Damn it, I lost all my cards for Cruel Seas, and now you want me to get another sea game? I thought it was going to be pirates, but hey, looks like a no.

That’s a big table… I hope it scales down to something that will fit in the room…

Interesting to see Warlord release this. I do like a nice ship!

I think the sailing ships will probably work better as a game than the MTB classes in cruel seas if I’m honest.

That one didn’t really appeal to me, this one does though.

I was intrigued by cruel seas when I first saw it, although it’s been hard for me to ever contemplate dipping below 28mm for anything!! It never pulled me in enough though, however as a massive fan of sailing ships this may well have more of a chance (despite the tiny scale).

I wonder how this will compare to Oak&Iron when it is released.
The ships do look very fragile though.
I can see why Firelock chose to not model the rigging on their models.

Oooh. I’d thought about picking up cruel seas but I’m much more interested in an age of sail version. Will definitely be keeping an eye on this one

This is amazing. I really like the look of this. I am impressed with the detailed look of the ships.

Oh that is a wonderful sight. I have the ships already, all waiting for a modern set of rules for them. This seems to be it, can’t wait.

Looks like they’ve done a much better job of picking a scale to suit the style of historical combat here than Warlord did with Cruel Seas, which at 28mm is just too big for 20th century MTB warfare. Looking forward to seeing how Captain Pellew and the Indefatigable go in these rules.

Cruel Seas isn’t 28mm, it’s 1:300

torros

Quite a few people playing it in 1/600 for cost reasons, especially when it comes to the larger ships

ntrabbit

Right, sorry, crossed my argument in my own head, I think Cruel Seas is too big a scale in the same way that 28mm is too big a scale for mass battle games, the GW disease that favours display level detail over playability. Given the ship types, weapon types, and engagement ranges, I think 1/600 or 1/750 are better options for gameplay and immersion.

Age of Sail is an entirely different story, and the scale here looks to be well chosen.

that makes sense

torros

Be interesting to see the scale as 1/300 if Warlord don’t make there own it could be costly. Langton miniatures who produce probably the best ships out there cost about £50 a model. Like I mentioned about Cruel Seas I could see people maybe reducing this to 1/1200 although maybe Warlord have done a deal with Minarons for there 1/600 models

I assume they’ll make their own, they have the capacity for it so I can’t imagine they’ll pay someone else when they can keep it all in house.

They did outsource for some of Blood Red Skies

A lot of the bombers were from Zvezda weren’t they?

Black Sea’s looks like it will be lots of fun without getting over complicated. Will want to try this one out for sure. I hope the ships look as good as these but easily assembled and painted by fumble-fingers such as myself. A pre-paint option would be even better.

Warlord has sure been creative and productive over the last year or so. It’s always a kick seeing what is coming next.

Looks awesome! With Cruel Seas I was hoping they’d do more naval games =) Really looking forward to this one

Awesome, been playing age of sail naval games since AH’s Wooden Ships and Iron Men. This could replace GWs Trafalgar for me. As a side note, it looks like Warlord has picked up Games Workshop Historical banner, which is fine by me.

Cool and not overly complicated mechanism regarding the wind, I like that. Also, such beautiful ships.
