    Couple of points. There’s another 15mm manufacturer you didn’t mention, Old Glory Shipyards. They make ships in a few different scales, including 15, 25 and 1:600.

    Secondly, you said Chris Carlson was the designer of Command Decision twice on episode 21. That’s actually Frank Chadwick you are thinking of (who was also at Historicon, so was I!). Chris (and Larry Bond) designed COMMAND AT SEA,
    from Clash of Arms publishers, now they produce it independently.

    Glad you liked H’con, I was a volunteer at the Events desk. I hope I helped you get into a naval game of some sort. :-)

      Thanks for your comment! There are a ton of manufacturers out there, so our list was by no means complete. If there are other manufacturers that you have had good experiences with, please post about them in the Historicals section of the MBS forums!

      Regarding Command at Sea vs. Command Decision, that was a total gaff on my part. I see Command Decision getting played a lot by JD and company up at Eagle & Empire, and I somehow got my wires crossed!
