Cruel Seas

I preordered the Cruel Seas game at this years Crisis in Antwerp. it is a game depicting small boat action in coastal waters. The game is by Warlord Games.

“In Cruel Seas, you take on the role of a naval crew manning their fragile coastal craft as they head out day and night to take on both the sea and the enemy. Command your flotilla of small ships as they head out to attack a convoy, drop off Commandoes for a behind-the-lines mission or task them with one of the other myriads of missions this small and versatile craft would perform.

Be it the Coastal waters of England or across the Channel to France, on to the Mediterranean waters or on further to the vast Island chains of the Pacific, Cruel Seas will ensure your small ships see plenty of adrenaline-fuelled action.

Cruel Seas is a 1/300th scale tabletop miniatures game where you command flotillas of small ships in battle. Action in the game is fast-paced – with six or more ships per side, a thrilling seaborne dogfight can be fought in forty-five minutes or less.” According to Warlord Games.

Here is a video about the game mechanics :

And an interview with John Stallard about the development of the game:

As soon as I have the game at home i will do an unboxing here on wargamesgazette!
