Re: VaS 2.0 Development Progress

Looking forward to it. I have a copy of AoD, all I need to find is a distributor in the US that actually carries ship mini's. And by distributor I mean accessible sales to the FLGS, not direct sales that bypass the FLGS :wink: One of the reasons I was overjoyed to hear Mongoose would have it's own ...

Hmmm....the poll only allows one choice. I use WaS for all my WWII gaming and a combination of Panzerschiffe and GHQ for WWI.

Ray, I like your planes...you might want to try using some piano wire for the supports in the future. I have had very good results with 0.15 as it is somewhat flexible and not very noticable. http://i441.photobucket.com/albums/qq132/adfilter/Modeling/DSCN1240.jpg http://i441.photobucket.com/albums/q...

Aaron, have you had an opportunity to tour the USS Texas?

It's in it's WWII weapons fit, but it's the last US pre-WWI Battleship.
No, it is on my to do list along with a few others including AC olympia the last of the Spanish American War survivors.

I made this post May 11 2010: Let me start off by stating up front I do like the rules that are provided with both VAS and AoD books. I currently own VaS, oob and AoD. I bought them when I was deployed and had some time to read while I was considering a new Naval Mini rule set. At that point my nava...

Like rcbecker1 I have many WaS planes which work well unaltered.

I have also used the 1/1200 by CAP AERO. I cannot imagine going any smaller then 1/1200 as fighters are staring to get pretty small at that scale.

I like the WaS game, so moving over to VaS and others it just makes sense to use the same minis. Yes they are plastic, but that is a bonus to me not a negative. I have dropped too many GHQ or even PS models and they spent time glueing parts back on after a slur of colorful adjectives. With no more e...

You mean like this? Erm, no. I was looking at the nice speckly sea surface that the ships are sitting on and, assuming it is a DIY surface, thought the same technique would look great on ship bases... Just an idea. Don't get me wrong, they look great as they are! Ah, no the background is just what ...

Nice. Are the turrets stuck on after painting to get such neat edges with the deck? Thanks Correct...this is a GHQ model which requires some assembly. For this one in particular I did all the deck work before I put any of the superstructure on. I always mount the turrets last. Ever tempted to paint...

Best part about these games is all the history you learn in the process.

I knew vey littel of the details on WWI actions before doing the research for new scenarios. ;)

Hopefully you get it worked out. I have bought a couple off E-bay mostly from one vendor, but I did have an issue with one missing a couple items.

Less than two days remain on the 1/6000 ships. They all have bids, but are still well below retail.

Also have many other Naval and general gaming related items including a rare copy of AP SOPAC.

You can see all of it here:

Well, no idea what to think, except it looks like comments about ebay being hit or miss look prophetic.
