Wooden Ships & Iron Men:: Alternate counters By: foxroe
wsim_counters_base.png (56 KB)
The graphics used for the alternate counters, in the event you wish to create custom counters.

Nov 27, 2017
wsim_alt_counters_96dpi.pdf (200 KB)
These are alternate counters for use with Wooden Ships & Iron Men (AH, 2nd ed.). They are inspired by bkindt's excellent counters also found here in the files section. Some things to keep in mind if you use these:

(1) These are 50% larger than the standard game counters and are meant to be printed at 96dpi. If you wish to make them standard size, print them at 144dpi (I cannot attest to the readability of them at this scale, however). Most printers have quite a few options for color output (often bewilderingly so). I printed mine with standard unmodified color settings and they came out nicely (the blue background printed out darker for me, much like the original AH game counter color).
(2) Being 50% larger, they are a bit too big for the standard game board. They are perfect for a 1" hex map/mat (or you can toss the hexagons overboard and interpret all movement rates in straight inches and make a template for 60 degree turns ;) ). Alternatively, if you print bkindt's map PDF at 96dpi, it should be sized just right for these counters.
(3) The information on the counters has been rearranged to all flow along the ships' keels as opposed to athwartships as are the originals. It looks a bit better to my eye. YMMV.
(4) I took the liberty of adding small national flag markers for some extra bling.
(5) I created separate counters for the three Venetian frigates used in scenario #16.
(6) I also uploaded a separate graphics file containing the images used to make the counters, in case anyone wanted to make custom/extra counters (i.e. the extra scenarios from The General, creating your own scenarios, pirates!, etc.).

They can be printed out on blank sticker stock and adhered to cardboard, foam board, or wood, or they can be printed out on paper or cardstock and stuck to the back of self-adhesive vinyl floor tiles (12"x12" tiles are about 50 cents at your local home center - you'll need three... two if you are creative). In any case, use a steel ruler and a sharp hobby knife to cut them out.

Wooden Ships & Iron Men:: This 3rd version of the CRT corrects the 3 errors, gves Frig. more range and changes perfect rake into stern rakes of the hull. Old file was Rough draft of my new combat tables. By: Steve1501
A WS&IM new CRT 8 combined.pdf (89 KB)
I made more changes to the Frigate part of this CRT.
. Add 1 or 2 gun boxes to Frig. and small ships basic game total.
. Combine the ranges of 2 & 3 into 2-3.
. Combine range 4 with 5-6 to get 4-6.
. This increases the Hit Num. Tbl. at max range by +2.
The Perfect rake became a stern rake of the hull.
Added the carronade & ammo ranges for reference.

Mostly based on the Basic Tables.
Major changes to the Hit Determination Table.
. . 1] Separate tables for Frigates and SOL.
. . 2] New crew quality bonuses. Ave. crews are all +1, etc.
. . 3] New system for how crew losses effect firepower.
. . 4] Others
Minor changes to the Hit Number Tables.
. . 1] I added a new #2 Table like the Adv. table did.
. . 2] I suggest 1 more R on the #0 Number Tables & maybe more R for all Hull tables.
Some changes to the ship specification sheets.
. . 1] Leave G & C hit boxes as Basic.
. . 2] Increase Hulls on Frig by 75% and SOL by 50% more.
. . 3] Reduce the Frigate Rigging Sec., but not the SOL.

Please, lets have a discussion.

Wooden Ships & Iron Men:: Rough draft of the rules for my variant or new game. 99% done. By: Steve1501
a WS&IM variant rules 4.pdf (213 KB)
This variant or new game using WS&IM components for small actions uses:
1] Old movement rules but with a new scale of 75 yds/hex & 2 min turns.
2] An impulse system instead of pre-plotting but record your move as you make it, action by action.
3] Side-slipping with optional new field of fire.
4] Crew quality effects the ships' maneuvering
5] Use my New Combat Tables Based on the Basic ones. New FoF rule and raking rule.
6] Boarding changed a little
7] Because of the scale change add 1 to ammo ranges (grape?), 4 to Ball shot's range, and grappling hooks can be thrown only if the ships collided [i.e. at range of 0].

I'm posting this now because I'm having pains in my arm.

Wooden Ships & Iron Men:: WS&IM Ship's Log Forms 2-up By: SgtTodd
wsim_log.pdf (477 KB)
This file replaces the previous log sheets - this version includes depth, and the tournament game items such as reloads, and 2 anchor cable boxes.

Recently teaching a gaggle of young fellas to play I found they were having difficulty dealing with their ship's logs. I've played this game since it first hit the shelves, and I'm used to the old logs, where bow guns are left, stern guns right, left is up, right is below, and the rigging's at the bottom; but even I was having problems with these older eyes, so...

I cobbled these log forms together to address the issues I found in the field. The lay-out is more intuitive, the boxes are half-again larger, and things are arranged with a top-down view like the counters, rather than the profile view of the tournament rules logs.
