Default Dread Fleet: Advance Order Now Up

As the title goes, advance orders are up for the 'secret' new release that everyone has been talking about.

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...d=prod1350015a


Looks pretty cool i have to say

70, so it's a tad bit more expensive than Space Hulk and from what I can see a ship for every race including what I think is a chaos dwarf ship (on second thoughts no Lizardman ship tho...). There's also a little novella as well like they did with Space Hulk written by Phil Kelly.

Hmm.. not sure about the price tag, think its a little expensive, should be more like 60. But it looks interesting... Think i'd have to play it, or at least read the rules before deciding if its worth buying though....

Hmmmm.... looks interesting... If it makes for a good game then its worth the price otherwise its hard to justify that kind of coin.

.... wow... so not only you have to fish out a good chunk of coin then you need to assemble, and paint all the ships... hmmm the detail is not too bad from what I can see and there are a lot of ships which is nice.

You could certainly make a good Gaming table with all the pieces from the set. Just have some sort of sunken ship type table.

Ummm the term 'do one' comes to mind. A stand alone game for 70 notes, no thanks. Had it been an updated classic maybe, but a game that will have no support after release, you can buy any stand alone board game for half the price.

But hey thats just my 2 pence

It looks interesting and the Ships are nice models, but it is very expensive for a one off game. It reminds me alot of Man O War. I would rather spend my money on a chunk of 40k or WFB than buy this.

Also once released, Dread Fleet will not be supported. That's a big negative point for me.

How do you know its going to have no support after release? GW can easily come out with new ships and cards...

I think your probably right but you still never know.

This is why I said "I think your probably right but you still never know."
