The Dread Fleet

The wait is over, and to no surprise Dread Fleet is up for pre order. I really like the contents of the game, and I really hope Games Workshop will continue to support it after release. I like the fact they didn’t try to make it single fleets such as Empire VS Skaven. Instead they went the way of two allied fleets letting those who are too young or never played Man O War get a taste of all the different fleets it had to offer. I think the price is a little high $115.00 U.S. but it comes with a lot of product.
98-page Rulebook
Seascape Gaming Mat
10 Warships
10 Scenic Bases
7 Cog Auxiliaries
1 Dragon Auxiliary
1 Dirigible Auxiliary
7 Islands
5 Shipwreck Pieces
3 Sea Monsters
5 Treasure Tokens
12 Dice
1 Wind Gauge
2 Ship's Wheels
1 Navigation Rod
10 Warship Cards
55 Damage Cards
40 Fate Cards
12 Auxiliary Cards
10 Wound Cards
11 Miscellaneous Cards
The Fate cards seem like a great idea. I always find it fun to have unexpected things occur during a game. Let’s talk release day, I’m not sure why they are holding back the White Dwarf to release the same day as this set. I personally believe it is so they can drop announcements at Gamesday without the cat being let out of the bag early by the White Dwarf (Necrons anyone). Also The Black Library is releasing a Dread Fleet book (by Phil Kelly) the same day as the Game release, so it would seem all of Games Workshop is supporting this game. Want to see more?
