The National Museum of the Royal Navy sets sail with Warlord Games

The National Museum of the Royal Navy has secured a deal with Warlord Games for a scale model of HMS Victory for its Black Seas range.

HMS Victory, Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805, is located in Portsmouth’s historic dockyard. It is the world’s oldest naval ship still in commission with over 244 years of service.

It is currently undergoing a £35m conservation and restoration decade-long project which will ensure the ship is protected for the next half century as the shell is removed and replaced with new oak. Repairs will be made to the ship’s structural framework and the plan is for her to be fully re-rigged.

Warlord Games – which combines historical accuracy with dynamic models enabling rules-based wargames to be enacted – joins licensees including Airfix, Revell, The Isle of Wight Distillery and the Westminster Collection.

“We are excited to be working with Warlord Games on this fine example of HMS Victory,” commented Emma Allen, head of commercial services at the NMRN. “Licences such as these are an important part of our fundraising and development work to preserve our heritage for future generations.”

Paul Sawyer, head of product development and design at Warlord Games, continued: “As a company built on the foundations of thousands of years of military history we are delighted to be able to contribute to the maintenance of one of this country’s most treasured historical vessels.

“HMS Victory is a key part of our Black Seas game range and we are proud to be an official licensee and to be able to use the HMS Victory Logo on our packaging for this great ship.”
