USN Destroyer Proxies

I'm working on a Battle of Midway game setup and I'm trying to sort out some cards for the USN Order of Battle.  Specifically, some of the DDs. I've looked over the Repaint Reference and the Forumini cards and I'm open to using them in the game (going to use many of them actually).  But what do you guys suggest for these ships...

Sims Class
USS Hammann
USS Anderson
USS Hughes
USS Morris
USS Russell

Farragut Class
USS Worden
USS Monaghan
USS Aylwin

Mahan Class
USS Conyngham

Thoughts?  I'm not looking to have cards created (that would be nice, but I want to start this game in a few days), but just suitable proxies from the W@S cards, Forumini cards, or the Repaint Reference.  Variety is the spice of life, so I'd rather not just use Bagley x9...the IJN fleet I've put together uses separate cards from the custom cards section and is a jumbled mess of DDs...the USN shouldn't get a nice homogenous fleet in this one either.

After staring at USN DD stats for way to long this AM, and looking at the available cards in the forumini deck and repaint references, I think I have something that will work.

The Sims-class looks reasonably close in stats to the Benham-class, and the closest thing I can to the Farraguts and the Mahans are the Bagleys.  Itts arguable that these last two classes should have weaker torpedoes than the Bagley's (which are pretty bad), but this will work for now.  As the Repaint Ref cards for the Benham and Bagley are pretty much identical in terms of stats (including defective torps), I'm think I'm just going to mix the classes together and use them for proxies to the above units.

Anybody got any other thoughts?

nope sounds good to me.  Looking at the same the Bagley looks like a good representative piece.

I think that you are on the right track here.  Running with what we have available (or without going totally outside the box) it sounds like you have a pretty good plan as far as what to proxy in for specific units.  Good luck!

Your basic stats should be
Sims Class
MG 4/4/3
ASW 4
Torps 2/2/-/-
Hull 2/7/2
Farragut Class
MG 4/4/3
ASW 4
AA 5
Torps
2/2/-/-
Hull 2/6/2
Mahan Class
MG 4/4/3
ASW 4
AA 5
Torps 2/2/1/-
Hull 2/7/2


I can do SAs for each ship if you want
