Dreadfleet is Games Workshop’s latest “Limited Edition” release, inspired by the success of their Space hulk reprint a few years back. Having seen the models in GW, I decided to pay out the £70 for a copy. The price is a bit high, but its another “Game in a box” that when finished, should be something which can be set up and played quickly.
From the GW web site:
Dreadfleet is a standalone boxed game for two (or more) players that includes everything you need to make war on the high seas of the Warhammer world. At your command are two fleets of ships – the Dreadfleet led by the Vampire Count Noctilus, aboard his gargantuan sea-hulk the Bloody Reaver; and the Grand Alliance commanded by the Pirate Captain Jaego Roth, who recently stole the Heldenhammer – the pride of the Imperial Fleet, and one of the largest galleons to ever sail the high seas. After his family’s death at the hands of Count Noctilus, Captain Jaego Roth is after revenge and no one will get in his way.
