I can't wait to see the Aus$ price :(

Hey I know a guy that bought it. Never played it, but he bought it.

Tables, I thought we still needed tables to play now? Oh tables as is charts
and references, oh that'd suck if there are trying to make it like War Law
form the guys that did Rolemaster. Now there was a game doomed to die. Us
rolemaster junkies with it's multitudes of tables had trouble figuring out
War Zone. I have heard nothing but scorn from epic players for the new game,
especially if their current figures are forfeit, and the 40K players have as
much disregard for the new epic40K as they do currently for epic. GW will
pump and hype it for at least three months though, then move back to 40K and
WFB and leave it alone again.

Yep, my old warries are looking damn good with their flowers and bright
colours I can tell you.
