I have the rules from Seas of Blood but no ships for it.

Some of the commercial ships are good for Empire and Bretonians but Skan and stuff is a no no.

Nice minis, Kharn. Love the fact you've been digging up some of your old stuff lately. Blast from the past.

Yes, they were in an expansion I believe. You could also have Dark Elf Black Arcs :grin:

No the black Ark was in the original rule set but the Skaven and the Choas were in Seas of Blood.

Played a game tonight Fed will die slowly and in his sleep!

In short Heph, yes... we caught that thing that Kellen had... I think they call it aging... it makes your hair fall out and your skin wrinkly. Soon you'll feel the urge to wear your pants higher and complain about young people. Brace yourself friend.

Man O'War was brilliant, despite how some people seem to think it was rubbish (along with every game they don't like!). I have the main game and both supplements, plus sizeable fleets for the Bretonnians, Empire, Dwarfs, Chaos, Dark Elves, Chaos Dwarfs and even a Norse Kingship! It was a great game.

Well I can't say I played Man O war, did think it looked cool first time I saw it. But alas it aint a ship for me unless it is several km long and has a warp engine! :grin:

Don't think the Skaven didn't try it!

Ah yes Norse, we don't care that you lot have cannons we have large axes and are going to board you....How hard was that.

Skaven stuff was as usual dangerous, but a game in a box like they used to do.

Ah the good old days.

I decided to have myself placed in a massive shiny chair-like device to prevent that... Oh hell, now I've given my identity away >.>

I know those chair thingys. You need to watch those, there was a program about them the other night - apparently they have some inherant manufacturing flaws - they may be doing a re-call.

Brettonian fleets rock/rocked the kasbah... Broadsides? Yes please!

They were great if people mis judged the amount of space between their ships and a squadron of corsairs managed to slip between and hit them from both sides with a strength 3 broadside at point blank range!
