Re: VAS 2

After two months of reading first the Basic Rules thread and then the Open Playtest thread, I stand by my message from May 3, 2018. Contrary to your statement at that time, the books are nowhere near completion except for the scenarios. If they were, you would be getting questions about one rule or ...

Re: Trying to Identify a Ship

Arethusa-class? The layout of the three dual main battery turrets and the four single AA guns is right, although the stern looks a bit short, but that's as far as my antique eyes get me.

Re: VAS 2

A quick read-through of the posts should make it clear that the rules are no more complete than the line of miniatures. Umm... We haven't posted the full rulebooks yet (of which there will be three in the set, all three almost complete - need to work on Coastal Invasions, the odd background piece, ...

Re: VAS 2

I suggest that anyone who still harbors the hope that VaS2 will be published within our lifetimes should definitely drop in on the Victory at Sea Playtesting - Basic Rules thread as Matt suggested above. A quick read-through of the posts should make it clear that the rules are no more complete than ...

Re: VAS 2

I'm sorry, but having re-read the article in State of the Mongoose, I am not convinced. I notice that Victory at Sea: Ironclads will now be coming out after VAS 2, even though it was allegedly finished and only waiting for the layout queue (how may years ago was that?). The miniatures snipe hunt see...

Yeah, well, we all know that Mongoose can talk the talk but I'm still waiting for them to walk the walk.

Re: VAS 2

Currently in development, it is a new edition of VaS! The above is the first official company comment (second message overall) on this thread; it will be one year old on Saturday of next week. Prior threads on the same subject that go back at least to 2012 were filled with what can at best be calle...

Re: VAS 2

Okay, Matt, what's it going to be? In your last reply to one of my messages you indicated that the search for miniatures fell through but you're going to keep going with it, but in your reply to AdmiralGrafSpee you're talking about working something out to make a PDF version of the rules available i...

Re: VAS 2

* We have been looking at something like £10 for a large Battleship. Of course that will be adjusted by inflation, so by the time they come out, that will be closer to £1000. :twisted: I wouldn't worry too much about that, since the rulebook will still be waiting for a spot in the layout queue, rig...

Re: VAS 2

Just to recap, the arrangement we had set up for VAS2 fell through - we are still looking though! Just to recap, making the publication of the rulebook contingent upon the availability of a non-existent (and rather pointless) proprietary line of miniatures is either a first-class merchandising boon...

Re: VAS 2

And it's now the 1st of October in the year during which VaS2 was due to be released "end of March-ish". In order for this to rank as anything close to the truth, March would need to be minimum of 214 days long, assuming the rules were to be released today. Which, of course, they won't be.

Re: VAS 2

Well it's the 23rd of September and, if David Reade's prophecy turns out to be accurate, the world is going to end without WAS2 seeing the light of day. What a surprise.

Re: VAS 2

If you haven't managed to find a manufacturer for your naval miniatures by now (and it's been at least 18 months), you never will. That is not the spirit of Dunkirk, Sir! We are talking to a new company about VaS miniatures right now; they have already done a few prototypes for us, and they are loo...

Re: VAS 2

I know, I know :) Ironclad is complete, playtested and ready to go - we just need to find space in the layout schedule. And make the decision of whether it comes before or after WWII. As far as WWII is concerned, it is currently undergoing a re-write (mostly streamlining) but the big factor with it...

Re: VAS 2

Okay, I've finally figured out what's causing the delay; the rules for Victory at Sea: Ironclads are still next in the layout queue but should be out by "end of July-ish", soon to be followed, no doubt, by VaS2. Of course, that was "end of July-ish" 2015 but what's a couple of years among friends?
