PostSubject: Man O War Alternative Miniatures?????   Sat 28 Jul 2012 - 7:37

Wasn't sure if this is the right section but considering that Man o war is or was based on the Warhammer Fantasy realm it will do.

Does anyone know of any manufacture who would or does make fantasy ships that could be used for Man O War?
[Besides Spartan games : Uncharted seas]

I have all of the Man O war rule books but finding it dam hard to get the tokens and the cards... again any takers on this? and please Ebay , and a few other sites I won't name are demanding prices that are Ridiculous for the official Man O war range so that is why I am here.

I want to make up an Orc, Dwarf and Empire fleets, maybe Dark Elf if possible...

So any one got some ideas?

Cheers
GreyWolf

The sea of claws is a probably a better place to ask this question (it's the most active Man O'War community that I know of).
http://games.dir.groups.yahoo.com/group/theseaofclaws/?v=1&t=directory&ch=web&pub=groups&sec=dir&slk=10

But off the top of my head:
Demonworld games had some ship miniatures for their Empires Game. The 15mm ones are being re-released by Ral Partha Europe, so you might be able to find them on their site. Scale-wise, these tended to be a bit on the small side.

Also Green Forest Trading Company used to make dedicated proxies for Man O'War (mostly for fleets that were never officially released by Gamesworkshop ... I have his Lizardman fleet). Last I heard he was out of the business, but his website says he's still taking orders.

Hope that helps,

Thx DarkWingDuck I got my Authorization this morning from that Yahoo group.

I have posted a message asking for help.

I am only looking for around 10 ships for Empire, Chaos, Pirate, Orcs and Dwarfs.

Orc's and Empire first of the bat followed by Chaos.

I'll try and do some more research but its hard trying to find a company that is still in business. As the List the Sea claws give is really outdated.

has anyone used Uncharted sea minis to play MoW?

Cheers
