The National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) has signed a license 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 Oct. 21, 1805, is in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard in the U.K. It is the world’s oldest naval ship still in commission with more than 244 years of service. HMS Victory is currently undergoing a conservation and restoration project. The decade-long project will ensure the ship is protected for the next half century as its shell is removed and replaced with new oak. Repairs will be made to the ship’s structural framework and it will be fully re-rigged. 

Warlord Games, formed in 2007, designs, manufactures and distributes historical and science fiction miniatures in plastic, metal and resin.  

“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,” says Paul Sawyer, head, product development and design, Warlord Games. “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.”

“We are excited to be working with Warlord Games on this fine example of HMS Victory,” says Emma Allen, head, commercial services, The National Museum of the Royal Navy. “Licenses such as these are an important part of our fundraising and development work to preserve our heritage for future generations.”
