Shadow-war Armageddon, Nercomunda, Kill-team and now Rogue Trader.
Another skirmish game?

Thoughts?

Pretty excited about this to be honest, although not so much for the boxed game and scenario as I am for the models and rules.

I really hope that a few of the box minis get individual releases, in particular the big ogre guy with the cleaver, and the various RT crew (particularly the doggo!)

The RT crew looks fantastic, the troopers remind me of those Classic GW Imperial Guardsmen, which makes me wonder where GW might be going with the long-rumoured new-gen Imperial Guard.

I also hope the rules dovetail nicely with the existing skirmish games. It's starting to get a bit weird with so many boxed games GW is coming out with for both the 40K and fantasy settings with some overlap, but not as much as seems logical - particularly given they seem to be drawing inspiration from the Specialist Games communities (Classic Necromunda, Warhammer Quest, Inq28) who've kept these things going for many years and have often pooled resources for very cross-compatible rulesets.

If we end up with RT crews in the Underhive or what-have-you then that's all good!

I'm a little out of touch, but it seems 'too many skirmish games' is a 'thing' of late. Which strikes me as an odd thing - but then I prefer skirmish games to shoehorning too many miniatures on to to small a table anyhoo, not that I'm actually playing any games at present! (oh, such fond pipe dreams).

Not too concerned about the form the rules take - although cross compaibility of some sort would seem a good idea/bonus.

But oh, those miniatures. Froth!
