Just plain Cruel

One of the blogs I follow  written by  fellow T.W.A.T.S.   member Andrew the Tekkie raises a few interesting points about the hobby in general anf Naval gaming in particular I have a small collection of ships in both 1/1200 for WW2 and 1/600 for the Russo-Japanese war and a long unused collection of1/600th mostly Thoroughbred ACW ships that I am thinking of selling. Also in the past I have had WW1 and WW2 coastal forces in the latter case Italians and British in the Med but have never really considered myself a Naval Wargamer . Naval is for me a sideline period.
One of my Japanese ships- The Mikasa

 Interesting but not so much as say ECW or Napoleonic. Having said that I still prefer to try to aim for some kind of historical verisimilitude rather than just A.N.Other  piece of samey -gamey re-tread tediousness with added dice. So it was with interest that I read this

post on Andrew's blog. Now he has far more Naval knowledge than I so I value his opinion on this .
 My conclusion
 Shan't bother
