I am happy to announce the publication of “Lord of the Sea”, my second set of self-published naval rules which has just become available through Wargame Vault.
A collection of fast play rules covering individual ship actions, major battles and featuring an extended campaign system , “Lord of the Sea” is centred primarily on naval actions in Northern European waters in the 13th to 15th centuries. The rules have been written with 1/1200 scale models in mind, their inspiration being the models designed by Outpost Wargaming Services and others.
Oddly enough, I had a dream a few nights ago about a cog followed by a few rowed boats and what appeared to be war coracles (my subconscious couldn’t give a toss about historical accuracy either) negotiating their way through a shallow inlet to attack a small stronghold. I will now be able to game this scenario (sort of).
Just downloaded them. I have around 25 x 1/2400 cogs that are unfortunately not made anymore. I’ll try it out with those. I do have a few of the Outpost cogs, but not enough so I need to buy a few more it looks like!
