Dystopian Naval Battle

Took me over a week to get around to posting these.
We did a four fleet game with each of the base fleets at Pair a Dice games on February 26.
It was a back and forth battle with two new players D and J playing the Prussians and Blazing Sun repectively.  JM took his British and I had my Americans.
On my flank the Prussians and I got stuck in quite quickly.  Prussians have taken good damage here.

My American Frigates are screening the Cruisers

Meanwhile, the British Fleet is holding back.

The Prussian smaller ships had a hard time due to work of the FSA Kentucky
The Prussian Battleship turned the tables and Chewed up the lighter FSA ships while taking damage.  This left enough damage on me that by the time the Blazing Sun ships showed up they reduced me to a badly damaged cruiser and the Kentucky all nicked up.

The Kentucky then forgot how to target the enemy and was brutalized by the Japanese Battleship.  In the meantime the British fleet had been obliterated by the Japanese.  In the end, the Prussians, Americans and British were sunk to the last ship.  The Japanese Battleship was lightly damaged, Cruisers were gone and a handful of Frigates supported the Battleship.
We have hashed out a simple set of campaign rules and will start a campaign relatively soon.  I expect more to follow.
