Don't get me wrong i haven't played Dreadfleet it could be a great game but how far can you take a game like that, they won't release entire fleets for each race. Where as you can take one Char to the end of the world and back with a game like quest or a gang in Necromunda.

Again it may be a great game but 70 for a game is a bit on the pricey side.

Also Vash was you that was saying you were from Eastbourne?

This... If it was Quest it would have been a no brainer for buying for me.

This game however.... going to be making a trip to my local store to check it before even considering it.

Looks like they're testing the water after the success of spartan games.

If it sells well hopefully they'll support it.

Captain Jezlad loves pirates aye! Talking of which... where the fuck is my sword?

Well GW's added another blog post which contains much more info, and a longer trailer video about the game....

Games Workshop Dreadfleet Blog.

Have to say I'm still not sure about this and not sure if its worth buying or not... gonna have to play some games to decide.

The models are quite nice, and the fun of assembling them would make up for a price hike over an off the shelf board game. However as an Aussie fan, $190 is just ludicrous. Thats ~114 pounds. So no complaining about price from the UK .

my thoughts exactly Jezlad, unfortunately i do not think that this game will do well since others have mentioned its not a fantasy "Space hulk" game that people know about.

i bet that this wont do well at all. stores will likely be begging to sell the games by xmas (if its even released by then). but unlike space hulk i dont think that there will be major spikes on ebay for it, maybe "used" items for people who want to get something for the $115 they paid for it. i predict that ebay sales wont go about $65 for it (on average).

At $190 Australian Dollars i'll pass.

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

I liked everything about it, placed my pre-order like 2 minutes ago. I don't even play fantasy but this thing just calls to me. I will split the price with my brother :D

Looks like a cool game but the aus pricing as usual kills it. You could put a magnificent fleet on the table for dystopian wars with that amount of cash. Don't worry, i don't play that either, just comparing. I like the models and i hope it does well as an expansion to warhammer.

Hey jezzlad, is this big heavy swordy thing yours? Hmmm looks expensive.........(Scarpers)
