Universal Head

The real test is what the re-releases of old games like Blood Bowl and Necromunda are like. I have a feeling that Dreadfleet will be the last time we’ll see a boxed game that’s got that much cool stuff inside.

The tabletop games seem a bloody mess – W40K is an old-fashioned IGO/UGO mess with constantly changing rules, and Age of Sigmar is horribly oversimplified and to me, their new Flash Gordon-looking concept of fantasy is an abomination. I suspect the rules department at GW is the smallest, least popular room in the building. I never liked the long-winded ‘roll to hit, roll to wound, roll to save’ system that GW just can’t seem to let go of.

Then again I could count on one hand the number of times I’ve played both! I always preferred the old boardgames and skirmish games.
