Meiji Restoration, to become a major power and not a European colony, Russia was at a disadvantage. From day one, the Japanese were, albeit carefully, willing to deal with powers such as France and Great Britain but were less well disposed toward Russia. For the Russians, geography made Japan a natural enemy. I liked your blog, Take the time to visit the me and say that the change in design and meniu?
