Spartan Games – Uncharted Seas

Spartan Games have released a game called Uncharted Seas. Their website (linked above) provides details of the rules and the models. It is fantasy naval wargaming almost of a galley nature. As in all things fantasy, the actual industrialisation of everything is kind of a mix.

I loved Games Workshop’s Man ‘o’ War – great rules and really fun little vessels and I kind of regret not keeping my copy of all that stuff before I went off overseas. However, looking at the Uncharted Seas from Spartan Games, I may have found something that almost lets me consider fantasy naval wargames again (as compared to say, Victorian Science Fiction naval games which is a whole different genre).

Uncharted Seas is played at a nominal scale of 1/600th (about 2mm size).

There is a gallery showing some nice pictures of this sort of stuff in between pictures of other wargame figures on the Spartan Games Gallery Page.

Now, if I can just find someone who has played them and can give me a good unbiased overview of them, I may be tempted to part with some “readies” next pay day.

    It's a simple, clean, yet fun naval game. The combat is reminiscent of Full Thrust or A&A: War at Sea. What I like about the game is that you can buy a very nice looking starter fleet for around $30-$50, depending on the faction you choose. The rulebook will run you another $33 or so. The Spartan Games forums are active and it's obvious the creators are passionate about supporting their product.

    All in all, if you like naval games, this one's a good investment! If you can find another player with a different fleet, you can be playing for under $100, including the rules.
