Sad thing is i would've had enough for the 40 stormvermin i needed and probably enough for queek with all the money i spent on dreadfleet. Still haven't played it yet btw. I think the only thing stopping me is i have to learn an entire new ruleset.

I will but i have to study up for my upcoming midterm of my history class. For the record to anybody that says otherwise the war of 1812 was apparently a draw. The british had some decisive wins in michigan and canada at first and eventually they did burn the white house down but one of their wins caused them to lose a famed general and after we won a naval battle at lake eerie the british were replaced by a more incompetent general that abandoned a fort and pissed off to canada where they made a stand and got gunned down and broke pretty badly esp. by a cavalry charge. They broke pretty hard and the big indian leader tecumseh was also killed. So basically yes the british, canada and the indians had awesome leaders but mostly they just caused a surrender without any kills at fort detroit and another win or so. Also very worth mentioning andrew jackson massacred about a thousand indians at another fort in tennessee. He killed all of them i think because he was merciless to british and indians. Then after the war ended word took over a month to get to them and andrew jackson's forces fought the british again in louisiana and massacred most of them while losing about 13 guys i think. Basically american forces killed at least many hundreds if not more british and only lost 13 guys. The treaty ended in a draw though so don't let anybody fool you into thinking otherwise. It was a war americans started and it started off rough for americans and hurt us in the white house but really nobody won that war. Everybody lost something and nobody got jack shit out of the war. Everything was left the same except for all those who died. Andrew jackson was turned into a war hero as were the other american generals that won that war. It's true what the teacher said that we love those that do well at what they do and in my opinion also win. It's a war everybody thought they won but nobody did. Anyway i've gotta study big time for my midterm.
Sorry but i just had to set the record straight there. Also i will check out dreadfleet a bit later maybe. I'm actually somewhat regreting buying it. I could've spent all that money buying more skaven and having enough stormvermin by now. Gonna take a while to get enough money to do that again. For now i've also been playing dragon age: origins. It's such a long ass game that it took me forever to decide to start it over again. So far i've gotten the elves to side with us after freeing the werewolves from the curse and killing the wolf spirit and zathrian. Then i got to orzammar and sided with harrowmont which is strange as i sided with bhelen last time. Both choices are probably shit but harrowmont is supposedly kinder and a good general that considers every dwarf life to be important. Also doing a bunch of side quests and shit to earn money and getting equipment. I'm in the deep roads currently in ortan thaig or the one after that.

Well it's actually the 360 version of dragon age and currently i've gone past the mage circle and beaten that too. There's not too much left. I really just have to handle the urn of sacred ashes and the whole redcliffe dealie and then try out the landsmeet and beat that too. After that it's mostly just gathering up the army and going to denerim to face the blight and kill the archdemon (a dragon). It sounds like a lot but i'm probably 2/3 way done or at least i think i am.

I think you should get together with some warhammer mates and give dreadfleet a go. You never know - you might love it. Do you know one of the ships is skaven and undead? It's the dead shark one, called the Skabrus. The Skaven crew are undead, also.

Yeah i know that it's undead skaven. I'm actually kind of surprised in the lore that the skaven ships were entirely decimated by that one beast but the skaven that survived inside it ate their way into the beast and killed it. However they all died from fumes and came back as undead. Then they used stuff like a screaming bell to retain their free will from the undead leader and used the carcass of the beast to make a makeshift ship. Strange enough that an entire fleet of ships died to that and the stats for it aren't extremely impressive. The skaven guns that go through armor are good but other than that not really. The main ship in dreadfleet is way more powerful i'm sure.

But for game balance they only really wanted a couple of powerful ships ; the 'Hammers', everything else is inferior to that, but could have other advantages. The 'cutter' type ships are fast, and gunnery ships pack a punch, but the 'Hammers' are the main flagships of each fleet.

It's role is basically going through armor. It's actually designed to take on the dwarf ship and make it it's bitch. That's what skaven do with dwarfs anyway so it makes sense but still it seems like there'd be other stuff involved. I think there's gonna be so much random chance in this game though. My roommate might have a much better chance at winning actually.

I will probably be playing the good guys for once since he loves vampire and undead. Meh i suppose it'll have its good things as well. For some reason i'd much prefer to play regular warhammer. People that thought of it as just a one time thing are kind of right i think. My interest in learning a new rules set only to play it a few times isn't very great. I think we'll play it at some time though. I'd rather focus on making my super rat death army though. I may change a few things based on what happens and performance.
