Unfurl the Sails!
Ares Games is the publisher of the “WW1 Wings of Glory” and „WW2 Wings of Glory“ aerial combat games, created by Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia.
After successfully publishing these two games in 2012, we’re now ready to launch our next game and miniature line, Sails of Glory, and we’ve decided to fund this new project using Kickstarter.
The mechanics of Sails of Glory are inspired by the excellent „maneuver deck“ system used in Wings of Glory. For a long time, we’ve been discussing with the authors about the possibilities of the system, and how to develop it beyond its use in Wings. Then, we realized how well it could be adapted to naval wargaming, and the idea of Sails of Glory was born. We also realized that assembled and painted ship models to use in a miniature game do not exist on the market – and we wondered how much more accessible naval gaming would become if we were able to create beautiful small ships, ready to play out of the box.
The Sails of Glory Starter Set
We designed the Sails of Glory Starter Set as an all-in-one starting point to begin playing. Four fully painted and assembled ships are included:
- Le Courageuse 1778 Concorde class French frigate;
- Le Genereux 1785 Temeraire class French ship-of-the-line;
- HMS Terpsichore 1785 Amazon class British frigate;
- HMS Defence 1763 Bellona class British ship-of-the line.
Each of these ship is complemented by a special gaming base, a maneuver deck, and a ship log to keep track of damage, combat capabilities, and actions.
The full-color rulebook will give you simple Basic rules, to begin playing minutes after opening the box. Also included are Standard, Advanced, Optional Rules, for those players who desire a more realistic (but still fast-paced) naval game.
An extensive set of counters and tokens are provided, die-cut on thick cardboard and full color, to assign and keep track of damages, to handle the crew actions, to record the ship status on the ship log. Also included in our basic set will be some basic terrain elements (rocks, small islands) to make your battlefield more interesting.
The medium suggested retail price of the Starter Set after the Kickstarter will be $ 90.
The game box feature amazing art by Cornish artist Donald MacLeod.
