Yes and no. Yes, because of the subject matter and the ships. But it's very pricey. The ships are unassembled and unpainted and for that price?.... Also I'd want to see that the expansions actually come out before purchasing the game.

Interesting, I wonder about computerizing it.

It was called Steam and Iron, and it was great with a surprisingly good AI.

That looks interesting, much more so than Avalon Hills Jutland.

Nice, I commented on the site @wodin, that it looked interesting and it was up my alley, I do a lot of model painting back in my teenage day while in the wheelchair, now that im regressing back into it again due to the cancer in the brain, I most likely end up getting back into the modeling again. but the computer game looks cool @RangerJoe and @Blond_Knight.

Quality of components is superb.

As for the price, well I'm not certain what other games you are comparing it to but I think it's a decent price considering what you get and compared to other wargame prices.

Make sure you get the campaign expansion and Steam and Iron is a WW1 naval warfare Wargamers wet dream! It still is great.

warspite1

I'm not comparing to any other games as I don't know of anything similar to compare it too.

I was simply giving my thoughts on the cost, and the fact that having paid that, one has still to paint and assemble the ships. The ships look marvellous on the website, but I know with my lack of model making skills, my versions would look like nothing so professional.

One also has to hope the project is a success and the expansion ships become available.

But if you think the price is reasonable and works for you then that is your opinion and is absolutely fine.

What? You will forgo the chance to paint HMS Warspite in a rainbow pattern?

Looks like a fun game, though I'm not into miniatures anymore. As far as the price, I saw a comment saying it was ~$78.00 for the full game and ~$28.00 for each expansion. Sounds like a good price to me. Looks like a lot of workmanship went into designing the game pieces and it's not much more expensive than a computer game where all you get is a CD, if even that. Looks like a bargain.

Yeah the price not bad I mean for Warhammer packs which was what I bought and painted back in the 90's for a Campaign starter set your talking $100-125. and each expansion $15-25 depending what army you getting, not including paints. So @warspite, its a deal or about the going price it your looking at the expansions.

@Warspite it just means the cost of the game is about the going rate compare to other games out there, if @wodin convinces you to try it out.

If and when it becomes available I would buy HMS Warspite (despite the cost) just to see for myself the quality of the ship, how easy it is to assemble etc.

I'd make any decision on the game based on that. Worst case I have a mini Warspite to lovingly caress, touch and cuddle up to. Best case I'd buy the game as and when funds allow.
