Well maybe not ships, 1/6 scale would be fantastic.

Whatever they use has to be very entertaining , something that leaves a 
mark like paintball but also makes a loud noise when fired and on 
contact. But it shouldn't destroy your model! Maybe a combustion cannon 
firing a round of exploding paintball...yeh that'll do it! Thats kinda 
why you have onboard cameras so you can keep an eye on your model  from 
afar, you don't want to be close by when the battle is taking place.
Have two teams (naturally), each team is set up with thier video 
displays and control gear in their own building. I'd say 5 to 10 acres 
of battleground with wireless access points scattered throughout, maybe 
one in the middle and one half way between the middle and each corner. 
Make the terrain diverse, add some hills, shrubs, model buildings, dams, 
swamps and even some smoke to add some realism.

gees is that the time!
