Has anyone tried using the ship pieces from the game Viktory II?



They seem to fit pretty nicely in size, and on the pictures I have seen several of the right colors.

I don't own Viktory II and don't know anyone who does, so I can't check if it has all the right colours. It supports up to 8 players, so perhaps there are enough pieces.

Ok, a bit more research, and I found the colors:

Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, Black, White, Orange, and Grey

So one would have to paint the orange or white ones purple.

You can order a set of VIKTORY II Military Units (Blue, Red, Green, Yellow, Black, White, Orange, and Grey) for $30, which includes 192 infantry, 64 artillery, 64 cavalry, 64 frigates; 384 military pieces total.


For $30 plus shipping one would get 8 frigates and a bunch of other units in each of the 8 colors. Fair deal, if the other colors are close to the ones from NiE.(?)

EDIT: The painting may not be needed, as Prussia is never gonna build ships anyway.

Yes I've used them, especially as extras for larger naval battles.

Cool. Added Viktory II to my wishlist

I just noticed that ships in tan are also missing. Again, it's probably a non-existing problem in most games.

My copy of Viktory II came with purple ships. You might be able to get someone to sell you a used copy of Viktory II with the purple ships if you advertise for it. Matching the color, which is "Purple Pearl" as far as I can tell, on the plastic is fairly difficult to get them to closely resemble the purple land units of Prussia in NiE.

Realise this is a dormant thread, but wondering if anyone can confirm the dimensions of the frigates? Thanks!

They are smaller that Ships of the Line but larger than longboats?whistle

Sorry. The keel (above the table line) is 3 cm. The bowsprit sticks out about 8 mm more.
