    January 10, 2012


    Avast, ye scurvy lumps ‘o lard, and read on if ye know what’s good for ye! This Sunday, we’re going to be showing off Dreadfleet, the massive boxed game of fantasy sea battles from Games Workshop, all day long. You can stop in and check it out anytime 1-5pm, and our master deckhand Max will make sure you have your sea legs under you for your very first battle on the tumultuous waves of the Old World’s salty seas.

    Max has has been busy with scrubbing the decks and the miniatures, as well, to give these models the paint jobs they deserve – and they deserve the best, because they’re amazing. You’ll definitely be impressed, so come join the boarding party!

    Dreadfleet is a boxed game for two (or more) players that includes everything you need to make war on the turbulent seas of the Warhammer world. At your command are two fleets of ships – the Dreadfleet led by the Vampire Count Noctilus, aboard his gargantuan sea-hulk the Bloody Reaver; and the Grand Alliance commanded by the Pirate Captain Jaego Roth, who recently stole the Heldenhammer- the pride of the Imperial Fleet, and one of the largest galleons to ever sail the high seas.

    As your ships engage in furious battle, it’s down to you, the fleet captain, to make important split-second decisions. Do you bring all guns to bear on the closest enemy warship, or do you sail into position for a furious broadside? What happens when the warship catches fire, or worse, the powder kegs ignite? Exactly how much punishment can your warship take before it sinks without a trace? Are those Undead seagulls or flying piranha fish? And, when all else fails, do you have the courage to ram your foe, board their ship, and engage them in a duel to the death?
