Jeux avec des galères anciennes

A great series of battle reports with a variety of scenarios can be found on the blog of the Brest Historical Games Club  JHP.- Jeux d'Histoire du Ponant.

Battle of Tauris Island HERE
 Not only do they have nice ships, they have nice scenery. (Which ship models ? Ed.)
Nice ripply tabletop.
Still an annoying tendency to throw wierd markers over a nicely made game but.......

Battle of Sybota HERE

The rules used are a modified versionof a set published in Vae Victis magazine in 1996  and Poseidon' Warriors - reviewed HERE.

Battle of Chios HERE

Very nice models and scenery used in varied scenarios to game the best type of wargame!

(Of course the blog is in French. Use Google Translate)


  1. Thanks for your comments.
    The 1:1200 galleys are from Navwar and Langton. We let them under sails, to improve the visual aspect.

  2. Glad you found the post. Always nice to see other galley games - we are a rare breed!
