Victorian steampunk wargame? By Jove!

Obviously we'll have to wait and see the rules/ miniatures to come out, but this could be quite cool...

There was an article about it on Table Top Gaming News, they also had a picture of one of the models.

You can find the article here;

Yeah - the Spartan Games website gives a map, details of the first 4 nations (Prussia, Britain, Japan and America) as well as sample models for each faction. Ships, tanks and airships (like the great one on your link) all feature. How we're going to get such detailed mustaches on such small models though...

Looks interesting...

What do the other games based on the same system play like?

Sure I'd be up for this, obviously not this week what with the campaign day, then I'm away the week after... but the one after that?

not sure about that, it's the better halfs birthday and I would expect she will want to do something :)

We can work it out.

Looks like an interesting game. Some of the images of the models look quite cool.

I wouldn't mind playing some more Uncharted Seas, especially since they have the second edition of the rule book out which should have fixed the rules and balanced the fleets (not to mention including the new ships and fleets in the rule book). May have to pick it up.

Got a copy winging through the post if you're about and want to have a look before you buy one Matt.
