Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

Battlefleet Gothic is one of those Games Workshop games that I always meant to pick up for myself but never did. I’d sunk enough of my time and money into an ever escalating battle with the Butcher Of Nog and his Ork hordes such that my war funds could never cover the cost of an arms race in space against him as well 🙂

So as you can imagine I’m a happy chappy to find that getting my capital ship kicks is a whole lot more affordable now that the aforementioned Battlefleet is available for pre-purchase on Steam (and for around €3 less on the Humble Bundle if you’ve got the monthly subscription).

I’ve not played much, but what I have I’ve liked to date. It’s rather reminiscent of those old tall ship battles you see in movies with ships looking to gain a broadside against their enemies while they jostle for position. 

Here’s a video of the first level (tutorial) for the games campaign which gives you a feel for the game-play.
