I'm a fan of the original and that still makes my tabletop once every blue moon...every time I re-read Double Eagle I must play. This new version has been re-done so that movement is done by way of hexes on a board. From the quick glimpses you get in the video trailer, where two actors representing gender equality pretend to play the game but really look like they've never played a tabletop game in their life, it seems that the aircraft are represented with different stats etc too.

Supposedly, just like the new AT, they will be fully supporting the game for years to come and will be making available a number of factions all done in plastic models...and from what I hear about those models from the demo boxes that have been released, they are perfectly scaled with the AT models.

The big draw-card for me here is the excellently detailed plastic models, of course...man I love those Imperial Thunderbolts.

Anyway, I'll be throwing down for this...from what I understand it goes on pre-order on 31st August and is released on 7th September and is 55GBP pounds in the UK, which I think equates to $150 GW Special Inflation AUD $$$$

If the rules are no good, I'll happily replace all my resins and metals with the new plastics and keep playing the original...

Not every gamer is a knuckle dragging mouth breather like you mate. Thank god. People like you with attitudes like these are a cancer on the hobby.

Am I the only one seeing Crimson Skies? Would be great for that to be a thing again. I don't have any GW games at the moment, but this could be fun.

This does share some feels with Crimson Skies, for sure. Crimson Skies has some very cool looking aircraft and is set in a very unique genre, a great IP, which I hope to see make a comeback at some stage in the future. You can still buy the Wizkids minis in various places on the internet, and Ironwind Metals sell metal casts of many of the aircraft.

He's not wrong though. We aim to be an inclusive board here. There's a reason you were banned.

Sure, and while you posted it, you made a completely unwarranted swipe at people who do not meet -your- criteria for being wargamers, which is gate keeping of the absolute worst sort.

Get used to getting called out for #### like this.
