ok i get the idear that dreadfleet isnt as good as GW would like it to be, as today i happened past an independent dealer today and they have 30 of them & selling them off at -15% RRP& i know trowbridge toyshop is doing the same & selling them for £50 insted of the £70 price tag
to expand Point 4, Space Hulk has a plethora of nostalgic gamers out there ... both previous editions are amongst GWs All Time Best Games .. Man 'o' War? less so (i'm surprised Uncharted Seas sells so well!) as it was always a clunky counter-ridden mess, rather like Dreadfleet!
5. pretty mediocre miniatures (i do like the Squid & Ghost Ship) & naff terrain (Skuuuullz!). The mat in the game? absolutely lovely tho!
6. lack of freedom; each scenario dictates which ships you use and a lack of points / balancing system limits making up your own scenarios / games
People who have bought the game seem to like it on the whole, but for a company so obsessed with being sorting the wheat from the chaff *coughspecialistgamescough*, I find it pretty damning that this half thought-out release even happened.
It's obvious that it's not just the lawyers at GW that don't have their heads on straight.
