Great War at Sea: Dreadnoughts
In 1906, a new kind of battleship slid into the water
at Portsmouth Naval Dockyard. Much larger than previous
types, HMS Dreadnought carried more and bigger guns. For
a generation, ships like her ruled the world's seas.
Dreadnoughts features die-cut, mounted counters: 70 "long"
ship counters plus 20 standard half-inch "square"
Articles, scenarios and counters are provided for the
Spanish Armada of the World War One era (including its
projected but never built second- and third-generation
dreadnoughts), the Ottoman Turkish navy, Austro-Hungarian
building projects and the saga of South America's dreadnought
programs and the many attempts by other nations to purchase
There are also new "advanced" tactical rules
by Karl Laskas, giving players the option to take a more
detailed approach to combat.
New counters include the Brazilian battleship Rio de
Janeiro, already appearing under three different flags
in the series, under the colors of her other suitors.
The Russians get their full set of Nakhimov class cruisers,
the Amurski-class cruisers seized by the Germans, and
the Prut, a captured Turkish cruiser.
Austria-Hungary receives the 1916 type battleship (armed
with 16.1-inch guns), the ancient coast defense ship Erzherzog
Rudolf, the remainder of the 1914 cruiser class, plus
a counter for her projected aircraft carrier. In Turkish
colors are the various British and German battleships
and cruisers that almost joined the Ottoman service, including
the armored cruiser Blücher (a "sure thing"
that fell through in 1910). There are even counters for
the Austro-Hungarian PKZ-2 armored helicopter!
And for all these ships, new scenarios! Over two dozen
of them, studying just what these navies planned to do
with their increased strength.
For true fans of the series, this supplement will quickly
become a must-have. At just $29.99, it's not to be missed.
