  Warlord Games - Cruel Seas I guess like many of you, my attention was drawn to Warlord's pending release of a WW2 Coastal Warfare game - Cruel Seas. One of my very first ever ventures into wargaming was to buy a Navwar 1/th coastal warfare beginners set. Cruel Seas is an A4, perfect bound softback rulebook, printed on pages of high quality paper ed by Warlord Games, this is a World War Two Naval battle game which focuses upon the smaller ships of the war, fighting around the coastlines of the world.. Cruel Seas has been getting a lot of press recently, last week we presented an unboxing for the Starter Set; Strike Fast, Strike.
