KMH with Black Seas Ships

Post by baxterj » Mon Oct 07, 2019 12:45 am

Given the BS ships are 1/700 scale, has anyone re-worked the KMH movement, firing etc to use them?

Not yet. I intend on using the "To Covet Glory" supplement for lake battles using large scale ships - It was written with larger scale ships in mind. The author did not change the movement and fire distances so we'll see how that plays out. (Although he uses inches until the ships come into range.)

Although the KMH rules were written with 1:1200 scale ships in mind, I play them with 1:2400 models and have never felt the need to adjust movement or ranges. Both are abstractions and there is no real sea scale as such.
I've yet to try with the Black Seas models and I might switch to using inches if it better suits the aesthetics, but like De Ruyter I've noted that Chris Stoessen hasn't done so in "To Covet Glory". That might just reflect the lesser ranges of the guns on the smaller vessels, but I don't know.
