I have slowly been collecting this stuff, and now have a complete box set, an Orc Fleet and possibly an Elf fleet on the way.

Before I invest the time into learning the rules and painting this stuff up, does anyone else play, or is interested in playing?

Would be interested, I have the rules but no minis.
Is there any good proxies out there ?

Used to play this fanatically, would love to try it out again but I don't have rules or minis no I'm afraid.

There's always stuff on ebay, or on forums. Prices on ebay can be a bit steep for buy it now listings.

A few people seem to be making resin casts of ships, but this seems very much a cottage industry.

There's a yahoo man o' war group that can also help.

Would love to play again, time permitting.

I have a large Dwarf fleet including flyers. I think I've also got most of the other races as well, though I haven't seen them this century :roll:

Great to see some interest.

I might turn this into a bit of a hobby / gaming thread as I get into the rules & models.

Other posters more than welcome :P

Not exactly sure but roughly the same scale as the smaller Dystopian Wars ships.

This stuff is on my construction / painting list.

Happy to play some games once I have a fleet ready to play.
