I've been a fan of Spartan's games for a long time,
I played DW back in its earliest days, back before CoA even had a starter box. I liked the game a lot, and loved the models even more, but the rules at the time were far from perfect and I was simply too invested in too many other games at the time. Now I've been brought back into the fold by a friend of mine wanting to play FSA. So far I've been blown away by the 2.0 version of THAT game so much that I'm really interested in seeing how 2.0 of Dwars is. I'm really interested in picking up to different nations, it's how I role, I always like to to have an extra army to let someone else who's interested in the game give them a try for the first time. I know there's the 2 player box set, and I still might get it in the end, but honestly for me, out of all the nations, the Japanese and the Americans are my least favorite looking models. Don't get me wrong they still look great, but the rest of the models of the other nations just look so fricken amazing. The Prussians look like they're straight out of WWI, the real Russian navy should ask Spartan to let them redesign their ships to look as menacing as they do in this game and if the French really had a navy and airforce looking as cool as it does in DW, the world would actually take their military serious. I could keep going with the others, but I digress.
It also seems many of the factions themselves were effected by the update and I'm wondering what, if any, of the nation's play styles have changed. For example are the Prussians still the get in close and board 'em navy? Are the Britts still all about the torpedos and likewise for the Americans and their love of rockets. If anyone is willing give a breakdown of the factions in 2.0 I'd love it.
