Edward Sexby here. I live in the fair city of Norwich, and I’ve just got the Cruel Seas starter set, and am leafing through the rulebook at the moment.
I’m a board (War) gamer, and I also make plastic and resin kits of aircraft and A.F.V.s. This is my first real foray into figure wargaming. The subject of Cruel Seas really grabbed me, and stoked my imagination. I’m also thinking about getting into one of the 28mm games, although I’m pretty much new to figure painting and modeling with metal.
Anyway, that’s me. I’ve got some boat-building to be getting on with…5+September 9, 2019 at 8:09 pm #168181Mike BParticipant
Hi, I’m Mike. I’m from “Joisey”… YOU from “Joisey”?
But seriously, I started gaming back in the ’60s. A friend of mine introduced me to “Cruel Seas” this past March. We played the first two Scenarios in one afternoon…TWICE!…switching sides. I loved its pace but found a few issues I felt needed modifying with some simple house rules. I immediately whipped them up. I’ve since bought the starter set, as well as a few extra ships, and have hosted a couple games (using said rules) which have brought even MORE friends into the “CS” fold.
I’d like to share my modifications with you but how do I do so?6+September 27, 2019 at 7:12 pm #169080Michael MoranParticipant
I’m a late returner to wargaming in the Newbury, Berkshire area, having last played Napoleonics in the 1980s (Minifigs French & Austrian).
I’m giving Marlburian a go now as I like the look of the linear tactics and am slowly (mainly because of age and more dodgy eyesight) building some forces. I prefer the regiments to be more substantial than the 24 figures provided in the Warlord boxes. I’m aiming to complete the Irish Brigade c1707; fortunately their uniforms at this scale are similar to the English regiments. I like Warlord’s models although I’d prefer more options in the figures available.
Haven’t got around to any playing yet, enjoying the painting at the moment.5+September 30, 2019 at 1:43 pm #169115Willy MesserschmittParticipant

Old hardcore gamer here From the Detroit Mi, USA area. Avalon Hill and SPI board games in the 70’s, WRG 7th and Warhammer 3rd ed in the 80’s, 90’s was assorted stuff and paintball. Started the 21st century as a Pressganger for Privateer and drifted into Bolt Action in the last few years (and SAGA,Flames of War, Cruel Seas, Wing of Glory, ect). Throw in 30 plus years of Historical reinactment (SCA Middle Ages) and been painting mins for people the last 10 years….oh yeah, also did a few articles for this site back in 2015. Now trying Black Seas out (after painting, rigging, basing, and building a fleet or 6) while using the scenerios from my copy of Wooden Ships and Iron Men (AH Late 70’s) to build a fleet list or three.

John here, newly returned from the Persian Gulf and Barbary Coast. Bolt Action was my vibe but in the absence of opponents in foreign climes I fell off the game and off the forum.
I have taken delivery of my M&C box and some 3rd Rates (and 2! copies of Wargames Illustrated for an extra frigate and brigs). Have been building 3x 1000pt fleets: Royal Navy, French and USA with those ships, which are largely built and under-coated. Looking forward to rigging them!
1000pts or less is my best guess for the average pick-up game. Hope to see some of you on the high seas. Although as I’m in the Salisbury Plain area, I will settle for the high hillocks.
Thank you to Tabletop Battles Norway for your 4 YouTube battle reports. As a result, I will be posting some rules questions later.
PM me if you are in the area and fancy a game.
