2mm lads. "Perhaps the most realistic wargaming scale." Take that!

That is an insane level of detail for 2mm

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Oh, Banzai, this was so delicious.
Due to the usual probelms of funds not being voted by Parliament, King Charles had put much of the english fleet into ordinary.
This let the Dutch attack into the Thames river and burn or capture many. 
A real example of assuming the enemy is ready to surrender.

Thank you. That's my ignorance...I can't see that link at work; they're blocking it because it's "social media." Yet I can get here, and on Facebook and on Imgur...sigh.  :doh:
