I also use Navwar 1:3000, with a small number of Skytrex 1:3000. In future I may get more Skytrex/Davco though, because the ordering system for the Navwar website is archaic for international orders.

Points System and Modern VAS

I have had a go at a points system for VAS (WWII basic version) and also a "Modern VAS" version. There is no facility to upload files here, so I am posting them to the FreeWargame Rules blog. They are both Word files.

happy sailing

I don't have an electronic camera but a few of us are about to start playing AOD here in Adelaide. Ships bought, based, undercoated in stylish black and a handful even painted :)

Yes I have finished a draft with Cold war and modern fleets for US, UK, USSR and (Cold War only) Argentina. It has been play tested a few times and I have made a revised version. I haven't had any other feedback from anyone else.

May I say that my copy of AOD just arrived a few days ago and I really like it :) There are a few little refinements over VAS that make it an even better game. The revised turning, scouting rules and clarified turn sequence is very good. I am sorely tempted to try the turn sequence for WWII games,a ...

Good questions thanks.

Aircraft are meant to be flights of 2 (recon) to 4 (fighter/attack) planes.
AAMs are include in dogfighting
Kirov is a typo; should just be 5 AD
Aircraft are included in the cost of carriers; other costs are used for land based air.

Regarding aircraft speeds, I think in practice most non-fighter intercept missions will be carried out at a high subsonic cruise, usually at low altitude in the target area to avoid radar and SAMs. For naval air combat the Falklands proved this. So I think you can group most attack aircraft into ban...

Joe I tink the missile AD needs to reflect the maximum number of missiles able to be tracked for that system in a single attack, not the number of missiles or the max ROF. Otherwise defenses will be able to launch so many defensive missiles that SSMs will hardly ever get through any ship with a VLS ...

Thanks. Navwar doesn't do on-line ordering. Does anyone know who carries Navwar's range and has an on-line store?

Email address for Denian Shps? 1/3000 Type 45 model?

Does anyone have an email address for Denian Models, or anyone who sells their ships? There is a snail mail address at TMP but it is not very convenient. I live in South Australia. Alternatively, does anyone know where I can get 1/3000 scale models of modern Aussie Anzac class (Meko), UK Type 45, Sp...

For those who aren't already bored, I should add a few things I have proposed in this. Hidden movement - all ships start as a counter that could be a ship or a decoy; you get one decoy couner for every ship. A large bit of the game is workign out which counters are really the enemy and hitting them ...

VAS Cold War/Modern Variant

I haven't been on the forum for a while and I don't wish to steal Joe's thunder if this is almost done. But I have been working on various ways to do a Modern (Falklands & after) VAS variant on and off over the past two years and thought I would share my experiences. Like a lot of people I have a co...

I would be happy to volunteer playtest as well. I have two friends in Adelaide who also play VAS, one of whom (Nzarra) posts here too.

Contents of Navwar Modern packs?

I am looking at writing a modern naval version of VAS (Falklands onwards) and was just wondering, does anyone know the contents of the Navwar modern naval 1:3000 ship packs? I already have a few such ships (British and Aussie) but was considering making up some other fleets for them to sink.

thanks

WWI version

I have had a go at making a World War One version with Statistics for British and German ships at Jutland. How do I post it as a resource here?
