Chasseur Posted November 12, 2015 Report Share Posted November 12, 2015 This is a project I decided to take on regarding the attack on Fort Fisher and the USS blockade against the South. Blockade Runner is a board game I decided to build for our family to play this Christmas. The idea is the South have to get by the blockade set up by the North. The North have some ironclads, raiders, and some gunboats. The South have specially designed blockade runners, gunboats, and a few supply ships to aid the troops. Eventually I'll model a few ships in light-bulbs. I love the lines of the vessels of this particular period of naval history. One would ask to what extent during this horrific conflict and extensively large loss of life; the stories of which I cannot fathom came an outcome at what cost? I have read various books on this conflict and my heart bleeds when I see the graphics of what transpired. War is ugly! The board-game is a reminder of history and least we never forget the sacrifice on both sides! Fist up is my reference book by Mr. Gibbons front and back. Next two pics are the campaign map and USS ships are built. I have to start on the Souths vessels next! More to come ...
