Re: VAS 2

It's the 17th and May is becoming more June-ish by the day. Just saying.

Re: VAS 2

Happy Beltane, everybody! Of course, Beltane is the first day of May, so I'm wondering if we May hear something about WAS 2 this month. Maybe or Maybe not as usual, I guess.

Re: VAS 2

Do the alligators know that? Do male alligators wait till April 11th and think, "Finally, now I can get some sweet scaly lovin' " :mrgreen: In his book The Alligator's Life History , E.A. McIlhenny* wrote that he had never known an alligator to mate before April 10. This became an inside joke at th...

Yesterday having been the official opening day of alligator mating season, I hereby declare March-ish over and April-ish begun.

Aaaaand it's April. I assume any further -ish will no longer apply to March.

The Ides of March are past. Caesar is dead. Is it "-ish" yet?

Re: VAS 2

I am (somewhat belatedly) with Maelmordha on this. Given the number of well-established companies already marketing naval miniatures, not to mention the new ones springing up on Shapeways, it makes no sense to delay the publication of VAS2 until you can find a manufacturer for a line of "official" m...

I'd really like to see a pre-dreadnought version but I suspect the Saints will win another Superbowl before that happens. :lol:

Re: VAS 2 Update

Hmmm ... August has flown, September is spreading its wings, and an ominous silence has fallen over the forum. Oh well, unlike some publishers I can think of, at least we can be reasonably sure that Mongoose will cough up VaS 2.0 at some point.

Re: Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

I've downloaded them and am generally impressed. However, the Cristobal Colon did not mount any 9.45" guns; it had two 8" guns in the X position and no guns in the A position at all. Per page 382 of Conway's "All the World's Fighting Ships": "She was delivered to the Spaniards at Genoa 16.5.1897 bu...

If you've picked them up and looked, sound off please! :oops:

Not an errata per se, just a note: the Cristobal Colon's 10" gun was never mounted.

Re: Anyone Still Playing... and Want More Ships?

I have the ships for Santiago de Cuba (including Pelayo) in 1/2400 scale but never thought of using them with VaS. I'd be interested in seeing what you've done.

Re: New Releases for Victory at Sea

I'd jump on 1:1800 WWI ships like a duck on a junebug. Just off the top of my head, sets could include Emden vs Sydney , Battle of Coronel, Battle of the Falklands, Yavuz and Midilli versus the Russian Black Sea Fleet, and Battle of Dogger Bank. Then Jutland and the Med and Adriatic. I can feel the ...
