Finally got tired of waiting for WI to publish my optional rules for Cruel Seas. Put them on Wargame Vault here:

Their minimum fixed price is 50 cents so that is how much they are. I will donate my proceeds to the local food back where the forward money goes.
Feedback on the rules welcome.
Can read a little about them and about Warlords Storm in a Teacup scenario that my Dad and brother played here:

Looks like a grand scenario! Lots of fun there. I will check Wargames Vault for the Crueler Seas and get a copy!

Joe Legan11 Aug 2019 3:11 p.m. PST

You get a free copy! You helped me with the guns that is worth at least 50 cents. Let me see if I still have your email.

That's fine! I can pop for the 50 cents going to the food bank. A most worthy cause in my opinion. BTW, I need to send you a copy of "Old Salts" our rules set which your efforts influenced.

It would be well worth mentioning that you are donating the proceeds to charity in the blurb on WV

and we have another buyer, Looks good Joe

Joe Legan12 Aug 2019 4:06 p.m. PST

Thanks all; sales are already brisk. Please leave me feedback or ask questions.
David, I have thought about that with all my products and am torn. I don't really want to cry out, " hey buy this stuff because the proceeds go to charity." Part of me wants it to stand on its own and part of me also wants to remain humble as to what I do. I don't mind mentioning here and on my blog because that is more personal. Though you will never see me mention it again for this product. I only mention it once for each product. The counter argument would be if I mention it in the blurb it might generate more sales which makes it go to a good cause. Hence I am torn.


PS Fitz-- Got your e-mail Will check it out this weekend.

Cool fight, Joe, and the dock looks great.


Joe Legan13 Aug 2019 3:54 a.m. PST

Thanks. Yes the dock turned out really well. His stuff is good for the price and as you know getting to play with my dad was really special
It is not an air war involving Cuba but I do what I can!

You can always do Cuba too.

A great excuse to bring out the Skyrays, and/or Crusaders, along with lots of other interesting aircraft.

Can the communists launch an attack on the US mainland, or will the USA prevail?

American certainly has the power edge, but Castro only need get lucky once, with nuke capable bombers and missiles.

Joe Legan14 Aug 2019 9:05 a.m. PST

True. But I think I already have myself spread pretty thin game wise. Just bought the crusades book for saga. Will leave the modern air stuff to jack

Just Jack Supporting Member of TMP14 Aug 2019 1:48 p.m. PST

I'll do what I can! For this coming weekend, I'm trying to decide on what to play:
1. WWII air combat in the Pacific (Coral Sea and Midway).
2. Modern air combat for the Cubans over South Leon.
3. Modern company-level ground combat for the Cubans in South Leon.
4. WWII ground combat for KG Klink in Greece.

Whaddaya say, Joe? You can only pick one ;)


Joe Legan15 Aug 2019 2:46 a.m. PST

I vote #1 but honestly play what you want

Just Jack Supporting Member of TMP15 Aug 2019 5:30 a.m. PST


I like your choice, was already leaning that way, which is why it was listed first. I've got a busy weekend coming up (my girl has started back up in volleyball and both boys in baseball), so air gaming wins in terms of quick setup and takedown, and the games and batreps are (relatively) quick to play and write up.

What about you, going to be able to get in any gaming. I'd like to see some more of your ‘Nam Marines, or Iraq Marines, or Africa FFL ;)
