This is a great product. I first saw it on the high street but the price put me off. Since your reading this you can see what a great price shop4world is selling at. That made up my mind and I placed my order along with 1 each of the ships in the core set. Its well worth doing this as the game advises that 2 players should combine 2 core sets. However if you only need one set of rules, dice and manover tool then this site really helps you get what you need while saving money.
The box art is beautiful, the components are as well made as i could wish for with no mould lines and the paint scheme is well executed. The fighter squadrons are supplied unpainted but anyone with decent painting skills could easily paint them.
The rules booklets are clearly written and easy to understand with good example diagrams.to help explain the concepts.
This game is a joy to play and the ships make great collectables. It does a great job of showing how star wars capital ships move with the aid of the manouver tool and you really need to think several moves ahead. The card and token system helps to keep play flowing and the card artwork is a good to look at as the box art.
Im looking forward to many more hours of pleasure with a truly great game in my favorite universe.
