...I Am Weak...

Okay, I admit it. I'm weak and I folded. After all that blustery bull crap I spouted a few posts back, I couldn't resist the call of the sea and I picked up a copy of Dreadfleet. BUT...I didn't lay out $115 for it. I gathered up some of my unused Warhammer model sets that I never got around to using traded them in for store credit. GW wouldn't give me cash back and I wouldn't break even on ebay and none of my friends were interested in taking them off my hands, so I figured what the hell. After all was said and done, I walked out with copy of a Dreadfleet and the novel and only shelled out $.081.

So at first glance, I'm happy with my new 'purchase'. The contents is first rate and I like what I've read so far. The back story is pretty cool - very spooky, ghosty. I'm about 1/3 of the way through the novel and I'm enjoying so far. I'll post back once I get the rules read.


  1. ROFL!!, Jeff go see my latest least I got mine against my own volition...anyway yeah despite my reservations, its very cool. the models rock. Nice on the tradeback, I think all people involved in GW hobby realize at certain point dont take the shrink off stuff until your actually going to build it, I traded tons of stuff back over the years.
