Nothing firm - we'll be doing the main real ships first!

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.

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.

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 boondoggle or a convenient way to shove the whole project onto the back burner without having to admit that it won't be completed in our lifetimes.

* 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, right behind Victory at Sea: Ironclads.

I really do hope VAS2 does come out one day.

Matt would it be possible to sell the rules as a pdf if the miniature deal doesn't happen?

We'll certainly work something out.

Miniatures are irrelevant, a distraction, a misnomer. Why do companies these days feel they MUST have a miniatures deal in place before they release a book???? Just publish the **** rules and let us sort the minis out. I wont be buying any minis from anyone other than GHQ and Navwar anyway, I doubt if many others will.

So GIMME THE RULES NOW! Otherwise I'll just have to rewrite them myself...... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :D

I feel much much better for that...... :shock:

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 if the miniatures hunt fails, which it apparently already has. I for one would settle for a PDF version as a stop-gap. I don't care about the search for a redundant line of model ships; I just want to play the game.

The original game did well enough without models. I for one won't be replacing my Navwar fleet with fancy new big ships. (though I did say the same thing about B5!). Give us the book already!
