      An Incentive to Start A Build Log - New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      An Incentive for Starting a Build Log

      The NRG’s Generic East Coast Oyster Sharpie plan sets have been selling out – we had to reorder prints 2X already.

      BUT nobody has started a build log yet.  As an incentive we have decided to reward the first three (3) MSW / NRG members who purchase the plans and start and continue* actual build logs** from the plans. 

      The build logs should be started in the scratch built forum and labeled with Generic Sharpie – by “your ID”.  When we have six or more build logs up and running we will set up a group build area for the Generic Sharpie build logs.

      The winners will be able to pick any one of the prizes listed below:

      Free registration for one day at 2018 or 2019 NRG Conference                  ($145 value)

      Shop Notes 1 and 2 set                                                                         ($60 value)

      Nautical Research Journal – all content set                                              ($145 value)

      4 CD's or 1 flash drive         

      Continental Galley Washington Plan set                                                    ($65 value)

      1 year NRG membership or extension                                                      ($50 - $62 value)

      THE RULES

       

      *“Continue” means that multiple posts containing build log content must be made for a minimum of 30 days after the initial post.  Logs will be tracked by starting date and the first 3 that have continued for 30 days following their initial post will be declared the winners.

      **Note the words “actual build logs” – no fair showing a few pieces of wood and going no further just to win. 

       

      The NRG has a new set of plans available for purchase with a free 200+ page full-color monograph .  Check the NAUTICAL RESEARCH GUILD NEWS forum below for details.  This plan set is developed for the first time scratch builder with limited tools and experience.  All materials are standard strip stock available from hobby wood suppliers.  However, it is also a great project for the more experienced builder looking for a smaller project to take a break from the bigger builds.  Remember MSW Members who provide us their real name are considered members for the discounted price.  An email or call to the office before you order with your real name and MSW user name before you order is needed for the discount code.

    Sometimes you just love a picture. And you just gotta say it. One of those pics, this. Love it.

    Yeah, if there's one thing endless gaming hours have taught me it's that the flow is probably the most important thing for the enjoyability of any game. Realism is all well and good but in the end a game is just an abstraction of "real" events. It's all about making the players of the game buy your level of abstraction. Things should be complicated enough to be interesting and challenging, but also so simple that a good game flow can be maintained.
  5. Gaming Model by Farbror Fartyg

    This is the first piece I've finished for a naval battle table top battle game I'm creating. I guess a pretty accurate description of the model would be "17th century East India Man". The flags are removable, so you don't have to play as Holland if you don't want to ... Two of the sails are also removable. That way you can swap the whole ones for tattered ones, should you sustain serious damage to the rig. The model is made out of balsa wood, paper and spare gubbins such as aluminium mesh and sewing pins.
