Victory at Sea is Warlord Games' new massed fleet WWII miniatures game. Naval actions were extremely important during the war on both fronts. Soon, you'll be able to recreate those harrowing battles for yourself. They've got a couple new articles up talking about different aspects of the game. One's about Carrier Actions while the other is about the Battle of the Kamandorski Islands.
Victory at Sea is the latest addition to our catalogue, allowing players to command a squadron of warships, including an aircraft carrier or two!
As the design of aircraft advanced, navy tactics employing them evolved in tandem. With an aircraft carrier, a fleet gained the ability to strike at targets hundreds of miles away with relative impunity. Despite the advance of anti-aircraft weaponry and the presence of defending fighters, aircraft spelt the eventual demise of the battleship as the rulers of the oceans.
Victory at Sea allows you to recreate battles of all shapes and sizes on your tabletop. The engagement near the Komandorski islands is one such battle!
The Aleutian island chain, off Alaska’s western coast, were some of the remotest American possessions, and therefore most vulnerable to attack, as transporting a relief force would take considerable time and resources. On June 6th and June 7th 1942, the Japanese took control of the islands of Kiska and Attu, garrisoning them with men and aircraft.
