Is anyone playing Mongoose Publications' new WW2 naval rules, Vicotry at Sea? They are fast play and seem to be creating a stir here in Austin, TX. They are probably not a set of rules for gamers who want a lot of detail, but for those looking for a faster play system.

Best,

I got online for info about the game. It looks interesting, so I ordered a set from Warweb.com. Right now they are $5.00 off.

One of the odd/interesting things about them is that they allow for Carriers to be on-board. This is a little weird, and I'll have to play it to see if I like it, but if the rules have any legs, this will mean an increased demand for carrier models.

Any plans for Japanese carriers in the future?

The game mechanics for Mongoose'e Victory At Sea is based on their Babylon 5 Space Combat game. I did get a copy of VaS, but I have yet to play the game. I will be setting up a scenario later on this month after Winter War for my fellow 'gamers to try out. If you go to Mongoose's web site, you can download for free their monthly magazine, S & P for Wargamers. In the magazines there have been several articles about the game. I do think that the smaller scale of ship miniatures will be better suited and will look good with this set of rules. (hint: need more 1:4800 ships!) I think that this set of rules is not for those who like rules that are mico-managed. I will try and stick with General Quarters for the rules that I do use.

Time to plug my Yahoo Group again LOL. This Group is for those of us who like to use 1/4800th scale Naval miniatures for wargaming all eras. Please feel free to post rules,pictures of ships and any other info to help play battles with this great scale! Robert
