|The Battlecruiser action, Beatty gets the upper hand on the Germans and RN destroyers carry out a daring attack right through the German line.|
|The RN battleships steam on.|
|Admiral Scheer steams on.|
|Oh dear, there seems to be something wrong with our Battlecruisers today.|
|However the rest of the German battlecruiser group soon heads for the bottom.|
|Battleships start to exchange fire, not much fun being at the front!|
|One of German battleship groups pours fire into the RN battle line.|
|Oh dear, things aren't looking too good for the RN.|
|However they get some revenge. Scratch one German battleship.|
|And finally the last one, even though the British are looking a bit tatty, they still rule the waves!|
My suggestion was that the second and subsequent shots against the same target in one turn should be halved in effect, so you can still gang up if you wish, but firepower is maximised by spreading fire out. We'll try it out again with that modification.
It did also occur to me that this might work well for pre-dreadnoughts, and I was inspired to revisit and rework the excellent De Bellis Navalis along Neil Thomas lines. That will however be the subject of a future post...
