Black Seas – 3rd Rates Squadron

In addition to the Frigates and Brigs from earlier this week, I want to cover the third plastic sprue as well - the 3rd rates. These are currently available as a squadron of 3 in a boxed set.

Black Seas - 3rd Rates Squadron Black Seas - 3rd Rates Squadron

The name third rate comes from the British rating of ships of the line. A third rate ship of the line would usually have 64 to 80 guns mounted, thus making it less gunned than a second rate ship (90 to 98 guns) and first rates with 100 guns and more (so far only available as resin models by Warlord Games.), both usually have an additional gun deck, sometimes even two in case of the first rates.

Black Seas – Frigates and Brigs Flotilla

After expanding Bolt Action into the naval combat with Cruel Seas, Black Powder benefits from a similar treatment and is expanded into the Age of Sails with the new Black Seas ruleset. Warlord Games introduced three new plastic sprues with ships in 1/700th scale of which we're going to cover the Frigates and Brigs today.

These sprues are part of the Master & Commander starter set as well, but are available as a Flotilla for 20 GBP and cover two Frigates and four Brigs.

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave – The Grymwatch

The first of the warband supplements for Beastgrave, the third season of Warhammer Underworlds is a Flesh-Eater Court warband, the Grymwatch.

The Grymwatch is an undead warband supplement for Warhammer Underworlds and costs 25.00 EUR. So these got a small price increase from the former 22.50 RRP price tag. There are 6 ghouls and a bat swarm in this warband, cross across two grey-green sprues, along with a card deck and assembly instructions. The former warbands were available as easy-to-build kits without the Underworlds content, the Grymwatch isn't offered in that way (yet).

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave Primal Lair

In Nightvault Games Workshop introduced for the first time terrain accessories with the Arcane Hazards for the Underworlds series, and in Beastgrave we see that idea continued with the Primal Lair.

The Primal Lair is a set of six terrain pieces, to cover hexes on your Underworlds gameboard or to use on a regular tabletop wargame battlefield. It is kept in the design of stalagmites in hex-shape, along with bones and multiple things we've seen in the caverns.

Warhammer Underworlds: Beastgrave

The Warhammer Underworlds series starts into its third season with Beastgrave.

After the initial Shadespire and second edition Nightvault, the conflict moves into the bestial realm of Ghur, and gets lost in the Beastgrave. A huge mountain, laced with caverns and tunnels, which are filled with treasure and secrets, luring the warbands into its depth. As usual for the starter set it contains two warbands, the current rules, dice, cards and two hex field boards. The new Beastgrave boxed set got a new price tag and costs 60 EUR instead of the 50 EUR the other two sets cost.

Cruel Seas M-Class Minesweeper

After the decision fell towards the Flower Class Corvette as the large ship of the Royal Navy fleet, I was looking for a fitting counterpart for the German Kriegsmarine. My choice went towards the German M-Class Minesweeper.

Crues Seas - M-Class Minesweeper

The Minesweeper was in competition with the Marinefährprahm (basically a landing ship) and the Vorpostenboot. The landing ship would be something to keep in mind, if I wanted to extend the Operation Sealion / Gigant towards Cruel Seas. The Vorpostenboot is an armed civil ship, similar to the armed trawler of the British and looked a bit to improvised to counter the proud British Corvette. So the decision was clear, it must be the Minesweeper, Minensuchboot M1940.

Cruel Seas British Flower Class Corvette

In extension to the fleets of the Strike Fast! Strike Hard! starter kit I chose a large vessel for both sides. For the British that was the British Flower Class Corvette.

Crues Seas - Flower Class Corvette Crues Seas - Flower Class Corvette Crues Seas - Flower Class Corvette

Among the large British ships would have been a Landing Craft Gun or the armed trawler. The landing craft looked more like something for the pacific and the armed trawler was a bit too close to the merchant tanker, and this is a Corvette, a Corvette! So the choice was pretty clear.

Aeronautica Imperialis – Imperial and Ork Ground Assets

The release of Aeronautica Imperialis was much broader, compared to other product lines introduced by Games Workshop. Among the individual kits is one for terrain, the Imperial and Ork Ground Assets.

The flat box costs 32,50 EUR and covers a single large plastic sprue, along with a simple assembly instruction. Unlike other terrain sets, this doesn't come with a Warscroll for use. Those are covered in the Rynn's campaign supplement.

Cruel Seas Merchant Tanker

The Merchant Tanker is one of the firsts vessels that were available for Cruel Seas and has a cardboard stand in included with the Strike Fast! Strike Hard! starter kit.

Crues Seas - Merchant Tanker Crues Seas - Merchant Tanker Crues Seas - Merchant Tanker

As a "neutral" ship that could be found in service of every nation this kit bears the potential to be part of most scenarios, either as a mission objective to defend / attack or for example to claim its cargo. Merchant tankers had the objective to ferry supplies such as food, fuel, steel, clothing or munitions and weaponry.
