Mantic have sold out of yet another printing of their “totally not Blood Bowl” sci-fi Football mash-up Dreadball. To honour that fact they are releasing a new version of the game with a slightly larger cost and a few more bits thrown in, or if, like me, you’ve been playing the game and scavving off a mate’s copy, you can go all in and buy way more stuff than you need.
That being said, yet again Mantic put together a really nice deal. While their Restic isn’t the nicest of materials I’ve had the joy of working with and their models do have their moments, Dreadball has been a welcome addition to the halls of the floating citadel. It’s one of those games that it’d be nice to get people playing in a league for and with me now being the second person to get a set we’ve got the potential for playing two games at the same time as well as not having to cart everything to someone else’s house if we travel for an evening’s entertainment. There’s only one problem, this is due to ship in July and will therefore potentially be around the same time as the second shipment of Deadzone. That’s a lot of new toys going to be finding their way into my house. I really don’t have that long to knuckle down and really put some effort behind shifting all the GW stuff I have lying around.
I don’t need the rulebook and the season 2 book so those can go to a good home of someone else who’s interested in starting things up but there’s a significant saving to be had if you’ve got the coin to splash out.
Looks like I’ll be living off tin of economy beans for the rest of the month though.
