Default 17th of September Game release.

Hi there!

As some people may know that near the back of Septembers's White Dwarf is a picture of what looks like an undead Vampire Pirate that suggested Man'O'War.

At my local GW today there was a small card lying around (about the size of the average playing card) that had the said captain in the picture and on the other side was what appears to be a human captain who has a plotting compass and a nautical map of some kind. I am afraid I did not get to image it so I cannot show.

More intriguing however is that on the same side is the date 17/09/2011.

Does this mean that on that day that we might find out about this mystery? Evidence so far points towards a one time release with forces for an Empire fleet and an Undead Vampire fleet.

Hope this is useful.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

I believe this is actually this 'Dread Fleet' thing thats been mentioned about.... and I can believe the date, but I don't think its the release date, more of a preview date.

This was posted on my local GW stores facebook page today:

Interesting.
I loved the minis for Man O War but never really got any games.

I look forward to seeing what this turns out to be.

Any news on the 17/09/2011 secret release pre order thingy?

Games Workshop Eastbourne: Nope we having a pirate day to celebrate it, but that bout all we no for sure.
Nothing really new unfortunately, but the pirates thing adds more to the theme I suppose.

It's not Man o' War. Its some new game with no fleet building and only one ship per race, period.

My understanding is that this is going to be called 'Dread Fleet' and is a stand alone game based on the warhammer world involving ships - but not Man O' War as we remember it (would require too much longer term support so wont happen). Everything to play is in the box.
