4Ground has put together a Two-Player Starter Set of their MDF ships for use in the World War II naval game Admiral by Luxlu. The 1:1850 scale miniatures here include the Royal Navy and the German Navy so you can get stuck into some classic battles.

This Starter Set can be used alongside the Free Simplified Admiral Rules which are available from Luxlu as a way to dive in and enjoy some naval wargaming on the tabletop. As well as the rules, all of the additional options you need are available from their website too.

Admiral Ships #1 - 4Ground

Each of the ships is really nicely detailed for MDF kits and they seem like a fun way to pick up a cheap and cheerful set of miniatures. You would just need to spray or undercoat these grey before getting stuck in with a wash and a bit of highlighting here and there.

Admiral Ships #2 - 4Ground

When it comes to the options here for both, this is how each of the fleets measures up...

  • HMS Prince Of Wales Battleship
  • HMS Norfolk Heavy Cruiser
  • HMS Gloucester Light Cruisers x2
  • O-Class Destroyers x4

On the other side of things, you've got the Germans and their fleet includes...

  • Scharnhorst Battlecruiser
  • Blücher Heavy Cruiser
  • Leipzig Light Cruiser
  • Nürnberg Light Cruiser
  • Z-Class Destroyers x4

This is pretty neat and a good way to maybe test the waters when it comes to a naval wargame. If you're not too fussed about diving in to snag a two-player set then you can also buy all of these elements individually too.

Admiral Ships #3 - 4Ground

Could you see yourself diving in and checking out these MDF kits whilst giving Admiral a go? You don't have to use these miniatures for Admiral either and they would no doubt work for a myriad of other games out there too.

Are you going to be checking these out?
