The "I like what i got" with Firestorm Planetfall topic

Recommended Posts

Just because i got my box yesterday and to counter some of the negativity of the latest topics im here to state that im actually hapyp with what i got.

 

- Models are great as usual.

- I like the small scale of the rulebook

- The rulebooks new layout and production value is fantastic, a lot of pictures get you into the mood of playing the game (although honestly it got some spelling mistakes that even I as a non native noticed)

- I love that i actually get terrain when buying PF models

 

I've to say i waited for a long time for Planetfall to be released. Maybe thats why i wasn't so unpatient anymore when it finally hit stores. It sounds like a lot of ppl were totally hyped and then didnt get everything in the first two month that games like DW have build up for years. Remember its just the beginning, I think its to be expected that you don't have fully fledged forces available yet.

 

I'm not happy the some decitions made by SG the last years (mainly the boxed only attitude that leaves me with massive extra cost when i have to order from their UK shop). However i still love their models and their passion for the hobby!

 

Thanks for pushing the Firestorm universe to Sprtan Games. I love having access to space ships and scifi models. Really how many games do we have on the market with that offer?

I'm looking forward to PF. I'm going to have Relthoza core helix tomorrow and 7 players (+3 others from different cities) in our community already stated they are going in. ^_^  I don't mind waiting. I simply know Spartans will correct all mistakes in times to come.

One thing (aside from all the great stuff you already mentioned) is something that I saw other complain about.

The rapid update of model stats post release.

Some complained about the stats not being ready on release, but I think its great that Spartan will fix stats readily. Its better than many other companies that will leave incorrect or unbalanced stats for months.

I also love the pace of thd game. I think once there are helix's for most types out - the game will be incredibly solid!

I myself think its a great game but I know myself and I think I will revisit the game in 4-5 months when a lot more stuff is or is not available and decide then. Its neat to be in on the ground floor and such but I (perhaps unjustly) expect too much. I realize that Spartan is not an empire and therefore I will be back (its a magnificent game) when some of the kinks are worked out and when people can play the faction they want with the pieces they need.

With the pieces they want or need? Because i'd argue that none of the factions need anything beyond the core helix, it just adds more customisation/specialisation to the army, while wanting said additional helixs is another thing!  :P

I'll agree on all counts, and add a few of my own:

*I'm positively surprised by most of the differences between Invasion and Planetfall, most of the removed features (RTZ, infinite range, STAR cards, predetermined order of activation) was removed for speed of play, or was announced a long time ago (three-colour dice everywhere ).

*The models.

*The expanded tertiary attack -> CQB, and that actual hand-to-hand combat is no-where to be seen!

The only negative thing I can say about Planetfall so far is that it cuts into my Legions 2.0 hobby time....
