Another WH40K Universe spin-off.

The board game was not too bad, but would have been a lot better if they had handled gang development in the same way that they did with Blood Bowl team management (IMHO). Somehow, I can't see this being worth the sort of price that GW games tend to be when they first come out.

Any WH40K fans thinking of getting it yet?

I had it on my wish list for ages and thought I’d hang on for some reviews - I loved the mordheim game from the same guys - it does look great but there’s a few ai wrinkles to iron out before I’m in - I’m thinking Xmas sales if it falls in that category

The reviews I've read so far have not been too encouraging, but, as you say, may be one for the sales if the price drops low enough.

I made the mistake of reading steam reviews at first - some complaining who clearly have no idea it’s based on a GW game, and at the other end GW gamers complaining it’s not Necromunda enough

The big concern is the ai who run into your fire zones and then kneel down and take cover behind nothing - if that gets fixed I’m in

Certainly worth keeping yer eye on, but as usual, after a few bug fixes and price drop  ;)

Now if you were playing Elite, we could form a ACD Wing.

I got it, same way I got Mordheim.

They were probably the GW games I played the most next to WhFB back in the day. Even more than Blood Bowl.

PC Is entertaining but not literal translation of tabletop. Uses D100  system.

Haven't found anything breaking, just some auto camera issues.

Is not a must have, but is a nice to have if you like the theme and setting.

Excellent! Glad you have a full order book. Having seen examples of your work, I'm not surprised.
