Runewars is out (Fantasy Flight Miniature Battle Game)

Any interest? Anyone bought it?
I played a bunch of X-Wing, and I find the concepts they are presenting here interesting....

Mate of mine bought it? Going to try it out before deciding. Definitely interested though.


Oh, and on a side note, somewhere in the next few weeks I will be playing x-wing against the reigning world champion. Wish me luck !

Wow, good luck! May the force be with you! :biggriin:

As for Runewars, well it doesn't greatly interest me game-wise but I do like the general and cavalry models. If I see a review I'll link it for you.

It looks interesting.  FFG usually handles stuff pretty well.

May the Force be with you, Soth.  Unless you play as Empire or Scum, then whatever. :wink:
Me and Wissenlander had babies!

not together.

finding photographic evidense that Wiss smiles is going to be hard...

Let me know.

What is the current meta? A year ago it was twin IG88s, or 3 / 4 b-wings, or a few other combos. Turrets were king (I hate that - takes the fun out of it IMO). What list you thinking?

I just bought myself a protectorate starfighter.

Biggs certainly gets a lot of action, doesn't he.
