  1. Well, tbh, I am very undwhelmed. A 2 player box as the gread Force Friday reveal is meh at best.
  2. Sorry to say you're wrong. I love tabletop miniature wargaming (as a grognard could explain to you a real wargame uses cardboard chits). I love to shove around beautfiul figurines on beatiful terrain. FFG could sell me a ton of prepaints. If they do not I will comission them to a trusted painter.
  3. I played a fair share of Warmachine/Hordes back in the day which is a traditional miniature tabletop game but skewed heavily towards competitive play. Huge meta changes after new releases were common due to the combo'y nature of the game. Spamming units after release was also common - despite the work and money needed to put in. You wouldn't stand a chance in a tournament if you didn't come prepared for the newest killer combo. The double list format mitigated the list chicken problem a bit but meant even more effor to put into your army. Still the competetive players always were ready with the newest hotness.
  4. Aye, thanks for the info!
  5. Greetings aces I cannot seem to find an info or registration page for the UK Nationals in Liverpool. How many seats are there? Are tickets still available? I might consider a quick jump over the channel for this! Cheers
  6. That's not true for everyone. I truly enjoy miniature tabletop games. I like big battles with hundreds of nicely painted figure. I adore beautiful terrain on the table. I don't mind slugging it out on the battlefield for several hours. I just don't like sitting down for hours and hours and try to make stuff pretty. I'd rather spend that time actually playing the game. That's why I comission a lot of painting. And there must be others like me otherwise there wouldn't be as many studios that do comissions.
  7. I don't like painting minis - I never really did. But I like to play with pretty miniatures at the same time. I painted a fair share of minis in my past gaming history but I am done with it. Nowadays time is much more valuable for me than money. So I actually pay people to paint my minis. Pre-painted would be an insta-buy argument for me. There has been fairly well done pre-paints in the past like AT-43 and Battlefield Modern Combat. Also the Star Wars franchise is so very well set with their aesthetics that the studio paintjobs probably will be very popular. Blue Stormtroopers don't roll. I wish FFG would do a Deluxe line - like with Dust. I'd be sure to pick up some packs that way.
  8. An epic scale game at 10-15mm would have been awesome. Huge armies clashing with vehicle and air support. Just imagine. Heroes could have still been in there and might even been more powerful as you would have seen their effect on a whole battle and not just Vader cutting down a few Rebel soldiers. The market for squad level skirmish games is saturated already. Sure the IP will pull its weight but it would have been so much more interesting for FFG to explore new terrain! (like they did with Armada)
  9. A Deluxe pre-painted line would please both crowds. I would be willing to shell out some money for that. No way I am getting back into painting full armies.
  10. Greetings aces Can we expect to have the European Championships at the UKGE again in 2018? This year was awesome and I like to do travel plans early. Cheers
  11. Our local meta is crying out loud for them. It would literally double the playerbase! Dwarves have been neglected for too long. It's about time they make their way onto the battlefield!
  12. I really liked what I saw in the Covenant video. The dials are need. The rulers are workable. The dice look great. What I did not like is the rune tokens. Flipping around cardboardtoken doesn't feel right. Also I fear they will wear out easily. Instead they should use dice for runes. Feels better in every way - haptically and mechanically.
  13. +1 for pre-painted minis! A collectors or premium series would be awesome! Also great for shops to show off the game!
  14. Thanks for the head up. Am I looking at the right sets here? - for the Concorde and Amazon class Frigates (32 guns / Rate 5) I'd take the "PE4 Frigate" set - for the Elizabeth and Temeraire class Ship-of-the-line (74 guns / Rate 3) I'd take the "PE2 74/80 gun Vessel" Do you concurr with that? Cheers Kirin
  15. @Funk Fu - that rigging looks fantastic! May I ask how you did the ratlines? Kirin out
