The Core Set:
Alongside a softback copy of the Black Seas core rules, you'll get nine beautifully detailed plastic miniatures; three frigates and six brigs. You'll also get sails, rigging and flag sheets for all your ships and all the ship cards, wake markers, and tokens that you'll need to play. We've also included an A0 battle mat, dice and rulers!
The terrain set:
Rocks of various shapes and sizes can provide tricky obstacles to negotiate with your vessels. They are also capable of blocking line of sight - a wily Captain, should his sailing be savvy enough, can use them to stalk an enemy in relative safety before pouncing upon his prey. But be careful not to collide. They are particularly useful in Scenario 11 (Page 48 of the Black Seas Rulebook). Sinking vessels can lend a game an extra layer of authenticity. Use them to replace your own ships as they fall in battle. Wrecks are treated the same as rocks, as such a sinking vessel can provide a sudden and unexpected obstacle for either side to negotiate. Alternatively, they could be used as the objective for a scenario - to rescue a crew or a valuable cargo - The rocks included in the terrain pack also work perfectly on ANY other games table as smaller hills, rocks and mounds to add obstacles, cover, and visual excitement to any other warlord games, game.
