Broadside and Ram

My latest publication is now available from Wargame Vault. "Broadside and Ram" is a set of fast play naval rules and a campaign system covering the Lissa campaign of 1866, which cerebrates its 150th anniversary next month.  It is based on my earlier "Ironclads in Action" supplement for "Iron and Fire" which was originally published by A&AGE but which has been out of print for many years. The tactical "DBA-esque" rules are based on the principles used in my "Lord of the Sea" rules updated for the more modern era, and the campaign system updated to reflect the use of the tactical rules. That said the campaign system should be adaptable to any set of ironclad rules.

The rules are available from the following link:


  1. Nice work! Do you have a line of miniatures you recommend for the campaign?

  2. I've been using the Figurehead 1/2400 range. They do just about everything you need for Lissa

  3. Congratulation!

    Would the campaign system work for the 1864 Second Schleswig War?

  4. It would do, does in fact. I'm working on that war at the moment so if you hang on a bit there'll be a supplement or a separate book covering it. Not sure which way to go, whether to do a supplement with history, stats, map etc. for which you need the Lissa book, or a standalone 2nd SW book. Any preferences?
