Victory at Sea British Fleet


I finally decided on the simplest option for my second fleet and have ordered a bargain pack from Skytrex for a Royal Navy force based in the Eastern Mediterranean. I've added a handful of additional ships including both Rodney and Nelson, the Renown and a couple of extra heavy cruisers, so it should be a well rounded fleet. It will be ideal as opposition for my Vichy French if they make a sortie or for the club's Italians, Japanese or Germans. It's the French fleet first though as soon as I get back from holiday.

  1. Mmmmm... must work out what these 10 points Gary is suggesting actually look like in 'fleet' terms...? Will one of these packs cover it...?

  2. I think it will come down to the priority level he's set for the individual games I.e. battle.

    I can see myself running out of ships quite quickly if I lose two or three battles in a row and some of the heavy units go down.

  3. I would have thought you'd be covered by one of the packs though, assuming the bulk of your ships were either battle or raid level I.e battleships, heavy cruisers etc?

  4. I should think so... Yamato and Musashi are 2 points each alone. That's almost half my points on two ships! I think I'm a little short on light cruisers and, of course, no subs or aircraft as yet :) We'll see what develops with the aircraft/sub rules...
