If you’re a fan of Age of Sail miniatures systems then you’ll want to keep your eyes open for the 1/700th scale Black Seas arriving in October from Warlord Games. There are a variety of ships available and the Master and Commander Starter Set looks like a great introduction to the system. The starter set contains nine vessels (plus the rules) and carries an MSRP of $70.00. You can also get the rulebook alone in soft cover for $32.00.
Master and Commander Starter Set
Alongside a softback copy of the Black Seas core rules, you’ll get nine beautifully detailed plastic miniatures; three frigates and six brigs. You’ll also get sails, rigging and flag sheets for all your ships and all the ship cards, wake markers and tokens that you’ll need to play.
We’ve also included an A0 battle mat, dice and rulers!
The Starter Set comes with an exclusive 28mm miniature – the Sea Wolf! Brandishing a pistol, with a dirk strapped to his arm, this ferocious fighter is the perfect starting point for a Black Powder landing party!
The Black Seas Rulebook is gloriously detailed and you can see Gabrio’s passion for the period throughout the 96 pages. It includes everything to play rules-wise, also delving into the likes of painting & rigging your vessels, campaign play, linking to games of Black Powder and national special rules options!
