    Anyone playing/interested/have thoughts on this?

    Do you think it’ll take off or have you seen it being played much?

    Considering Axis & Allies War at Sea died a few years ago and VaS uses the same ship scale I’m wondering if they’ll sell many minis, anyone interestd in WWII naval probably had ships from WaS so all they’ll need are rules and cards. The ships being cast on sea base will probably forces players to use their minis or not at all for uniformity.

    Tired is enough.

    I was interested in it but the ship models put me off.

    Firegorge Games is supposed to be producing a 1/1800th WW2 Naval game but I haven’t seen any updates on it recently…

    Me too. I was really interested in the carriers until I found out they’re cast on base.

    Yup, same here, the bases make everything look like a hovercraft. Particularly stupid looking if applied to submarine models.

    I was following the pre-release hype and almost gave it a try…until I saw the huge bases on the models.  Since I only dabble in WWII naval miniatures (having played around with the Battle of the River Plate) I’m going with GHQ minis and Bob Cordery’s Gridded Naval Miniatures for my South Seas Patrol project.

    Tried it today (first game at our FLGS in almost a year) and the rules are OK if probably not very useable in large fleet actions but the models are way too big for the scales/ranges used. OK rules, silly too large models for said rules (much as with Cruel Seas).
