Game looks fun, never played Wildlands: even if the specific theme itself is off-putting to Squaxx dek Thargo, it's obvious why they went that way. However my real interest here would be getting hold of some Dante minis!  Viktor, Lulu and Elena, who would have thought we'd ever see the day!  Sadly I still have no sense of how they scale with the Mongoose and Warlord ranges, and as I already have minis for the Dredd and Stront characters, and there are better Slaine ones out there, I'm not sure it's enough. 

Note also that Warlord's Dredd version of their Stront skirmish game is coming soon!

I didn't think this game was out for a few more weeks, and yet Rackle just answered for the door to the delivery to a sparkly copy of this game!  (Not opened it yet, just wanted to brag - am I the first to receive their copy?)

Maybe mail orders direct from Osprey are like 2000AD from Rebellion - (theoretically) you get it a few days early.  Either that or somebody messed up in the fulfillment centre (this is the kind of mess up I can live with).

I've opened it now.  It's a gorgeous presentation.  Not sure how it's going to play, but at least the box, art, design, finishing, etc is all up to scratch.  I think this is the best produced game I know own.

Mine arrived yesterday as well. It looks good and it seems like quite a simple, fun game. I've rounded up a few people who are willing to play it next weekend, so I'll know better then.

The miniatures are very detailed for being such a small size.

Really want this but I've bought a couple of board games quite recently and am trying not to splurge on another! I've settled for begging my wife to get me it for xmas so hopefully she manages to get me one.

So uh Sheridan and CalHab old mates old chums,  if you're uhm bored with the Dante minis, I'll happily take them off your hands, save you a bit of storage space, that kind of thing.  Always willing to help a fellow squaxx!

That's the good thing about the presentation - the box has individual places for each piece.  So you don't have to worry about our storage needs, but thanks for thinking of us.

Very interested in reviews of this from board-frequenting squaxx.

Already a Dark Judges expansion planned, which also adds Solo play mechanics to the game...

Really like that there's only the four characters in that team, without a fifth crowbarred in - will really help them feel more-than-usually powerful. Here's hoping for the ABC Warriors at some point down the line!
