Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Let me start by saying that I'd like to play Battle Fleet Gothic. I like the 40k setting, and the idea of mile long space cathedrals blasting each other to rubble amuses me in a way that's probably not entirely safe for work.
Unfortunately, I can't find crap for BFG in stores, and it appears that GW has no plans to support the game now or in the foreseeable future.
So, ODaM Critical Failures, what're my options if I want to play with tiny plastic models of giant space ships, but BFG is off the table (so to speak)? What are your recommendations? Who's going to hit right in the Othello spot ( 'A Minute to Learn...A Lifetime to Master')? Who's got the coolest space ships? Who's got good game balance and well written rules? What can I get into without reverting to a spam and ramen diet?
Alternatively, tell me who to avoid. Who's got terrible models? Who's got poorly written, confusing rules?
