Great Naval Battles of Chuck Heston, 15mm galleys

Yes! After years of sitting idle in the storage closet, Great Naval Battles of Chuck Heston (also known as Great Naval Battles of the Silver Screen) was back in play. My brother and I use to run this game at Nashcon back in the early nineties, using the old Minifigs My Galley Salley ships (by the way if you have 1 or 2 gathering dust let me know). Spent a few days painting up a few more galleys and some crew for a new total of 27 ships! I let everyone know by email and via Facebook, it pays to advertise if you want a good turnout. 10 players showed up, with  running the game.
Romans with Greek and Rhodian  allies (Lots of infantry and seamanship with the Rhodians)
Hellenistic Monarch with Greek and Eastern allies. (Lots of machines and archery)

As usual some players attempted a little tactical maneuvering but it quickly turned into a brawl.
Slim Roman victory in the end.
