Deathwatch is a roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of the bio-engineered super-soldiers known as Space Marines. United with their battle-brothers, players will complete extraordinary missions involving some of the greatest heroes and deadliest opponents the Warhammer 40,000 universe has to offer.
I was a dealer at Gencon and was really looking forward to getting a copy, but they wouldn't sell any until 12pm, which really ticked me off.
It may sound unfair to be able to get something before the main crowds get in the door, but there's a reason dealers get to shop the convention floor an hour before the doors open: we don't normally get to otherwise thanks to working ALL DAY LONG. We don't have a lot of time to slip out for more than lunch and even then, we don't have time to wait in lines that wrap around three aisles and multiple booths in the blinkin' convention center (this is not an exaggeration in this case) for a slip of a chance of getting a book.
Very disappointing, and this along with the total lack of Gencon deals (why buy something there at full price that I have to cart back in my luggage when I can usually get the same items delivered to my door at a 20% discount from most online retailers) to the rude guy near the Civilization board who refused to answer my question about the game (twice) makes for my first truly bad experience with FFG in the three years since I started buying their games. Frankly, it smacks of GW and I'm really hoping the company isn't going that direction...
so there you go, two female space marines :) looks lik e we were all wrong and they are real :) how foolish we all look now? me? i'm going to bolter my face in shame! lol
Nope, second picture is Ashley. However, that IS Andrea G.'s back in the lower right first picture (leaning over signing a book).
she's a lot smaller without her armour on! :) ;) sorry only joking! :)
"in that second photo I can see a female space marine, sweet"
I believe that's Andrea Gausman, one of the writers!
It's great to have the sheets. Looking forward to having a copy of the book!
in that second photo I can see a female space marine, sweet :) ;)
Freakin' cocktease :
Will you guys just release the game already?
When is the US release? Any Idea on a final ship date?
Ross is such a class act (and talented RPG designer, to boot). Kudos on the fun launch. I was right behind the happy gal in front (and her hubby) - good folks. :)
I ache with anticipation. These are so tantalising.
