Warlord is posting plenty on Black Seas.
I thought 40K was hideously overpriced. But this project takes the cake.
$38 for USS Constitution
$38 for HMS Victory
$38 for l’Orient
The Classic GW model of charging a fortune for “the good stuff”, but only an arm and a leg for fleets.
These are 1/700 ships. But the box they come in is pretty.
A friend got a nice Dover type book for $17 which he photocopied to get quite fleets. We just did the Battle of the Capes, where my seamanship was dreadful.
He got the rules from Free Wargaming Rules”.
I calculated that he could do Trafalgar for less than $1000.
Oh, yes. Judge Dredd. Warlord has more important things to gouge the customer over.
Well, I just spent 150 USD on this, getting a total of 18 ships, plus all the fixin’s. Expensive? I thought long and hard about doing it, but... the same ships in pewter would cost me 60 USD from Valiant in 1:2000, with no greeblies and no rules. Seems reasonable to me. I don’t know if 38 bucks for the Constitution is reasonable, but I have to admit, I am sorely tempted.
