I have decided to buy the starter set. I have lots of high quality resin ships for this period. I am certain the scale is right. It comes with a load of ships in plastic, however they look incredibly fiddly. It seems that blood and plunder will be used for the raiding parties etc. Anyone coming aboard?
Got the starter set. Played a demo, looks all good. Very fast learning curve and some new innovations to help movement. Also wave counters off the board under the cards. Less messy. I am away next week on holiday. Taking the set to get it built and learn the starter set rules.
Played tonight 900 point game. Three third rates and a brig against first rate and three frigates. First rate team won killing two third rates against one frigate. First rate is a devastating weapon close in.
