maybe i should read a bit more about its rules then.
i saw it a while ago, and interesst was maily fuelled by those plastik multipart warriors. the first impression was that it goes the mordheimroad, which is a good thing.
do you know more about the mechanics and the feel when played?

santa came early this year..

i read the rules and pondered about the spells, not yet done with the details (items, treasure-tables ect).
the first thing that sprang to me and i realy like about it is... the unusual size of the book.
being a bit smaller than regular din A4, paired with that its is just around 1,5cm thick, it lies very nice in the hand.

as i like games that are centered around a narative way to fight, i'm eager to try it out asap. what i find very nice, are the "neutral" beasties you can have on the table.
i dont want to decide if i like the mechanics until i played it, they look somehow new and interesting so far. just one point that isnt to my liking sofar.. spell-slinging is quite limited quantity-wise per turn.
but maybe there are some nasty combos that circumvent this. off to read the goodies now.
