Rice Fleets

Anyone really can afford this…

I started by cutting tongue depressors into squares.

I then went on to texture my wooden squares with bicarbonate of soda and super glue.

At this point I got carried away. Glue a grain of rice to each base and paint accordingly. I used the smaller grains for destroyers, cruisers and submarines, the largest were made into battleships. I also put a small dot in the corner to differentiate the fleets, so I have one red and one green fleet, each made up of a sub, battleship, two cruisers and two destroyers. I’ve also been flicking through Donald Featherstone’s Naval Wargames for a set of rules I like.
