Some really annoying bits to the gameplay.
Rolling d20 for each villain to see what they are going to do each activation can get tedious, especially when there can 20+ of them in play at times.
And sometimes you have roll a d20 for every mini on the table at the end of the round to see if they take a wound or some other effect.
Basically… typical GW dice fest.
Isn’t just this just really War of the Ring lite?
And $300 seems a lot of money.
Happy is relative.
If I mentioned ‘convicts’, ‘descended’ and ‘australians’ in the same sentence it would be racist.
And I dare not comment on Becca Scott with her ‘How to play Nightvault’ video….
All things are relative.
I paid the same for Kill Team as I did Roger Trader.
Prices for property in London are ridiculous compared to where I live.
Beer prices in Norway are ridiculous.
What my parents paid for their first house is less than I spend on board games in a year.
$210 NZ converts to more than I paid for Kill Team, but without knowing the ‘cost of living’ or average salary in New Zealand it’s difficult to judge if you were overcharged or not.
In the end it boils down what you perceive as value for money. I don’t feel ripped off buying Rogue Trader, but I do feel I got a bargain with Kill Team for the terrain and other bits and pieces.
I can just see the warning appearing on boxes of plastic….
“Warning: Painting your miniatures may lead to neck ache and tinnitus!”
Tinnitus is not fun and varies person to person. I had the loud heartbeat variant for a bit, but luckily it was due to inflamed ear and drops cured it in a week (after suffering for longer period of course).
Sometimes I word things in a way that may offend. I edit minutes later. Sometimes I would delete, but that option is not available.
I’m just pointing out that value is subjective.
That’s not a new trick… they’ve known for a while.
And yes… the Rogue Trader box contains less… but the value of a product is what you get out of it.
I bought Kill Team for the terrain mainly. Already had Skitarii from Forge Bane and wasn’t that bothered about Genestealers. Obviously I wanted the rules and other bits to play the game.
Rogue Trader I wanted for the Trader miniatures, Nurgle less so, but the new maps and close quarter rules are good. The Codex to use Rogue Traders in 40k is useful and the ‘heroes’ are some damned powerful figures.
Take a look at the price of most hero figures for 40K and that makes Rogue Trader look better value.
Good news… purchase of Rogue Trader is not required… it’s a choice!
