Succumbed to new figures, 5 of the GW Mortal Realms issue 1 packs for 50 ghosts. In my defence I bought Nighthaunt stuff last year so these are just an add on to existing.

Anybody want some stormcasts?

Let me know what you think of it. Looks like it might be just the kind of thing some of the nerds I game with would get excited about. Possibly even me...

1st read through looks promising, there's a decent looking development & resupply system. The initial recruitment setup is based around Quantity Vs Quality. What I haven't seen yet is any budget for a start up crew's kit, it looks a bit free form and you could choose to put everyone in exo armour with lmgs or shorts & vests with a pistol which seems a bit odd. I'm sure there will be clarification on LAF or FB shortly.

You don't start a crew with a budget - you select from a fixed list of types: chapter 7, page 33.
You have 12 points of ‘Khrabrost’ (mettle) to spend among your starting crew. Leaders are 3K characters, rookies 1, Hardened characters 2, veterans 3.
Each type has a specified loadout, which you are free to customise from the equipment lists.

One thing I strongly dislike... ‘Rubles’.
Rubles are Russian.
The Exclusion Zone is in Ukraine.
They use the Hryvnia.

I was just a little bit unsure about the loadout options. I know some people who would want to maximise their initial choices rather than be reasonable.

Bless me Father for I have sinned, I found a Late war British army on Ebay, All PSC boxes, brand new and bought it for £59 which is £100 less than it would have been from PSC. Most of it was in the long term plan which makes it a 7/10.
