New for Victory at Sea: Orion, Destroyers and Swordfish

Mongoose Publishing has some new releases out for Victory at Sea. Hunt down the enemy with Orion and remember your password with flights of Swordfish.

From the release:

The Victory at Sea range continues to grow, and we have just released four new packs to expand your fleets.

The HMS Orion makes an appearance, rounding out the complete Leander-class, and is accompanied by J, K, and N-class destroyers.

Facing against them is the stalwart 1936A destroyer of the Kriegsmarine, but the Royal Navy always keeps something up its sleeve and in this case it is the first aircraft to be added to the range – the Fairey Swordfish!

The Swordfish models (as with all our aircraft) come with their own stands but can be mounted on standard plastic hexagonal stands if you want a bit of extra altitude on your table!

First New Victory at Sea Ships Available from Mongoose Publishing

Mongoose Publishing now has their next set of Victory at Sea ships available to order from their website.

From the announcement:

The first of the new line of super-detailed 1/1800 scale Victory at Sea World War II ships are now available for mail order!

These ships include HMS Achilles and Exeter, as they appeared in 1939, and the Graf Spee.
We also have four Fairmile motor boats, the A, B, C, and D.

At the moment, we are just prepping the rest of the Leander, York and Deutschland class ships now (the Victory at Sea range will feature individual ships, not just classes, down to cruiser level), and rapidly following them are all the ships of the Bismarck, Admiral Hipper, Hood, King George V, and Tribal classes – all of these will be available before Christmas.

Many more vessels have already been designed in 3D and are just being prepped for prototyping. It is our intention to grow this line hugely over the next couple of years, including aircraft, sea port facilities and land forces (for coastal invasion scenarios), and have already started work on ships of the Regia Marina, Marine Nationale, US Navy and Imperial Japanese Navy.

Victory at Sea: Far Flung Seas – Now in Stores

Mongoose Publishing is happy to say that Victory At Sea: Far Flung Seas is now available in stores.

From the release:

The supplement for Victory at Sea: Age of Dreadnoughts, is now appearing in stores.

Written by David Manley, Far Flung Seas is a supplement for Victory at Sea: Age of Dreadnoughts WWI naval miniatures rules. Comprising additional fleet lists, Far Flung Seas rounds out the major protagonists of the Great War. In the Mediterranean, new lists cover the Italian, Austrian and French fleets. Further afield, the US Navy list in Age of Dreadnoughts is greatly expanded to cover the rest of the Fleet, in addition to those vessels that fought with the Royal Navy in the North Sea. From the vast reaches of the Pacific, the Japanese Navy joins the fray, taking part in the pursuit of von Spee’s squadron, raiding German territories around Tsingtao and Rabaul, and (for those of a hypothetical persuasion) challenging the US Navy for dominion in the Pacific in the aftermath of the Great War. Finally, a few old friends have their fleet lists expanded slightly, with a few ships that did not make it into Age of Dreadnoughts.
