The British were able to shoot before anything else in the turn. So that did put pay to a couple of repair orders nothing tragic but at least one Spanish ship had less repair crews than they had sent to fix things. Obviously that means that they ran out of crew to a lot before they ran out of things to patch up.
|The High shot from the step ladder.|
one day I will fall I am sure
but as long as I don't land on the table or the camera
it will be fine!
|Starting top left and working |
anti clockwise. !st of we have 2 Spanish ships rapidly approaching the action.
|The centre of the table.|
Things really are hotting up now. Getting
packed and dirty. But no one is getting it easy.
|HMS Badger has been rocked by an explosion on board. Good shooting Milsy.|
And also very good shooting from Seb.
|2 Masts gave come down|
1 on HMS Inconsistant and
1 on HMS Badger.(who again has just drifted in the wind)
Although I think that will change (ed.)
|HMS Inconsistent should get a mention for excellent gunnery as every cannon hit the target.|
|HMS Cutlass is almost in the battle.|
Shame they are directly into the wind now.
|SS Pina Colada did not quite cross the T. |
Instead 2 British ships got to fire at her!
HMS Inconsistent from her right
and HMS Pachyderm from her left.
|From the other side of the table.|
HMS Challenge starts to get close to SS Pina Colada. While
HMS Agamemnon and HMS Pachyderm keep some sea room.
|Captain Loki is moving behind HMS Pachyderm|
But they are not within range yet.
Mercedes the pluck frigate has decided to head closer to the main battle.
|Back to the other side of the table|
just to show that they are coming within extreme range next turn.
They just have to get the arc right now.
Right that's it for today expect damage reports a little later so you know what you can try to repair.
Thanks for looking and I will need your next turn orders in by 9am (GMT) 11th October 2014.
All the best Clint.
