Looks like something really massive happened while I was asleep. And that wasn’t supposed to be a euphemism. FFG have announced a new starship miniatures game, with all manner of big guns coming, including the long-awaited (by X-Wing fans) Star Destroyer.
I feel a bit…underwhelmed. Admittedly, a lot of that comes from the fact that I really wanted a ground-based miniatures game, not another starship-based one. Looking through the announcement, it seems they’ve tried to make it to appeal directly to existing fans of X-Wing, as it seems to have a lot in common, yet different enough to call it an entirely new game.
I don’t know. $100 for the core set also seems really pretty steep: the same price as Horus Heresy, but potentially less stuff? Hm. At least I have a few more months to decide, as it’s not due out until next year. Plus I’m assuming some GenCon demos will be videoed. I’ll no doubt get it, because it’s Star Wars of course, but I’m currently feeling quite sceptical about it… We shall see, I suppose!
