I’m probably not going to pre-order, since I doubt I will have time to paint or play this right now anyway, but it does look really intriguing!
I’m pretty certain I will be getting it as soon as I have some time for it though. Partly as looking at the sizes of the models (best place I found that described the base sizes is here:
https://blog.untilsomebodylosesaneye.net/2020/09/so-what-is-this-all-boat.html ) I will even be able to re-use the old Man’O’War models I still have knocking around too - although I will ofc get some new Mantic ones too
That said, I never really liked Man’O’War that much though, perhaps because I was “forced” to play Orcs (as usual) & they were absolute crud in that game from what I recall (usual GW “great balancing” there!), but I did think it had some interesting stuff with the broadsides rules and tactics etc.
Has anyone here played Armada yet somehow? Or Black Seas? Anyone care to review it from a more critical strategy / tactical standpoint perhaps? I’ve listened to the CounterCharge podcast about it ofc, but it didn’t really tell me anything beyond surface level stuff.
