    To be honest…I have not played a great deal of all the stuff I have…be it video games, board games, card games, miniature games or roleplaying games…or read all the books I own for that matter…for varius different reasons….and I have still hope for my time after retirement to catch up….yeah I know…but one has to have hope ;-)…and sometimes…when the addict part is not so strong…I do wonder if I really need this or that game…silly thought I know….sometimes one gets week ๐Ÿ˜›

    But with RPGยดs I never do that…I accepted a looong time ago that as an adult I do not have the time like I had as a teenager where we played entire weekends non-stop…nowadays its more like an evening every other month…or less…so I have no problem if I actually do not play those with my friends….for me if the setting, art and writing draw me to it…it is enough to just read the stuff….more like a good book…my imagination goes on endless adventures while reading…and I do enjoy that very much…even if not playing the game ever.

    Oh…and thx for the tip btw…looks really interesting indeed!

    I do not expect it to be that complex..so comparing it to a GM role in an RPG might be a little too much. From the look of it its seams more of a tactical choice how to use the resources to help oneself and hinder the others…and having an eye on what the next person can do to you with the results of what you have done ect. Only if I understood it right that is.

    I find the idea of alternating the player for the bad guys interesting….at least on paper it reads like a fun feature ๐Ÿ™‚

    @UH Is the original game as good as they claim…so if one does not own that…would this be worth it?

    Donยดt think that there will ever be “the perfect game”. For everyone “perfect” is something very different. What one finds to be perfect another one does not like at all..be it Rules,Fluff,Art ect.

    So…what does it take to be a huge hit? I think you have to be in the sweet spot that is something that is close enough for a large audience…so they are willing to overlook ist “flaws”. And even that could be influenced by the current market. A game that is clearly not perfect…but has something that was not available for a long time…or the first time ever…peolpe are a lot more tollerent to the flaws (say like Frostgrave). The next release needs to be much better to be an equal hit because tollerence is much lower…and so on.

    Not sure I used the right words to describe it…but did my best…hope you understand what I tried to say ๐Ÿ™‚

    @universal head Yup…the said bargain was compared to their normal (insane) pricing for single models (new Kharn model 35$ – thats a starter box price for a lot of other games! For a Space Marine sized plasik model!!!). The 51 Models in Silver Tower…with some of them being really nice…for 150$…and an actual game on top…letยดs call it a GW-bargain ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Besides GW being in their own world for many years…I do find it interesting that they slowly seam to change back to “the old days” with a bit of community interaction…starter bundles with saves to single buys…board games…reviving old favorites like Blood Bowl,Necromundo ect…redo White Dwarf the way it was back in the old days…interesting times!

    Still not a fan of their rules…for some itterations now….less so of the release policy with the codices…and the pricing of them. So I spent my money on lots of other stuff for quite some time now. But I do like the fluff a lot…and the artwork…and the fact that they brought me into the hobby will make them for ever Special.

    @The8thPagan Skirmish is not Mass Combat…but better than nothing ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @CKLai Well…looking at the list of products they loose…besides Android and Terrinoth…they pretty much are dependent on that one (ficle?)license…and loose a good amount of sales volume. Without Asmodee in their corner it would be a pretty hefty blow. But egg or henn…it will be intresting to see where this leads.

    I am no big fan of GW pricing…the plasic sinlge minis for 20+ are a bad joke…but the new boardgames are really a bargain when looking at the amount of minis you get for that price. And to be honest..you go for GW games for the models…not for the game/rules ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I read elsewhere that GW was not happy with the miniature games from FFG…starting with huge hit x-wing and following with imperial assault. They supposedly asked FFG to not sell them as they saw them as competition to their games and “threatend” to not renew the license. As FFG had no intention to drop those megasellers they new that the license would go and that they could do something like runwars the miniature game to expand on the succes of some gameplay parts of the other games in one of their ipยดs.

    That sounds to me like something that could have happend….especially the protectiv part of GW….and with asmodee in the back FFG could live with loosing the license and with it a significant amount of money.

    So…anyone going to “invest” in some of the games to be sold at 3 to 4 times the price next year? ๐Ÿ™‚

    And now lets hope for the next big hit from FFG….”Star Wars The Miniature Game” ^^
