Re: VAS 2

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

Re: VAS 2

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

It's now next year, we're well into January and the silence since November has been deafening. Any news at all?

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 ...

As to whether the PDFs are more up-to-date the the printed books, I have no idea.

Re: VaS 2.0 confirmed!

In my mind; i didn't think of markers (thats one of my peeves with Battlefleet gothic that screams very similar to the VAS 1.0 rule set.... and i hate it) more along the lines of - If ship A is shooting Ship B, Ship C then shoots at Ship B and gains +1 to AD to indicate the presence of splashes.

Re: Mongoose minis for VAS?

Guys, the arithmetic is pretty simple - at 1:2400 scale, 1 inch = 200 feet, which means, for example, that the USS Iowa (overall length 887 feet) is a hair under 4.5 inches long. Not exactly huge, is it?

Re: AOD turning question?

Recently read the AOD rules a couple of times. I am confused on turning. Page 6 states that a ship can turn twice in the movement phase: once when it completes the first half of it's total movement and a second time when at the end of the movement. So a ship with 3 pts can basically do a 180 degree...
